I bought one of these for my Micro Lite 19fd. Works well for me in a dry climate. Not sure I'd cover my trailer in a hot/humid climate.

I bought this for our trailer. After 3 years of NW winters, it still looks great.

Not sure where you live but here in So. California the sun is what destroys the covers. I went through two in 3 years because of sun rot. This one has been the most durable so far for me.

If it's not too late here is my recomendation

I bought a Gold Shield 5L RV cover for my Geo Pro G19FD, 18 - 20 foot long. I purchased it from Carcover.com, not Carcovers.com This size is very generous and covers the wheels easily. I put a cardboard box over the TV and WiFi Ranger antennas to protect the cover (also folded down the radio antenna). I am going into my 2nd year with the cover and it is very well made and includes protective covers for the downspouts, and a large repair patch. I live in CA and the cover looks new after a summer of 80-100+ degree days and periodic high winds.

I bought a quality one (I forget the brand) for a good price.
Four years of PA winters, still in great shape.
BUT it has NO access panels, no zippers. That will be a must for my next one, whenever this one fails.

Have always used ADCO covers. Bought them at Walmart for best price. In the past the covers have only lasted 2-3 years. My latest cover was an ADCO 52245 which was purchased in 2016. It lasted 5 years and 7 months. We had a wind driven snow storm with winds at 70 mph back in January. It shredded the cover. When I was retrieving all the remnants I found that the entire cover was dry rotted. I could rip the fabric by hand. Over 5 years was a little too much to expect. Most likely I'll purchase an ADCO replacement.

Camping World has a great 3-year replacement warranty for RV Covers. I purchased their PRO-S Travel Trailer Cover back in 2019 when I bought my new Flagstaff SuperLite and every September/October Camping World has their huge RV Cover Sales. The salesman mentioned to purchase their 3-year replacement package, since covers will rip and tear over the long haul. So, I saved over $200 during their sale and purchased the replacement (3-year) option for only $61. So, this year, I walked in with my sales receipt and some photos of a few tears/rips, and they handed me a brand-new replacement.
I'm not a huge fan of extended warranties, but this was awesome. The sale clerk asked me if I wanted another 3-year extended warranty--sure thing!
My travel trailer is 28 feet long and I purchased the 26'-28'6" cover and it fit like a glove. The cover was outstanding and since I live in Northern California, I purchased it for the hot summers and high winds to ensure my trailer/roof doesn't dry out. Takes about 30 minutes to install (yes, you need to walk on top of the roof) and 20-30 minutes to remove it. Naturally, you'll never get the cover back in the original box, so I stored mine in a roll around 33-gallon garbage can for easy transport and keeps it dry.

Wolf pup 16 HE

https://forestriverinc.com/rvs/travel-trailers/wolf-pup/16HE/5399

I am pondering on getting a cover for my Travel Trailer. I spoke with manufacturer and was told they recommend against it? The rep told me their trailers are designed to withstand weather conditions and covers will cause mold an more problems than they provide solutions?
What is everyone heres recommendations?

I'm at a seasonal site and I'd say less than half the people in the CG cover theirs for the winter. More trouble and money than what they are worth IMHO.

Plus and minus on this. Some say yes, and some say no. I opt to save the money for a consumable cover and leave out TT in the yard next to the shop. No leaves, no bugs, no mold. Of course, others will say yes. But according to the manufacturer, the roof material has a 12-year warranty. Wind may chaff the trailer sides but no cover and this doesn't happen. Toss a coin for the decision. Neither will be wrong. But neither may be best.

What about the little rain spouts on each corner? Wouldn't a cover bend or break them off?

That's why most put tennis balls over them, before putting the cover on.
Or you can buy manufacturered devices, like these:

The car cover I received came with protective soft caps for the rain spouts. One did come off but it appears it was poorly attached so I just put it back on with silicone. The spouts on the GeoPro are very rigid and I had one of the soft caps come off the spout and it wore a small hole in the cover. The material appears to be rip stop and it did not tear. The only issue I have had with the cover is the California sun has caused deterioration. They replaced it very quicky and with no hassle with me just paying $95 in shipping for the new one. FYI, the Lifetime warranty is limited to 1 replacement on trailers.

Get a foam pool noodle at the dollar store and cut four pieces about 6" long.
