Choosing a Snowmobile Cover

Your snowmobile cover should have plenty of straps for a tight, customized fit.

Looking for a high quality snowmobile cover? Here are some tips to help you find the right snowmobile cover for your sled.

Sizing

Get the right size. The better the snowmobile cover fits, the better it will stay in place and protect your sled. Measure your snowmobile length before placing your order. If you have more questions about fitment, contact customer service before choosing a snowmobile cover.

Trailering

For trailering a snowmobile, the more straps that you have on your cover, the better it will stay in place. Straps offer a tighter, more customized fit for universal snowmobile covers.

Fabric

Fabric thickness is an important clue to the durability of a snowmobile cover. The cover should also have reinforcements at all stress points—wherever the fabric rubs against hard points on the sled. Reinforced fabric will last hold up better against abrasion.

Breathability

The cover should be breathable. Moisture that gets trapped underneath the cover will promote the growth of mold and mildew, but with a built-in venting system, water stays out and condensation can evaporate.

Extras

A gas tank zipper for fueling up on the trailer comes in handy—no need to remove the snowmobile cover to fill up the gas tank.

A storage cover also comes in handy. Just fold or roll the cover and stuff it in the bag for safe keeping when the cover is not in use.
