Best Camaro Car Covers – Coverking, Carscover and West Coast Camaros

Chevrolet Camaros are hands down some of the most beautiful cars out there.  There’s just no denying that. They are sleek, they are stylish, and they go faster than fast.  The latest 650-horsepower, ZL1 takes a mere 3.5 seconds to go from 0-60.  Amazing.

Camaros are also very durable and long-lasting cars.  It’s not uncommon for owners to keep them for 7 to 10-plus years.  The most common lament we hear is that people wish they would have taken better care of their car’s interior and exterior while they had the chance.

Introduction

Cars are especially susceptible to damage when parked outdoors. It is up to you to ensure that you provide your Camaro with the protection that it needs and deserves.

This is where finding the best Camaro car cover comes into play. While car covers are for the most part straightforward, there are a few differences that separate the good from the bad – fit, quality of material and a soft inner lining that won’t scratch your paint.

First thing to look for is a custom fit car cover versus a universal car cover.  A “custom fit” means a tight wrap that prevents any debris getting underneath a “flapping” or similarly loose cover.  It also means that model-specific features like spoilers, mirrors, etc., are taken into consideration.

In terms of quality of material, the key factors are do you park indoors or outdoors and what are the main climate challenges that you face?  Parking outdoors subjects your car’s paint to UV radiation, rain, snow, wind, dust and sometimes even hail.  The more extreme the climate, the more layers of fabric you need in a car cover.

Lastly, the inside of a car cover, i.e. the inner lining, should be soft and as non-abrasive as possible.  The ideal material is cotton or a fleece-like synthetic that won’t scratch the clear coat even when being battered by wind or rain.

Not all Camaro car covers are built with the same quality and functionality. This review will help you zero in on the best.  We have identified four of the top Camaro car covers for your consideration.  All of these are great products with great reviews.

Let’s dive in.

Coverking Custom Fit Car Cover for Select Camaro Models

One of the best options on the market for Camaro owners is the Coverking Custom Fit Car Cover For Select Chevrolet Camaro Models. This offering from Coverking comes with 4-layer protection that will help in keeping the dents, scratches, nicks and dings away from your car.

Made for 2010 models and newer, the Coverking is a capable Camaro outdoor car cover that works indoors as well. It is a custom fit model that contours exactly to the shape of late model Camaros and has tailored mirror and antenna pockets. Neoprene elastic hems in the front and rear, coupled with security grommets, ensure the Coverking stays snugly in place even during heavy winds.

Made in America, Coverking also prides itself on having the fewest seams possible to help maintain the structural integrity of the cover.  This makes for a durable cover that should last much longer than its 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Breathability and moisture resistance are quite good, but Coverking does make heavier duty models if you live in areas that experience heavy rainfall.  For those living in more extreme climates, the Stormproof model is likely a better option.

CarsCover Ultrashield Custom Fit Chevy Camaro Car Cover

The CarsCover Custom Fit Ultrashield Chevy Camaro Car Cover is made for 2010 to 2018 year models and is a perfect example of a Camaro outdoor car cover.  This particular model is a custom , not universal, fit.  It even comes with the little side mirror pockets that we prefer to see on any car cover.Black CarsCover Ultrashield Chevy Camaro Car Cover

We like that this cover comes with an elasticized bottom to ensure a snug fit, one that won’t be compromised by the wind. It also comes with a strap and buckle system to use in case of high winds or particularly inclement weather. If the CarsCover Custom Fit Chevy Camaro Car Cover does one thing right, it is staying in place.

The fabric is a 5-layer construction and is designed for heavy-duty protection.  CarsCover provides the following ratings for this model:

  • Moisture resistance (5 out of 5)
  • Snow protection (4 out of 5)
  • Sun protection (5 out of 5)
  • Dust protection (5 out of 5)
  • Breathability (4 out of 5).

The Ultrashield offers a great mix of moisture resistance and “breathability.”  Some moisture inevitably accumulates under car covers, even if just due to condensation.  A cover that is “breathable” allows this moisture to evaporate and prevents mold and mildew from forming.  Car covers that can keep most external moisture off your car while also having excellent breathability are truly special products.

As with most premium car covers, the Ultrashield comes with a pouch for compact storage.  Car covers can be unwieldy and take up a lot of space without a storage pouch.

Over time these covers will get dirty.  The fleece inner-lining will pick up dust and grime every time it is installed.  The exterior of the cover accumulates everything dust to leaves to bird poop.  The Ultrashield is washable.  It can be machine washed in washers without agitators.  Most people simply wash the cover while it’s installed.  A neat trick for washing the interior lining is simply to install the cover inside-out and wash it that way.

Who is the Ultrashield best suited for?  Anyone who wants premium protection for their Camaro; anyone who parks outdoors for extended periods of time; and/or anyone who lives in especially sunny, rainy, dusty climates.

CarsCover Xtrashield Custom Fit Chevy Camaro Car Cover

Black CarsCover Xtrashield Custom Fit Camaro CoverThe CarsCover Xtrashield Camaro car cover is one step below its more expensive cousin reviewed above.  The Xtrashield can still be used both indoors and outdoors, but it is a lighter cover made for shorter-term parking and/or less challenging climates.

The fabric is a 2-layer construction, and CarsCover provides the following ratings for the Xtrashield:

  • Moisture resistance (2 out of 5)
  • Snow protection (2 out of 5)
  • Sun protection (3 out of 5)
  • Dust protection (5 out of 5)
  • Breathability (5 out of 5).

Labelled as “water repellant” versus “water proof” the Xtrashield will protect against light rains, but heavier storms will leave your paint wet.  One area where the Xtrashiel truly excels is breathability.  It is outstanding at letting trapped moisture evaporate and making sure that mold and mildew are unlikely to form.

Beyond the differences in material quality, the Xtrashield comes with a storage pouch and a strap-and-buckle system like the Ultrashield.  However, it does not have the same fleece inner lining.

Who is the Xtrashield best suited for?  Camaro owners in all climates who mostly park indoors but occasionally need protection outdoors; people who live in moderate-to-mild environments; and/or people who live in areas where humidity is an issue.

West Coast Camaro Ultraguard Plus

Red and Black West Coast Camaro Ultraguard PlusThe West Coast Camaro Ultraguard Plus is an extremely stylish cover for an extremely stylish car.  Although not as heavily built as the Ultrashield reviewed above, the Ultraguard is intended to be used both indoors and outdoors.  It is made out of 210 Denier polyester with a water resistant coating on the outside.   It will provide protection against light showers but is not effective against heavier storms.

Similar to its moisture resistance, the Ultraguard is ultraviolet resistant but does not block all UV rays.  Fit is excellent but relies on the elastic him and stretchy fabric.  It does not have tie-down grommets or a strap and buckle system.

Where the Ultraguard really shines is the interior lining.  It is made from premium cotton, which is considered to be the top of the line for car covers.  You can shift the car cover around once it’s installed and be confident that no scratches will befall your car’s clear coat.

The Ultraguard comes with an excellent storage bag and is light and easy to maneuver.  Tags are included that designate the “front” and “back,” making installation quick and easy.

Who is the Ultraguard best suited for?  Style mavens, people who park indoors, and people who put an extra premium on their paint and thus value the Ultraguard’s premium cotton inner lining.  People who park outdoors long term should probably look at the CarCovers Ultrashield instead.
