    I had no idea what to call it, and I know others have run into the same problem.
    So how about an Off Topic/General Discussion/Odds & Ends.

    I found this; A Carcoon; interesting, but is it worth $1K+?

    IMO, no. I would like to see a tailored cover for the Elio, as I am forced to keep mine outdoors.

    I would pay $300 for a decent cover that would last 10 years.

    I picked up one of those $300 aluminum tube frame tarp garages a couple of years ago in new condition for $50. I'm set.

    Is the inside of it padding and cloth?

    That just looks like a mutant Meal Worm ate it.

    I wonder if there is any issue with condensation building up inside the cover causing potential issues with rust. Also, how would it hold up to varmints like squirrels, rats, etc. chewing through it.

    There is an air pump that is running through it constantly with air filters; as for varmints and bugs, you would have to talk to the maker.

    Looks like cloth on the car side and only the cushion of air between the cloth and the outer layer.



    I thought about getting one for my car since I cannot fit the car in the garage with all the other toys but the beastly Meal Worm is too big to fit in our tiny driveway, LOL.

    Luckily, Elio is selling their cover for $178. I can't vouch for the quality though.
