Covers Keep Trailers Looking Like New
The company's universal-fit and custom-fit models are designed for both horse trailers and stock/utility trailers.
"Trailers often sit idle for months, exposed to the elements. Especially harmful are the sun's ultraviolet rays that can cause paint and exterior surfaces to deteriorate rapidly," the company says. "Using a trailer cover cuts down on cleaning and maintenance as well as increases the resale value when you are ready to sell."
Beverly Bay's universal-fit cover comes in four sizes to fit trailers 8 to 16 ft. in length (excluding the hitch). They're made out of polypropylene and Aqua-shed fabric and start at $129 plus S&H. Features include: a passenger-side zipper door that allows access during storage, heavily reinforced rear corners to resist tears and snags, strap and buckle attachments to secure the cover, and tie-down systems at both ends to contain excess fabric (in case your trailer is slightly shorter than the cover). Comes with a 2-year warranty.
If your trailer is longer than 16 ft., or if you plan on owning it for a long time, Beverly Bay's custom covers are available in three fabric types (samples are available), and come with a zipper door located wherever you want. Custom-fit covers provide better protection than universal covers because they follow the exact contours of the trailer.
The "3-Layer Aqua-Shed" model is ideal for wet climates, as it is made from triple-layer polypropylene. This one comes with a 3-year warranty and the material costs $18 per trailer foot. It comes in gray only.
The "Tyvek by Dupont" model is suited for sunny or snowy climates and has a 4-year warranty. The fabric costs $24.99 per trailer foot. It comes in white only.
Their "Sunbrella" custom fit model is ideal for all climates, has a 5-year warranty, and costs $29.99 per trailer foot. It comes in either tan or gray.
Price quotes for custom covers are also supplied at no cost. A 50 percent deposit is needed to order. Orders are filled in about 2 1/2 weeks.
Beverly Bay Inc., also makes covers for trucks, cars, motorcycles, golf carts, ATV's, windshield covers (for towing), and awning screens.
