Pop up camper covers?

We are taking delivery on Saturday and probably parking it in our daughters backyard across town. Either there or in a storage facility. Either way it will not be under any kind of building protection.

Any recommendations for covers?
Brands, types?
Should they be put on whenever parked or just for off season?

My only experience is with ADCO, but am very happy with their covers. They fit well and after 3 years of use the cover is still in great shape.

Takes 20-30 mins to install or remove. I only use it for winter / long term storage as I can't see going through that effort every time I park the camper.

EDIT: didn't notice you said you had a pop-up, not sure what Adco has for those. I happen to have a Hybrid at the moment, hence the 20-30 mins effort comment.

Ours was fine parked outdoors year round.

No cover for the summer, but washed the roof well a couple of times a year to keep it tidy. In the winter, we parked under a very large pine tree at my mom's. We would tarp it for the winter primarily just to keep the needles and sap off. If you tarp, just be sure it is a good quality tarp that won't bleed onto the cover. After 7 winters, there is very little wear on our tarp.

Many people shy away from tarps, but our experience has been good.

One advantage of the pop up is that the roof is very easy to check for damage or leaks. Ours needed a bit of fresh sealant on the edges at the end of 7 years, but was relatively easy to maintain, and there was no fading or weather damage apparent.

Our pop-up is parked on our cement parking pad (no garage cuz we live in a downtown neighbourhood!) It's covered with a reflective Harbor Freight tarp and few bungees. We created a kind of ridge pole set up with pvc tubes/pipe pieces that sits atop the roof. That makes a small tent like space with the tarp. That way there is plenty of airflow. Moth balls underneath...and we haven't had any issues - winter or summer.
