Covers

Can anyone recommend a good cover for winter for a 2013 XLR thunderbolt? We have it stored in a climate controlled facility this year but we don't want to do that next winter and are looking for a good quality cover that won't break the bank.


Thanks in advance any help is appreciated.

Different specs for different regions and expected winds. That said we just bought an ADCO brand for wind and cold weather, set us back just over $400. All the indoor facilities in our area (Western PA)were booked by end of October which is what we thought we wanted. The season rate was $400 so it was same as cover. The cover was easy to put on with 2 step ladders and having it in the driveway to tinker with is a huge plus. Good luck.

I use one from ADCO that fits pretty good. Haven't had any problems with it, and I like the idea that a cover protects the finish.

After 8 years we replaced our Adco cover. Not because it was bad, we bought a bigger trailer and it doesn’t quite fit. We gave the old cover to a friend.

We had purchased ADCO covers for all our units except for our current class A, we bought a off brand from Amazon and am very happy with it, seems to be thicker, better quality and was much cheaper. We only cover it in the winter and are in a rainy moderate climate but I would not hesitate to look at other brands in future.

This is encouraging! Covering includes winterization but $5 of RV anti-freeze is cheap and was easy to do thanks to this forum. The storage fee for one season being equal makes any year after the cover lasts savings. Many don't have driveway space or have an unfriendly HOA so situations differ, riding around it looks like half aren't covered so there is that opinion.
