    Need a cover 21xrd

    What is a good inexpensive cover i can buy to put on my 21xrd? I have a open pole barn that it is housed in out of the weather, but this time of year the pollen turns my blue and silver boat green. Is national covers, or carver covers a economic cover is one better than the other. Remember mostly a dust cover, never really plan to trailer with it. But would be nice if i was going fishing on a rainy day to be able to trailer with it.

    AV Is it canvas, or is it like a sunbrella type material, How does it fit? do it rub the boat when trailering. Is it the 800+ dollar custom cover offered on the Bullet store?

    It's sunbrella type with a ratchet on both sides rear, it fits right under the rub rail tight , it is a mooring type cover it has two poles to keep water from sitting on it. I would never tow with a cover so I can't answer that I learned my lesson twice with aurora covers that chafed up my gell on my old boat. I really like that it's light weight and easy to deal with I have not used the poles tho I do have to remove my graph at the console for it to fit, the aurora cover first thing in the morning in a motel parking lot would be soaked over night heavy as shit get my legs wet trying to stuff it in a garbage bag .
    No straps to the trailer at all , I doubt it would fall off towing the strap is beefy but I wouldn't tow with it.

    I have 21XRD......use the Aurora.....its a tank and built very well but will scratch gelcoat/motor/windshield if you tow......it's also an art to get it on each time and not have a low spot that collects water

    The cover that Bullet sells for something like $350 works fine. I have never towed with it, so I can't speak to that, but it does just fine for keeping dust and dirt and water (to an extent) out of the boat.

    For what you are looking for, a cover to just keep it clean, Empire Covers makes several different "models" of covers. Anywhere fro $100 - $300 depending on what you want and how much you want to spend. I have a cheaper one just to keep it clean....but I also have one from Bullet with the Big Logo.
