Looking for some recommendations for a solid, quality cover for my new Springdale for the upcomning winter. Traditionally, I've stored my campers in a climate controlled underground facility for the winter months, however, I recently learned that my Springdale is too tall for this facility to accommodate it.

Any tips you can provide would be helpful!!

We used an ADCO for 12 years until it was in such bad shape from rodents and such that we disposed of it.
Now I'm debating buying another one or invest in a cement pad and canvas roof.
A good cover will do a lot to extend the life of your TT. Ours still looks like new including the graphics. I am certain the cover had everything to do with this!
The only caveat is if you get lots of wind. If that's the case the cover may not hold as up well.

I got 6 years from my ADCO cover. I would recommend it.

After two winters with our trailer uncovered in a field, we bought a lightly used (1 season) ADCO for 1/3 the price of new from someone locally. We used it last winter for 5 months in snow and wind and it worked great. One thing we did on our Springdale was to cut small pieces of foam pool noodles to cover the 4 roof gutters so the gutters didn't rip holes in the top of the cover. It worked well.

In my research on this calmark brand seems to be the highest quality. They custom make every cover to dimensions each customer provides. I understand they are a heavier material than adco. I priced one for my trailer 21 feet long is $750. So they cost more than twice what adco costs. There are different models within adco as I understand it too. I am also looking for a trailer cover and hope many who do have them share their experience.

Wow...for how much it would be for my 30 foot trailer, I could buy a metal carport to store it under.
