Car Covers for your Car, Truck, Van, SUV, Pickup Truck, Trailer, Snowmobile or Motorcycle
Protect your vehicle from bird droppings, sticky tree sap, rain, sunlight fading, and weather.
Protection is better than cure.
Your car may benefit from protection from sticky tree sap, bird droppings, industrial pollutants, acid rain, sunlight fading, and more.
I've found a couple of web sources for protective "car covers" for pretty much everything, ranging from cars and motorcycles to large vans, jeeps, and even trailers, campers, and snowmobiles.
A "car cover" sounds like a simple thing. But these protective weather-proof covers come in a large variety of "design approaches" and materials:
Different manufacturers offer many different combinations of car-cover features: Click below to get a good overview of what's available:
Totally waterproof, or "breathable."
Polypropylene, or proprietary materials: "Technalon," "Evolution," etc.
Simple dust covers -- significantly cheaper, for use in a garage. Probably not good long-term protection from sticky tree sap or corrosive bird droppings.
Padded -- protects against dings and nicks in your car's paint.
Covers formulated specifically for UV-blocking (Ultraviolet Light).
Rot and mildew proof covers for damp or humid environments.
Highly-reflective covers to reflect the sun's heat.
Multiple-layer composite systems for both breathability and water resistance.
And more: Securing grommets, hemming type (elastic or not), cable locks and cable-lock kits...
