Nice cover. When I bought my CalMark cover for my 17, I was under impression it only covered the trailer, and not the propane tanks or storage box. Accordingly, I had them construct a separate cover for the tanks and box, which came out not fitting quite as nicely as the trailer cover. After I get my 19 I'll order one like yours! Would you be willing to share the dimensions you gave CalMark, via PM? I can adjust them for the A/C and Maxx fan.

Please do a search under General Escape forum for Calmart and you will find the measurement and pictures that I used to order my cover. On my trailer I have AC ,Max Air Fan ,awning and the spare tire all fit under the cover .

Hi Jim,
I had a helper and used two of these 10 FT poles to put the cover on. It took us less then 15 minutes and that was our time we put the cover on our trailer.

I dropped battery monitor cables and an Umbra hook in the mail, today.

My T@B is sold, we're trailerless and the anticipation is getting painful. Two large dogs that want to go camping NOW isn't helping.

I punched 6 little holes in the spare tire cover to allow rainwater to drain from the bottom.

I began planning how to install a baffle behind my 4.3 but without pulling the fridge out. Got left over corrugated plastic I want to employ. I think there's a way it can be done.

You'd better get that dog (bear?) out camping soon. He'll need his own trailer.


Mark, that looks like a handy tool that we could use.

Good luck inserting it. I'll be interested to see how it goes. My trailer has the baffle but I want to add some Reflectix between it and the trailer skin. My thought is that it'll reduce heat build up in an area where getting rid of heat is the name of the game.
