We bought the very expensive cover from Escape, but after two winters it was pretty tattered. Someone on the forum mentioned a company in the states that custom makes covers for a variety of trailers, including Escapes. It was only around $60.00, and still under $100 with shipping and duty. I'm really happy with it so far, and hope to get a longer life out of it by sweeping the snow off to keep it from tearing over the TV antennae. I did not get it on in time, and wet poplar leaves stained my roof.

We ordered a custom Calmark cover from California for our 19. It is made of Sunbrella and guaranteed for 6 years. Our blog has several entries about the cover, including pictures, so rather than repeat that info here in the forum, you can check it out on Kibitka.blogspot.com
To help you find them, the entries are in June, July and August of 2012.

Am wondering if that is in the U.S. or Canada.Also can you order it to fit ,so the door is in the right place to have access.

We got ours from the Elitemotorline off eBay. There is no door on the cover, but if you loosen the straps, you can still squeeze in the trailer door.

We bought one of the last ones from Escape for our 17B. This will be the 2nd winter for it - came through fine last year. We do cover the solar panels and other projections with foam before putting the cover on as a precaution to extend the life of the cover.

When the cover wears out, we will be purchasing an aluminum "carport" to cover our Escape.

I'm awaiting delivery from CalMark of a Sunbrella cover for my 17B. Pricey, but after looking at one on a Casita, I'm confident it will be a good investment. I sent them them measurements and photos, and will have the door opening in the correct location. Also having them build a separate matching cover for the dual tanks & storage locker that will cover the entire front end, including the hitch. I'll post pictures when I get them, probably after Thanksgiving.
