We had an ADCO from 2008-2015. Finally just shredded from all the winter wind.

Got an Elements last year- it seems sturdier than the ADCO, but it left hideous black streaks all over the entire camper- that won't come off with cleanser or elbow grease. No idea how a fabric cover can wreak that much havoc over one winter season!

I may be wrong but, I believe the cover is not the problem with the black streaks. That's your roof.

Our ADCO cover lasted 9 years in the PNW - so no harsh freezing or snow, but still wore out over time.

Its amazing how much a cover helps

Even Calmark says their covers will only last a few years. When I figured the cost of those to the cost of the ADCO, I can get two ADCO's for the price of one Calmark and still get about the same life out of either brand. And I didn't have to measure every angle of the build to get that custom fit. The Adco covers my trailer just fine with about 1 ft to spare on each end. Not to bad to tie down.

The Tennis Ball Idea I learned about here on JOF. The trick is to pad all the sharp edges. we use the Styrofoam Pipe Insulation for the gutters and OTA antenna on the roof just to avoid any rips/tears/cuts. LOL

What cover would be best?

Thanks!

The BEST cover would be a structure. I have a Carolina Carport with 10' legs that I store my trailer under. Snow is off my roof, rain is off my roof, I can leave my windows open in the spring, summer and fall to keep air circulating, it keeps environmental debris off my paint, it allows me to store my trailer with the slide open for easy access... but most important is EASE OF USE.

I back underneath when I get home, I drive out with I leave. I don't have to worry about tearing the cover... I don't have to worry about storing a wet cover... I don't have to worry about fighting with the cover in the wind... I don't have to worry about snow when we go to Florida in the winter, etc.

It wasn't cheap, about $2400 for a 31'x18'x10' carport... but its one of the best options for storing a camper. Only thing better is closing in the sides (optional), adding a garage door (optional) and heat/AC.
