Cover for towing

My crawler just has a cage and no top. But, I’d like to keep blasts of rain from getting into it. Do y’all put covers on your rigs while you’re towing? I found Rain Gear Covers but doesn’t look like I could tow with it.

I guess I could just use a tarp and strap it down. Just looking for other options.

It's called an enclosed trailer. Towing with any sort of cover will quickly remove the paint from any surface the cover touches.

A buddy of mine had good luck with a tarp and some bungee cords on his CJ.

Since we're making puns, I thought frogs like the rain?

I have awesome PVC clamps for 1.75" tubing but haven't tried them towing, but with a legit tarp they will work awesome. They hold up 6" of snow no problem

PM me your address. I'll send you some for testing, will be selling them here with a fancy yellow star soon.

All it will cost you is a picture and an honest review.

Hostyle makes some nice covers. But if Cody's using them. I'd be afraid of what they cost.
