Do You Use An All Weather Cover?

I live in SoCal where we get sunny days for the most part and I'm looking to buy an all weather cover which will cost me significantly more than just basic cover. I like that the all weather covers are thicker but do they last long enough to warrant the higher cost? Would it be cheaper to just buy a basic cover that I will probably replace every other year anyways? From the prices I see at camping world I'm looking at a $200 - $300 difference. Thanks for any help in advance.

We live in SoCal and use a cover. We use a mid grade cover - about $300 range - and change the cover every 3-4 years when the Tyvek starts to shred/disintegrate. Plus the cover gets a bit soiled from constant dirt/dust blowing in the wind and cleaning a cover that big is problematic.

Here is what we found in our research:

Camping World prices can essily be beat by searching on-line for the exact type...and other brands. Just be sure to avoid the "Universal" covers. They are poorly made, will flap in any wind, and can 3asily blow off the RV.

Best luck
