New Calmark cover for the Windjammer

The Calmark cover is on it way to live on our Windjammer over the winter. The TT will be living at the resort, it has lots of trees around it.

Any advise on covering the rain gutters with Tennis balls? what else should you cover so this 1K cover does not rip or tear?

I have the Calmark for our Windjammer and used it last winter. Love it. It is heavy so I set it on top of the TT via a step ladder and then climbed on top using the TT ladder at the rear of the trailer. Don't forget to fold down your radio antenna before rolling out the cover. I put tennis balls on the down spouts and on the end of the cord that hooks to the tow vehicle. I also drilled holes in the battery box so it would drain in case anything got inside it. Battery was on a tender through the winter. A small bucket over the top of the electric tongue jack as well.

Thanks man,
How did you go about getting the tennis balls to stick to the down spouts? I was think you cut a small slit in the ball and then slide it over the plastic spout? Will they stay on while your putting the cover on?
Did you cover the TV antenna? seems it would cause problems when your pulling the cover over it...

TV antenna folded down did not offer an obstruction. When I got my cover they way they had it folded I started at the front and rolled it out toward the back. Then I threw the sides over the edge and the wife would pull it out away from the trailer until the full length was down. This cleared the tennis balls (with a small slit like you said) and they stayed on. Once the entire trailer was drapped in the cover and you make sure your door entry is lined up--pull that drawstring as tight as you can to cut down on wind flap. Any of your roof obstructions--vents, A/C, etc.--just carefully work the cover over them and you should be fine.

I will be curious to see how it goes this year since I had to fold the cover up this past spring. Hopefully it is in format to go right on again this winter.

What measurements did you use for them to make the cover. Would you change anything on the size you ordered on the 3008w

Make an inquiry with them on their website and they will send you a sample kit of material and strapping material used. It will have a little diagram for critical dimensions that they need and then I included a top view drawing I made up concerning the v-nose portion of the trailer. Not sure where I put my copy but I wouldn't change any of the dimensions I submitted. It fits very well and the draw string at the bottom will help cinch it tight and pulls the cover under the trailer a little bit.

Did Calmer make a "V" front design for the Windjammer?

Do you mean CalMark? That is the cover I bought. It was custom made for my Windjammer (at the time). I no longer have my v-nose but the cover was given to a fellow Jammer owner who had the same model trailer.
