Autumn is the perfect time to go ATVing. There’s a smoky crispness to the air, tinging your cheeks a mischievous red as you bundle up tighter in your sweater. As the leaves swirl around your feet, providing a satisfying crunch when trod upon, those still in the trees glow magnificent oranges, yellows and reds. Yes, autumn is the perfect time for ATVing. But when you do go out, it’s inevitable that you’re going to meet with some unseemly weather, the likes of which can do lasting damage to your ATV/UTV. With a couple of easy tips, though, extending the life of your ATV/UTV will be as easy as admiring autumnal splendor.
Reducing Damage from the Elements
Anytime you take your ATV/UTV out in the wild, you’re bound to meet with mud, twigs, branches and water. Happening across these once or twice won’t damage your vehicle, but repeated exposure without clearing it off can. Another surprising way your ATV/UTV can be damaged is by..not being exposed to the elements at all! Even stowing your vehicle in the garage leaves it susceptible to things like water accumulation and rust, dying battery and subpar tires. It’s so important to get a cover for your ATV/UTV, if only to save yourself oodles of money and headaches down the road.
Size Things up Right
First, check out the measurement specifications your ATV/UTV manufacturer listed in the vehicle manual. It’s a lot easier to have the numbers in hand when you go to pick out a cover instead of looking at a selection and thinking they’d all fit your vehicle. Once you’ve got that done, look at covers that fit and have a ventilation system. Without one, your ATV/UTV is at a big risk of trapping water, leading to rust. And because rust is like an iceberg, what you see is only the tip of the damage.
Trail-er Cover with You
Chances are, unless your backyard is on acres and acres of forest, you’re going to be driving your ATV/UTV to a specific spot. And to do that, it makes a lot of sense to cover it as you’re cruising down the freeway: it’ll protect your vehicle from any flying debris- or just plain flies. But make sure you get one that form fits, so it doesn’t fly off when you’re changing lanes. A cover with straps and an elastic hem is just the thing you need to keep it on nice and tight.
