Two years ago we bought a Classic Accessories trailer cover for our 1978 Trillium
4500, so that it could be somewhat protected through our Alberta winters.
First spring we found that the Tyvek top fabric and some of the front fabric was ripped pretty badly due to it being slightly oversized for our trailer and strong winds blowing it around like a flag. My wife the seamstress cut out the ripped parts and sewed it back together so that it was a better fit for our trailer.
Went out this last weekend to get the trailer for the upcoming season and found that that now there is a HUGE rip almost the entire length of the trailer through the Tyvek top fabric, approximately where the aluminum awning
I have pictures, but unfortunately can't get them loaded into this message.
The Tyvek fabric is delaminating and turning to powder, leaving white dust everywhere!
We paid too much money for this thing to just throw it in the garbage after 2 years, and we still want to keep the trailer covered somehow. The side fabric is still in OK shape - it's just the Tyvek top fabric that is falling apart.
Has anyone else had this kind of problem with their Classic Accessories or other trailer covers? If so, what did you do to solve this?
My wife would like to try to repair the damaged piece, but what fabric would you recommend to do so, without spending $30 a meter (yard for you Americans out there) for Sunbrella?
Thanks for your help!
