I will be moving cross country this winter and will be towing my C7 on a U-Haul vehicle trailer. What car cover do you recommend for this purpose?
Interesting idea Norm. However, unlike a boat, the Vette has to be driven up onto the trailer, so either the shrink wrap would need to be applied on the trailer, or a custom cover like those GM uses with Velcro fastened doors on the cover, permitting driving the Vette after it is covered. I think ctpj (post 4) has the safest suggestion combined with 15snow-ray (post 3) idea of a good waxing.Here's a thought, just like the boat dealers and marinas winterize the boat with shrink wrap, and like the new Vettes are shipped from BG, get it shrink wrapped.
Best advice here.I would not recommend you use a car cover at all. You will end up with scratches from buffeting no matter what you use. I would recommend you use a track wrap type temporary ppf on the front of the car and any areas susceptible to stone chips.

Totally agree. I have seen the damage a car cover can do to a good paint job when towed in an open trailer. I would recommend an enclosed trailer or at least a trailer with a front metal wind and debris protection. Just the dirt and possible rocks off your tires both front and back can end up hitting your car. It can do a lot of damage as it did to mine when towing.Can't really recommend any particular brand however if your towing it in an open trailer you will get wind buffering that car cover against the surface of your vehicle so I recommend a good fresh wax coating to attempt to off set any fine scratches that will be caused. Don't know how particular you are about your car so it may not be of any concern.
I recently shipped mine in an enclosed trailer car carrier. It was on the road for only 3 days but I was surprised the amount of dirt and a film on the entire car from the diesel fumes from the tractor pulling the trailer I assume. And this was a professional auto transport company used by Corvette museum etc.
