What car cover do you recommend

I want one primarily for when I travel. I would like to cover it if outside at night. I have a California cover for my corvette but I don't think it would be good in rain. What do you guys and gals like.

Mike's cover

I got the light weight exterior cover from Mike. I use it in the garage but also I got the carry bag and lock with it. On and off, folds in the bag easily. On a trip or Rally, I follow Mike's method, use a California Duster to remove dust, cover SSR, next morning, no washing and have a clean truck of the activities.

I also use his method of removing the cover.
1.Pull front edge of cover to the top of the windshield.
2.Pull back edge of cover to the top of the windshield. You now have a clean surface to fold the rest the cover onto.
3. Fold the front and rear until you have the cover folded to about 18" wide.
4. From the driver's side start pulling and folding the cover until you have the cover completely folded, now it fits easily in to the carry bag.
5. To install, start at the driver's side and reverse the procedure.

Will the light outdoor and indoor cover be ok if it rains. I suppose I need to remove it every morning, right.

This is a great idea!!! Take your best lady with you, it just might change your life and you will get a lot of your question you have & more, Plus you get to see 30-40 SSR's all together, that's a sight in it's own but you can check out the other person's idea's.
Take your camera!
Read the first 8 or so posts and you will have the info you'll need to catch up with them, sorry can't seem drag the link but this is the thread to look for.

I know if you're going to drive it you definitely have to remove it!

Sorry can not help you on cover, I have just an indoors & don't use a cover outside.

Light weight outdoor & indoor.

The light weight (Compact) outdoor is an all weather cover. It is light weight so that it can be easily installed, removed and folded into carrying bag. At first I was not using it in the garage, but because it is so easy in install I use it all the time now.

"CoverKing Stormproof SSR Cover. This the most water resistant compact cover offered. Includes embroidered BowTie and SSR logo on front of cover. Red, Yellow, Black are stocked."
