Default Corvette Cover

Going on vacation in my new 2019 Grand Sport and thought it would be nice to get a car cover to put on at hotels each night. Can anyone offer suggestions on the best one to get ?

I wouldn't do that.

You will leave scratches in your paint when you take it on and off after driving all day and picking up dirt particles on your finish.

It will also draw attention to your car and someone may screw with it.

Wow good point. I only cover my car for winter storage after a wash and wax.

Only if you stay someplace that rents rooms by the hour.

I need to leave the car at the docks in LA for a week and thought it might be better to bag it rather than leave it uncovered.

Covercraft. On the expensive side but quality made.

Make sure you get the cable and lock to go with it. Had a cover stolen a number of years ago.

So which is it, leaving at hotels each night or leaving at dock for a week?

I agree with previous poster, I wouldn't cover it if driving daily and covering at hotels each night, however if car is clean and just leaving it at the docks, a cover might be a good idea.
