Cover Outdoor

Post by Richardmorgan » Mon Feb 06, 2012 8:06 pm

Hello,
Has anyone experience of outdoor covers please? Compared to the pull up and over type 'garage' what are the pitfalls in use?
Thanks
Richard

Although not directly related to Triking I have used outdoor car covers for Winter storage of my Eunos over the last 10 years. For 7 years a Specialised fully tailored cover was used http//www.specialisedcover.com. This was made from a breathable multi layer cloth with a fairly soft lining and was very good. The stitching eventually started to fail and I replaced it with a cover from Hamilton Classics Ltd. http://www.hamiltonclassic.co.uk . This is made by Monsoon, breathable, fleece lined, multi layer but only semi tailored. It is very good and I think the semi tailored fit is better as it allows more air around the car. Both covers have kept the car very dry helping to maintain its good condition
I have recently purchased a Triking and to help with additional outdoor storage I have purchased a Canadian made Bike Barn Monster Cover in trike size. http://www.thebikebarn.net/smartbarn_model.html . Presently this is housing 2 large motorcycles. It is large enough to take a Triking. It is good, fully waterproof but this does mean it’s prone to condensation in the widely varying temperatures at this time of year. The bikes stored under this are covered with their own loose fitting breathable cover to avoid drips.
Hope this is of some help.
Paul

A somewhat late contribution I know... but the TD's factory original outdoor covers where from Cover Systems, Rushton Northants (see web as usual). They are silvered beathable polyester specifically tailored to the car, with retaining straps to stop them blowing off. They will still have the pattern and make as required. This is mentioned on the newly posted spares availability list in the members technical area. I have used one indoors for years and outdoors occassionally. Seems to fit and work fine.
