PostSubject: Camper Weather Cover   Fri Jul 01, 2016 2:12 pm

I have a Storm Force, 4 layer cover for my van, but there are 2 issues:

1- the inside appears to be delaminating, leaving fluff and bits all over the paintwork when I take it off
2- it doesn't appear to breathe all that well as there is lots of condensation on the bodywork when I take it off, which kind of defeats the purpose of having it on!

Any ideas? Recommendations for a new one perhaps?

Cheers, DB

Don't think there's many people on here that use covers for that very reason, that and the rubbing of the cover on the paintwork when it's windy.

Personally I used to keep mine open to the elements so it could dry out propperly, just gave it a good wax every few months

Danbury do a custom cover that's meant to be breathable and tailored to fit the Brazilian, might be a better option if you still want to use a cover

Scooby would say NO to using a cover.
Scooby has been 'free range' all his life (ie. out in the open).
We bought a JK cover for him but never used it for the reasons stated above.
Eventually sold it on Ebay still un-opened in the box.

I purchased a JK cover from a forum member last year and found it worked very well. I used it from late November til end of March this year. There was no condensation on the outside and the Absinthe recommended dehumidifier seemed to do a good job inside. Also after I removed the cover it was still nice and shiny

Getting mixed opinions here!!

One of the reasons for the cover is to stop the beady eyes criminals eyeing Arfa up. We had a few interested 'thieves' taking photos a while back and 'out of site out of mind' is our approach. We have no option but to park on the road, so we really do need to have a cover on him.

Hi babister,
We have the Danbury cover and we're very happy with it so far. It doesn't scratch or rub as it is custom made to the Brazilian shape. It also fits over the roof rack, spare wheels (front and back) and can breathe with the sewn vents. Costs twice as much as the JK cover but worth it as the manufacturing quality is superior.

I have a Danbury one which is still in its box from new.

£100 if it's of use to anyone.

Cheers. Have you got any pictures of this? I can't seem to find anything on the Danbury website!
