dual propane tank cover???

Are these pretty generic?
I have a jayco jayflight tt with dual propane tanks...is it safe to assume that propane tanks are generally spaced the same...do these covers have adjustment??

What do I need to know/measure before I go buy a dual propane tank cover

Here's just one you can check out: 30 lb Heavy Duty Propane Tank Cover - Polar White - Camco 40542 - Propane Bottle Covers - Camping World

The cover we had some wiggle room but also stayed snug against the tanks. The tanks themselves were somewhat moveable, position-wise also.

Was always curious of the "wiggle" on the tank covers. Only thing holding the cover down is a small bungee.

I am wanting to buy that same propane tank cover in the above link for my twin 30lb tanks. I walked into a local non-Jayco dealer yesterday to see if they had them... Well they did have ONE and it was listed at 68.95 plus tax! Unbelievable that these guys think they can get away with that kind of robbery. I told him straight up their prices are outrageous and walked out. Online ordering it is!

I have a soft propane cover, I had a hard one ( Do Not Like) to hard to get off. he soft ones have a zipper on he top.
I do see that the new hard one have a cover on the top so you can get to it, one for each side
When my friends decided to go with a motor home, I end up with a few things, that was one of them.

Two more weeks the cover come off the trailer.
Camping May long weekend taking a whole week off
Truck back on Road at the end of the Month.

I didn't even know they were supposed to have a bungee! Mine just sits on top of the tanks. Over the last year-and-a-half it has never moved while traveling except the one time I towed a short distance with only one tank on the rack (will never do that again).

The one thing that concerns me though is that it wiggles enough to wear the paint off the sides of the tanks. A couple spots were worn down to bare tank metal. Nothing a wire brush and a little spray primer and paint couldn't fix. But since you mentioned it, I wonder if putting a bungee down there would help with that?

Anyone else have that problem with their hard plastic covers?
