Car and Truck covers are available in Ready-Fit and Custom-Fit Patterns. And several different fabrics.
Ready-Fit or Custom-Fit? Which one is best for you?
covers could actually be called "semi-custom" since they are designed to provide a very good fit using incremental sizing and a hatchback silhouette without mirror pockets. While any of our almost 80,000 custom-patterned covers can be purchased by special order, you'll find Ready-Fit covers readily available in up to three different levels of protection.
Our ready-fit program uses Block-It® Series non-woven protection fabrics made by Kimberly-Clark in the U.S.A. Ready-Fit Covers are usually in-stock, ready to go. Why a Custom-Fit cover?
Ready-fit and semi-custom covers had been around quite a while before Covercraft identified the market potential, and began catering to enthusiasts who wanted a more "perfect fit" for the cover being used to protect their pride and joy. Back in the 60's (in the last millennium), the most popular covers we made were for British and European sports cars and they were called "mittens". Today, custom covers are made for everything from kit cars to motorhomes, and we process orders for custom, made-to-dimension patterns every day. Custom-fit covers are also available in many more materials than ready-fit covers
to allow you to select the one that will meet your vehicle's protection needs and budget. Custom-Fit Covers are made to order. Please allow 10-14 Days for delivery.COVER FABRICS - Which One is Right for You?
We offer a wide selection of fabrics
, to allow you to select the one that will meet your vehicle's protection needs and budget. Different fabrics offer different levels of protection performance, and some focus on protecting from a specific element, like intense sun exposure or dust. All Covercraft fabrics are "breathable"
to allow good air circulation under the cover. That's important because it assures that any moisture or condensation under the cover can easily evaporate, and it also reduces heat build-up on hot days. Remember, rain water (not acid rain) won't hurt a vehicle's finish; it's UV rays and pollutants in the air that cause the most damage to the exterior and interior finish. Use the charts below
to help identify which fabric is best suited for the protection needs you require.
You'll find good, basic protection is provided by the Multibond® / Block-it® 200 Series fabric, while NOAH® and WeatherShield® are more expensive and provide excellent all-weather protection. For paint protection from dust and dirt during indoor storage, consider tan flannel or Dustop®. If a cover is being used in an extreme sun environment, Sunbrella® or our new WeatherShield® HD may be the best cover to use. It all depends on the protection level you want to achieve, and the amount of money you want to budget, to protect your investment. In the long run, the cost of the cover is minimal compared to the replacement cost of what you are protecting. Remember, a cover not only protects BOTH the inside and outside of a vehicle, it also acts as a theft-deterrent by keeping the vehicle out of view to potential thieves.How to install a custom car cover.We have provided links to help you choose the right fabric for your use and budget.
