    Heavy duty fitted weatherproof cover for car

    Hi all. Yep, sorry, another "where to buy in Chiang Mai" question from me. I've inherited an Isuzu Dmax pick-up and want to buy a heavy duty fitted weatherproof cover for it..... the car-port is full of bikes and they're staying put!

    I've seen the bike and car covers in Big C and Tesco Lotus before.... have bought a few of the small bike ones but they're piss-poor and fall apart in a few months.... my big bike ones I had custom made.

    Anyone know exactly where I can go in Chiang Mai to buy an off-the-shelf one for the pick-up...... I know they're out there but don't want to spend hours traipsing all round the shops as I'm getting over a busted knee, so I would like to get in, buy and out in as short a time as possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    In this hot humid climate I would not put a vehicle under a cover as it will sweat, better to exposed and hose the dust/dirt off every now and then.

    Thank you Lorenzo...... "The car-port is full of bikes and they're staying put" means there is no room for a red-neck pick-up in my car port which is home to a Harley Ultra, an Africa Twin, a couple scooters and a soon-to-arrive Harley FXRS. The pick-up can live outside, under a cover.

    Now...... do you know where I can buy one?

    I bought my car cover from Tesco and it was fine for three years.
    It is still OK now but I stopped using it because I found it made it easy for mice to get up into the engine bay.

    Can you make a cheap carport for it? With all your bikes and now a car it's maybe better to extend your undercover area. If its pissing down people can get in and out of the car without getting soaked plus it will protect the car. I wouldn't bother with car covers.

    Probably not an option of your renting.

    Nevertheless if you could put it in the car-port you would not need the cover

    why do you think it needs a cover?

    the negatives have been mentioned, what are the positives?

    Protecting the paint from the sun is one big one, protecting the interior from the sun is another also keeping the water and dirt off cant possibly hurt.

    My car lives outside under a cover and has done so for ten years, a cover has served me well.

    Don't buy a cheap one, tyvex is the go.

    modern cars are designed to sit in the sun and rain

    mine is left out in all weathers

    the only time my car was damaged was when I put it in a garage in London whilst I went off for a few months; there was a leak above, the roof collapsed and my car was not happy
    I have reported your post

    Don't argue Doc, much better to have it covered than not innit.

    Yes it is Innit.

    Of course it is Terry.

    Thanks very much Doc,

    Cheers.
