    Default ATV storage cover recommendation

    I'm looking for a recommendation for a storage cover for my ATV. Starting this year I will be keeping it under my deck at my cottage during the spring, summer and fall. In this location it will already be shielded from the sun and somewhat from the rain and wind. I just need something to keep the drips and dust off of it and to keep it covered so that passerbys won't be able to see it easily (must be black). The ATV will be stored on a dirt floor which looks like it might be fairly damp, so I need a cover that is breathable. I have an older machine, so I am not looking to spend a fortune on the cover.

    What would you recommend?

    The covers for these new BBQs should almost big enough to cover an ATV...should check the measurements.

    I just use $4 Brown/green tarps for TSC..they last 2-3 yrs.

    Princess Auto is a good place for tarps / covers.
    Cabelas as well.
    I have a custom fitted cover for my UTV but just throw a plain tarp on my garden tractor also parked under the deck similar to what you describe.
    No issues over the years. If you make it too comfy the rodents will settle right in. Another headache....lol

    Would one of the small portable garages fit under your deck? The ones sized for an ATV?

    I was considering just a tarp, but I am concerned about the breathability and also the hassle of trying to secure it. ATV covers usually have an elastic at the bottom to keep them in place. I'm not sure if one of the portable tent structures would fit, but I doubt it. There is a bit of a slope too, so it might look strange.

    I bought a cover from Canadian tire called a Tripel premium for around $140 not cheap but it's held up amazingly well, it has tie downs for highway towing as well as vents. I've been storing my ATV beside my house not really protected from the sun for about 3 years, the cover is a bit faded but still not damaged. The cheap princess auto camo ones that come on sale all the time are good for maybe a year if they don't see too much wind.

    I just bought one for mine off Amazon for 28$. It was the best rated one and fits my machine. I wouldnt say it top notch material that will withstand sun for long time but it will shield it from the elements....what I bought it for.

    I bought a heavy duty one from Cabelas a few years ago and it is holding up really well.

    Canadian Tire usually has them on sale this time of year. They work well. Keep an eye out for mice eating your wiring and seats when storing out doors.

    The cheap princess auto covers work well and they sell them in black.
