Horse trailer covers?

Postby texsuze » Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:08 pm

Boy, I seem to have the record for the most new topic threads in this category :D

If/when I ever get my horse trailer repairs undertaken (see whichever of my previous posts), I've thought about using some type of horse trailer cover (like a car cover) for at least some level of protection from the elements. I use tire covers to reduce UV exposure and will need to get a new set, since the hail storm shredded 2 out of my 4.

I seldom trailer (maybe 2-3x/year) and don't have the ability to erect a carport or structure to house my Exiss 2H BP trailer.

Anyone have any recommendations for mfgs. or features (door openings, etc.) for trailer covers? Am I likely to get at least 3-4 years good use out of a trailer cover?

Google Beverley Bay trailer covers. How much time you get out of one will depend on your weather and which cover you choose, but those are a decent brand.

Will you have help covering said trailer? I have often thought of a cover but the logistics are just a no-go for me. No one to help. I would need a ladder to reach the top and heaven forbid if the wind is blowing. I did store it undercover for a few years but now it is just parked out. I do have tire covers. Luckily, Idaho is really dry about 8 months of the year so moisture usually isn't a big deal here. I pull up the mats when it is stored so the floor can readily dry out if it does get wet.

Susan, I never have help with anything horse/barn related ;) I'd probably have my trusty aluminum ladder ready. Since I rarely use the trailer anymore it would likely stay covered most of the time. I also use the tire covers and insurance is paying for some of the cost of a new pair since the ones on the "hail side" were shredded.

I worry about moisture being trapped under a cover after rain, but mostly heat/sun exposure. We have a fabric-type cover for our old Land Cruiser which has done really well sitting out under the trees. I'd have to locate the manufacturer for that cover.
