I have ducksback for my other rib but they dont go so small
Any suggestions for decent quality that wont make my eyes water when I hear the price?
Don't know what your idea of an eye watering price is?
I use a custom made Honwave cover for my 3.5m Honwave.
Had it three years now and it has been worth every penny.
I give it a couple of sprays of aerospace 303 uv protector each year.
If your planning in keeping your sib long term it's a worthwhile investment, if not it's a good selling point,
Honwave make them in 2.7 as well as bigger sizes.
It's good quality and you get what you pay for.
They are around 90 quid for your 2.7m.
Mines out in all weather's on the trailer keeps sib dry and protected from uv.
Some pics of how I set mines up with tent poles and an old bin and ratchet straps to
create a sloped ridge.
Sheds water a treat!
I use a heavy duty blue tarp - tucked into the edge of the cover. It cost 6 quid and helps preserve the cover and sib from uv rays.It's held in place with three bungee cords.
The cover set up on the sib without the pole etc just pools water which causes puddles to sag the cover down into the sib.
