Covers for Travel Trailers?

Thinking about getting one of those special covers designed for travel trailer to keep the sun and rain off of my trailer. Does anyone have one? It looks like they range in price anywhere from $150 to $500+. Some have zippered door that make it easier to get into the trailer if you don't want to pull the entire cover off if you need into it for some reason. Some are one single piece (a paint to put on?)

Any opinions on these? What's a good one?

CrossRoads dose not recomend Covers for their units They say that they are to loose and can ruin the finish on the sides and wear out the corners of the units with the movment of the cover caused by the wind

We had a cover for our 5th wheel (also have one for our motorhome). The cover did exactly that: It was loose fitting and the back corners rubbed leaving marks--didn't look like it did any other damage though.
Then one January windstorm the cover took flight. I found it about 100 yards away from the camper entangled with another camper's cover--that was the end of that.

(The cover for our motorhome fits a lot tighter and seems to do a much better job at protecting it.)

Over the long haul I believe a metal carport would be cheaper and do a better job and save the hassles of taking it on and off.

If you have the room, opt for an RV carport

Invested in an RV carport which is great, three sides completely closed in. Keeps the sun from destroying my RV. Fabric covers do not last long.
