Cover

I wanted to purchase an Adco cover for my 26BH.
Can anyone recommend to go either with model
42243 size 24'1" - 26'
Or model
42244 size 26'1" - 28'6"

Thank you

Chompersoni- I just purchased a Adco cover for my Jayco. Don't rely on the manufacturer's measurements. You will want to include the length of your trailer including the rear bumper and spare tire. Do not include in your measurement the propane tanks. My trailer measured out to be 25'10" and the 24.1-26 fit perfectly. If in doubt call the manufacturer before purchasing. Hope this helps you out.

Why cover? Mine stays out in the elements, but I regularly wash the roof and wax the TT. After 2 years it is still in great shape. Not only do not want the hassle of a cover, I don't want to walk on my roof every time it needs to come off or go on.

I never thought of the walking on the roof aspect of it.
I should maybe wax it for the winter and leave it out.
I live in Wet Coast in Canada and concerned that we will have a lot of rain over the winter season.

Fellow west coaster I cover mine. I measured it and directions said if trailer is 6" within max dimension get larger size. I did this and it is kind of big. I think the one that measured out the same would have been better. I believe the more water you can keep off the trailers the better.

I dont know. It rains all the time throughout the season I use it. Rains plenty of times while actually camping. If I decided on a cover it would be to keep snow and ice off the roof. But I still dont think I want the hassle of covering a 33 foot camper for less than 5 months. I covered cars in the past and found that a hassle. lol. Then to store a giant cover someplace that it wont get moldy the rest of the time or bug/mice infested ? I guess its not for me.
