I need to cover my new Northern Lite 10 2 EXCD and found the cover below. Are you familiar with it or have a better suggestion?

Not familiar with it.  But the Amazon reviews seem about on par with the Adco cover.

I've used the Adco and will probably stick with it unless I can get a really good deal on it.

I have the larger version for my 11'6" Lance. It has lasted two winters and might make a third. Trouble is, any part that sticks out, like the rear jacks, rub and rub in any wind and wear thru the fabric. I've become quite accomplished at placing thin foam packing material strategically to try to prevent this. When It does  wear thru, I have found that Gorilla Tape (I prefer white) can last a season as well. I also use extra rope to tie around the cabover as close to the rear as possible and around the waist line at about the top of the jacks. If there is a possibility that a rope will rub, I reinforce strategically with Gorilla tape.

 

I also cover all the plastic vents with soft fabric or rugs tied in place to prevent rubbing and I put a piece of carpet on the folded down Sat dish. Radio antenna comes off as well. 

 

Wind is the ENEMY.
