Trailer cover

Was looking at CalMarkCovers, but I see on the build sheet that eti sells them. Anyone check out the eti version?

We purchased the ETI cover for our 19. Its a good cover although probably not the quality of a Calmark. It does require a ladder when put on solo and I had to cut a big piece of cardboard for the solar panel on the roof so it would not tear the cover as I put it on. It has a zip up at the door and along the back. It also has 2 straps for underneath to secure on the trailer. Very easy to fold back and put into its duffle bag like carrier.

It's looks to be a cheaper, lighter, easier to put on cover. The trade off being it probably won't last as long.

I have the Calmark, it is heavy and bulkie to work with but does fit great. It's weight help alleviate the problem of the wind, which is what totals the light weight covers.

In May Calmark had a 30% price increase because of the pandemic. I had one on my Casita and was looking to buy one for my 19 foot. The increase put them way out of my price range.

Do you have the model # for your cover? Classic accessories makes covers with various roof material so i was hoping to get specifics on yours.

Can you comment on fit and door access when installed?
