Cover for 5.4m Searider

As you can see from my signature I've already bought a cover for our SIB - for those with the Searider 5.4m - which size did you get or what would you recommend that fits well - we have an A frame hence my hesitation

Many thanks once again

I spoke to a lad on ebay who was very helpful, stangely enough the 3m cover fits my SR4 as my console doesn't go too high above the tubes. The 3m cover I got is actually 4m long to take into account console height.

Ebay shop Coversandbags (I think) sold me mine. You'd just have t get some zips put in to go round the A-frame.

Anyone else find there's leaks more than you would hope? Even with it stretched tight so no puddles can form.

Nope.

Mind you I did re-waterproof it after about a year with a can of tent waterproofing spray.
