I had an ADCO cover for my Fox Mountain for 5 years. Zero issues. I put tennis balls on all the gutter extensions. No tears in 5 years. It was heavy but doable. Not something I would want to take on and off throughout the year. It went on at the end of Oct and came off at the end of April or so. 5er was always as I covered it when removing the cover.
I got the ADCO Tyvek style cover. Out here in Oregon it rains off and on pretty much from Nov to May so the less water pouring on the RV is a good thing IMO.
When I we got our ORV I left the cover in the Fox under the bed. Still several more years of use out of it.

I think location and weather situations play a part in how long they last.

two takeaways from installing a roof top cover

We got just a roof top cover and it fit fine. We did find, though, that the stitching holding the plastic buckle-clips sewn to the rear wheel anchor bars would rip out if the hold-down webbing were cinched up while connected. Two takeaways: unclip the webbing, shorten the length and then clip back in; and, before using the anchor, take the webbing off and have the stitching reinforced. I had to drill out the aluminum rivets holding the webbing on so DW could sew it, but a tech screw secured the now reinforced webbing back onto the anchor pipes.

Camco Ultra-Shield Covers?

Has anyone tried the new Camco Ultra-Shield covers? They look interesting. I have in the past used the Classic PermaPro and like it on past trailers but just moved to an ORV and need a new cover so looking at the options again. The Camco one looks pretty heavy duty (yes heavy) but interesting. Any thoughts on it?

Havn't tried that one- but i am sure it will not cover the sides all the way--Our ORVs are just to tall.

I'm using the Classic accessories PolyPro 3 Deluxe and it fits reasonably well and is long enough to just wrap around the tin on the bottom of the TT. I'm on my 3rd season and the cover is doing great, no complaints at all.
