Review of the Adco Olefin HD All-Climate and Wind RV Cover

What's up everybody It's AJ with Today we'll be checking out this ADCO RV and travel trailer cover. It's gonna be olefin. So it's gonna have that high quality cover, good for all weather climates and even against wind. It's gonna hold up, it's great for, your storing it for the winter time. Go to put it away.

Go ahead and throw this cover on there that way, it keeps it nice and neat, it doesn't get all dirty. No streaks on or from the elements or anything like that that. That way when you take it off, when it's springtime, it's good to go. Let's check it out. These covers come in a few different sizes.

So if you're on our website make sure you just go ahead and try and get the one closest to your rig. What we did was we measured from our spare tire back here all the way to front, and got the closest one for that. You can see ours is still a little bit baggy. We probably could have gone down the size. So I overestimated the spare tire and the propane tank up front, but it's not too bad, it's not that bad.

You have the straps here on the back and the front that you can pull together to bring it nice and tight to the rig. So then that takes out a lot of that extra slack. Here in the back, I just wanted to show you a close look at the straps I was talking about that helped adjust. We have two corner straps at the top and then two corner straps at the bottom, making that four here on the back side, and there's gonna be four on the front side as well. And what those do is, you'll pull those tight, it'll cinch around the corner, so it brings up that bagginess, gets that out of those, each one of those four corners on the front and the back.

