I think I posted once somewhere that I have a adco cover but after looking at it it is actually a Expedition brand bought from Ebay it is over 3 years old and still going strong.

This is an interesting discussion, beautiful looking covers. I just want to add that starting with the 2014 models, the new paint scheme has added in UV protection from my understanding. Now, I'll have to consider the other points expressed. Prior to seeing this, we were only planning to cover the tires.

I really liked the cover on my old TT. However, we had a very wet spell and some destructive little creatures decided that the cover gave them a good place to live and stay dry. In the end, I ended up buying a new awning and had to patch many holes in the rubber roof.

I am currently contemplating one of those metal Carolina Carports for our fifth wheel. My in-laws bought one for the B+ and it has worked well for them. However, maybe a little tricky backing a fifth wheel into one from a 90 degree angle.

Just went to the BBB site and may look for a different manufacturer.

I haven't covered my for 3 years, lived in it pretty much full time, and the skin is still shiny. I know covers can hold in humidity, which isn't good for RVs/TTs. My belief is that they were made to handle the elements. At least for the metal skinned TTs.

In my part of California the worry is Sun and UV much more than inclement weather. I don't cover, but I do wash and wax regularly. I believe the wax is just as effective in protecting paint as anything else. Not worried about the roof, those membranes have proven UV protection and it will last longer than I plan to own my TT...that is unless I neglect the caulking and develop a leak, but I stay pretty diligent with that too.

I just bought a 2010 297BHS and it came with a cover. Is there any tricks to installing it? I assume I will need two (2) people and two (2) ladders

Two people will make the job easier, but I have done mine by myself before. Really not that difficult. Just roll it out on the roof and drape it down the sides and ends. Then it's just a matter of running the straps underneath and connecting the buckles, and securing the ends. Be sure to buy the right size for your camper, and the rest is easy. If you don't have a ladder on your rv, one is all that is needed. I do mine using just the ladder attached to the rear of my camper.
