Question RV Cover for Hummingbird

Any one have any suggestions of a good RV cover for the Hummingbird?
19'9" total length.
Needs to be good in wind and rain.
Pacific Northwest gets wet and cold. (Not long weeks of freezing cold
.)

Most RV owners choose the covers made by ADCO;

Another vote for ADCO. On the second season with a Travel Trailer Designer Series Tyvek Plus Wind Universal cover. I'm also in the Pacific Northwest and am happy with the job it's doing. Since the Hummingbird is a new model you might need to find a comparable R-Pod model from an external dimensions perspective and use that to locate a universal size that should fit your unit using ADCO's Sizing tool.

Adco would be fairly good choice budget wise, but there are some reports that they are not holding that good in wind, and the fact that they are "semi-custom" would mean that you'll get cover that is too big for your rv and you'll have to deal with excess material by strapping, tucking, etc.
I'm currently looking at custom sunbrella cover for my trailer: http://www.calmarkcovers.com

You can get an ADCO cover custom made to your specifications as well. Same basic process as the Calmark covers. However, I've not really seen any issues with wind and my universal cover. My trailer is only 7' wide but there are plenty of appropriately placed straps and buckles to allow it to be snugged up nicely.

Adco has some weird semi custom process, you can customize length exactly, but they don't even ask for width nor sloped surfaces...

I have a new ADCO Tyvek Designer RV cover that is designed for long storage and wind. it was not cheap but neither was my TT. I bought mine from a friend of mine that owns a RV repair shop in Delta by the tunnel.

I bought this one for our 17RK, the one designed for the R-Pod 179 should fit well.

I'll let you know how it fits once we pick our TT up next week.

I figure if it will last at least one season it will give me time to build our permanent structure, but I'm guessing that it will last at least a couple seasons.

of course if I was in the States, it would be far easier ordering! (And cheaper)

I purchase a ADCO 3480 18.1-20ft for my RK, Its fits pretty good. You have to lower the the antenna. It has zipper access for the door and the the storage door under the bed. The side rolls up and it has a built in velcro strips to hold up the flaps after you roll it up. It has all the straps you need to tight it down. I am pretty happy with it. It was with get the cover or pay 1K for somekind of protection spray. Best Wishes
