Top 3 Questions on Carcoon Car Covers

If you are already looking for a car cover, you might be wondering why you should opt for the Carcoon over a more traditional model.


The Carcoon utilizes an air flow system that makes it easy to keep moisture and grime away from your car with the ultimate protection system. All you need to do is enclose your car into this environment and you will be on your way.

There are a few tips you should consider to make sure your car is stored safely.

Q: Are you blowing air in the Carcoon to keep it inflated?

There are two ways to set up your Carcoon:

  • You can enter the initial drying mode which removes all moisture from the area but does not continue to circulate the air afterward.
  • You can also enter storage mode that will draw in air then continue to circulate it throughout the Carcoon to keep your car dry and to prevent the air from getting stale.

Either way, you are not dealing with large gusts of air within the Carcoon, but a gentle air treatment that will simply keep things moving.

Q: How do you keep the area inside the Carcoon sterile when drawing in circulated air?

Most of the reason why people want a car cover is to keep contaminants away from the paint and interior. Designers of the Carcoon have taken these concerns into consideration when developing the design to help make sure that particles in your storage space do not wind up trapped under your car cover.

The air circulation system helps make sure that no moisture winds up trapped inside the Carcoon. The air intake area also has a filter attached to keep out pollutants. These filters can be washed, and should be replaced every few years in clean storage facilities to make sure they can adequately eliminate irritants.

Q: Which version of the Carcoon do I need?

There are double and single skin Carcoons available:

  • Double skin versions were meant to be used outdoors in carports or parking lots for added protection.
  • Single skins can be used in indoor storage facilities to protect your car from pollutants.

You will also need to consider which size is appropriate for your vehicle. There are several standard sizes for different vehicle types with measurements to help you determine which is appropriate.

If you do not see what you are looking for, Carcoons can be made to a custom height to accommodate very large vehicles.
