Yes, I have a Calmark. It certainly does a good job but it's heavy and bulky so it's on the difficult side to put on and take off.

Dead grass sticks to the soft inside of it, if you lay it out on the lawn to roll it up it gets kind of covered.

I had an Adco for my last trailer, it was light enough to put on between uses, the Calmark I only use for longer term. I'll be putting it on in the next few days and pulling it off just before the first snow come winter. Heading south.

If you wait to long to order you can run into problems getting a cover, the tend to run out of stock.

Has anyone in the Pacific Northwest had any experience with a 17' Escape RV Cover?

Ours lasted 5 years. We stored our trailer outside in Squamish under trees. The cover made Spring cleaning a lot easier but the material eventually gave in to weather. We got it from Escape.

FWIW, that's about the same lifespan I got out of the better Adco cover, it was anything but a good fit though.
