19' cover

2013 19' I need a cover that fits it well and is sturdy, any suggestions?
Always stored it indoors at a storage barn. They decided this year to up the rates by $6.00 per foot per month. It's to late in my area to find another place so cover and store in my yard is the solution. Thanks,Herb

The Cal-Mark cover that came with my new-to-me 2013 19" works well. CalMark Cover Co - Custom RV Covers for Travel Trailers, Campers, Motorhomes, Casita & Scamp RV Covers

Also, Classic Accessories is designing a cover to fit the Escape 19. It is not on the website yet, but they are telling me that it will be ready by the end of September. I had one of their's for my 17 and really liked the fit.

Purchased a Classic Accessories RV cover for our 19 last year at it held up well and no scratches, etc to the trailer. Fit was a bit big but was able to make it work, plan on using it this winter. Cost was about $300 Canadian which was a lot less than the Calmark.

Will not hold up if you deal with UV's like in California . Calmark will hold up . Pat

Just ordered a Calmark cover for our yet-to-be hatched 19er this past Thursday. We will get it before we make the trip to Chilliwack for pickup. Had a Calmark for our Scamp and it performed well. While I'd dearly love to be able to store our new baby indoors, the Calmark is the next best thing we can do IMHO.

I think the Calmart cover is an excellent cover, just not cost-effective for me to pay the higher cost in US funds. Kamloops by the way gets lots of sun (316 days a year). The Calmart cover is made of acrylic Sunbrella fabric and has a 6 year warranty. I had the same fabric on my saltwater boat canvas and when treated annually with a UV protectant lasted about 10 years before the fabric was heavily faded and the stitching and fabric failed.

The Classic Accessories fabric is not as good (polypropylene), has a 3 year warranty and I expect it to last 5 years with annual UV treatment. At 1/4 of the cost I figure it is a good alternative to the Calmark.
