Calmark Covers

Anyone have any experience with Calmark covers? I've searched this forum and haven't seen anyone comment on them. I know that Airstream doesn't recommend a cover for storage do due moisture build up and damage to the clear coat, but the company Calmark claims that Sunbrella material is breathable and states the following feature of their covers: "On all CalMark RV Covers, we install 2″ 1000 pound test Nylon (non-Abrasive) webbing straps that are sewn across the inside top, every 4 feet and connected to the side panels." Hoping to become a 22' Sport owner this winter and just exploring storage options for the high desert of Central Oregon (i.e. Bend).

I saw a video out there somewhere of a couple installing a cover on a Casita. It was not pretty. They had long handles made from PVC (which will have to be stored somewhere) and were not having a good time.

I have used car covers for years on my Street Rods, but would never think of covering my trailer long term outside. Wind will tear the cover and cause chaffing on the trailer surface. If you want to remove the cover and it happens to be wet, well, that's another whole story. A wet car cover is not nice to deal with, I can't imagine dealing with a wet trailer cover.

Not my "cup of tea".

I did end up purchasing the ADCO as mentioned in that other thread. Best thing I have done for protecting and keeping our Excella clean. Saved many hours of work washing/waxing last year.
I took some before/after video of covering last year...have no idea how to post video on this forum...anyway we are very pleased with the ADCO on our AS just as we have been with our other RV's.
