Cover recommendations?

Hey guys, i'm interested in purchasing a cover for my Eagle HT 26.5BHS and just simply looking for brand recommendations as well as brands to stay away from.

By all means I dont expect a cover to last a lifetime, just want to make sure it's a good fit, and that it doesn't mar/scuff the exterior finish.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I don't have a brand recommendation, however I would recommend ensuring its a breathable cover.

I have two from ADCO one for my North Point and one for my slide-in camper. Both have developed holes after one year of use. Just can't recommend that brand.

I bought one off the Camping World website called an Elements All Climate. Works great. Be sure to use tennis balls on the drain spouts if you have them.

Is it pretty soft on the inside, or at least the part that touches the paint?

I'm getting another Carver 8oz polyguard soon for our new trailer. Had one for our class c we just sold and it held up well. The non canvas ones don't last. They are pretty heavy, so be prepared for that. Mine was 80 lbs for my 31 ft motorhome.

I went with a Camco cover from Wally World. We store our trailer indoors for the winter months, but keep it covered at home - we have large maples that drop a lot of crap. I love this cover as it saves me a ton of work keeping the trailer clean and shiny. It's cool to watch the cover "breath" thru the top vents when the wind kicks up. I'm on my 3rd season with it and no tears yet. I just have to wrap foam around the rain gutter extensions and some bubble wrap around the awning poles. Love it.

All in all, the whole cover is soft. We live on the east coast and had a pretty bad winter last year. 4+ ft. of snow. And it held out fine. The inside is pretty soft and I didn't notice any paint buffeting on the unit at all. It dries pretty quick as well and, as long as you measure correctly, it fits like a glove. Be ready to have a pretty good size place to store it during the camping season. My wife kept the box..like I'm gonna be able to fit it back in it. Um no. We ended up using a new square plastic 39 gal trash can to store it in our basement. But like I said, use the tennis balls on the spouts.

Is it a Sunbrella material? They look nice, maybe on the pricey side. Looks like to cover our 30' fiver I'm looking at about $700'ish
