Sorry for all the questions, this is first rig we've owned. Thank you again!
Covering skylights makes a lot of sense!

Considering the cost of custom covers that are made to fit, I will be using Walmart (I know, I hate that) plastic covers and I realize that it will take more than one, so to get proper run-off, I will get two, overlap, and drop the angle of the roofline.

I would not recomend a regular tarp to cover your TT. They will hold moisture and not breath. I think you would be better off not covering. By the way you might want to check prices on Ebay. That is where I bought mine 3 years ago. I think it was about 250$ and is holding up well. I think it is the expedition brand.

Any wear marks are usually the result of a loose fitting cover. In other words too much material left to flap in a windstorm. Buy one that fits your unit and you should be fine. The cover I use fits perfectly. I looked into a custom cover but the $$$ for them vs the same life span and cost of the Adco Tyvek covers convinced me to buy the Adco for now anyway.

I've used it for one Winter now and it held up just fine. I'm hoping to get a few years out of it, time will tell.

I have done all three options. No cover, bad idea. Blue tarp, cheap but pita and does more damage. Purpose built cover, best for reasons mentioned, and keeps pine needles at bay. My cover will probably last one more winter, 5 total. I don't need a ladder, I just walk on the roof.

Zippers on the side allow entry while covered.

Not to hijack thread, as I have been wondering the same thing. My txt has gutter extensions. How do you manage the cover without. Breaking these off?

I plan on buying a cover this fall.

If you plan on buying a cover, make sure to get one that won't "balloon". Ballooning causes abrasion marks..big time. My boat was hazed down one corner last year because of ballooning.
