If you’re the owner of an ATV, you’re used to getting it dirty. Mud, rain, and whatever else is a common occurrence.

But what about keeping it stored safely? The elements have a way of beating things down, so a quality cover is important!

Thankfully, there are many great options for ATV owners that are looking to keep their ride safe and tidy when not in use.

Let’s take a look at the 4 Best ATV Covers:

1. Coleman MadDog GearAll Weather Protection ATV Cover

The Coleman MadDog cover is our top pick for general use, based on price and overall value. 

It’s a simple design, but the material is durable and it will keep your ATV safe from all the elements rain or shine. 

Measured at 133″ in length, with an elastic bottom. Because of this, it should fit nearly every ATV out there. A 1-year limited warranty is also included with the purchase of this product. 

Most who kept this outside every day reported the same occurrence. That is, the material will thin a bit at around the 2-year mark onward. If you are not keeping this in direct sunlight every day, it should last quite a bit longer.

If you live in an area with strong winds, the elastic will be strong enough not to get blown off, they didn’t cheap out on the material. 

Because this cover is great for medium to larger ATVs, if you have a smaller sized one then you may want to look into getting a smaller cover. We have a couple of great options below for that!

2. Badass Moto Ultimate ATV Cover Waterproof Heavy Duty 4 Wheeler Cover

The Badass Moto is on the higher end of the price bracket relative to other options in this guide. But, it comes with many happy customers.

It’s not a “one size fits all” option like the Coleman, but it still has elastic seams. They’ve instead made three size options for a tighter fit. 

This ranges from the small at 75″ to the large at 95″. There are also options for a camouflage cover. This is a heavy-duty option, that offers some features most don’t have. Like reflectors stitched into the design.

You can also access the tank without having to take off the entire cover due to a zipper opening. It has one of the best warranties in the category, at 3 years. This is more of a long term option for ATV owners, if you want something you’ll have for a long time. 

The fabric is polyester with a waterproof coating, that’s why it has a bit more weight to it. When not in use, they’ve included a storage bag to keep it in. This is a great buy for someone looking to spend a little bit more. 

3. Pilot Automotive CC-6224 Camouflage ATV Cover

Pilot Automotive has a budget cover for your ATV that comes in two colors, green or camo.

This is in the mid-range for pricing and they do have several sizing options for a tight fit. 

Although we like the sizing and design, a big knock on this option is that some customers have reported issues with water getting in within a year. Or it being susceptible to water damage over time. For those reasons, we can’t recommend this over the other options in this guide. 

If you’re looking for a more affordable option that is waterproof, we recommend the XYZCTEM below. 

4. XYZCTEM Waterproof ATV Cover

This waterproof ATV cover is another budget option in this category. 

If you’re looking for a solution to cover you through rain or shine while saving some money, then this is it. 

Suitable for ATVs up to 103″ in length. If you’re planning on using this to transport your vehicle, we kindly suggest looking at other options in this guide. It doesn’t seem to do too well in the wind!

But, for preventing the elements at getting at your ride while in a storage environment then it will work perfectly. They have included a storage bag when not in use. 

FAQS

How long do ATV covers generally last?

That’s a hard question to answer depending on your use. If you keep it in direct sunlight and exposed without any shelter, your cover will wear down much faster than something that has partial protection.

By nature, a cover is fabric and has some sort of elasticity. These are susceptible to the elements unless you want a heavy tarp. For the models we looked at you can expect between 2-4 years of use. But it could be less, or much more depending on the way YOU keep your ATV. 

I’m keeping my ATV covered in the winter, what else should I do to keep it in good condition?

Besides keeping it covered(a must if exposed), we have two other recommendations. One, is adding a fuel stabilizer so your gas doesn’t go bad when left unused. Two, is to get a trickle charger to save your battery life.
