that is sure the truth. I put a small canopy up one day to work on the trailer out of the sun. I didn't put it over the trailer just snug up to it. next morning it was down the way. and just rolled itself over a few times. just the way it is around here. :wak if I had staked it, it's would have been on the ground in a clump. Learned that lesson already. this way it just needed turned over and put back.

We tarped the RV for the winters we could not find indoor parking. Made sure we had moisture control gadgets. And for odor control and to keep the little creatures away, we put fabric softner sheets in the closets, fridge (open of course) and in every nook and cranny. It works. The Trillium fits in our hangar and that is where it will "live" in the winter. If wse turn it so the tongue faces the side wall, the door will be accessible and we will be able to enjoy it and dream of being on the road. The is sufficient room to tail or nose the plane in and sit in the egg to eat, snooze or just dream.
I've included a picture of where she sits now, in the hangar, while we are tearing it apart and sprucing her up. It is facing the bifold door while we work on it and have to tail it in to fit. That is tougher when the plane is on skis and why we are thinking of facing it to the wall. The paint will last longer and it will already be in a dry place if we want to add a mod... Gives a hole new meaning to "camping under wing"... JD<img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3edccf885c08cUnder wing.jpg/>

Trailer cover

Hi,
I use a tarp garage for my Bigfoot 17. It's manufactured by Inland Plastics of Drumheller, Alberta. It cost about CDN$1200. We have severe weather in Alberta and I just couldn't bear to have the trailer sit out all the time. It's not only snow and wind you have to worry about. there is also UV radiation from the sun, pitch from trees and industrial/urban fallout. My tarp garage is 24' long, 14' wide and about 11' tall at the tiop of the peak. If I park the trailer right in the middle, I can walk around it, and enter it while it's inside. My neighbours are good about putting up with my 'Grey Elephant ' in the back yard. I say that with the high cost of these RV's, I have a right and an obligation to protect it's value to the best of my ability.
-Ron.

I use a Cover-It

I've been using 3 Cover-It's for the last 5 years for some of my cars and I just set one up for my car trailer.

The Casita has been kept in a garage most of its life.

Check out http://www.cover-it.com
