Winter Covers

After 18 years, my trailer cover finally disintegrated itself last winter. It was a great cover, and I'm looking to get the same time out of a new one.

I see prices vary. Camping World carries Camco, Adco, and Classic Accessories, and they are currently having a sale on covers.

I'm in a climate where we see a decent amount of snow, but usually no more than a few inches accumulates on the trailer before it melts off. The trailer is parked in a spot that it doesn't see much sun and not a ton of wind. JohnB told me that there are different types of fabric for different areas of the country.

FWIW this is for the 2653.

Does anyone have any recommendations for:
- Brand?
- Fabric type?

Thanks,
Jon

I decided on the Adco All Climate + Wind cover through Camping World. It seemed to have decent reviews overall, even though you'll always find someone with an RV cover who has a problem. CW has a sale going on right now and with a 10% discount code on a pop up, it made the price better than Amazon or others.

I measured my 2653 to have a 24'3" box plus about 10" for the spare tire on carrier. The 24'1"-26' cover should work fine. I'll have to come up with a way to cover the tongue area for winter since RV covers aren't supposed to cover that part and my previous one did.

I literally just ordered it, so I can't comment on the fitment or how it holds up in wind yet.

Winter covers

I agree with John,

If you have a small leak and it freezes and thaws each time it freezes It could make the leak even worse . Just a thought.

Plus the fact it keeps it clean. No tree sap, no bird dodo. Help protect from uv damage. Might be cold in winter but sun is closer to earth at that time of year. Cover if you can inside storage better.

I was filling out the warranty card for the cover a few weeks ago, and interestingly it notes that the cover does not stop roof leaks. It's breathable material all over so it makes sense that water will get behind it at times.

Of course not all covers are made the same; my old cover had like a tarp material on the roof section, so I could see that stopping more water than the Adco.

So either way, make sure your roof seams are good before you cover. If you do make any touch ups, make sure to give the Dicor (or other sealant) time to cure before putting the cover on!
