    Call Camping World. However, I've noted that covers I have purchased just do not hold up, any of them, in situations where there is a lot of UV. One guesses that trailer under a permanent cover (e.g. carport) and a cloth/dedicated cover with the proper material is the best way to go. I go through a cover about every two years due to the wind, smog, and unrelenting sunlight here in So-Cal.

    Forget the one from Camping World unless they have changed in the last few years.I bought one that cost about $200 and it didn't last 2 years. I forgot where I ordered my new one from but as I recall it cost about $500 and well worth it. I've had it for about 3 years and it's held up well, faded from the sun, but otherwise still doing a good job of protecting my 5th wheel. It breaths so the trailer looks just the way it was when covered up for 6 months. I remember it had a 5 year warranty so my wife must have the receipt tucked away somewhere. She's away and I'll be gone hunting for a week. If you want to give me a call in about a week I'll try and round up the receipt which will have the name of the outfit I bought it from.

    Good to know that there are other sources than Camping World for this...I expect no more than 3 years per cover even with the higher priced "custom fit" model.

    I had the same problem. I had a steel carport installed from American Steel Carports. Not much more cost than a high end cover. I have a 28' camper. Kriegart
