Could anyone give me a recommendation on where to find two items for my
New Retro 155. Am looking for a good fitting cover for that trailer, and also
an awning . Phoned Riverside and was told they don't sell either of those.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Dennis - do you mean the attached awning over the door?  
My 155 has one and I can get the name off it if you're interested.

Thanks for replying, Tom. Yes, would be interested in knowing where you got yours.

Mine is from Carefree of Colorado. It appears from the website to be the Fiesta model. I can send measurements if you want.
Don't know if it's oem or not as I got the 155 used.

I have never covered any of our RV's during the winter up  here in the frozen North. I put on a good coat of wax and let the snow fly. On my Airstream (which is still for sale if anyone is interested) the cover would freeze, then scratch the surface when it blew around in the wind. I imagine the same could  happen to a Retro. Our pop-ups which we rented were lined up in back, waxed and not covered, I did cover the tires to help prevent rot but if you do this you must repack bearings in the spring due to moisture. I do not cover the tires on my Airstream, the wheels are magnesium and will corrode. So my advice is to save the money, wax and leave it to  the elements. These units are designed to be outside.

Dennis,
I have the Carefree that Tom referred to. I removed it from my 166, because it was too small (6 L x 5.5 W, extended) but may be perfect for a 155. I know they use it on the 155XL. You can have it, but shipping from PA to CA may not be cost effective, and you would have to get the rail/track, but that is only about $2/foot. Let me know if you want it and can arrange shipping.

That sounds about right size wise.  Too small (HAHA!).
But that's what it came with.
