I'm looking for an outdoor car cover that is tough and rain proof. I have found one Budge Protector V Car Cover but i have been burned before by slick sounding sales pitch. What do you all think of this one and what would you all recommend?

I have had good luck with Covercraft, they can be a little pricey but I think you get what you pay for. How often/long with the car be covered and outside? Also, is it in direct sun light or direct weather? that may also need to factor in to your decision. Good Luck!

A 100% water-proof car cover can still trap moisture underneath it, and any long term parking over concrete, gravel or ground outside with a cover on it is going to result in lots of condensation underneath. You need a breathable cover, and if it's parked for any length of time, put a vapor barrier underneath it.

California Car Covers sells some nice covers but I would not cover any car long term out in the weather. To do so would be asking for trouble.

I used an Armor 400 car cover on my 2000 Grand Prix when I was parking it outside (3 years). Size chart is excellent and the cover I got fit the car very well. From January thru March I don't use the car at all so it was always covered those 3 months. Never had an issue. You'll want to get a cable lock kit and JC Whitney sells a product called "Gust Guard" so the cover won't blow away in the wind. I have the car in a garage now which is the only reason I stopped using the cover. I'll try to post a picture of the box for the cover. I've had trouble posting pictures here. But hopefully you'll be able to see it. Sorry about the foreign language, that's how I put the box on the shelf. Just kinda tossed it up there! Haha. HTH. -Jim
