Can anyone recommend a quality cover for my 5th Wheel. It needs to be stored for a couple years. I’m currently looking at ADCO, Camco, and Classic Accessories. 5th wheel is just over 40’ if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

HERE

I bought one for my 1985 Chevy Silverado about 9 months ago. We had some heavy winds an there was a small tear. I sent pics and for $30 shipping they had a new one in my possession in less than a week. Lifetime warranty and really keeps the elements out.

Try National RV Covers. Last longer than the warranty. Use extra “all the way around” straps every five feet however. HF has inexpensive straps.

These are car covers. They are looking for a 5th wheel cover.

or search this Forum for `RV cover'. Lots of suggestions including mine that recommends a Sunshield tarp. EZ on and EZ off and does not hold in moisture that can create mold/mildew.

I've had two ADCO's, and they did a good job.

schlep1967, go back and take a closer look at their home page, they not only make car/truck covers but jet ski, motor cycle/scooter, golf carts, and others to include RV covers.

The ADCO cover we are using on our 38' 5Ver fits very well, and has held up great.....considering it is now 13 years old....now, it was used first year on our 2009, then we stored it away....until we put it on the first year with our 2019.....it was always big on our 34-ft 5ver (which is why we stored it), but fits very nicely on current trailer - doesn't flap to much in the wind. It also has alot of straps to keep it snug and zippers so that we can still get inside or open storage doors.

We protect the gutter spouts and King antenna to avoid tears.

IMO, the key is to have a good fit.

I hope this helps.

Although the Adco worked well, never did like the fit , I too used it for a 38' , and it was for 38-41 . So it has to fit up to 41 ', so had a bit to deal with at the back end of the fifth wheel . I would still get one again . Have always wondered if I had got the one size down it would of fit better .
