You could also tilt your trailer nose up or down using your front jack so that melting snow drains off and doesn't ice up as much. The slope effect also helps reduce snow accumulation and applied weight.

Hi: All...NOW this is a cover!!! We're lucky to have a family member with enough acreage to have a Cover-All building. We give him a years supply of red wine for the use of space. It's a good deal all around.

What kind of portable shelter?

For $138 so far I'm happy with the eBay elitemotors online 13' scamp cover. Here's a few pics of it. Comes with a storage bag also.

There's a couple of close ups on the fabric. The top roof portion is thicker than the sides (pic with th bigger dots is the roof). By the end of next summer I'll have a stronger opinion I'm sure. Fabric seems breathable to me.

I'm not in a windy area so I'm glad it has enough room to tuck around the entire rear bumper and cover the front propane tank.

Secured by 3 straps that connect by fastex buckles underneath. Easy to install using a couple of brooms - another great tip from this forum.

Just put one from Elite on my Lil Snoozy today. It is really for a Casita, but worked fine. They were very nice to deal with, the price is right and they shipped quicky. Recommend to anyone looking for a decent cover.

If it wasn't for the distance -"north shore of lake erie" vs Wisconsin, Mississippi River side, I'd consider increasing your family members yearly wine consumption...

John, is there a zipper for door access? What's the shorter flap looking thing near the top running horizontal all the way across?

The 6th picture shows the zippered door access. The zippered panel is pretty large - and there are stow straps for rolling it up.

The flaps on each side are for ventilation; there are mesh panels near the top underneath the flap shown in picture 2.

Cheap and reasonable so far, but I store the scamp inside a barn in the winter so it didn't really see harsh weather. I'll be using it mostly in season for UV sun protection and bird/tree dropping protection. Very easy to put on and off - it is slightly oversized and with a few brooms holding it up, we can walk it on and off in less than 5 minutes total.

brooms??

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, I see now how the door access works with the side rolled up, lol. I thought you had just lifted the entire side somehow to gain entry. Doh! Sorry

Brooms were a tip I picked up somewhere else here.

Pick 2 brooms - any style, your spouse gets on the other side of the trailer, you each stuff a broom up underneath the cover and simply hold them up as high as you can and walk the cover onto the trailer. POC as my wife would say ("piece of cake"). No ladder or any other wrestling needed.

We bought a van cover for our 13' Boler two summers ago , for about $120. We live in Phoenix. By this winter, it had completely disintergrated in the sun, literally falling apart like strands of straw. I'd love to hear any suggestions about managing the incredible sun here, short of building a carport...

travel sketches in the Boler at www/j-drawingaday.blogspot.com thanks..

We use the ebay Elitemotors cover too while the trailer is stored. For about 75 bucks it was well worth it. For the Escape 13 I ordered the one for the Trillium, which has the same body so it fits perfectly. Doesn't have a "door" but on the small trailer it's easy to push it up over the awning for easy access when I need to get into the trailer for something quick. The fabric is nice and soft. I figure it will at least slow down the degradation of the clear coat.
