Bailey 79-6 Cover

I'm looking at getting a cover for our motorhome a Bailey 79-6. I've looked at Pro-tec but they are just too expensive. Now looking at a Maypole 4-Ply Premium Breathable Full Motorhome Cover. They do a 7.5m to 8.0m. As the Bailey is 8m long bumper to bumper, anybody had experience to confirm if this cover will be ok? We also have a folded bike rake on the back which adds about 9 inches.

Not sure if there is much leeway with the max cover dimension. Any help would be much appreciated.

ps. I have contacted Leisure Outlet but they would not confirm it suitability.

I don't know about the suitability of that model but personally I wouldn't have a cover because
1. It would prevent the solar panel feeding the batteries to support my alarm and
2. It would risk scratches to bodywork either in the putting on/off or with wind while on.

Also, would you have access to the MH without taking the whole thing off?

Is there a particular reason you feel you need one?
