Default Cover

Hey guys I'm looking for a new cover and I'm not having much luck with the selection. I found one on Eckler's and I almost sh#t when I saw what they are charging for shipping! Are there any decent options? Any help would be appreciated.

There are several options and you can order direct.

Seems over the years that car covers have gotten very expensive. When I purchased my C5 cover, the cover I wanted was $300. I found it here on the forum like new for $150.

On my 2 C4's I have Wolf Covers and another brand. On my LT1 C4 I got a WOLF used on this forum for like $35. I also have a lightweight cover that I put on top of the wolf simply for the fact that I have it.

On my ZR-1, I bought a Wolf new for like $150. That was 10 years ago.

I guess I'm cheap but seems to me that a cover should be 100-150.

Just do some googling. This place has free delivery but there prices might be high - you have to do your research etc.

You get what you pay for in a car cover. However, when you park your Corvette in the garage, I think some of the covers are overkill. My wolfs have treated me well.


Just make sure to indicate the cover is for a ZR-1 as a regular cover is a bitch to get on


Good Luck

I've had Wolfs in the past and they are good covers. The one I have now is a MaxTech but when I bought it my car was in an enclosed garage, but now I have an open air carport and the MaxTech ain't gettin it. Need a good outdoor cover. Thanks for the suggestions guys and anybody else keep em coming.

Posted my reply before I clicked on the link. Thanks man.
