Outdoor Weather Proof Truck Cover.

No sure if I'm posting this in the right section so feel free to redirect me.

I've been fortunate enough to winter store my truck for the last 3 yrs in a heated underground garage but have to move it out do to construction work that will last for a long time.

Looking for a really good cover that will protect it from rain, snow and ice (southern Ontario, Canada) any feed back on this one would be appreciated.

Covers aren't a bad alternative if you have the discipline to use it daily. We never have enough garage space, so something usually gets designated to one of those <$1000 carports. If you rent, then a cover will suffice; until you get fat and lazy.

I like it but my neighbors' would go bananas looking at one of those half Zebra, half lobster.

How about this one, is it all BS?

I have always ordered mine from California car covers......IMHo, one of the ways to ensure success and longitivity of the cover is to make sure it is covers out of direct sunlight...like under a car port ..if none is available, then the purchase of a poly tarp, one tht can be placed over the cover and secured works well....but I would not recommend for a daily dirver just because the constant removal really increases the possibility of lite marks on the paint cause from contaminents.

I've been a big fan of http://www.covercraft.com for a long time.
They make about 10 different type of outdoor fabrics for a reason.
I'd check with them on the the best fabric for "rain, snow and ice".

Here in Sunny South Florida I use the Weathershield HD
but that may not be the best fabric choice for you.
We have rain, we don't have snow, and the only ice is in our drink.

I ended up purchasing the Covercraft Noah and it has protected the truck through 2 harsh winters better than my high expectations. I recall pulling the cover off for the first time early last summer and the truck was so dry and spotless it didn't even need to be washed, highly recommend it.

My buddy had a similar issue, not with a truck, but with a car.

I got this crazy idea to build a box. Yes a box.

I made it out of marine grade plywood, treated 4x4s, 2x4s, etc. Very simple design. Just drove the car in and out while his poll barn was being added on to. Hated to tear it down, because it worked so well, but his wife wouldn't let him keep it.
