G'day all - happy new year to you - just got back from a week at Porepunkah - friends came with their CT - and when we unpacked it there was a heap of mould on the awning, side walls, roof and interior walls - a lot of water was in the tarp they use under the CT - and we thought that it must have been folded up wet last Easter - but - on further investigation it was discovered that the cover had gone brittle, and perished in quite a few places - letting the rain in - it is stored outside with no tarp - may have been ok if the plastic tarp hadn't been under there as well because it kept the water in.
So just a warning - check your cover - and put your tarps underneath in the trailer storage rather than on top of canvas.
We managed to get the mould spores off, but the staining is still there - the worst of it is on the zip off awning, so they may get a new one as well as a new cover - and keep in covered from now on.
Apart from that - the weather was great - not too hot - just right - had a great time.

I have noticed a few other ct's with the following, tried it and found it works really well. We have a cover of shade cloth with eyelets (the plastic do it yourself type) around the edge. This pulls tight across the trailer cover with occy straps. When camped, it doubles as a mat in front of the door. Shade cloth is close to indestructible. The plastic cover will probably last years longer and everything keeps much smoother when towing.
