Does anyone know of a company that makes a good/high quality soft trailer cover for a 13ft. Trillium??

This cover looks good. I'm wondering if it will fit a 13' scamp with an awning? Anyone tried one?

Thanks Alistair, I think I'll look into this one first. Donna the site you posted about sounds very do-able as well, although I'd hope to get one that was 'more' waterproof/resistant!! I'll need to find something before next fall as the Trillium will be now stored outdoors 24/7 (because of our move), unless I can impose upon my Hot-Rod neighbour here to keep storing the trailer beside his Trillium in his heated garage. IF I do store it there, it will mean a 10 mile drive each way to pivk it up and deliver it back when we are done using it. (NOT very convenient)

Doug,

I purchased a cover for my 13' Uhaul at the website in Donna's post. I've had it I think 2 years now & have absolutely no complaints about it. I like the zippered door-plus I can install it on the camper by myself. I don't have a garage to store my camper & I check the trailer occasionally & have never seen it wet inside.

HHHmmmm, Thanks for that heads up Patty! Worth while looking into as many possibilities as I can. Re-storing time NOW seems soooo far down the road. most all blossoms here are opening. Now, if only I could get this wet stuff to quit falling from the sky for a week or two, I could get ready for our upcoming May meet!!

Donna,

Do you know anyone who has used the horse trailer cover? We are going to order one this week. 14' to 16'. We like the door in it.

Oops, just saw Patty's post. Thank you Patty.

We have a cover that fits great and has the door. We ordered it in 2002.
We ordered it from California Car Cover 1-800-423-5525.

Ours has the zippered door, the extra material to go over our awning ($20), and fits our 17' Liberty with our roof air conditioner. We love the door.

We now have a carport over the Casita so we don't use the cover as much but it's really a good cover.

Hi,
I'm the chap that makes these covers for the Boler 1300, Trillum 1300 and 4500.
The Scamp is almost identical to our Boler 1300 and the cover fits on it with a 7 foot Trimline bag awning. The covers are made just large enough to accomodate most additions and alteration to Bolers or Trilliums.
Here are the links with all the info on our covers.

Mike,
We are in the process of buying a 2007 Scamp 16'. It has an a/c unit and an awning. Would any of your covers fit that?
Thanks.
Fran
