    Anyone bought taylormade cycle covers for the cycle rack on a motorhome.
    Our fiamma cover has split in various places and is no longer waterproof.
    I have heard of covers that you can get that completely covers the rack and the bikes.
    We have 2 electric bikes that we need to keep covered from the worst of the rain and also to keep them covered for security.

    Hi, yes we have Taylor made covers for our 2 Electric Bikes, have had it for 6 years, a little faded now but still does the job as good as when we bought it.
    It is surprising how many people come up when we are on site and take down the telephone number for them of the back of the cover when they see how good they work.

    I have had several bags and a large bike cover made by

    http://www.sewnsos.co.uk/2010/

    who will make anything to your measurements quickly and at an excellent price. The material they use is heavy duty and the bike cover was originally made to cover two bikes on an Omni-Lift bike rack with a velcro'd cut out for the rack arms.

    When we changed to Dahon folding bikes. the bike cover was large enough and strong enough to cover our Piaggio Liberty scooter. Superb quality woven material, very strong zips and webbing straps and a very prompt response to my questions.

    Just had a bag made for a Weber gas BBQ and bags for the folding bikes, 3 days from measurement to delivery. Top firm.

    Have a look in our local phone book for 'sail makers' - They will rattle you up a cover, that will last many a year, if not life - and more than likely be cheaper than a shop bought one!!

    i was in poundland burnley today and they had cycle covers in there, it did say waterproof etc on them, so if you have one near to you it might be worth a look
