Car Cover?

Unfortunately I have to park my 4Runner outside because I have 4 bikes on one side of the garage and the other side is reserved for my wifes' car. Therefore I am looking to get a car cover for my 2004 Toyota 4Runner that is going to sit on the driveway for most of the Spring/Summer/Fall because I will be riding the motorcycle.

Anybody have any insight on a good economical car cover for my 4Runner?

TIA!!!!!


Am I going too slow for you?

Don't cheap out, not worth it; been there done that still regret it. Your dealer should probably have one for your car. Make sure you tell them that you need an all season one.

Called the dealership parts department and Toyota doesn't offer car covers. The dealership also doesn't carry any aftermarket car covers either.

I use their Stormweave cover on an 86 911 Porsche which sits outside (no garage) for the last 8 years with zero problems. The cover has worn out and been replaced once in that time but the car's paint still looks great!

wow big spender, first 4 bikes and now you want a car cover?

Well an 87 Buick Roadmaster would probably work well...just make sure it's suspended far enough up that it doesen't damage your roof racks or anything.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.
