Car cover opinions?

I'm due for a new cover....$250 - $350. https://www.pelicanparts.com/catalog/coverking/cover_start.htm

Anyone use the above and how would you compare them to an Amazon special at 79 bucks?

Be advised I live in CO and we get snow, rain and sleet...

Are you saying you are going to leave the cover on all the time outdoors? I see a host of options in your link.

I used to buy relatively inexpensive covers (custom made locally) that were flannel. Awesome, but did not last long in the sun.

The last cover I bought is made of Sunbrella. Expensive, but lasts for ever.

Leaving a cover on in wet conditions will ruin your paint. AHIK.

I bought a coverking from our host about 3 years ago. The cover has held up well, with the exception of the black fading to almost a gray color. My car sits outside cover in the south so fading is gonna happen. Overall happy with the cover, but seems pretty pricey for what it is.

I prefer the Covercraft covers myself. They are well built, have lots of options from colors to material and depending on model have longer warranty than the CoverKing models.

Iíve had a Covercraft WeatherShield HP on my S2000 for just shy of a year now. The cover still looks new even though it sits partially under a tree and out in the Texas sun. I do wash it every few months depending on if it rains. Iíve also been treating it every other wash or so with 303 Fabric guard which helps with the UV and waterproofing.

Car cover.

Another vote for Coverking.

In the fall of 2009, I purchased a genuine Porsche Silver Guard Plus cover for my 911SC with a tea tray tail part number PNA-508-930. When I initially inspected it the lock had Coverking markings so I believe they made the cover.

This cover was used outside in a carport for over six years before being moved inside a garage and is still in excellent shape.
