We have a new TC coming and I'm thinking of getting one of those shaped/fitted covers. Giant tarp I've been using on the old one is a pain, has worn paint off the edges of the corner alum, the PVC center frame won't work on the new roof, and the tarps only last a season or two.

I had one that came with the current camper but it wasn't well made and was torn and worn after two seasons.

So anyone have one that's good quality and durable they like?

Probably end up build a barn for storing the TC, but in the meantime....

New TC is a NL 10-2LE.

Thanks for the help!

I just got a Goldline cover. Have not even put it on yet. It appears to be much better quality than the “other brand” I have used previously.
I will post an update once I wash the camper and pout cover on.

Brought a top of the line Goldline, ripped second season, roof not water proof, for me only works to keep exterior clean and UV protection.

LINK, Classic Accessories Over Drive PolyPRO3 Deluxe Camper Cover

I bought this cover one year ago so this is only the second winter for it. It comes with a 3-year warranty.

I would buy it again.

I bought this one and it has worked well for the past three winters. Waterproof, adjustable, etc.

I bought the same cover for my camper. It ripped up pretty badly after 2 1/2 years. I sent pictures to them and they promptly sent me a new cover for free. I would buy another one also.

Glad to hear that. Not the part about it getting ripped up but that they took care of you.

That's HUGE these days.

I used my Harbor Freight 25% coupon on this one: https://www.harborfreight.com/20-ft-x-30........e-duty-weather-resistant-tarp-57030.html

I am hoping to get a couple seasons out of it, it is currently on the camper. This time around I put tennis balls over the sharp edges.

I also bought a Goldline 6-7 yrs ago still looks like new, and I use it ALOT. Another thing I do (today) is before a snow, I have a 10x20 tarp I throw over the cover and pull it taught enough, so I hardly get any cavities (around A/C) and most of the snow slides off by itself. I started doing this after a few big sno's and the thaw/melt cycle would create big blocks of ice in the cavities created by the weight of the snow. I remove the tarp after the snow to let the cover breath. The cover is not 100% waterproof but close, it sheds most of the water. Makes a huge difference with black streaks, and it's good UV protection.
