I am in the market for a new car cover. It'd be nice if it is less than $100. Right now I have an Advance Auto Parts special that does a good job at keeping the dirt off. Unfortunately I don't have a garage, but I do have a carport that is covered on 3 sides with a gravel bottom. The problem is the carport 'sweats' just about every morning. I'd like a cover that is 'waterproof' so my car doesn't get wet every day when condensation drips on it, but I also think it should be breathable from the inside because I bet moisture could get trapped underneath because there would be moisture rising from the ground. Do they make such a thing?

You are not going to find a cover that will do all your asking for under $100. IMO, a company such as Covercraft or California car Cover can help you find a material to fit your needs.

if you go to Amazon warehouse deal section, you can get a car cover with a scratched box for more than 1/2 off the price. i have bought 5 covers from there.

You guys that have bought CoverCraft or California brand covers, how have they held up after a couple of years or more - in outdoor use?

I have bought I think, 2 covers in the last 7 years for my car. stays out side most the time , and the that's when I cover it. I have bought from the same E-bay seller . I would like to step up to a way better cover myself. it looks like a polyester will stand up better than the polypropylene then I have been buying. Been looking at carcovers.com