Then we have these center straps that pulls the cover in from the sides to gets a little bit of tightness here on this side and that side just by bringing it in here in the middle. You're gonna have two of these here on the backside, and you're gonna have two more on the front, so that's gonna be four of those in total, just to help you adjust that cover to fit your rig. Down here on the bottom, we have the belly strap, so we have a bunch of those that go along the bottom of your rig and you can cinch them up. That brings the cover here at the bottom, closer together, nice and tight towards the side of your rig. That way when the wind blows, it doesn't come up underneath the cover and kind of make it bellow out. Taking a look at the fabric, this very breathable fabric. So it's gonna make sure that no mold builds up when you do have this on there. If it was to get rained on and stop, it doesn't have the moisture get trapped on the inside not being able to get out. So not only is this breathable, it's got two vents on each side to help that air be able to travel in and out and let that sub dry out there, and also gonna protect against wind, dirt and dust. I do recommend you go ahead and clean your rig before you throw the cover on there, that way it's clean. When you pull it off there, just to prevent from scuffs or just stuff building up over time too. So I was talking about how weather resistant this is, I'm gonna pour some water on it to show you how it just rolls right off. It doesn't really soak in. So we'll start up here, and watch just rolls off or beads up to, so it's as easy as doing this, just to get rid of it, it'll dry out in the sun, pretty easily. Look it up towards the top. You can see the white portion, that's gonna be the olefin cover. So that part is a little more heavy duty because that's where the sun mostly beats down is on the top of your rig. So you need that extra protection up there. So that's not gonna be as breathable up top, but it's gonna be able to withstand that constant sun ray and UV rays. Now nice thing to talk about with this cover is the zippers here. So you got one on this side, you get the hook and loop on done, go up here, and then there's another one over here. And that's nice because you have this big area to uncover because you never know where the door is gonna be, every rig is a little bit different. But it gives you plenty of room to get in there, and if you under the straps on the bottom too. We're gonna get this flap up and actually get door access. So if you do get this all ready for the winter and cover it up, it's not permanent like that, you have to take the whole cover off just to get back inside. But the roll up there is actually a hook and loop straps here on the bottom, so you can attach it. You can see there's three of them. They keep the flat up and out of the way for the most part to give you door access. Coming back just a little bit further, let's say your door is maybe not up there, maybe it's back here. There's also a portion here you can unzip. Once you do the hook and loop, you get a whole other section uncovered. So with that done, we'll set this up. Then we'll undo the clips at the bottom, just like we did over there. And now you can get through this side too, if need be. It does come with a carrying bag, so when you do take it off of your travel trailer, you can roll it up and fit it back in here so it's nice and neat in storage. The first thing we're gonna do, we pull the cover out of the box. And what they tell you to do in the instructions is flip it inside out like we have it here, and we don't see any of the white top anymore. It's inside out, and we have the front tag right here, is what's you're gonna allocate on the inside. It will be really easy to depict, logo says this front, here you go. Its kind of upside down, but big yellow sticker says front, you got a smaller tag here that also says front. So this is what we're gonna leave sticking out, because what I'm gonna do is roll this up from back to front so that I can carry up the ladder and set it on the roof better. So we're just gonna go back there and start rolling it up. I'm just folding in a little bit. So it's a little smaller, more manageable to carry up there on the ladder with me, and then loosely roll it up, nothing crazy. We've got the cover rolled up. We can still see the front tag right here. So I'm gonna need that when I'm climbing up the ladder. Now I also got our gutter protectors, and we wanna do that before we get up there with that cover. Can you see, it's kind of aggressive the way the spouts come out and protrude from our rig. So we're gonna put these on the end of it and sent them up just so that nothing gets on there. We're dragging that cover across. Up here at the gutter, we're gonna see this foam here. It's got this opening at the end. Just can put that over a gutter spout, just like that. And then I'll pull the strings, the draw strings to make it nice and tight around there. Now that's covered up. We're gonna go to all the corners of our rig and cover the rest of them up. Now we've got our prep work out of the way, the cover is ready to go. We're gonna do a time-lapse 'cause this is the first time I'm putting this cover on, so I'm gonna run into some mistakes probably, but I will point out what I ran into so that you don't have to worry about them. So just gonna go ahead and start doing that. We'll see how it goes. That honestly didn't take all that long. I just carried it up the ladder, like they said, kind of laid it on the roof. Now I was extra careful 'cause this isn't my rig, so as I was spreading it out on the roof, I realized I was covering up the roof. So I was just being careful. You saw me go from standing to crawling around because as I put the cover over like our AC unit and a satellite dish here at the end, they're sticking up. I just wanted to be sure I didn't go stomping on anything when I was walking back on the roof, so that's why I was careful. Crawl around and felt around, just making sure I didn't sign up or break any accessories, but slowly brought the cover out there. Now it doesn't hurt to have another ladder here down on the outside because you can only get so far over the corners. I was able to drape most of it over the sides, the front where it kinda got caught up a little bit, so we had to get the ladder and go on that side, but that's okay, 'cause you can just climb back down, use the ladder right here instead that maybe it's a little more comfortable for you so you can just pull that cover down, and you're not actually on the cover while you're trying to do that. So just wanna show you one thing I ran into is, this omni probe up here was sticking up. Just be careful when you're pulling it, you don't wanna get it snagged, the cover wasn't coming over that. So things like this might be a little bit of issue, but not too bad. I just made sure I pulled on the bulk of the cover and it just kind of slowly pulled it over top. Didn't wanna aggressively pull 'cause he might break something, but that just gets it up and over this corner and we can just drape it down and it's much more manageable, then you can go on the ground and kind of straighten things out. While I'm up here, another thing I wanna point out is how helpful these pads are for the gutter. So pulling over there like that, you can kind of hear the fabric or I could as a drags on there and you can see you coming to a point, probably pulled down on there. That's not good that could have issues with the cover. So it was far easier to have this foam covering it because then you just go like this. I'm not worried about it falling over there. You got this nice rounded foam area, it's not just coming to a point that's eventually gonna wear through. Next step we're gonna do is we clip in our corners here. I've already done it on the other side of our rig. They're just gonna clip in these buckles, then you grab the ends of these straps and tighten it up towards your rig. Get it nice and tight that way it clings to it a little bit on each corner. And then we'll go to the next step. Now there's also the corner straps here at the top. So just go ahead and pull those tight as well. And then we can come down to our side flaps and start tighten those down too. Now we're gonna come back and use these straps across the backside, make sure that it's all flat and not twisted. Let's clip it in there. We'll pull it nice and tight along the back. You can see that it takes up a lot of the slack already. So we've got one on top. We've got one down here, do the same thing. Sorry, I got to twist it just a little bit so I can fix that real quick. There we go. Yes, I got a lot of slack. So we do that at the front too. Now we come up to the front and do the same thing up here. Buckle our buckles and pull up that slack. Now we're gonna go underneath and start with the belly straps. And down here on the bottom for the belly straps, we have this weighted connection to ADCO included with the cover, it's pretty helpful. You just clip it in to the buckle and it's gonna help you throw it to the other side 'cause it gives it some weight, that way you don't have to crawl underneath. So just put that up, throw it over and make your connections on the other side. So I included two, so you can do two at a time. If you have a second set of hands, you have a front on the other side, you can throw it over to them. They can make the connections and throw them back. Back on this side, let's disconnect our weights. Pull our strap, just like we did on the front back, make sure it's nice and straight and not twisted. And we'll just plug it in, pull the slack. Repeat that process on the remaining straps here at the bottom of our rig. Now there really is left to do is tie up our loose ends here on all our straps. When I started the research today on doing this cover, I've done a few covers before on pop-up campers, but not so much on a big rig like this. So, throwing this on there, I got a better perspective of what I wanted because the whole time it's like, well, what's the big deal about a cover Like you can throw a tarp on there, forget about it for the winter and be fine. But the more I looked at it, I remembered all the other boats I've worked on too that also use tarps and how nasty they are on the inside sometimes, the stuff builds up, there's mildew or does moisture in there, then the breathability of the cover became more clear that, yeah, people definitely want that, you definitely wanted it to be able to breathe, and let that stuff out. So it doesn't get gross on the inside. That's why the breathability here on the sides and the vents are very important. And then another thing I compared to, you know, getting in travel trailers here or even boats, is when those covers are really pulled nice and tight, it's hard to get those off there just to throw one more thing in the boat before you cover it up or your travel trailer to put that cover back on there. I like this, this has that side zipper to do that flap up there, that we can get in there. If you forgot to throw something in there and it's not a whole pain, you don't have to take a whole cover off and put it back on. And of course, the ease of tighten it up with these, all these straps that we're included, even the weights to throw in underneath and the protection up top, where it gets the UV, where he's the most, I want that protection up there to make sure it keeps my rig looking nice when I pull the cover off. Well, I think that about does it. Thanks for hanging out. I hope this helps..
