Winter Cover for Rockwood Roo 19

Can anyone that owns a Rockwood Roo 19 tell me what type of winter cover they would recommend? This is our first year with our Roo and we are not sure what type of cover is best. Does Rockwood make custom fit covers for their Hybrids? I have been looking at ads for Adco covers. Are these a good product? Any advise would help!

Rockwood/FR doesn't make covers.
ADCO makes a good one but you need to decide which is right for your region.
i have a universal Aquashed one for my Roo 23SS and it fits fine.

Just bought the ADCO Tyvek "Universal Fit" cover for my 2012 Roo 19. It was on sale for $250 at Camping World. The smallest they make is for a 20ft TT. It doesn't fit anywhere near as nice as all the pics show. It's a foot or two too long and probably a foot or so too wide (better than being too small, though!). Biggest issue is the rain spouts that are at each end of the gutters that run the length of the trailer. When I put it on, one of the spouts immediately put a hole in the cover. The other 3 didn't, but I'm guessing after a winter of winds, they'll probably poke through. Not a show stopper for me at this time. I may have a different opinion next spring, though. The custom made ones are pretty expensive, and I don't think they have any allowances for rain spouts, either.

I put tennis balls on the spouts - works real well for us. Just make a 1 inch or so hole in them.

Good luck.

Good idea; wish I'd heard of it before.
