I have a $100 tarp you can have. We are getting 120km gusts right now. It is to many pieces to count.

I am trying to find those pool noodles for swimming to cut up to cap the sharp edges before I cover it to prevent it from ripping the fabric.
Ok so a tarp is out of thequestion. Are those Adco cover any good? Do I realy need to cover the trailer? I realize they are made to be outside in all kinds of weather but would it help in the long to have it covered?

As for noodles ( Toys r us ) or ( walmart )

Again thanks for all the tips.

I keep mine covered with an Adco cover and will continue to do so until the day comes that I can put it in covered storage of some kind. I'm not so much concerned about the rain, but the Texas sun can be pretty harsh in the summer, and I want my trailer to stay looking new as long as possible.

Al from Al's RV repair recommended the ADCO cover. It has zippers so that you can still access the TT. The one that I have is the one that they recommended for our climate and it is light weight so it supposed to be easy to install. I haven't installed it yet, I would prefer to wash the trailer and dry it before I put it on.

On the windstorm.....it was pretty wicked.....had power outage in our area so the wife and my daughter used the trailer...lol

Thanks for the tip on those noodles!!

Thanks again.
Do you work for Heli-jet?

No but they are one of my customers.

Their hanger is always full of Helicopters. No room for trailers. lol

How do you like your Adco cover? pros vs cons?

I am only on my first season with mine but trailer is still nice and clean. I just slipped foam pipe insulation over my gutter spouts. I like how easy the cover was to put on. So far it is good and I think better than a tarp.

Well, I got it on my TT. I had go on the roof in order to install it and I got help from my BIL. I could have done it myself....but much easier with a second set of hands. It has straps that goes underneath and keeps the sides from billowing out. The zippered section can be rolled up and velcrod at the top so you can have access to the inside. overall...it fits pretty well
