Any idea how these fit over a rig without a windshield or roof? I have a family cage on my 40, and would love something like this for the trip to texas (both the drive and in case it rains while we are there).

Mace I'm not sure. Let me get through next week and I'll talk with them. Might be able to do custom covers. I have a MT family cage on my cruiser so they could use it as a mockup.

Could you leave one on while doing 80 down the freeway? If it was strapped down well of course.

Thanks amigo!

Did you figure out whether or not this would fit over a MT family cage with the windshield up? Also, as Mace asked above, anyone tested out trailering a rig with this cover on it?

Thanks,
JT

I'll have all three models at GSMTR. Maybe some other stuff as well

Hey Marshall,
Know you are probably already headed out to GSMTR, but interested to hear a response on trailering one of these puppies. Also, on the family cage model, have you had one out in the rain yet? Just wondering if it sheds water pretty well instead of collecting between the spreaders.

Hey Marshall,
How did the tow go? Also back to Ramons question how well does it keep water from ponding?

Long story but the short of it. I didn't get to tow it. Trailer just couldn't handle two trucks. So I drove the 40 all the way to GSMTR. So no testing.

The material will hold out water. But if you don't have a Bikini over your roll cage or have it really strapped down it's going to pond. There is no way around that. Will it leak if it ponds. Mine hasn't but the most ponding I've gotten is an inch of water.

The material isn't cheap. It's really tough. If one of you wants to be the test dummy on trailering with one and buy it and if it fails I'll refund your money.

I'm down for that Marshall - however, my tub is off right now and I won't be towing until Julyish.

Not yet but I have found out if it rubs the paint it's going to remove it. Meaning you drive with it on it's going to rub the finish off it. There just isn't any way around it. I'd have to sew another layer of something crazy soft inside it and even then it would still rub the finish off. Think of this cover as something you use when not moving. Like you want to protect your soft top from the elements, or keeping the rain out of the cruiser while it's outside. I use mine all the time when I get home and when I wake up in the morning after a storm or when there is dew everywhere I just take it off and it's all dry inside. Plus it keeps prying eyes from my stuff inside. Takes a whopping 30 seconds to install.

Hmmm. I'll likely still get one, but that's a bummer. Tough scenario to come up with a solution to. I really want something like this I can use for a summer wheeling trip and if I'm towing or at the campground, I have something to keep the inside dry. Thanks for the info Marshall - order incoming if I ever get this thing back together and on the road :D

Thanks Marshall for the update. Like mtweller, I really want one that you can haul with but I understand the issues. I will keep yours in mind as it looks like one of the best options out there.
