Ebay super fabulous RV cover results....

I recently purchased my first ever class A motorhome cover. It was listed as a super duper monster fabulous, end of all problem covers for an unbeatable price! (I know, dont bother saying it) Long story short, I basically got blown off by the seller after sending them ten emails complete with pics. The problem? When I finally got around to installing it, it had developed rub throughs in less than a week in areas that didnt at all seem sharp, like the rear ladder and the bottam of the rear bumper. It was supplied with a sheet of paper size repair sheet, that of course, I didnt expect to use for a long time, it is the fabric that the cover is made of with self adhesive on one side, to repair the rub throughs. Of course, I have made the summation that this is a one season cover. My question to the masses, does anyone know of a supplier of this type of product, this sheet of paper sized repair item, as I have already had to use mine up?
thanks in advance,

I'm not sure of what material your cover is made of and if you can find the stuff, it doesn't sound like it'll hold up anyway. You might try going to West Marine, or similar, to buy sail repair tape. It probably will hold up better in chafe areas and the adhesive will stick to almost any clean surface. Sail makers will have it as well...it comes in different sizes. Bob

It would be useful if you post the brand/model of the cover.

Awning repair tape is readily available. It is clear, so "matches' anything. Camping World sells it, for one.

My Adco cover got wear-thru spots within a couple of weeks-- at the edges of the air horns, the edges of the slide awning bracket, the edges of the rain gutters, where the radio & CB antenna bases stick out--to name a few. But after nearly a year, including several decent windstorms, NONE of these spots have gotten worse, the holes aren't tearing or getting bigger. The rest of the cover is like new. I've had it off and got it back on, and with the wear holes, it's easy to get it right where it was.

We DO plan on repairing the holes, but we're going to wait and see how long it takes for them to actually get worse.
