van cover

my ride may have to spend some of the winter outside this year as my overly crowded shop got a little smaller this summer with another car, so i need some help picking out a decent cover. i've found a few online but the measurements aren't exactly perfect. the bumpers pretty much throw the numbers off and it seems the few that i've seen are for the bubble top not a pop up. i figure its going to be a one shot purchase so any advice on this will be appreciated.
i have the eb 350 4x4. it does have duallys but that shouldn't matter to much.

I would recommend checking out Camping World. They will custom make a cover for you based on your measurements. They even have options like velcro openings for doors. I have not ordered one from them but will be when my present cover dies.

adco covers

i ended up getting the adco model adc-12220 cover. it was about 160.00 at camping world. it fits ok. a little loose. when it rains it does have a couple spots that pouch up and hold water. i need to tie it back and secure it a little. i think if it blows over 30 i would take it off to keep it from ripping. the good news is i made some more room in my shop so i think it will have a warm dry place to spend the winter months when we are not using it.
i haven't figured out pics yet just the ones on my album. any help on this would be appreciated.

Jage ,
The rear wheel configuration is most likely an E-450 Van they can be special ordered thru an OEM or a dealership that does a lot of fleet sales , I believe that you can get an E-550 made as well .

Jochi, nice looking SMB. In your album where all the photos are listed, there is a "url" link immediately below each picture. Just copy the entire text to the right of the "url" and paste it in a message (from [url... to /url]).



If you quote this message, you can see how the image was inserted into this post.
