RV Covers

We are comparing RV covers for an EPro 14FK prior to our purchase. We want to make a good first decision! Well known brands recommended and compared by the "experts", however, seem to have many poor reviews by actual customers. Could you please give pros and cons sharing thoughts on your RV cover purchases?

I have only tried one cover, an ADCO Designer Series, and I like it so far. Easy to install and remove.

Adco is a brand which is recommended by the so called experts, but durability seems to be a huge issue among many customers. We live in GA. The heat, at times exceeding 100, along with high humidity will be tough on most any cover I presume. Thanks for your comment.

RV Covers

We would love to hear from someone who has had a custom cover made.

I'm going to look at the covers from Classic Accessories Classic PermPro. They have a lifetime warranty to the original owner. Looks like they have either 4 or 5 star ratings on Amazon.

Thank you for responding. We looked at those covers, but there is not a cover offered for a 14 foot camper. Also, I believe less than 60% of customers gave it the best rating. For the various brands of covers we've looked at online, there are a large number of customers who have had issues with durability. I'm hoping someone responds with a lesser known cover which has served them well in the heat. Thank you again.

Beware of any non custom cover if you have high wind. My Adco cover was torn in several places after one winter use. We routinely have winds of 40-50 mph. Also, the cover left its mark on the trailer from constantly slapping against it. I now go without a cover. Good wash and wax before winter. Too much trouble to cover and uncover constantly in the summer. Lots of Wash & Wax All and 303. Also RV Armor on the roof. Expensive but likely the best cover for the top.

I use an Elements cover from camping world. Price wasn't too bad and it fits well. I have only had it for three months. Read the instructions, most people don't seem to do this and complain about the gutter spouts tearing covers. The Elements cover comes with spout covers and I have had no problems with ripping and when tied down properly no flapping. It also has zippered access to get into the RV with the cover still in place.


At camping world, one for your trailer is less than $300.

I'll just add my 2 cents for what it's worth from my experience. My last TT I bought the ADCO cover that was specifically made for my TT & then found out that if I covered my TT & something happened to the roof while it was covered, the company would NOT honor the warranty. My TT was not a Forest River, but I thought that was kind of strange that they make a cover specifically for this trailer & then if something does happen to it while it's covered, your warranty is no good, SMH.

I use an Elements cover too and am quite happy with it. For a small additional fee, they also offer a 3 year no questions asked replacement guarantee. If it rips, tears or otherwise fails for ANY reason, just bring it back and they wil give you a new one no questions asked.

When you go to the Camping World website and select your cover, at checkout you will be given the option of buying a 3 year protection plan.

Thanks for info. I will check out our warranty in regard to this.
