Why Cover UTVs, ATVs, or Snowmobiles?

Jump to “How to Measure UTVs, ATVs, and Snowmobiles for Covers”

Some days all you want to do is get out and go. Let nothing slow or deprive you of your adventure. Covers (applied post a good cleaning) keep your favorite alternative transportation in tip-top shape and ready for the next ride. Power Sport vehicle covers…

  1. Help protect your equipment from water damage
    Covers help limit water accumulation directly on the product, especially when the cover has water resistant or waterproof qualities. This can help prevent rust and corrosion. Additionally, left unattended, standing water (and moisture) can lead to mildewing.* Covers keep a layer between your vehicle and the elements. Helping you forgo preventable refinishing or painting makes them a cost-effective way to maintain the aesthetics of your favorite equipment.

    1. *Mildew (and mold) are fungi  that occur due to the interaction between water and organic material. Covers are only able to help limit this and require some cleaning and ventilation, so that organic elements that have made their way onto your gear don’t have a chance to grow.
  2. Keep out dust and debris
    If you keep your equipment outside, then you expose it to additional weathering. While not ideal for long-term storage without proper aeration, covers can limit the scuffing caused by wind-blown dust, dirt, and debris. Covers will also limit dust accumulation on a vehicle kept inside a garage.
  3. Provide protection from UV ray damage
    Again, applying to mostly outdoor equipment, direct exposure to UV rays can cause fading and material deterioration. Covers, especially those with UV treatments, can block some of the light that does the most damage, increasing the longevity of your product at its current exposure level. Seat covers can be a good way to keep your occasionally empty passenger-side seat from losing its luster on a UTV.
  4. Prevent pests from nesting
    Rodents and other critters are known to burrow or make nests in unwanted places. Covers can make it more difficult for critters to find these nooks and wind up causing themselves or you injury (or from damaging your gear).
  5. Reduce cleaning time
    By protecting your gear with a cover, you will not have to spend as much time cleaning your outdoor equipment at any given time of the year by preventing the accumulation of dust and pollen.
  6. Aesthetics
    Covers provide a tidy, and pleasing look to your yard. Covers will only hide the accumulation of dirt and whatnot from your forays into the city and wilderness, they will not help your vehicle be cleaner inherently. It’s important to keep your gear in good condition, even in the off season and to clean it thoroughly after each use.
