Finally set up the raft for the summer (yeah... I know... I'm a bit late to the game).
I want to keep it covered when sitting on my property on the trailer on its day's off. I popped it on the trailer and i read a few threads about covers for the rafts. Some folks said use tarps, of which I have tried, but they tear pretty easily. I even bought the heavy duty ones from Big-R (pricey) and they tear... I practically cried when my $70 tarp shredded after a few tugs to tie it down.
So I was thinking about getting one of these:
Pop Up Camper Covers Cover Fits 13' to 14' | National Discount RV Covers
Anyone use one of those for a 14ft raft with oarlocks on and frame for covering for UV protection for the summers? It looks like it would work and is big enough, but wanted to get input from other people if they have done this and if it works. It also looks big anough to cover the trailers during the winter when I put my baby to bed for the season. I just want something that will last a few years... but don't want something that will break the bank.
Also, any additional ideas for covering it and keeping it out of the sun for UV protection would be great (no keep it in the garage comments... it not possible). Im open to tarps if they can last at least 1-2 seasons... I'm guessing remove the oar locks...
