Cover recommendations?

Any cover recommendations? I live in Northern VA and get some snow/ice/wind. It seems like most of them only last one winter.

Thanks!

in 20+ yrs first with a tt and now a class c, we never covered them. when not traveling the rv sits in our driveway UNCOVERED. waste of time and money. just keep it washed and use a spray on UV protecter like 303 aerospace protecter, twice yrly. enjoy the rv.

We have an Class C in Michigan. Bought an ADCO Designer series a few years ago, paid around 400 bucks.

Once you put it on and off a couple times it gets easy and fast. It has some nice zippered panels to make it easy to get inside when it's on.

Do I need it? Probably not but I like having it.

A good cover is not a waste of time or money ! I have covered my 5 th wheel which has full paint since new . It still looks new after 9 years in the S Cal sun . Rain and snow will have less opportunity to get in . A top brand l use is Goldline . 5 yr guarantee . They back it up . 4 years old on one and sun rot on the roof covered portion . I sent them a picture and they sent me a new one . They are not cheap about 800 for a 35 ft one but they are much better than Camping world . Had one they donít last .

Cover questions are always entertaining on here... As you can see above there are two camps who are diametrically opposed

I am in the cover camp. I have had 4 different units over my life and every one of them has been covered. Most commonly I have used ADCO and each of them has lasted a minimum 4 years. My current cover is a different brand, which sadly I cannot remember the name of... it is a lighter material which made me nervous but three years in it is holding up as well as my ADCO's.

For me the cover is a common sense protector and a great insurance policy. The protection against sun damage on your paint and roof is money well spent. But for me the real life saver came when one of my sky lights cracked during the winter and was not caught by me until after the spring thaw. The water resistant cover meant that I had no intrusion from the broken sky light, without the cover I would have suffered significant damage.

I have one listed in the "for sale" section if it would fit.
