I'm looking to replace my RV cover and wondering if one on the market that will last more than 18 months.

My Expeditions have lasted the warranty period...2 or 3 years depending on which model I buy. However, I add six straps evenly spaced front to back for wind.

I have an Adco cover I bought and installed on my last tt in 2011. It is just starting to show wear. I’ll probably replace it this season before it does rip, and I wouldn’t hesitate to get the same one.

I do have the Adco that I bought on the 23 of April last year and I checked on it today at storage and it all tore up on the front cap. It says it has a three year warranty. Very disappointed with mine.

I don't know about RV covers, but I've had very good luck with the truck covers I've bought from Empire Covers. They usually go on the truck in the fall after we travel, pulled off in the spring for another trip, and then go back on the truck for the summer. The last one lasted 6 years before the wind finally got to it.

I've not had any luck with RV covers period.

Major mildew apon removal and fading from where cover rubbed during the off season.

I've not covered the last several years and are better for it, sorry.

Stupid question, but did you pad all sharp corners?

I covered my old 2003 Prowler with an Adco cover under trees and this was what it looked like after about 8 years.

I did replace it with another Adco and that one did well too. then I traded that old 2003 Prowler for $6500 in 2019 for my new 2019 Rockwood. They said the biggest selling point was that I had kept it covered in storage and it looked great and no leaks, no mold, no mildew.. The cover would be dry in a couple of hours after a heavy down pour.. We get a few of those in WA state..

Anyway, I have a new Adco cover for the Rockwood and it's been fine so far..

Sure, I can't open the slides with it on, but that's not a big deal for me.

Cover or not to cover... You'll get the horror stories on it and you'll get the good stories...

In the end, it's all up to you.. If your last Adco only lasted 18 months, what conditions was it in? High winds will rip it up for sure... I can see that.. I pulled too hard on the old one and it tore. I felt that after 8 years, it was time..

Good luck!

With ADCO, make sure you get a cover with the top made of the white Tyvek. It’s more expensive but lasts around 3-4 times longer in my my experiences with covers.

I had an Adco, lasted 1 winter, $300+/- in the dumpster.
I built a 20 x 40 metal cover.
