View Full Version : Trailer Guide Covers

I got my guide covers in today. I ordered them from Bakes since the MC branded ones were receiving not so great reviews. The stitching looks pretty solid on them. I'm not expecting it to be an issue. I went with the heavy duty ones. They're a bit thicker than the standard ones.

Please post pics. I'm looking to replace my weathered Mastercraft covers. Where's the best place to look?

For a second I was wondering why you were at my house when you took the pic---I have the same table and chairs-:)--thanks for the link I've been looking for a good set of covers.

Those look nice. Of course, the problem with anything with screened lettering on it is that it will come off on the rub rail. My last set, I ordered some blank red ones from a guy on ebay. The quality was great and nothing rubs off.

Yeah screen printing will come off, but the overall quality seems on point.

I got some a few years ago with the lettering up and down. Of course the lettering is rubbing off too. ENJOY!

Do you need the pvc tube on the tow guides when using the heavy duty foam ones the OP showed?

05-17-2011, 11:36 AM
The trailer guides, yes... Not an immediate need, but a nice to have :)

aren't those just the heavy duty one's listed on MCBD's site? they have two sets listed, one is like $30 and the "heavy-duy" version is close to $60?

Spot on with the prices Bruce. There is a BIG difference in the quality of the two of them, when I need another set there will be justification in the extra 30 bills.

My mastercraft dealer just gives me new ones when mine wear out. They have the Mastercraft boats with a plug for "Texas Ski Ranch" included. doesn't bother me one bit, the price is right.
