There's no flapping with mine.....Even if it flaps in your neck of the wood, does it keep you awake at night !!!

I'm trying to understand what's the big deal if they flap !

Because that's what ends up making it loose enough that the tennis balls fall off the gutter spouts. My thoughts for next year are to run a rope around the top, just under the spouts; hope this will keep it tight enough at the spouts that the balls can't come off.

I don't have a flap with mine their are many ways to take care of it , as far as the balls falling of I don't use then I take a swimmers noodle cut down to about 8 in and make a split down one side for all spouts and any place that will be a wear point and zip tie them. I place a large rubber mat over the tv antenna and then when that is done I place a large blue tarp over the over cover the adco cover and use several ropes to go all the way over and under the camper and ties them off so no flapping just very little to let wind under to keep it dry.

I had similar problems with the tennis balls and decided to give swim noodles a try. I cut them a 1 1/2" longer than the spout, slipped them on then put the cover on. Three winters with no problems. . .

Also used an ADCO for 6 years. Had no problem with flapping. But I probably didn't have as much extra on the ends as other folks as I pulled the cover over the spare tire and the propane tanks. That took up a lot of the extra material - and the straps did the rest.

Thanks very much for your replies about the Adco. Which type of Adco do you all have in snowy climates? Designer Tyvek or Sunbrella?

Here's what I have for my Mini Lite in northern Illinois (48" of snow last year, only about 2 ft this year):

ADCO All Climate + Wind Designer Tyvek RV Cover Travel Trailer, 22'1" - 24'
