Default Cover for 2720SL

Greetings all,

After a long search online I just wanted to let you all know I got a really good cover for my 2720SL. Since I live in Las Vegas I needed a cover with a lot of UV protection so I got this Tyvek cover from Camping World and it fits really good. Lets see how it holds up in the extreem heat of Southern Nevada. Here is the link.

I need something for moist, humid climates that can hold up to wind too.
I have a (whats left of) adco cover, that is basically worthless at this point.
It lasted maybe 1 season. I guess if I want it covered I will just have to build a garage for it. Any other suggestions.

I have heard that Sunbrella is really the ultimate material for this sort of thing. Very UV resistant as well. I don't have any direct experience with it other than as a bimini top for a small boat, but it has held up extremely well in that application. It's been in service for over 20 years, but the boat is in the garage when not in use.

I have read good things about these folks (but haven't used them):

They make Sunbrella covers, and they are made domestically.

Anyone have one of these that can vouch for their durability. I think my biggest problem with the adco has been it tearing at the corners and any other points that stick out from the main body. Also, the adco allows water to pass through, that is fine in the summer months when it can dry out, but during the winter months, it has a hard time drying, and that causes problems.

Wow! What happened to your ADCO? What material did you buy? I seem to recall that they have three. I don't think any cover will stand up to abrasions on sharp corners, especially if it is oversized and floppy, or poorly tied down so the wind can worry at it. But other than that, mine has been great. Inland Maine is often humid and sunny in the summer, but nothing like MS, I suppose.

I have the adco 12295. I believe it is the same one you have. All I can tell you is I tied it down at all points and wrapped the baggy ends down and around as best as I could. Where I store the TM, it gets very little sunlight during the winter, so that is partly the problem. I am not saying that ADCO is not a good cover, it is just that it didn't hold up well in my situation. Once the fabric tears and the wind gets under it, it is all over. Every place that sticks out from the TM has massive holes in it. One side has about a 4 foot rip. The only thing I can think of that I could have done differently is take the cover off every time we have a storm. Who wants to do that? Right now, it is just sitting out in the elements. I can tell you, that is not good for a camper.
