Yeah brokerage can get expensive. I am not sure why Canadians get dinged with brokerage and customs/duty. In the old days the brokerage fee used cover any customs or duty charges not now, and it is not just CW.
The reason there is customs/duty on a great number of items is because they are not manufactured in the US or Mexico. If they were the the Free Trade act would kick in and no duty.
I ordered my cover on Tuesday, it arrived Friday, and i put it in on today. It was very easy. I also used tennis balls on the down spouts. In addition I layed a thin doormat on top of the satellite antenna just to protect the cover from any sharp edges. I do like the patches they ship with it just in case.
Here's a picture of the 3 adhesive backed patches that came with my cover. They are 6x12" and each a different color. My cover also came with a ladder cover which I'll never use but could use as a patch someday. I would call the manufacturer, maybe they would send you some patches.
That cover fits beautifully! The one on the Beast is a bit large and I have to bunch it up in the rear when I cinch it up.

If you measure from the spare tire to the front of the Roo (not including the battery box & propane tanks), you should be right around 22'. You can skip covering the spare tire and bumper if you need a little more length out of the cover.
We got the 22-24 for our 2014 233S. It fits a lil big but haven't fully adjusted it yet. When I measured beyond the spare it was almost 23 so didn't want to take the chance of being too small. Goes on fairly easy. Simply unscrew the audio antenna and lay it flat then re-screw it (as someone here indicated).
Need to play with it this week as we got the winterization done yesterday...first time we have had to do that as the pup was always ibn the garage.
