A temporary change in my storage situation has me considering an all weather car cover from Lang's for the 23 roadster. I am concerned about the difficulty of installing and removing the cover as it may keep me from those spur of the moment neighborhood drives but as the car will be in a carport with a fairly high roof I feel a cover would be a good thing, especially since the cat will probably find its confines to be inviting and cozy. Also, since I don't have an enclosed trailer, would a cover be good for towing on an open trailer? Suggestions, comments? Thanks

Car covers on open trailers is a big no-no. Think giant buffing pad working on your paint in a 55mph wind.

New use a car cover on a trailer while towing. I will wear on the paint and eventually shred from the wind.

Also, I have a beautiful '41 Ford Sedan from the east coast. It was covered with an all weather cover and left outside. While the interior remains at show quality, the paint suffered horribly.
