Nice cover for FE257BHS

I just brought home my new 2021 Freedom Express 257BHS and bought a new cover from Amazon. This cover is a perfect fit, well made with lots of secure attachments. I installed it myself in about 1 hour.

I highly recommend this coverÖ a perfect fit for other 257BHS owners.

Thanks for sharing, we have a 2019 257BHS almost identical to yours. What size cover did you buy? I don't see one listed for a 25' trailer.

I purchased the 24í to 27í cover, it fits perfect as you can see from the pictures. I checked the link and realized they no longer list that size. I looked on the manufacturer site, they are sold out of that size too.

Iím sure they will list it once it comes available. Big demand for the winter season I guess.

Thanks for the info!

I'm sure you haven't had it long enough to tell, but how does it do in the wind? One major concern of mine is that the cover would flap excessively and cause rubbing or scratches to the painted surface underneath.

The cover has a soft smooth material on the underside. Iíve only had a slight rain so far. Read many reviews of others living in snowy/windy areas and gave the cover good reviews.

I have a similar cover and had it for 4 years. Mine fits loose and never had an issue with rubbing or scratching from the cover. I do put a good coat of wax on mine and clean it before I cover it.

I liked my ADCO Designer Series cover. Didn't have to undo any straps to access the door. Just unzipped and opened door.
