travel trailer covers for out side storage?

Would anybody have any suggestions for a good quality travel trailer cover for outside and winter storage. I live in central Wisconsin, so weather can be hot and humid in summer and 20 below and lots of snow in winter. Any recommendations?

I'm with you wis-redneck. Chicago. Only we will spend winters in ours in Florida and will store it for the most part during the summer in Chicago with occasional use. We don't need an all season, just something to keep the sun from fading paint and wrecking the roof. All I see is ADCO and now CW is pushing "Elements". Only issue is they don't go to the 44'+ size we need for a 3990.

I have used the ADCO covers in the past, the one with the tyvek roof, it was super heavy duty. It had vents in the side so that strong wind wouldn't tear it up. It even came with patches in case it ripped. You still need to cover any sharp corners or they will tear real quick. My last camper was a tiny hybrid i think just over 20ft with the tongue, the one closest to fitting would stretch over propane tanks and tongue.

I was looking at camping world, and they have three brands that would fit my trailer.
Elements premium all climate $492.00 with 2 year warranty
Classic accessories perma pro $317.24 with lifetime warranty
Adco all climate $360.00 with 3 year warranty.
I'm leaning towards the classic accessories. Anybody have any experiences with these brands or have any other suggestions. I have some of the classic accessories wheel covers and they seem to be of adequate quality. Thanks in advance.

I have not had particularly good luck with trailer covers in the past. In the hot humid south they create a micro-climate underneath the cover that creates a tropical steam bath. It wreaked more havoc on the finishes on the trailer than leaving it out in the weather would have done. I have come to the conclusion that I am either going to have a hard cover aka RV carport/barn or just leave it out in the weather. For what I have spent on soft covers over the years I could have built a decent carport cover. YMMV

There is madness to my methods
