Can anyone recommend a cover for two bikes being transported on the back of our motorhome? A lot that are advertised don't seem to get very good reviews. Thanks

They can all tear if not bound up tight. Oxford motorcycle covers are the thickest, and cost most.

We have a Fiamma 2 bike cover, it keeps the bikes clean, and we've used it for years. It's a bit baggy and flappy, and it has built in bungy hooks which just hook on where ever they touch, but we've never had any problem with it. Do remember that it might mask your reversing camera.

We have fiamma 2 bike cover and as previous poster said, it is baggy on our folded down electric bikes, so we add additional bungies to stop too much flapping.

we also remove saddles and batteries and carry them in the van, and use 3 bike locks to ensure they dont disappear in middle of night.

We have 2 electric bikes and bought a Taylormade cover.
A substantial piece of kit made of far stronger material than the ones previously mentioned.
We added extra grommets we got at the yacht chandlery along the bottom so that we could tie it still tighter, but even without our mod it is a really good well made cover.
