RV Cover for 2000 Newmar Dutchstar

We just bought this RV and would like to purchase a cover for it. Does anyone have any suggestions on RV covers that have worked for them? We have looked at different brands online, but just do not know what would be best. We are in an area where winters are mild to medium.
Thanks!

I used an Adco cover from Camping World for a couple years. It was not real expensive and lasted the two years I needed it. I paid an extra $90 for extended warranty and after two years, I returned it to CW for a new cover and sold the new one for 3/4 the price I paid for it originally.
If you do use a cover, take care to pad all the protruding items like vents, ladder, awning ends etc.

I used to cover my coaches (30 feet) but they are a pain to put on and take off and most of them are cheaply made (Gray ones) and don't last more than a year or so. And don't have them rub on anything or they will tear. The best one that I had was a Sunbrella, very expensive and very heavy but it lasted a good 5 or 6 years. I would not bother trying to cover my new motorhome since it is 35 feet and too much trouble to do.

When I went to remove the cover after the first winter, I bought a 55 gal garbage container. Parked the bin at the back of the MH. One person on the roof to pull up the sides and direct the cover while a 2nd pulls it into the bin, worked like a charm.
