Outdoor Car Cover

does anyone have any good recommendations for a decent New England winter capable outdoor car cover for the XR? Need not be XR specific. Now that my XR is running great, it may get the boot to the driveway this winter so I can have some elbow room to lose my $#!* when I try and split the body/frame on my Thing and break all the bolts :D

Russ at Rapido Group has some XR-specific ones, I believe:

Walmart's top line car cover at around $80 last time I looked is made of Tyvek, is UV resistant, and easily holds up for 5 years and more, depending...

YMMV

I got a sierra one online pretty cheap. Think it was 50 bucks or so. Some online clearance website with cover 60-80% off. I will try to find the name of the site and post it.

Wolf is what Rapido sells (or at least did several yrs ago), and these are a fraction of Russ' price (I'd typically say support our vendors, but the difference is about $290).

Duh. The one worth buying at $65 shipped is made of NOAH fabric by Kimberly-Clark.

They keep adding to the 172-41046; I bought the last one the other day, and wanted a 2nd and settled on a lesser quality one for use in my garage......dammit.

The first batch came out of (....can't recall city/state); the recent one came out of Oklahoma. Different sellers also although each using Covercraft in their screen names.

YMMV

For anyone wondering, here is what the Wolf Noah custom cover #172-41046 looks like on my 88. Mine had some weird yellow stains on it in the shape of an alien, probably from storage.
