Can-Am ATV covers for protection on open trailer

I recently went from an enclosed trailer to a small flatbed for pulling our ATVs. I regularly pull them long distances and was planning to order a couple of Can-Am covers for protection during transport. However, someone recently told me that an ATV cover will scratch the ATV significantly if used for this purposes (wind and associated friction I suppose). Does anyone in this forum have experience with this one way or the other? Your advice would be much appreciated.
