Hensley Arrow cover?

We have a Hensley Arrow and now love it...took a little getting use to.

We had towed a ski boat but no RV.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone had a gently used Hensley cover for our hitch. If so how much? We are full-timers and just like to take good care of the house.

Thanks, The BadKat

We used a grill cover that fit over the tanks and hitch and tightened down with bungies. Worked great and kept paint from fading

Bought a grill cover and used it briefly til hubby needed to get to the tanks. He did not secure the cover after that check and wind tore it up.

Way too humid down here. Take off the hitch or suffer some rust. Covers make rust worse in this climate.

We'd like a gently used ProPride or a Hensley Arrow if we are now posting wanted threads.

I agree! I bought the cover from Hensley and mine did not stand up that well.

In hindsight, I should have gone with a much less costly alternative - or maybe no cover.
