The email quote from CalMark's lists:

"Casita / Scamp 13 $513.00
Casita / Scamp 16 $553.00
Casita / Scamp 17 [sic] $560.00

Scamp 19 Fifth Wheel $730.00."

Shipping is additional with approximately 4-5 weeks from order to delivery. No doubt they're worth every penny to protect the investment. We had a Sunbrella material cover made for a canoe just after we moved to Arizona six years ago. Neither the canoe nor the cover have been impacted by the brutal AZ rays.

Well, to close the loop on this at least for me ... just got off the phone from placing my order with Stan at CalMark Covers. Within moments I felt like I was speaking with a friend. He makes "tons" of Scamp and Casita covers, has more than 20 in various stages of order completion now, yet told me I'd have mine in two weeks. It's obvious he understands the need for UV protection for fiberglass in the southwest. He sings the praises of Sunbrella fabric, yet in this case was singing those praises to another member of the choir.

The $513 + shipping is an investment to care for another investment - our 13' Scamp. Should we ever decide to sell the Scamp, the cover can be part of the package. I had been reluctant to take the plunge, but I felt very good after hanging up.

I "bit the bullet" three years ago and ordered a CalMark cover for my 16' Scamp.
A worthy investment. In S. GA, there's plenty of hot sun and moisture most of the year. The CalMark cover truly is an asset to protect a bigger asset.

scamp-13 covers

hello group,
i've read the previous posts on cover experiences. i also did a little web surfing. what i'm getting is that there seem to be two apparent choices;
1 - the ebay or equivalent that is under $200 but has a short life
2 - calmark that makes a good cover for over $500 and has a 6 year warranty.

since i am in need of a cover, i was wondering if anyone has identified a 3rd or 4th choice?

i just bought this scamp and it seems to have some areas that leak (tbd) so i am hesitant to just wait it out until spring uncovered.

thanks for any replies.

After reading many posts about cover options, I am determined to go talk to my husband about protecting our investment. In Utah, we are lucky enough to get loads of sun PLUS a lot of winters weather to include snow and freezing temps. If we were going to sell her within the next five years, I might think Calmark is too expensive for us but we are finishing up some projects that I think will make it hard to part with her ever! I guess I will just work a bit of OT to pay for our Christmas gift to each other this year!

My concern isn't UV, it's snow load. I was gonna buy a steel carport to park our ParkLiner under, but the zoning people in our town are truly off their rocker, so I said heck with that, let's get a cover. I'm gonna call these Calmark folks, but I don't think Sunbrella is what we need.

When we get a cover, I'll probably just push the snow off of her with a push broom. I do that already even though a car port would be nice!

I ordered the $130 eBay cover about 3 weeks ago. It showed up within a few days, but it's been raining/snowing every day since then. I'll put the cover on as soon as it clears for a day or two. The eBay seller says it has a 10-year guarantee --- I'll let y'all know if they live up to their word (don't stay up late waitin')

My eBay cover lasted 2 years in Wisconsin. And that's even with it being stored inside a barn both winters out of the weather. The cover is completely disintegrating into powder each time we put it on and off.

For how cheap it was, 2 years is what I figured I'd get and we weren't sure about the scamp long term.

I'm now ordering a Calmark w/ sunbrella and I figure in my climate, I'll be good for another decade with it. I had sunbrella as a sail cover on a boat and it wore like iron.

I was about to inquire about a storage cover for the Scamp. Appreciated all your good notes, especially the Wisconsin reference where I will park our Scamp outdoors. Ordered a Calmark cover last night.

Good for you folks. I'm just waiting to hear back from Calmark as to whether the dimension sheet I sent yesterday morning and all the pics are going to be sufficient to get one made for our 2012 ParkLiner. It's almost noon here on the right coast, so hopefully they will be open soon and get back to me.

For $500 I'd look into buying one of those metal "parking" sheds. Then you can just park the trailer under it all year with no real hassle like installing the cover and tying it down.

For a 9' high 12' w, 16' long metal carport (which is the height I need to park the ParkLiner under, it's $1100 AFTER I get a permit, which will cost me more &, lots of time and a major hassle.
