Storage for CalMark cover

So, just got our new CalMark cover delivered. Eagerly opened the box. Discovered there isn't a storage bag included. I hadn't really thought about that ahead of time.

I could go to The Container Store to look for a bin to put it in, but I was wondering if there was another option.

What all do you folks use to put the cover in when it's not in use? I know the cardboard box it was shipped in will not last forever, so want to get something more permanent.

Now to wait for a few dry days so I can wash and dry the trailer and then we can install the cover. Yay!

Thanks!

Get the container . Best way to store . Don't put away wet though but I am sure you already know that . Pat

You can do want you want with your cover but mine goes in a container and I hope to get lots of life out of it . Bought this one because got tired of replacing other covers every 1 or 2 years . Pat

Wish we had a garage! the one that was here burned down many, many years ago and was never replaced.

+1, but it goes in the basement, no garage either.

How about a trash can?

There are plastic barrels for yard leaves and they can be collapsed. We have one and it is actually nice. Turquoise!

Seems like a fairly trivial solution. Cardboard boxes, rubber maid tubs, large fabric bag with a drawstring, wooden crate, almost anything would work.

Oh I know. I was just curious what others were using since it didn't come with a storage bag. and if it did, not to say I'd be able to get it back in anyway. HA!

My Expedition cover came with its own fabric storage bag. My Calmar cover is stored in a Rubbermaid style tub. Both do the job.
