Anyone know where I can purchase or have made a touring car cover for open trailer towing

Bad idea Michael, The wind while towing it will damage your little car. Better off using no cover while transporting on an open trailer.

I have to agree with Will.... NIX the cover idea.

I agree with the above post the cover will whip in the wind and damage paint mirrors etc besides damage to the cover itself you cannot get the cover tight enough to eliminate all flapping. :-(

Its the constant flapping of the cover at speed damages the paints finish. I haven't tried it but a friend of my damaged his corvette doing this years ago. Tim

Good advice to avoid the cover from Ben Dare and Don Datt

Best way is a custom cover made by a boat or auto upholstery shop.

Fitted to not blow in the wind. One I saw had a small flap in the rear boot to allow any wind that gets into the cover to exit out the back.


Seen on a tour, nice set-up.

Before I moved up to enclosed trailers, I towed my 15 touring with a cover very similar to Kirks. Covered windshield, seats and top. Used a few more bungees to hold everything nice and tight and never had a paint scuffing. Anybody that makes boat covers can do it.

Just sent you a private message.

Or you could have a cover made with a frame so it is a covered trailer.

This one was for a Town Car with the touring roof folded it could be a lot lower.

I have two closed cars and I load them backward because of the visors and flat windshield, the backs are curved, I use stretch wrap and go a couple of rounds, it keeps the bugs, tar, small rocks from doing any harm.
