Default Sled covers

What sled covers are the best? I need a couple new ones for storing in the summer and transporting on my open trailer in the winter. Should I just go OEM or is there something better? thanks in advance for the help!

I've had good luck with OEM. Figure they're tailored to the sled whereas aftermarket may not be, resulting in excess fabric that's gonna just rip.

Also, covers wear out faster when left outdoors over time. I think they're best use is in transport. After that they just wear and thus tear faster. I left mine outside one summer. That winter they were faded thin and ripped out while trailering down the road.

There's a guy local to me (Colorado, lives like 5 minutes from my house, builds these in his garage) who makes his own ... they're DAMN nice covers. A bit pricey, but he can make them custom for your sled if you have bar risers, tunnel extension, luggage, whatever. Reinforced where they need to be reinforced.... good, made-in-USA build quality.
