Hi all

I'm wanting to get a decent all-weather cover for my camper trailer for when its not in use. It's just a 6x4 sized trailer with an Oztrail 6 tent on it.

I have seen this on fleabay:

Prestige Camper Trailer Cover

Does anyone have this one or can recommend an alternative? This one it appears is made by (or for) Haigh Australia.

Willing to spend up to a couple of hundred on one.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Road warrior.

I had a very pricey cover for my caravan ( cost nearly $400 ) and I thought it was a pretty good quality but unfortunately it only lasted 2 years.
I was pretty disappointed. Next time I store the Van it will be under a Carport thats for sure.

We had a Dingo CT fro 10 years and our cover lasted the whole time - however, our friends with the same trailer had to replace their cover after about 4 years - the difference was ours was in a garage when not in use, (not often), theirs lived in their back yard with no shelter - the sun apparently caused the cover to deteriorate, and after a particularly bad weather situation - lots and lots of rain - they had wet canvas, consequently mould - very difficult to get rid of as we all know.
The cost of a tarp, and checking for deterioration of this and the cover on a regular basis will prevent this from happening, in my opinion.
So - cheap silver tarp from Bunnings would be my choice.

Thanks fellas. I have a shed, but its too small for the trailer and is full of all my junk anyway. Getting a bigger shed isn't going to happen because of $$$ and baby No. 1 just around the corner and I don't want to spend that sort of coin on a house we're only going to be in for another year or so. The other alternative is that I can build an annexe between the shed and the side fence to put it under, but I would still want a snug cover for the trailer.

I agree that some of those fancy covers aren't what they are cracked up to be - I used to spend up big on felt lined PVC covers for my motorcycles and after a year in the weather they started cracking!
