Now that I've discovered my ebay cover may not work for me I'm thinking of having a "carport" type cover built for Dottie. I'm a newbie but am already getting the idea that this could be a bottomless pit. I think a carport might work great for normal cover but if I have windows off while I'm working on it I assume I'd still have to block wind and wet from the side. What do you suggest?

The carport will help but you are right, you'll still get wet ...I used two smaller tarps while I had my SOB's skin peeled back. Working alone the smaller tarps were easier to manage when I was done for the day. I placed some heavy wood or bricks on top to hold down the tarp. You could also clamp a smaller tarp around your window area. I bought a bag of cheap clamps from Harbor Freight. You can get your tarps there also. The carport will be $1000.00 that you could of have spent on Dottie! Of course our Shasta is in the new garage and our cars are sitting out in the weather!!

Just wanted to add that my EBay cover didn't work either - I even spoke with the guy who re-assured me the 16 sc would fit and I didn't need to go up to 18. It only comes 3/4 of the way to the ground and the wings are about ready to poke out the end. He has not responded to my email and I am ready to leave negative feedback on the item.

I didn't even get far enough to know if it would fit. I just couldn't manage it by myself especially since I'm a bit shaky on tall ladders. Since I didn't get any bites on the forum in regards to resale, I sent the ebay guy a note about returning and he responded promptly so I'm sending it back. Now, will I get a credit? If not, I'll do negative feedback as well.
