Default ADCO Cover..my experience..

I bought an ADCO cover for my 22T and it lasted 2 years, then fell apart at the seams. I phoned the company and they were real nice. They asked me where I lived and I told them FLORIDA. I was told that the SUN rots the ADCO cover. Well, what are you suppose to do, park the "covered" HiLo in a garage. ADCO sent me a replacement and I'm on the end of the second year and lo and behold; I already have a seam that's coming apart. It's parked under some pine trees in the SHADE! The material is flaking off small bits of the "special" coating that's on the fabric.
I'm now going to build a carport type shed for my HiLo. Buying covers is a waste of money in my opinion. The sales literature oversells this product. I wouldn't be suprised if this product wasn't made in CHINA!

OK - starting to show some wear in an area that is up against a corner
and is probably getting whipped around by the wind. Will more than likely
check out the Calmark next time (but they're so expensive!) and need to
figure out some kind of roof system at least. IF I'm not going to get my
free standing garage/shed.

I used a ADCO cover the last three years. It is on the camper from October til April. It showed one wear spot after the first year, so I put bubble wrap on all of the sharp spots on the camper. The last two years there have been no wear spots but one of the tie down straps let go at the threads. Besides the tie down straps that are on the cover I also put on some nylon straps that lumber yards use to tie there lumber loads together. That works great. The wind doesn't bother the cover at all. Once it starts to snow, the cover is weighted down until spring.

I open my roof vents and place a cake of moth balls over the sink. Occasionaly I can smell the moth balls when I get near the camper, so I know that the cover is breathing. I have not had any moisture problems.
