Snowdog Cover??
« on: Aug 11, 2021, 06:29 PM »
I finaly bought a new Snowdog this last weekend!  Super excited for the upcoming ice season.  My main concern is a cover for it as it will be on a open trailer.  What does everyone use?  I have heard just to use a BBQ cover but is this the best option?  Thanks for all the help!

I don't have a Snowdog but it makes sense that a BBQ cover would work great. They aren't that expensive and they are usually padded/insulated a bit which would be a bonus. Other than that I imagine it would work just fine to lay a tarp down and drive over the front half, then fold the back half over towards the rear of the 'Dog. Plenty of straps and should be good to go! But if it were me, I'd probably be looking for a BBQ cover!

Add some grommets and a couple bungees/straps you will be golden ..BBQ covers should be going on sale/clearance soon.

Just got my new dog yesterday, can’t wait for ice. They now have factory covers new this year, $75 for the standard cover. I ordered mine already as I will also have in open trailer

Im picking up a new sport this week. I would like to buy the snowdog cover but I want to protect the lower part also. Doesn’t look like the snowdog cover will do that. I will be using a hitch cargo carrier for transport. I want full coverage and easy on and off. Not sure that will be possible.

Picked up my sport yesterday. My dealer is ordering me that cover but not sure if it’ll work or not with the hand guards on the new sport

I took the hand guards off. I want to be able to transport it on the receiver cargo hauler with the sled upside down on top of the snow dog. Sled fits on top perfect without the hand guards.

I decided on this cover.  It also acts as my storage shed for the dog and the other three sleds.   ;D

Is it ice yet?

I finally got my new snow dog out last weekend, hauled on an open trailer with the factory cover, cover fit great, nice and snug. Kept the dog clean and dry. Highly recommend the factory cover.
