Review of the Adco Bumper Pull Trailer SFS AquaShed Cover


Hey everyone. I'm Collin here at etrailer. Today we're going to take a look at the Adco FSF AquaShed cover for bumper pull trailers. This cover is going to do a great job of protecting your trailer from the elements while it's in storage. It's good for temporary use for those months where you might not be using it so often. It's going to be good for those fox utility trailers, horse trailers, anything to that nature.With the cover installed it's going to protect your trailer and prevent you from having to wash and wax it repeatedly.

You don't have to do as many exterior treatments. And just protecting it from those harmful UV rays is going to prevent it from cracking and fading more over time.The side panels are constructed out of a triple layer polypropylene material. That's going to be very lightweight and allow your cover to breathe to help prevent the build-up of mold and mildew, as well as making sure those harmful UV rays can not reach your trailer.The cover is available in multiple different sizes. How you measure your trailer to make sure you get the correct size, is you go from the front of the box, not where the tongue is. We just have that covered because we had some access, but go to the front to the back in length and then measure from top to bottom for your height.

And then just check the description below to make sure that those dimensions fit your needs.Now the reason that we have the cover draped over the tongue of our trailer is because it's just over about 16 feet. It measures about 16 and a half. So the 16 foot cover doesn't work. We had to jump it up to 18, but with that extra foot and a half we went ahead and just took it and put it over the tongue so we can protect the jack from rust and corrosion and such.If you choose not to have the cover draped over the tongue, but you still do have some slack and it's all against the box of the trailer, you do have the option to use the included cinch rope to use through the eyelets right here. We have one right, another one at the bottom and two more on the other side.

Using this cinch rope you can secure it and take out that slack to make sure you have a nice snug fit on your trailer.It also has three undercarriage straps to assist you with securing it to you trailer. These are going to go all the way underneath of your trailer to help make sure even on a windy day, it can't be blown off of your trailer.It is going to include a zippered side panel on the side of our trailer. This is so that we can access that side door should we need to while it's in storage. We're going to come down here and take the first zipper up and while we're at it, take off the hook and loop strap. Zip it up all the way.

Do the same on the other side.You will have to unbuckle the undercarriage strap that is on the side panel. Just set that on the ground. And now we're just going to roll it up. It doesn't have to be pretty. We just need it rolled up so we can stow it up on top so it's not in our way.Once at the top just grab the strap with the hook and loop pad on it. Fasten it up top on both sides. Now we can gain full access to the side door and grab anything we might need. There is also a zippered panel on the back to allow you to gain access to the rear doors as well. Now depending on the application, you may not be able to open the doors all the way. With our doors right here they are a bit taller than the panel can go up. We can still open them slightly if there's just one thing we have to reach or to get inside. However you still have that side panel if you need to grab something big out of the trailer.The top panel is going to have a triple layer FSF AquaShed construction. It's going to help bead water on contact so it's not going to pull on top of your cover and it's going to guard against those harmful UV rays that might cause cracking or fading over time. So your trailer's just going to last a long longer. You're not going to have to worry about it aging.Overall this cover is going to do a great job of protecting your trailer. Adco is a very well known manufacturer of these covers. They have great products. They stand by them. They're going to make sure that your investment is protected through those storage months.It is also going to come with this bag. It's going to make for easy storage. You're not going to have to worry about folding it up and then storing it on a shelf with the possibility of it falling off and it also will keep it clean when not in use.Now that we've gone over some of those features, let's show you guys how to get it installed.The first time you get your cover out of your box it is going to be rolled up, so we're just going to roll it out. I'm going to show you guys the most effective way to do this by yourself. So if you do have an extra set up hands that would help. So just roll it out and then just begin to unfold it.Now there is going to be labels on our cover. Right here we see that this says front, so we need to make sure we install this on the front of our trailer. Now it's easiest to line it up. Now we have the front matching the front, the rear matching the rear.Now at this point you see this different material on top. That's going to be the top of our cover. What we're going to do is take our cover and lay it completely flat on the ground with that top sticking up. Now from here what we're actually going to do is flip the cover inside out and then roll it up. So we'll start here at the corner. Like I said, that different material, that's the top. We're just going to push down and then bring the cover, reach for the bottom side. Again, flip it inside itself.We're just going to make our way around the cover and do this. Once you locate your case right here, just ahead and set that to the side. Now in this position what we're going to do is just slightly roll it back up to make it more compact so we can carry it.Now with it rolled up we're going to grab our cover. We're going to go up our ladder at the front of the trailer. We're going to set it on top and then just make our way down the sides, rolling it on the top. Because our trailer can not support the weight of a person we're going to have to just kind of work around it with some ladders.You kind of start by pulling down on the front. Let's push it back just a little bit. Now we're just going again, make our way down the sides with our ladder and just rolling it out. If you have a small enough trailer this is something that can be done just by one side. And while we're on one side, we're just going to continue to pull it down the sides and drape them over the trailer.Now we're just going to work our way around the sides and just pull it down to the bottom of the trailer. Just make sure you get the elastic under the trailer like so. If you have enough slack in the front of your trailer, we do have a good amount right here, so we're just going to take that and pour it over the tongue of our trailer.Now we're going to secure our undercarriage straps. We're going to have three of them. The easiest way to do on the ends in my opinion is just for you to take on the end. I'm going to walk behind the trailer and just bring it under and up. Then we're going to come down here and locate my other connection point and then secure it, tighten it down. Then I'm just going to tuck my buckle up into the included pocket right there. With the excess, you can just toss that under or just secure it however you would like.We're also going to do the same thing with the front. Just come under. We will have to come behind our jack and you should be good from there. Again, find that buckle point. Attach it and secure it. The little one will be a little bit trickier. All we're basically going to have to do is throw it under our cover to the other side. If you don't get it the first time, just come back around and keep trying until you can reach it from the other side. Now we locate it, buckle it up and tighten it down.Now from there you're good to go. Thank you all for watching. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the Adco SFS AquaShed cover for bumper pull trailers.
