I know that this has been discussed often. I am just asking if there is anything new on the market to cover my Casita. My first cover was damaged by wind, so I gave up on wrapping our baby. But then the dirt. . . Any ideas regarding a cover would be appreciated. Cost, no problem.

Have had a CalMark Cover for almost a year. It is well made and custom fit for my 16ft Casita Spirit Deluxe. It has a zipper door opening that makes it very easy to enter the trailer when in storage. It comes with a limited 6 year warranty against factory defects. It fits nicely over the awning and roof vent. Have not had the trailer in hurricane 80 to 120 mile an hour winds yet but...has been in 50 MPH wind gusts. I would buy another CalMark.

Calmark. Expensive, but worth it. It's sunbrella, so lighter and lasts longer. It also breathes unlike a tarp. Zip open door access too.
They have patterns for all the Casitas too.
Here's my review:

We bought a CalMark cover when we bought our Casita 17SD new in 2009. Cover was expensive, but well worth the investment. The cover is now 9 years old and still looks like new. It has survived harsh and snowy Wisconsin winters with gusty winds. I use a few bungee cords across the bottom to keep it snug during our long winters. I will definitely buy another CalMark when this one wears out.

This is just the info that I needed. Casita folks are great. We bought our Freedom Deluxe in 2007 and bought a cover which couldn't take our heavy weather (northern Illinois). I'm going to follow the CallMark advice although I appreciate the practical tarp and rope suggestion. I am very grateful to the kind people who answered my question.

I have a CalMark Cover as well. It has lasted us 6 summers in Texas' unrelenting sunshine. I can tell the UV rays are hard on the fabric, but I feel it is the best protection short of a roof overhead. I guess the older it gets the more careful I have to be with it when I roll it on and off. I use a step ladder to assist and can complete the job by myself. If I can get ten years total out of the thing I will be happy with my investment. It is stained and worn, but still does a fine job protecting the Casita. The door is key enabling access to the trailer without having to take the thing on and off. Would I buy another one? Yes.
