Scamp 13 cover?

Does anyone know if there are any covers for a Scamp 13 that are better than that thin, baggy looking ebay cover for $130? At that price I would rather just get a portable garage from harbor freight.

I have both and I think the portable garage is the better deal if you have space for it. I have a good cover so it is tight and well fitted, but not easy to get on. And the trailer must be clean or the cover will scratch it. But the portable garage turns into a "portable parachute " if it gets windy and it is not weighted or held down properly, resulting in possible damage to the trailer. In Calif sun the portable garage cover , or tarp replacement may only last 2-3 years. David in HOT Fresno and warm Sonora

Ditto to what DavidG wrote. I tie the peak of the portable garage to the trailer hitch and bumper, fore and aft, to overcome the "portable parachute" problem. That withstood a wind storm the actually blew several shingles off the roof of the garage next to the trailer.
