Bass Pro Shops WeatherSafe Travel Tite Heavy-Duty Trailerable Boat Covers
Not worth it
My wife purchased this cover for them when we drove to phoenix for xmas. I started using the cover in May when the weather got good and my boat out of storage. First of all the fit was not good. We checked the box, the internet and Bass Pro Shops to make sure we did not mess up....... We didn't. Neither the length nor the beam fit. By mid July 3 months of use the straps woven into the cover had dry rotted and started falling off. The sinch down straps started to tare off the cover as well.
I seriously doubt this will last 2 more months. We paid almost $200 dollars at the time and that was on sale. I have had better luck out of $99.00 covers. This was supposed to last at least 4 years. Not likely.

Straps Rot After Several Months
I purchased this cover on August 30, 2011 and it fit my Tracker 175 just fine. The cover itself seems sturdy and up to the task but the tiedown straps turn to powder in just a few months. Without the tiedown straps the cover is useless! To BPS's credit they have replaced my original purchase on October 4, 2012 and again on July 13, 2013. The cover comes with a six year limited warranty. If they would simply replace the material of the straps with a high quality canvas or other material I think it would work for years. I live in Florida by the way and my boat is outside in both the rain and the heat. This cover works great if the straps would simply last.

I'm done with BP products
I purchased this for my 18.5 procraft bass boat. I should have listened to everyone else on this thread and never bothered with this purchase. Whoever measured these covers for bass boats do not have a clue what they are doing and neither does the manufacture. My boat is 18'6". I purchase the cover that was for 19' and it was to short when fitting or the pedestal seats. I exchanged it for the next size up and that was too big. To make matters worse, the cover that I exchanged it for was full of dirt, grease and leaves. This will be the nail in the coffin for purchasing BP products; they just don't last or fit as well as other vendor products for a similar price.

Worst Purchase Ever-For the Second Time
This will be the second cover of this make that I'll be returning. The re-enforced corners for the transom are only about 2 feet apart and not wide enough to reach both corners for adequate protection. The trolling motor pocket also doesn't cover the motor and the wind shield strip sits well to the rear of the wind screen. I originally thought someone may have switched the covers at the store with my first purchase so I returned it to the store. Tried to put the second one on tonight and it has the same problem. It looks like this is design flaw. I have a 2003 Tracker Pro Team 185 and bought the 17-19 foot cover. My original cover that came with boat fit perfect. I'll be returning this one as well and checking with the Tracker rep at the store to see about getting an original cover.
