Which cover would you buy?

Hi all.
I've got a 2013 27HFS XLR toy hauler with the extreme weather package and am researching the ADCO Designer covers. The 27HFS is technically a 30' trailer, but I believe that is from ramp to tongue. I think the ramp to front of the trailer is a little over 27'. ADCO makes 2 covers that fit the toy hauler models in the length that I need. "24'-1" to 28'", and the "28'-1" to 30'". My question is basically which size should I get from my 27HFS? Is the smaller cover going to give me problems from being too snug, and on the other hand, will the larger one be way too loose? Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Steve

Thanks guys. I went ahead and ordered the 28-30 toy hauler version. If there's too much play I can always tie it off. I was a little concerned about the smaller one fitting too tight.
thanks again.

Another quick tip I picked up here is the tennis balls for the rain gutter extensions. A small slit into a cheap tennis ball and slide it over the rain gutter end before putting the cover on will help to prevent holes in your new cover over the winter I picked up a bag of tennis balls at Walmart. 4 for the camper and the rest went to the puppy

Some say pool noodles from the Dollar Store work just as well but are cheaper.

No problem what so ever. I have Max air vent covers too.

It would be nice to have a cover that just covered the roof and a couple feet down the sides... Perhaps with tie downs to hold. It would do the job of saving the roof and avoiding leaks... But be MUCH easier to install!

Anyone seen a cover like this?
