Has anyone purchased a cover for their 295bhss? I purchased an adco cover for it and finally got it put on this weekend. I am not to happy with the overall fit because the sides are cut for the taller sided fifth wheels. I messed with it for a couple of hours and got it somewhat situated on there. For the money I have invested, I am going with 'better than sitting out in the open' but I am hoping it doesn't cause any damage with as loose as it is. Hopefully by winter next year I can find building to store it in.

Just got me wondering if anyone else had any luck with a different cover.

I did the same as you and had the same issues. I think the only way around it would be to have a custom cover built.

Thanks for the reply. My cover got good test last night with the storms that came through but it seemed to do ok. I was looking at custom covers but when I see the cost associated with them, I am leaning more towards spending a little more to build a carport for it.

Oh yeah, the custom covers are SPENDY. We keep our trailer at a storage lot, so the car port is not an option. We only cover it when we are not using it for extended times, so I could not justify the added expense of the custom cover. So far the one I have is ok, but if I can find some reasonably priced covered storage I expect we will eventually go that route.

Well, after spending 2 hours getting the new cover on the trailer last weekend and secured to not cause damage to the camper or cover, three trips back to the storage lot to check/adjust the cover from the wind and storms. I got a call from the storage location that I was on the waiting list for covered storage yesterday. I can now put the camper in a 40' foot slot under a roof instead of sitting outside!!! Woohoo!!! Costs me $780 a year but I don't have to worry about it sitting outside taking the weather abuse anymore. Tomorrow I get to find out how hard it is to take the cover off and move it to its new location.
