Best winter covers for TT?

Hi all.....I've moved over to this forum from the Fleetwood and Ford Chassis forums as we sold our Bounder the other day. Bought a 2007 Skyline Weekender 180 which will get it's first test this weekend overnight. Any thoughts on this model would be appreciated.

But on to real question - I'm looking for a quality winter cover. I had what was supposed to be "quality" for the Bounder and it fit nice and snugly - I was proud of purchase.......

.....until a 60 mph wind blew threw that November and before I knew it, it was ripped to shreds. I was upset to put it mildly.

So although I don't need one yet, I realize there's only about 10 Fridays left until the first snow usually sticks in these parts. Might as well get after it....any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.

My coach, (which has never been covered). has been stored outside in Wisconsin winters for 19 years.
(I know far more RV owners who bought covers and only used them once than I know RV owners that use covers every year).

Learn from the past. The TT cover will be torn to shreds, too. Wash it, wax it with a fine fiberglass protectant like Meguiars or a cheaper decent product like Once A Year, and park it where tree parts can't fall on it. Winterize the heck out of it, and enjoy your winter.

The best winter cover other than a covered garage or indoor storage facility....none!
