Carcoon

Any of you chaps bought a carcoon ?

I have a F355 and want to get a carcoon for it

The Car is 425 x 190 and is kept in a garage

Couple of questions

Do you think i need an indoor or outdoor model ?

And whether i should get a Size 3 or 4 ?

Size 3 Carcoon Indoor Clear Large 425cm x 200cm 14' x 6'6"
Size 3 Carcoon Indoor Coded Regal Red Large 425cm x 200cm 14' x 6'6"
Size 3 Carcoon Outdoor Large 425cm x 200cm 14' x 6'6"
Size 4 Carcoon Indoor Clear 470cm x 200cm 15'5" x 6'6"
Size 4 Carcoon Indoor Coded Regal Red 470cm x 200cm 15'5" x 6'6"
Size 4 Carcoon Outdoor 470cm x 200cm 15'5" x 6'6"

I think i would prefer as small as possible but it does seem tight

I have used carcoons for 12 years and have two at the moment. There are two other types of airchamber on the market. Both have frames. I tried these but found they took up too much space. There are downsides to the Carcoon. 1) drive in entry not possible 2) with the zip at the bottom you have to get down and dirty to release the car. For this reason I use only during the winter when the cars are rarely used. In the summer i just use the oem dust cover. Suggest you do not dehumidify as well. Some moisture is necessary to prevent rubber and leather drying out. The air blown in is fine in most climates. The forced circulation prevents moisture condensing out on to the car.

I have my 430 in a size 4.

Hope this helps

Ok, at first I thought this was great stuff/item, but why do you want to do this? Can't you just keep garage tight, from dust etc. with an A/C/heater and filtering unit?

That's what I do. Not trying to be insulting, just wonder why the need. Are there special issues with your garage?
