    Don't get a waterproof car cover. They hold moisture in as well as keeping rain off.

    I have bought a couple covers from Costco for like $30 each and they work great.

    Of course, my cars are also always garaged, so I don't know how much value that adds.

    its a 10'x20' enclosed canopy from Ace Canopy, it ran me about $350, its not made for the winter time cause it collapsed on my car and i had to order more piping which cost another $180
