I have read reports that these typically only last a season or two and may abrade the fiberglass.

Do you use one of these yourself, Floyd?

This cover is on season 5 and still going strong. I think it's one of the Elite ones. No abrasion that I've noticed.

I have one and it appears to be of decent quality and certainly a nice price. The side material is heavier than Tyvek and not as shiny and medium gray in color. It is perforated like upholstery fabric for breathability. It has a nice quality zipper for the door. It is Made in USA and is custom made to fit our trailers.
The ad says...
  • Thick, triple-ply waterproof fabric top keeps out rain and snow while venting inside water vapor and condensation
  • Excellent for indoor and outdoor use especially in high moisture climates area
  • Fabric UV Treated for heat and sun protection and Breathable to avoid mildew and mold
  • Cover protects against rain, snow, UV rays, dirt, nicks and scratches
  • Double Stitched Seams Durability
  • Zippered side panel allows access to the camper door
  • Soft, Abrasion-Resistant polypropylene fabric side panels
  • Elastic hems and grommets with reinforced corners with straps and buckles for a snug fit and security
  • Free Storage Pouch Included
  • Two year warranty


Of course the weather conditions and storage location of the trailer would affect the longevity and the installation would affect how much it moves around.
My trailer is stored in a climate controlled shop and as lazy as I am, my cover will likely last for decades folded nicely in the original box it came in!
I do automotive work and welding in my shop and I bought it to protect my trailer from overspray and grinding dust, but I haven't used it yet.

The first post in this thread is typical of a number of reviews I've read. The unspecified "eBay seller" is certainly the same Elite company, as I have done several searches over the years, and this is the only Scamp cover that has ever turned up in the "budget" category. A site search on "Scamp cover" turns up many other threads on the subject and occasional mentions of the Elite cover.

Negative comments do tend to get more space on the internet. I would be curious if others besides Phillip have had a good experience with this product for outdoor storage.
