Alumaguard? Is that what I need?

The 70's Tradewind I just bought has a ripped, frayed gray exterior cover. Can someone tell me about replacing it? The AS is in Maryland near DC.

Many thanks.

If you are talking about a fabric cover that goes over your trailer when parked, most people will suggest that you are better off with out it. The fabric can cause marks on the surface of the aluminum skin. Covered parking would be a better solution, IMO.

awning cover

Thanks for the response!

I'm talking about something that just covers the awning. I guess to protect that part of the fabric that would be exposed to sunlight even when not rolled out.

See pix. It shows the problem.
