Some good, some bad. At my storage lot, 1 trailer with a cover was flapping all winter and spring. Now it's torn in 1 or 2 corners. Maybe poor installation but I don't have a cover.

I'm more worried about the damage to the trailer from a dirty cover rubbing on it, or a cover tearing up in the wind and ripping antennas, AC covers, etc. off my TT. Anyone have those problems?

I have used a cover for 4 years no Problem. I keep the straps nice and tight.
The cover goes on in Oct. and comes off about April. 37 ft 5th wheel.

Spent $300 on a nice looking cover that was supposed to last a long time. It was torn to shreds by wind and also a little squirrel wanted to make a home with it. Waste of money.

Had one when we had a trailer and it got to be a pain putting on and removing all the time.

It needs to be secured quite well as wind will do a number on it.

I had some rubbing issues on the front of the trailer where it took the paint off a small spot.

I've used a big blue tarp for two years now with no issues other than wife thinks it is ugly. Bunjies keep it tight.
