Our Adco cover is 8 years old and on its second TT. It now has a few thin spots where I didn’t pad correctly. May have to replace it next year, but I think I got my money’s worth. When we traded our previous tt in at 6 yo, it still looked new. I only cover in the winter.

If a cover is water proof, it will keep the water out and keep the moisture in. You want a breathable one.

^True stories here and without the usual nay Sayers about RV covers, which is a welcome relief.
Only used a cover 1 year on the camper, in an area that got a lot of snow and I found out quickly that it was difficult to remove snow from the breathable roof material and that thawing would produce massive icecicles that clung to the fabric.
Got a thaw mid winter and got all the snow gone and added a plastic tarp over the top.
Problem solved, it was easy to pull the snow off and prevented the ice from forming.
Ice damaged the cover significantly in just a couple months.
