have been using the same brand of cover "Mucubberley" just showed here and so far it seems to be doing great!!(even under the 10 inches of snow it has on it right now) The brand name is 'Classic Accessories' they have 3 sizes to choose from in their 'Polypro 3 Teardrop Trailer Cover' group of covers - the one I got is the 8 - 10 foot one (Model 2 #01-0897) and covers everything to include my tongue box, (my trailer is a Benroy shaped 5x8) it has 2 zippered opening's - one for the passage side door and the other for the rear hatch. The list $$ on this was $126 but was able to get it on Amazon for $70. On one of the other forum opening's on this subject, Tony Latham showed a pic of this same one I have now, along with stating he has been using it for years now..... hoping mine holds as well..........so far-so good157239 (only about 2 inches of the snow in this picture on 4Feb)157249up to 9 inches now in this one today..........

Teardrop cover up-date : today when I walked outside, I glanced over to the parked teardrop and saw something that didn't look right = the top of the cover had opened up at the roof-vent area. Is now ++ two years old and the 'paper' material used in it's construction had just fallen apart from weathering. (have seen this happen before in some of the low $$'ed car covers I have bought over the years) It had come with a 3 year 'supposed' factory warranty when new, but since I used it for about "twice" as long this year as last (being it has been sitting all of this year so far covered due to this "epidemic" = NO camping yet!) am not going to bother with the "warranty hazel" = it has served it's purpose and is being replaced with a "supposedly" better made one - more$$$ one - when it gets here. What I paid $68 for two years ago is now $79 on Amazon - so this time, I went ahead and paid the $112 for the "better" made one with the 'Lifetime' Warranty = we'll see? ..... in due time :roll:

I saw something on Facebook where they are selling old billboard vinyl to cover all sorts of things. Made to last in all kinds of weather, t might be better than average tarps.
My teardrop and vintage trailers both have new homes so I just offer suggestions with no actual testing. :?
