I tow 7 hours each way, two or more times each year. I've used the snap cover a few times but wasn't happy with the marks on the gelcoat and the front snaps don't like to stay down. I use covers for the tower speakers and board racks, and wrap the top tube of the tower in plastic to make bug cleanup easier. I leave my Z5 up and have had no problems.

I just returned from towing my Mobius from England to the South of France and back, 2 days of towing each way.
This was my second year of doing it, with no problems.
Last year we had a blow out on the trailer, luckily dual axle Boatmate trailer didn't even feel it.
This year i greased the bearings beforehand and took a spare wheel/tyre and a trolley jack.
Towed all the way there and back with the cover off, started towing with the cover on, but it almost wrecked the cover and the boat, plus it looked bad.
Towing with the cover off dried out the boat nicely.
Kept our speed at 55-60mph all the way.
Filled the boat with wakeboard bags, cider and wine, and the swim platform, put the tower down and stuck some foam between boat an tower to stop rubbing.
Made double sure we emptied all the ballast and used up all the fuel in the tank before towing.
