daggo66 That was back in October! I forgot all about it. I will try to remember to try that when it warms up again. I forgot all about it a couple of weeks ago when I had the top down.

You see, it would be this mat that you would put on the floor... and would have different CONCLUSIONS written on it that you could JUMP TO.

I remember that thread. Until then I swore mine would never go back in the bag, but after reading that I got it to fit.

I agree. I don't even use my storage bag. I just fold it up and throw it in the back. It's way easier that way.

New2012JEEP Ahh, thanks for letting me know everyone. Okay, so I have molded a tarp medium duty tarp to the shape of basically the trail cover...BUT...It will not fold easy, and even if I can get it folded down, it is huge! It takes up the Plano XXL completely. I am going to guess that the BT Trail cover can actually make it self smaller than a used tarp. I guess I am getting one if it is supposed* to fit in that bag it comes with.

JDsDream I use the trail cover everyday from March to November. I've only attempted to get it back in the bag once. It is usually rolled up and laying in the back of my Jeep against the rear gate.

daggo66 I used it all the time at my townhouse. It was on during some storms and kept the inside bone dry. You do have to push the water off the top though. Now that I have a garage I don't use it any more.

I'm going to get a duffle bag to throw it in easier along with other things like soft top boot, spider shade, etc.

sinepome last summer i removed my top, installed a bikini top, and used a tarp over seats when it was going to rain. all in an apartment complex. i guess thievery isn't as big of a deal here as in other places though. i will be getting a trail cover this year and retire the ole tarp.(6x8 if anyone needs a cheap topless alternative.)

Casotakar1229 interested in this too. I am trying to find alternatives to putting my top down and back up every night since I don't have a garage...I kind of just want to remove the top all together. curse you apartment style living...

Trail Covers

How easy is the Bestop 2 Door trail cover to put in that storage bag?

Would it be a pita to use every night?

Any other options on brands, I am kind of off to Bestop at this point in time...
