What do you like? Looking at a fitted one on Pelican, which is $300-ish. Seems a little steep.

TIA

Not knowing the circumstances for your question I may offer this alternative to an outside cover. If you have the room and can put up with the aesthetics, plus live in a relatively mild wind area, you may want to consider a "portable garage" as offered by numerous places like Harbor Freight. That will work to keep the elements off of the car and you can add a light breathable car cover to keep the dust off. Total investment will probably be less than $300.00 and you won't have to worry about the finish getting messed up.

Rasta, take a look at the CoverKing SilverGuard Plus.

Plus Pelican has 17% off right now: "COVER17"

It has fleece on the inside, and has an aluminized outer coating to reflect infrared and ultraviolet when used outdoors. Fitted to car body shape and with pockets for mirrors.

It's also semi-permeable so water & condensation doesn't get trapped under it.

I have been using Silverguard plus covers for 20 years now.

They are the only one I have found that lasts more than 1 year in the AZ sun.

Great tip, especially the sale situation. Ordered.
