Default Cover for storage

We have a 2720SL getting ready to store for the winter. Looking for the best cover to get and should I get it from camping world or would on line be ok? Looking for recommendations and also part # for my size trailmanor. Thanks for your help.

A lot of us have used one of the ACDO covers designed for the HiLo. The only thing I've found with mine is that any sharp corners will tear the cover. I'd look at any sharp corners and pad them before covering.

I really do like how they strap on. They are very secure.

I have had good luck with the Adco cover #12252 which as Larry mentioned is used for Hi-Lo travel trailers. https://www.adcoprod.com/Universal-R...i-Lo-RV-Covers I bought the SFS AQUASHED version.

There is more info in this thread; https://www.trailmanorowners.com/for...ght=adco+cover see post #2

As mentioned, ADCO Aqua-shed covers are a favorite, and the size designated Hi-Lo is the most common choice. For my 2720SL, I chose a slightly smaller version (12295) because I feared that the extra fabric on the larger one would flap in the wind and rip. I was storing in an open windy parking area. The 12295 comes down not quite to the ground (less material to flap), ties down just as Dick mentions, covers the propane bottles, but does not quite cover the hitch.

Either should work well for you. Again as mentioned, the most important thing is to make sure the wrap is tight (no flapping), and you generously pad all sharp corners and edges. The batwing TV antenna turned out to be the worst for me. Check out
