Snowmobiling is one of the exciting and an interesting seasonal sport to enjoy. It is best practiced at places where there is a very good snow condition. However, the fall season means that winter is just around the corner. This is always characterized by the leaves starting to turn colors; chill in the air etc. All these signs shows that it’s time to put away your summer toys such as motorcycle, personal watercraft, etc. It is therefore crucial to put in place ideal snowmobile storage procedures to maintain it in top condition for next season’s adventures. You’ll be glad it was properly stored/covered when you go to start it up for the first time this season.

If your machine wasn’t covered, whether you store it indoor or outdoor, it will probably look like a mess. Bird droppings are unpleasant and can actually damage the finish. Dust and debris can scratch the finish if you try to wipe it off. The sun can also damage the finish with its fading UV rays. Ice and snow add their own style of damage to your snowmobile. So, having a snowmobile cover on when not riding will help to maintain the great look of your machine.

You can find good quality covers that best suit your machine. Most snowmobile covers come in 4 small sizes (up to 100 inches), medium (up to 115 inches), large (up to 130 inches), and X-large (up to 145 inches). Choice the best one that is tight fit for your snowmobile.

Look for a snowmobile cover that features a heavy, extremely durable fabric that is treated during the manufacturing process to help weatherproof the fabric for maximum water resistance and repellency. An extra soft non-scratch hood liner is needed to protect your snowmobile’s paint job. The snowmobile cover should have a mildew resistant fabric that also protects against rain, snow, ice, dirt, dust and harmful UV rays.

You should look for the snowmobile storage/cover that will stay on and resist the wind while trailing your craft. Your cover should have a strong elastic hem cord around the bottom to help ensure a tight fit. Also include a built in trailering system with down straps with quick release buckles to keep your snowmobile cover secure. Some of the added features should be rear air vents to help to reduce inside moisture and wind lofting; a fuel tank access door, reflective rear safety markings and a free sew-in storage bag.
