I purchased this to replace another brand that failed its' first winter. This one survived the snow and ice without cracking. So far no fading due to the extreme UV in the mountains as well. Time will tell if I can get more than a couple of years out of this, but so far it looks like I should. I like how this one almost covers the entire legs. It sits about 2 inches from the ground. My old one was much shorter. The straps are still holding up and hold all four corners down when it gets windy. I would have no problem recommending this cover.
