Any recommendations for a cover that will stand up to going down the road on a trailer?

That’s a good question, but before I answer, I have one for you... do you care about the finish of the bikes panels? I’m assuming your answer is a resounding YES! Then I suggest you first find the softest microfiber sheet to cover the bike with, after you’ve cleaned it. Then fit the tightest cover you can afford, and further covered with a tarp if it’s gonna get wet. Yep, multiple layers. I made the mistake years ago with just putting a tarp over the bike and the wind ripped the tarp like mad, scratching up the panels and windscreen. I didn’t make that mistake again.

The next best thing to @Dingo 's suggestion is no cover at all. Flapping tarps and paint don't go well together.

Thanks to you both, I had considered each of the options mentioned.
Guess it's no cover, I was leaning towards that anyway. Considering the AWS can't really be buffed out if it gets blemished. It's not as if it's difficult to clean. Thanks again.

Option 4, in the future will be a toy hauler travel trailer.
No joke, I was dreaming, looking at some enclosed trailers and came across some toy haulers. It's not too far fetched to just save up for a toy hauler if you plan on overnight track excursions. They're expensive sure, but in terms of relative cost, some of the cheaper toy haulers cost about 2-2.5x the cost of a comparable enclosed one and just provide so much convenience/value (assuming you have something that can haul the weight).
