ADCO covers

Has anyone had any experience with the ADCO covers for their TT's? When I picked up the box, I was very surprised how light it was.

Here's a previous thread on the topic of covers you may find useful:

Opinions vary.

Had mine on for over three years now in Michigan winters. Only had to patch a couple of small holes from abrading. Store it in an old trash can. Light is good so I can put it on and off by myself.

Does it protect the paint well? I wonder how it would do here in Texas where it gets a tad bit warm in the summer months.

I had one on my last 30ft TT and it ripped down the gutter line where winds rubbed it through until it finally tore 3 months into the first season. ADCO did replace it FOC but it took 2-3 months to get the new one. They required a sample of the torn section for inspection and upon review deemed it a fabric failure. The replacement is still going strong under the new owners use as far as I can see when I pass by it.

They are more hassel then they are worth based on the results I experienced. They can scratch the sides and will tear along gutter spouts. One and done with my experience.

They will keep the UV rays off your unit and the rain on top only as that is where the Dupont wrap is.

I feel it does protect all of the trailer. Paint, decals, and the rest. I have vent covers and leave them open but when the cover is on I need to protect all of the sharp edges. Using swim noodles sliced lets me get most of the spots but the level on the front has gone through some of the cover.

I'm finding that if I reinforce the wear spots it will last alot longer.

If I go out to the TT now, it is along side the house, and lift the cover there is water running down the side of the TT. Due to the cover breathing the water does evaporate quickly and I've not found any mold or any discolorations.

I'm real happy with it after 4 years. However, I only put it on during the winter. It is a pain if I'm going out in another two or three weeks. I also can't put the slides out if the cover is on the TT.

That alone is my biggest gripe.

I had one for my previous popup. Within several months of my early Arizona spring/summer season the top had multiple tears.

I have an almost new one from our old trailer. It was a 32' fifth wheel. I never used it. It looked like more trouble than it was worth.

Those covers are designed to separate you from your money... the forum are full of people complaining about the damage they have done to the finish..
