RV cover

I'm looking for a good RV cover. I've shopped around but I need some real world advice. Thanks in advance.

ADCO

I purchased an ADCO Designer Series for our trailer. We live in SoCal so the primary objective was to keep the sun off the rig. Rainfall is typically light and we don't have to deal with snow.

The cover lasted five winters and when I removed it this Spring it was obvious from the number of small tears that it would not last another winter so into the trash it went.

For about $400 I am satisfied with the five years it lasted and our trailer is still in good shape. I bought another of the exact same cover and hope to get five years out of it. I also purchased the same cover this past year for my sister's Rockwood trailer and noticed that they have reinforced the areas where the tie straps attach to the cover, a needed improvement over my previous cover.

The attached picture shows the cover after four years of use and you can see it is still in fairly good shape. The extra rope around the trailer helps prevent billowing. The pool noodles prevent chafing at the corners.

I have used the Addco designer series w/ Tyvek. It's a good cover.. around me, the issue I have is mice. They seem to climb it and get inside the camper easily when the cover is on.

Just something to think about.

I have used mine for two years and it's still basically brand new.

Thanks. We live in central Ohio. Winters can be very cold with ice and snow.

You'll want the extra protection from the Tyvek then for sure.

I just put on a new Eevelle Goldline cover, it seems pretty good, itís a heavy duty marine grade fabric with lots of straps, vents, and zippers, weíll see how it holds up. Itís already covered in ice and snow .
