    This one seems good and I believe has been well reviewed here in the past

    Bought this one about 8 months ago. It fits our 320S BD well and has stood up to the summer sun in Texas. 
    Check this out on Amazon

    @CanadianTabber, we have the cover from PahaQue. Beginning it's sixth winter. Looks and protects like new. Pricey but very worth it for us in our climate.

    Seems like everyone has a different experience with covers.  I've heard good and bad comments on all of them.  Like you, @CanadianTabber, I'm shopping.

    I bought a 2018 T@B from the original owner in September 2020, they included a Pahaque cover.  The cover had mildew stains and a powdery residue (which others have reported here in the forum -- seems to indicate degradation of the cover).  This summer I went to take the cover off and it ripped in my hands.  So this cover lasted, at most, 3 years in western Washington.  The Pahaque (for 320 Boondock) currently sells for $469 on their website https://pahaque.com/collections/trailer-covers

    The Allpro cover sounds good, but on their website they say it can scratch the windows   From their website: "Notice: This top-quality material does not tear and can scuff camper windows if not protected. To avoid this, cover your windows with soft linen. Some people use flat sheets or pillowcases. We are not responsible for damaged windows."   I usually leave my windows in the vented position, so need to see if I can make a cover that would stay put if I go this route.  The Allpro cover for 320 Boondock is currently $529 on their website  https://allproadventures.com/collections/t-b-accessories/products/new-cover-for-t-b?variant=21774094368852

    The Classic Accessories cover, sold through Amazon is $229 (but does not cover the front storage bin on a Boondock).  I've read comments from people who have had this cover last one year or several.  I am tempted to go this route, because this cover has a vent on either side, and condensation is something I deal with here in the Pacific Northwest.  But I'm not sure if this will fit over the Yakima rack and basket on my Boondock, the photos on Amazon look like a fairly snug fit.  The Amazon description says it has a 3-year warranty, but I don't know the details on that.  Classic Accessories has their own website  https://classicaccessories.com/covers/rv-trailer?product_style=6058 , but all of the covers appear to be out of stock, so may have to go through Amazon if I try this one.

    Good luck!

    I bought a PahaQue and it looks heavy duty uses 600D material which is good, flat rate shipping from California to Canada $ 25.00 and it is cheaper than an Allpro , expect to pay duties and taxes of $ 95.00 canadian on arrival. I also bought a Classic Accessories cover from Amazon that I use in the summer, it is a lot lighter weight and easier to put on between trips, no where near the quality, if you have the money go with the PahaQue

    I heard some comments both ways that covers can and will not scratch the windows, if the cover is secured tightly it shouldn't flap in the wind and scratch the windows. Since this is my first winter, I took food plastic wrap and wrapped the windows just in case. I will know more in the spring

    I haven't had a problem with the Pahaque scratching the windows.  But the Allpro website made a specific mention, I think they use a different material.

    I have one of the Classic Accessories covers I bought off Amazon last year for $115, to use with my used 2006 TAB. This year I upgraded to a 2021 320S, and I reused the old cover. It fits perfectly, but now that we are in the rainy season here in Portland, OR, I can see that it is *not* waterproof.

    Now I'm trying to decide between the PahaQue and the AllPro...

    I don’t think you want waterproof.  I think you want the material durable enough to withstand the elements, keep off debris and to breathe to prevent mildew.

    After our PahaQue disintegrated after 4 years we went with the Classic.   That lasted about 1.5 years and the top really fell apart.  BUT, they have a 3 year warranty and the company is very good about honoring it.  Make sure you keep your receipt for the warranty!  We also took pictures of the label on the cover itself.   The company just asked for a copy of the receipt AND pictures of the bad condition of the cover.   They did not require us to return the cover.   We will buy another Classic when the current one falls apart.

    Mine came with the sale (Pahaque) but I can't get the dang thing on. Any tips for a single lady who is 5'6"? Besides growing a foot

    I'm 6'1" with a Tab 400 and the Allpro cover. I need a small step ladder (3steps) to put it on by myself. There is a video somewhere that shows a guy who put it on by himself with a ladder. I used that. It involves pre folding it inside out into a square and placing it in the middle of the roof. Then it just unfolds. Pretty slick and worked like a charm for me.

    June of 2024 and the choices seem to be pretty much the same. What have the winters of 2021, 2022, and 2023 shown you?
    At the high end, it sounds like the PahaQue has a tendency to deteriorate, and/or produce a powdery residue. Has the residue been problematic? Does it indicate a pending failure?
    Are the inexpensive ones (Classic?) a get-what-you-pay-for experience?
    The only downside to the AllPro that was mentioned was window scratching, and this seems to be something you simply make an effort to prevent. Any updates from actual use?

    New question, that perhaps belongs elsewhere: Do you also cover your wheels with separate covers under the PahaQue or AllPro body covers?

    I have used the All Pro for 3 winters and there is little wear I can see...did not cover the wheels but a good idea!
    I would buy this cover again.

    PS, before I put the cover on, I use Saran wrap on the windows to prevent scratches.
