I recently went from an enclosed trailer to a small flatbed for pulling our ATVs. I regularly pull them long distances and was planning to order a couple of Can-Am covers for protection during transport. However, someone recently told me that an ATV cover will scratch the ATV significantly if used for this purposes (wind and associated friction I suppose). Does anyone in this forum have experience with this one way or the other? Your advice would be much appreciated.

I posted this exact same question in the outlander section the other day, and the general consensus was that, yes, a cover could do more harm than goos flapping in the wind in an open trailer. There is nothing on our quads that rain will harm, even the gauge cluster pod from what I was told.

I brought my shiny new 2015 home in the winter with salt & sand flying everywhere on the hwy so I figured a cover would help seeing they work well with the sleds. Big mistake that required a lot of buffing to get the scratches out. Fortunate the XTP comes with painted plastics at least ... lesson learned for me, lol.
But hey ... the cover did do a great job at keeping the salt & sand from getting packed into every nook & cranny, lol ... been there too.

I don't like to trailer my quads down the road sideways as it can make the fenders flop around too much. My kids raptors are very bad when side ways down the road.
