covering your egg

Here is an eBay site that seems to be pretty good. Over 4100 sales on covers for many different campers. Single and triple layer. Although I have an UHaul, they have a triple layer cover for the 13' Scamp that should fit. Zippered door, elastic edges and tie downs. I ordered mine yesterday and hope to have it at the first of the week. Their eBay name is Elitemotoronline. Put in #310255686143 (the one I ordered) and it will take you to their store site.

I was impressed with the super quick delivery. Ordered on Tuesday, received on Friday. Cover was packed well. Appeared to be hand folded and came with a storage bag. Tie down eyelets appear to be strong. Stitching looked real good. Comes with a lock and cable to help secure the cover in place. Nice breathable fabric with 3 layers on the top. This one slightly smaller than 13', but covers my 13CT UHaul quite well. Double zipper door makes it easy to get into the trailer. If it holds up as well as its first impression gives, I think it will be worth the $150.

I just purchased this same one based on your review for my Uhaul CT13, thanks.

I hope that yours will work as well as mine does. Not a top of the line cover, but I believe worth its value. I really like it. Much, much better than the blue plastic tarp that I had been using.

We covered our Boler for the past three winters here in the Great White North with a summer screen house that had poles to keep the material off the trailer. It worked very well, although it damaged the grass in our back yard and I had to sometimes brush off the snow.

However, for the new trailer (1980 Trillium) we are going to leave it exposed over the winter. The Trillium manual (in the Document Center) says that “nothing needs to be done to the exterior for winter storage. If left outside, do not cover the Trillium with any kind of plastic sheet, as the sun’s ultra violet rays might cause the colour to fade.” Since they were made in Ontario, where it is not quite as cold but much more snow than Alberta, I figure that perhaps they knew something that I do not. We shall see.

Has anybody considered shrink wrapping their trailer like they do boats for the winter?
Pros?
Cons?
Costs?

Well, I take it back. After about three weeks of watching the Trillium get covered by falling leaves, passing birds and general frozen grime, I decided that this would not make me happy. Fortunately, this past weekend we got an unexpected reprieve from the cold weather, at least it went a couple of degrees above freezing for a few hours each day. So, I got out my 10 by 10 foot screen house we have used for the past three years on the Boler,, and changed the frame so that it was now 12 by 8 and a foot taller (the Trillium is longer and has more square corners than the Boler, requiring a higher frame at the sides to go over it). Then with time getting short on Sunday, I dragged over the screen house fabric and put up side walls and another screen house fabric that we had lying around to cover up the front part where it was longer than the original. It is not pretty, but it will work for this winter. Then next spring I will figure out a better cover for it, perhaps starting with a 12 by 8 tarp that will match the reconfigured frame. I thought of getting a temporary garage, which they had on sale for $150 at Canadian Tire. But when I got there, the thing was so heavy it took two people to lift it, and I decided that it was not for me. My wife is not crazy about the sloppy look in our back yard, and I may figure out a better top if the weather holds this weekend, we will see.

Does anyone know the height of the elitemotoronline cover. I have an aftermarket AC unit on my 13' Uhaul and I'm worried the extra height may not help the cover fit. In the above photos it looks like there may be a bit of slack if my AC is a bit larger than the original cooler.

I have that cover and it will fit, I have a fan cover that is at least as high as a roof AC if not higher and the cover fits fine. Refer to the picture I posted above.
