Boat Trailer Cover

I have to store my boat trailer outside. I have been looking for boat trailer covers, but no one seems to be selling any. Looking for some ideas on how to protect my trailer while it is outdoors. Any thoughts are appreciated.

1) Cover the tires, and either keep them off the ground or at least keep the tires on treated wood or concrete to keep tires out of direct contact with grass/ground.

2) Cover the wench assembly with a 5-gallon bucket.

3) If possible, cover your wiring assembly. The wiring coating also cracks with prolonged exposure to sun.

We used to have them made custom, and they're awesome. I have one that is slightly used. It's for a X-45 trailer. We used to retail them for $1200. This one came off a customers boat that we sold for him and the new buyer said he'd never have his boat off the trailer, so we kept it. Don't know what boat you have, but if this will help at all, email me at : [email protected] Believe me, it saved our customers thousands of dollars. Saves the tires, paint, non skids, load guides.............they are great. We sold a lot of them.
