I've used ADCO from my Roo to my 5er. They are good for the price. Eventually all will get some wear spots.

Most of us have experience with only one brand of cover. Mine is an ADCO, as well. It works fine. One tip is to use tennis balls on the downspouts to help prevent tears in the cover and to make it easier to put on and off. Also, use the cinch straps under the camper and at each end to mitigate rubbing.

I have an ADCO too. This will be the 3rd winter for it, and it's showing very little signs of wear. I am going to try the tennis balls this year. That's a great idea.

You'll like it. Just slice an X into each ball with a knife and pop onto the downspout.

If you have leftover pipe insulation you can cut pieces of it to put over the downspouts too. The self sealing helps keep them on. Like the tennis ball idea also. Lots of downspouts on the 5er to cover.

Pics I've seen usually dont show it covering the LP tanks.
Cover them or not?

I had some room in the front and the cover fit perfect over the tanks!! Not sure if I'm going to leave that way for the winter, still have one more trip planned in a couple of weeks.

That's because they always show you a cover that fits the TT perfectly. Fat chance you'll get one that does, as they're usually ordered in 2 ft size increments, if I remember correctly. When I put mine on last winter (1st time) I had all the extra at the back, so I covered the spare tire, but realized later I should put the extra in the front and cover the battery and tanks. That's my plan this winter.
