Covering bike and trailer.
As I've stated in previous threads I'm going to start touring next spring. I've asked questions and have received good informations and advice. But now I have some more questions.
This has to do with covering my bike and trailer at night to keep rain off. First of all I ride a recumbent. The seat on it is foam. If it gets wet it will act like a sponge. Second I don't think it is a good idea to let the components to get wet from potential rain either. So I will be covering at least the bike with a 10' x 10' tarp.
But what about covering the trailer? It is a B.O.B. Yak Plus trailer. The bag, when not on the trailer will be inside the tent with me. But aside from the hub of the trailer are there any vital areas that should not get wet? Like the pivot point? Is it a good idea to cover the trailer as well? Or is there no need?
If it is I'll need a longer or at least a wider tarp.
