Default Car cover suggestions

Hello I am wondering what suggestions some of you who have car covers would have. I would like to have a nice fitting cover not a generic droopy cover that falls to the ground.
Thanks,
chris

I’m sorry it will be used indoor but will be in the sun about 6 hours a day as we use our garage as a front door often and it faces the east.

Satin stretch is form fitted but will not completely cover the wheels and tires. About 6” will not be covered.

I have this one:

2005-2013 C6 Corvette Ultraguard Stretch Satin Indoor Car Cover (Red)
Amazon Amazon

i love it. It fits great and keeps the dust off. It is also very soft.

Same cover as above, in black, and $40 cheaper.

Great car cover at an amazing price. I have one and have zero complaints.

Cannot remember where I purchased mine, but many vendors sell something similar. Seems like polyester exterior and soft underneath. Comes with a bag and tie downs. I only use this indoors, but fits pretty well.

That cover doesn’t fit as snug as most.

Great car cover at an amazing price. I have one and have zero complaints.
Here is a picture of my cover.

Pro Tip - spend $5 and buy a couple iron-on emblems for each end of your car cover to make your life easier when installing your cover. Quickly knowing which is the front and rear of the cover is a big help.

Instructions for installing the iron-on. Place a hard surface down, I used a block of wood, don't use an ironing board. Place the cover over the hard surface. Place the emblem where you want it. Place a towel over the emblem and car cover to prevent burning. With the iron on its highest setting place the iron on top of the towel over the emblem. Let the iron sit for 60 seconds. Remove the iron and don't touch anything for 30 minutes and it should be on permanently with no damage. The basic idea is to get the adhesive of the emblem to flow and bond, and then to give it time to properly cool and set.

This outdoor "Soft Shield" cover by Corvettes America has worked well for me and I've used it in garage and outside. It has a plush fleece liner that provides an extra layer of protection and also reduces the risk of the cover scratching the car. Last winter while rolling my snow thrower out of the garage I snagged an extension cord with a wheel causing it to veer into the side of the car. I was afraid to look but was happy to find only a small tear in the outer cover material with no mark on the car.
