Trailer cover

Took a couple pictures of our trailer covered with the Calmark cover . I also had them make a cover for the front box. They also made a bump out for my camera on the rear . Pat

Has anyone had any issues with heavy snow/ice loading on the covers when stored for the winter?


Don't have a trailer or cover yet, but I'd like to research everything before I make a purchase. I would have no choice but to store mine outside, and with no chance of building a port (RV parking only option in townhouse complex, I'm lucky to have that much).


Live in Calgary, AB, and its a constant snow/melt/snow weather pattern here most winters.

I've tried to keep any heavier snow load off the cover, I use a snow rack on it when it got much over 6" (15cm). You of course need to be careful the corners of the rake don't tear the cover. I also cover all the sharp edges like on the solar panel with a sliced pool noodle. I use a small laundry basket over the JACK antenna.

I am curious if anyone has experimented with some kind of A-frame under the top that would keep snow from building up.
