I have a dowco guardian. Nice thing about it is that it has a lifetime guarantee. I've had mine replaced twice at no charge after using it daily for 2 to 3 years. The sun makes it brittle and it begins to tear. I've tried other covers, and with daily use all I ever get is 2 to 3 years out of them before it's time for replacement.

My Dowco Guardian developed a hem issue. The thread let go and the hem wasn't a hem any longer. I called customer service, got an RMA, and sent it back. I was told a new cover would be shipped when mine arrived. That was Oct. 12. I called yesterday to confirm receipt of my cover and that the new cover had been shipped. Dowco got my cover and the new one was to ship today. Funny that they took so long to turn it around. Customer service was very helpful. Shipping was a horse of another color.

I do like the cover, though. Once donned a few times, it goes on quickly. I can do it in 3 minutes, and I don't hurry.
