I'm looking to buy a trailer cover for a 1970 Sprite and don't know where to look. Are there sites that anyone would recommend to purchase such from? (I'm not looking for a tarp to throw over it, also.)

You need to take several things into consideration before you purchase an RV cover for your trailer. Are you looking for something to cover it while it's stored inside your garage, or will it be stored in a outside area that's exposed to the sun. Many (actually most) of these "different brand" RV covers are made in one or two factories in China. The cover side that will be exposed to the UV rays of the sun, will rot in as little as six months, even in moderate sun locals like So. California. They are not made of high quality materials.
Ventilation, make sure the trailer can breathe when the cover is on. Do not use just a plastic tarp which will keep moisture trapped inside.
Fit, Make sure the cover fits well, and does not flap in the wind, or it will damage your new paint from abrasion.
I buy R Pod covers. The 150 fits a trailer body 13' 1" and the 170 is somewhat bigger. They have a zippered door opening and fit canned hams really well. Don't think it would work for a 70 Sprite, too rounded...
This company custom makes covers and tents. I don't have one of their covers but I have a custom made screen room for my teardrop and I know people who have their covers and canopies. They do excellent work.
