With a fiver we don't have that luxury. The excess remains in the back.

First time did it by myself and a step ladder!! Put the cover on top of the roof, climb up and unfold and drop down on all 4 corners!! Took about 30 min to install.. There is a really good video on line of how to install the cover and worked great for me. Checked on it last night after a week of being on and is really helping to keep the trailer nice and clean. Going to be using it all year round.

Wifey and I put the cover on. I tie a rope around the rear of the cover and toss it onto the front of the roof. I pull the cover up with Wifey helping from down below. I drag it rearward across the roof and unfold each side, climb down the ladder dragging it with me. It takes about 15 mins to do. All that is left is to cinch down the sides.

How should you measure for a cover? Whole trailer from from front of hitch to rear bumper or just the camper itself?

Go onto the ADCO website. They give instruction for proper measurement.

Measure RV from end to end (including bumpers, spare tire and ladder) to determine RV Cover needed for proper fit. Do not rely on manufacturer’s specifications. Covers should fit loose.
