Truck Cover Advice

Looking at a cover for the 54AD. It will be used in a enclosed garage and primary use is to keep dust off. Any recommendations??

Re: Truck Cover Advice

California car cover will make you one that has custom pockets for you mirrors, a hole for the antenna to go through and other little things, (at extra cost) and they have probably the best rep in the industry but they aren't inexpensive. Cheap to keep the dust off, probably Ebay, Walmart other generic cover that is the right size.

Here is an indoor cover on Ebay for about 100 that might get the job done. They also sell an outdoor cover. https://www.ebay.com/itm/13312012273...pid=1740138136

outdoor =

Re: Truck Cover Advice

Thanks, just ordered one from Car Covers as recommended Used a coupon (save20) and knocked off 20%. Will warn tho that e receipt can back as "you just made an international purchase" which was a bit unsettling. Just a dust cover as the 54 has its own garage and i can't keep up with keeping it clean. One would think theres not much dust in air here on ocean but not true.

Re: Truck Cover Advice

Dust cover/hand print cover as long as they breath well and don't trap moisture under them they keep the truck clean. A lot of the time the dust comes from what else you are doing in the garage though, not many of us can swing a "garage" to just park our fun rides along with a "shop" to work on them in.

Been exceptionally lucky with real estate but had to settle for a metal garage this time due to new extreme costs. Metal buildings are very "porous" and little chance of heating or sealing the basic way they come. My main shop is over in a stick built Building with good seals and thanks to 24Hr dehumidifer its relatively rust and dust free. I will say i miss my previous stick built garage. Was only 3 years old when we moved. No leaks!!!

Re: Truck Cover Advice

For the last 12 years, I've walked in my shop and smiled at the beauty of 58 TRUK
I'd hate to think of missing out on the last 12 years by looking at a cover
Maybe it's just me, but I enjoy looking at TRUK every freaking day ��
