My trailer is a v-nose so I ordered a Calmark cover that is custom made to the trailer. Love it. Heavy--but love how it fit and having a nice clean trailer when winter was over.

I had one on my previous TT and it was great, however, you must make sure it fits good and tight. At my previous unit we had a pretty bad storm roll through with heavy winds and just a little slack in the cover ripped it to shreds. Otherwise, up till then it was a great cover.

My trailer has drain spouts sticking out 2" on the top of each corner. They are siliconed on. Does a cover accommodate them or will they act like pokers to the material when the cover is on?

I have the same gutter system on my TT. I cut a slit in tennis balls and stuck them on the end of each downspout. Cover drops over them no problem.

I did the same thing as Old Car and the tennis balls still pushed through our Adco tyvek cover halfway into winter. Didn't even last one season.

That's not good. I wonder why?

I also have an ADCO tyvek and use the tennis ball trick. Worked perfectly on my hybrid so maybe it's a function of the trailer design.

I can see this happening if my cover had been a tighter fit, though.
