I read reviews for both their custom covers and generic covers, I focused on life expectancy, ease of use, and warranty. Seams like most felt as if they got what they paid for.
They use the large YYK Zippers and 9ft wide Sunbrella fabric to minimize the seam, which they triple stitch.
I will report back once I have more experience using the cover.
Thanks for the follow up, I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on the product when you get it, and how it fits. I've got an estimate on a CalMark for our 19' and have emailed and spoken with Paulo. I know the ADCO will be a bit cheaper, but I'd sure love to see a pic of one on an Escape to see the fit.

Thought I would bring closer to this thread, I installed my ADCO custom Sunbrella cover today, impressed! I did place pool noodles cut down the middle on the edges of the solar panel and 2 foam pieces on the jack and rear bumper ends for protection of the cover. Take a look.

Hey, thanks for posting the follow up with pics. Looks like it is a good option to the CalMark! How did you install? Ladder, poles?

During the first install I used both a ladder and pole, as the cover had been tightly packed into a box. I will take my time when uncovering in a few weeks in preparation for our fall trip out west. Im thinking about the best way to roll the cover to make the reinstall easier.

We roll ours from the front up and to between the Maxxfan and the A/C unit, and then roll the back up and to the same mid-point. Then the twin rolls slide off one side of the trailer into a bag.
To install, we attach a rope to the twin rolls, pull over the top of the trailer, then unroll in each direction.

Try to plan on folding and rolling it the same every time so you can place it in the easiest spot and unroll/unfold.
