Calmark cover for 19' Escape with box

I am in the process of ordering a Calmark cover for a 19' Escape I pick up in January. What are my choices as far as the storage box is concerned? Is there room to slide the cover between the trailer and the box? Do I want to cover the box/and/or the propane tanks? Will the measurements Calmark has on file cover the box?
Thanks for thoughts, advice, etc.

I went with the Adco but in answer to the sizing aspect; I like the size that I have because it covers the box, propane tanks and the hitch.

We have a Calmark cover for our 19 ft. Based on the measurement we provided to Calmark, the cover will cover the storage box in the front and spare tire in the rear, but not large enough to reach the dual propane cover. We hope this info help.

Well if I did it wouldn't have a pumpkin with a candle in it. I learned the hard way the effect of heat on that fabric when I used a hot air gun to defrost the zipper

What you did is exactly what we want. Do you know if your measurements are what Calmark is presently using for the 19'?
thanks so much.

When I ordered my Calmark, I sent lots of pictures and had the cover made to go between the trailer and storage box /spare tire per Calmark's recommendation, e.g., "For best protection against the wind capturing the cover we would recommend going between the spare and the body at the rear, and between the storage box and the front of the cabin for best trailer protection of the trailer."

One of the the things I like about the Adco is that it has the adjustable webbing front and back that allows for snugging up the cover so that it is more wind tolerant. That and complete coverage of the front area and the spare tire.

I just ordered one yesterday for my 19, and sent them these photos, from someone here on the forum. I asked to have the cover go over the spare tire. Otherwise, it will hang on the bumper. They'll do it either way. I'm expecting mine will go between the trailer and storage box in the front. When I had my 17 I had CalMark make a separate cover for the storage box, propane tanks and tongue jack. I wasn't all that wild about it, so decided not to cover those, at least at this time. On the 17, the cover also went over the spare tire.

Your width measurement (83") doesn't account for the awning. Will your cover stretch enough?

Pat from Simi Valley ( Patandlinda) has a 2013 - 19 with front storage, and since Calmark is close by in Oxnard, they were able to actually physically measure hers.
Pat, are you out there today?

We purchased a Calmark cover using the dimensions in the photos, and just put it on our 19 last week. It fits over the awning with no difficulty.

Anyone care to share what they paid?

My storage is outside for the winter, not under any trees. Debating about buying a cover, pros vs cons?

To paraphrase that old expression "I've been poor and I've been rich...." I've been gone coverless and I've been gone covered and quick frankly, I prefer covered.

At the end of the day, unless you live in a very benign climate, a cover just keeps the trailer more protected.

I just got a fast quote from calmark for 19 and it was $625. I still have to provide the measurement sheet so guess that could be subject to change.

They asked if I had an awning. They adjust for those things, and for having an air conditioner, Maxx Fan and solar panel.
