So, I found out that my deployment I'm about to head out on just got bumped up 2 weeks. I don't have anyone/anywhere to store my car for the next couple months, other than the parking lot at my dorms on base. I do have someone to go start her every once in a while and take her around the parking lot. I want to get a good car cover for her, but I'm in a hurry. I'll probably have to order it by Monday to get it in time. What cover's are you guys using?

Thanks!

are you going to get ice, rain and freezing temps? If so, I wouldn't cover it. The water can get under the cover and freeze the cover to car.

I'm down in Oklahoma City. I was only here for half the winter last year and other than freezing temps I don't recall much ice, maybe a little.

Any more votes for just leaving it uncovered for the winter?

California Car Cover , Superweave •Ultimate Outdoor Protection •Blocks 99% of Ultraviolet Rays •Small Enough to Be Cleaned at Home •4 Year Warranty

Lightweight, leaves no marks, water beads up, runs right off. After a nights worth of rain, the cover dries in a 1/2 hour. It's the best cover I found for my needs. The warranty works great, I found a small tear in one of the covers I had, the company said, send a check for $14 bucks to cover shipping, and they sent me a whole new cover. They said they would do the same if it happend again for the length of the warranty. They stand behind their product.

I tried one cover, it was blue, had Kimberly-Clark 4 layer, can't remember the name, When it was new, was waterproof, water would bead up, after 6 months, wasn't as waterproof, would just absorb the water and become a wet cover that took hours to dry. It left marks on the paint, was a heavy cover, only lasted two years, then started to rip in verious places, very disappointed, was supposed to be the best cover made. The intence Florida sun was to much for it.

Good luck on your search

Superweave from Cal Car Covers is the ONLY cover I buy after trying them all. Car uncovered is exactly as I left it even after setting out all winter. I had one on 3 different cars. Like he said above all the others left the car dirtier and wetter than if I covered it with beach towels. They fold up and fit in a briefcase too.
