Covering your Roo

Getting ready for the winter and I am curious as to what brand cover everyone uses to cover their Roo. I am looking at ADCO and Elements.

Thanks for the help.

I'd recommend not to.

Why not cover?

I used ADCO on my Roo and I've got one on my Mini Lite.

I use a Classic. Very similar in cost/quality to the Adco. Key is if you cover it, make sure it fits right and get it on tight. Any RV cover will be breathable so you don't have issues with moisture getting trapped under the cover.

We have an Adco for our 23IKSS. Works great and by covering, the roof isn't exposed to the sun for 4 months a year.

I always covered my Roo in the winter. Too many places to leak on a Hybrid. I also sealed around the bunks with metal duct tape. Never had a problem.

Do you guys keep it snug around the tops of the vents and the Ac unit or do you leave a little extra cover so the weight of the snow is not on the cover itself

I try and leave some slack for the snow. I know of at least one person who had a cracked AC shroud come spring. The vent covers are almost bulletproof but the shrouds suck. Even more so after they take a year or two of UV.

The service manager at my selling dealership advised against covering. Covers supposedly have rubbed holes in the roof membrane, obviously not a good thing. I was ready to buy a cover but didn't due to his advise.
