Cover recommendations/sharp edges around exterior bunk latches

Can anyone recommend a specific brand/model of a cover? I'm going to purchase one but have read many negative product reviews. I'm also concerned about potential damage to the cover due to the sharp edges around the bunk latches. Any suggestions on how to cover the sharp edges before putting the cover on?

Hey matsoap...

I have a X23B and we use the ADCO cover, it was a really nice fit. This is our first winter with it, we store our TT outside and I thought some protection is better than none.

You can use a tennis ball to put over the rain gutters and latches to protect the cover. Just make a hole in the ball and they should slip on.

I also use an ADCO cover. Went without one for many years. Due to my own stupidity, I bent the top of one bunk end. So I bought a cover to prevent problems. I have used mine 2 winters now. Still looking good. I use the tennis balls. Also swimming pool noodles or any foam. You can carve the noodles to fit around any edges. Be sure to get a cover that you can draw tight with ropes. The flapping cover is what scratches some people's rvs.

We use a Classic industries cover & cut holes in plastic baseballs to go over the down spouts. All has been good for the last three years. Larry

I wanted to revive this thread to give a plug for the ADCO cover and their customer service. We purchased an ADCO cover last June. It is a bit of a pain to put on and take off, but I like the way it protects the camper. I can wash the camper, put it away and when I go back to get it, its nice and clean. This spring and summer has been especially bad in Central Florida for rain. We have had heavy rain nearly every day. With the humidity it makes it nearly impossible for the cover to dry out before more rain comes. In the spring the cover was fine. By June the front end of the cover deteriorated to the consistency of tissue paper. I was disappointed that my $330 cover was ruined after one year. Of course I could not find my receipt so I called Camping World and with my name and address they sent me a copy via email. I called ADCO. They asked me to photograph the damage, send them a copy of the receipt, and a photo of the manufacture tag on the front of the cover. I already had photos and receipt so I put together an email with attachments and sent it. Within one hour an ADCO representative called me and said they were shipping me a brand new cover. I was impressed! No fight, no one tried to tell me I improperly used the cover and the decision was fast. The cover has a two year warranty and they honored it. If you are considering a cover, this might help you choose the brand.

About the sharp edges from the rain gutters. I took one of those foam swimming pool noodles and cut it into 3 inch sections. The gutter ends slide snuggly into the holes in the center of the noodle. Gutters never damaged the cover.

We use the styrofoam from product packaging that we have bought over the years for sharp edges, roof vents, etc.
