Cover advice

Hello all! I need to put my 17' in an outside space here in Seattle and wonder about the best cover to buy? Also, any experience with covering? I need to cover because it's in an urban area where things get "tagged" on occasion... unfortunately. Thanks! Happy travels ... Jan.

I posted this question earlier. I was looking at a Goldline, but I hear they r difficult to deal with as relates to their warranty. And their 5 year warranty is really only 2 years and prorated for the last 3 years.
I’ve decided to go with a PermaPro, although lighter and not water proof it does have a limited life time warranty that the manufacture, Classic Accessories, readily honors -no quibble- according to reviews on line.
I’ve learned good covers basically come in two categories: 1. those focused on uv or sun protection and 2. those for winter, snow protection. The latter r usually heavier and waterproof. In other words one would want a different cover if u stored ur rv in Montana vs Florida. Also what I’m learning is even good ones don’t last but 3-4 years if u r lucky.

Has anyone contacted the factory. Supposedly Escape is now selling covers again for their trailers. Customer service would be better with them.

I see ETI has a cover listed as an option for the 19 footer for $290. I don't see it listed as an option for the other trailers.

Yes I have. ETI I believe sells the PolyPro cover from Classic Acessories, but it is best for wet, snowy climates like Chilliwack. Im storing my 19 in Boulder Colorado, which has little precipitation, but a lot of sun, so Im primarily interested in the PermaPro cover also by CA, which provides better uv protection, but is not waterproof.

There's a cover on the 17 build sheet.
