Cover for 21 SS (first time owner)

Hope somebody can help New 2016 21SS ROO I'm looking for a cover that works best for ROO line most of the cover manufactures have a range say from 21' to 25' they appear to fit "sloppy" is this normal? thanks for the help

We have a 2016 Roo 23ws and bought the 24 to 26 feet cover from ADCO. It's a little too big, but I'm happy..... I can cover the spare tire in the back and the propane bottles and electric jack in the front.
Really don't care about a tight fit. I didn't buy the cover for the look !

Unless you go for a custom made cover sloppy will likely be the norm.

We had the 21' to 25' model on our 2011 21SS. It would have been pretty loose, but like Drenjoey, we covered the spare tire, rear bumper, propane tanks and electric jack with the 'extra'. It worked out pretty well.

Unsolicited Advice:
Our cover barely covered the camper top to bottom - leaving the tires almost completely exposed. If the cover you're looking at won't do much better you might want to consider getting something to cover your tires if they will be sitting out in the sun.

If your cover doesn't come with something to protect it from the gutter extensions (assuming you have them) cut off 4" sections of swim noodle and slip them over the extensions before you put the cover on.

Cut holes in some tennis balls and stick them on the extensions.

Yup, I used tennis balls for a couple of years and they worked pretty nicely.

But, I like the noodles a little better.
