Covercraft offers a wide selection of fabrics, to allow you to select the one that will meet your vehicle's protection needs and budget. Different fabrics offer different levels of protection performance, and some focus on protecting from a specific element, like intense sun exposure or dust. Our range of fabrics is based on experience in manufacturing covers since 1965. Use the chart below to help identify which fabric is best suited for the protection needs you require. We've tried to be as realistic as possible in showing how the fabrics perform in certain conditions, but keep in mind that our opinion is based on performance comparisons with other fabrics currently used for vehicle covers.
All Covercraft fabrics are "breathable" to allow good air circulation under the cover. That's important because it assures that any moisture or condensation under the cover can easily evaporate, and it also reduces heat build-up on hot days. Remember, rain water (not acid rain) won't hurt a vehicle's finish; it's UV rays and pollutants in the air that cause the most damage to the exterior and interior finish.
Using the chart, you'll find good, basic protection is provided by the Multibond® / Block-it® 200 Series fabric, while NOAH® and WeatherShield® are more expensive and provide excellent all-weather protection. For paint protection from dust and dirt during indoor storage, consider tan flannel or Dustop®. If a cover is being used in an extreme sun environment, Sunbrella® or our new WeatherShield® HD may be the best cover to use. It all depends on the protection level you want to achieve, and the amount of money you want to budget, to protect your investment. In the long run, the cost of the cover is minimal compared to the replacement cost of what you are protecting. Remember, a cover not only protects BOTH the inside and outside of a vehicle, it also acts as a theft-deterrent by keeping the vehicle out of view to potential thieves.
Universal and semi-custom covers had been around quite a while before Covercraft identified the market potential, and began catering to enthusiasts who wanted a more "perfect fit" for the cover being used to protect their pride and joy. Back in the 60's (in the last millennium), the most popular covers we made were for British and European sports cars and they were called "mittens". Today, custom covers are made for everything from kit cars to motorhomes.
While outdoor fabric covers can be used indoors as well, their primary function is to provide protection from the elements when the vehicle is parked outdoors - UV, bird droppings, tree sap, etc. Different fabrics provide different degrees of protection. Use our fabric guide charts to select the fabric that is best suited to your needs.
We have over 80,000 listings in our computerized pattern library and add new patterns every week.
From street rods to exotics... Indoor covers are designed to protect vehicles that aren't "daily drivers" - the kind of car that gets cleaned and pampered before it's tucked away. Some of our indoor fabrics provide some ding and dent protection, some are dust barriers, and others are so soft you'll be envious of how the paint and chrome surfaces are being pampered!
We have over 67,000 listings in our computerized pattern library and add new patterns every week. Your dealer or retailer can check our database and if the pattern is not currently listed, or if the pattern is special, we'll provide a dimension sheet which is easy to complete (our most popular dimension sheets can be downloaded from this web-site). The measurements you provide will be input in a CAD system that creates the custom pattern for your application. We can accommodate hood scoops, roll bars, grille guards, winches, you name it, we'll custom make the pattern to fit any vehicle. Remember, if it has wheels, Covercraft can cover it!
