Car covers
« on: November 30, 2019, 09:41:27 PM »
Be thinking about one for a while but was told not to bother as they can scratch the car and trap moisture under the cover.Has I understand it the breathable covers dont get moisture under the cover and are very good..who has one and reccomend any

Hi Andy have one for a year and I'm delighted with it mainly use it during the summer keeps the hot sun off the red paint which fades in prolonged sunshine... Used in during the winter months and never had any moisture issues with it and boy do we get rain here in Ireland ... Had to remove it when the wind picked up quite a bit though.
It's heavy and well put together it's made from layers of breathable fabric and is completely waterproof this ain't your argos type of cover
I haven't noticed any scratches to the paint work... I always washed and dried the car before I put the cover on... Its not cheap but it's a quality cover

For outside use I wouldn't bother as I've heard some horror stories regarding the problems you've mentioned.
