I purchased a cover from Calmark and am quite happy with it.

I have used the Escape supplied cover for the last two Oswego winters (100" + of snow) and the wind has "flapped" it enough to wear through the lower front corner of it. Not sure I'll go to the trouble of trying next time I'm here for the winter, which, hopefully won't be this winter - I'm heading south!

I had Calmark send me a sample of the Sunbrella fabric they use for their covers. When it arrived I was a bit disappointed as it seemed quite thin and not really durable looking. For the price they were going to charge (over $600) for the Escape 19' cover, I am really wondering if this is good value. Anyone else on this forum have any recent cover successes with a less expensive product?

We ordered one off eBay for less than $100, and it is as good as the original $600 one we got from Escape, which lasted 2 winters. Just be sure tp pad any corners such as the TV antenna and solar panel if you have one.

I'm hoping to use mine over the winter at least one weekend a month, making it hard for the dirt to stick to a moving target

I picked up a cover for my 19' from RV Covers for $183 plus shipping. Delivery was about a week and the quality seems good. Fit was not bad but the cover was a bit big. Here is my 19' after a bath and again when all tucked in under the covers and ready for bed.

I tried covering the tanks but the fit was not great. Will try this and see how it works out. In any case, I am not terribly concerned about keeping the plastic propane tank cover out of the weather.

On the RV Cover site the list price for a 16 - 18 foot cover is $184.99 and the 18 - 20 is $204.99
Did you get the 16 - 18 cover or have they raised their prices? Looks like a decent fit.
