Need Advice On Trailering

I'm trailering my 930 8hr's on the highway in winter. Not sure if it is better to put a car cover on (worried about rubbing in wind) or leave it off (worried about rocks).
Whats the best way to go on an open trailer? Thanks

No cover. That'll be far worse than exposure to the elements.

Hi, I suggest no cover. The cover will rub in the wind and the potential of loosing the cover on the open road, this could be really bad!

Get some good low-tack 3m masking tape and put it on all the vulnerable forward-facing surfaces. Lots of people do this for track days. It'll go on fast, protect your paint, then come right off with no drama.

I would suggest taping your windshield also. Sand on the road can sand blast everything including the glass! I know this from experience.
