Bicycle cover

Does anyone know of a Quality bicycle cover that will cover two bikes on the back of a fifth wheel without being tore apart while traveling down the road

I use this TeamObsidian ripstop cover for 2 bikes on my fifth wheel trailer. Secure with bungee cords.

We have used these Formosa covers from Amazon and they are wicked tough and have many straps and clips to help hold them tight. They also zip at each end to make them easier to put on and remove. Wood definitely buy them again if needed. Fair warning, they are not cheap.

I cover my bikes with an outdoor grill cover. They are a strong, rip resistant material and it takes time for the sun's rays to damage them. I use a bungie net to keep the cover in place while driving.

I picked up a pretty good scooter cover at wally world. It is likely big enough for a couple bikes. Or they may have dedicated bike covers.

We just got one of these for our 2 bikes and it seems quite stout.

We had a Swagman bike bag and liked it since it totally encloses the bikes, but it was a tight fit and I had to loosen and move the handlebars to get it to cover our 2 bikes.

The Formosa covers the bottom too al-be-it a bit different than the Swagman but it looks like it will be OK.

I had the same concern about blocking my tail lights. Although I don’t think they’re completely obstructed. It would be great if they had a third brake light installed.

I bought a large canvas barbeque grill cover for mine and use bungees to secure it!

I ordered a double bike cover in February and have driven 3,000 miles with it so far and no issues.
Under $20
The only thing is that I added a few nylon straps to hold it in place while travelling.

Amazon.com - "Aiskaer Bicycle Cover with lock hole reflective safety loops for 29" mountain
bike. Heavy duty ripstop material.

We have same cover as DutchStarJez. Very study and we like that you can see the turn signals and brake lights through the clear material. As far as licence plates we have not had anyone stop us to check our plates. I go slow enough that police pass us up on the highway.

We have 2 e-bikes living on the back of our MH. Tried a couple of covers and was never happy, seems the bikes got dirtier and nasty from road grime especially on a rainy day then without the covers. They have been uncovered for almost a year now with no issues.
My real reason for wanting to cover them is to keep them out of view or at least make them look more difficult to steal.

Gave some thought to using a single cover on each bike to prevent the gaping opening at the bottom, but never got around to trying it. Any suggestions to fix it are welcome.

Rtaggio the bike cover I use fits our bikes very well. My ebike is an XL and my wife’s is a large frame. That cover is bigger and we use the straps to tighten up the cover around the bikes. I use the cover when we might be travelling on raining days.
