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

I use a blue Ikea bag. They cost a buck. Jim

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.

Eight years, a little faded but still works very well....(POI the HAHA does come off for Winter storage)

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.

Mine is showing some wear.....It came with my used HAHA.

bad kat, Hightech Ikea bag covering the Hensley. When it gets dirty or rips, I get another one. So far I have used two over 3 winters. JimAttachment 230573

+1. That's my choice ... cheap and covers tanks, battery and my beloved Hensley. Bet you never saw "cheap" and "Hensley" used in the same sentence, but in this case it works! :)

Well, the grill cover sounds great for a replacement for my jury rigged tarp winter cover, but I need the quick cover for "little leg protection" while camped and on the driveway. See my Avitar...it is right at tricycle head level. I think the grill cover is too much labor for that short term use. Anybody found a "glove" instead of a "body bag"?

OOPS, forgot, I changed my avitar...see my profile.
