    A few funsters have expressed problems obtaining a screen cover for AClass vans. I had the same problem in the UK and the only option was to travel 200 miles and have a fitted cover. This in total would cost well over £340. After researching a company in Italy who sold on EBay I contacted them for a cover for my Carthago AClass. After sending various photos and agreeing a delivered price the screen arrived and it is brilliant. The fitting is perfect and there customer response has been excellent to say the least.The total price delivered was £240. If you are intested they offer screens for nearly all A & C Class motorhomes. plus vans. Just type into EBay motorhome screen covers.

    Thanks for that, I have sent an enquiry to Covertech but will not get a reply till the end of August due to annual holidays. Looking on their e bay shop there is a Laika cover that may be suitable, the search goes on(y)
    I have to agree with your comments on the UK option, I have contacted them and been told that they will not supply a bespoke cover directly, I would have to order through a "distributor" yet their web site shows the product with a contact phone number and no reference to an agent. Price in excess of £400 if you want additional privacy screen. Rant over:mad:

    I cannot believe the specific UK manufacturer hasn't a template available. Nice little earner for them. Buying from the Italian supplier made a refreshing change to rip offer Britain.

    No dimensions were given as they are main suppliers and have Laika listed on the card that came with my cover. It fits on the sides with PROPER suckers and the top straps can tighten the fit snuggly. I wasn't sure if this would be enough but it does work fine and is a good fit.

    We have Cover tech full length covers for our Transit cab.
    They work well in the Alpine Winter.

    Update, had a reply from Italy and no luck. They make a screen for the Laika Kreos but not the Rexosline.
    Also tried a Dutch distributor of Hinderman screens, no joy there either. :(

    Hinderman were making the screens for Frankia but they were a poor fit,there was a bulge in the middle at the top of the screen.They offered me one cheap but i declined,what was the point in buying a screen that doesn't do the job properly.
