    Hi, new guy here and apologies upfront if my question has been answered before or if this is the wrong sub-forum for asking it, but my HC Challenger will be a 3-season fun toy. It'll be garaged by Thanksgiving, or sooner if the white stuff hits early, so what would you HC veterans recommend for a quality car cover that won't scratch the finish?

    Just looking to learn - thanks!

    Myself I got the MOPAR Hellcat cover. Like you mine is a 3 season ride. Had the cover on and off multiple time with ZERO issues.

    I went through Empire for an indoor cover. Mine is garaged year round. The cover is soft and fits nicely. Happened to hit a sales offering and paid less than $160 for it. To date...zero issues.

    I will be purchasing a Coverking Satin Stretch cover. Had it for my Shelby and loved it. Looks like Yoga pants for cars. :)

    Well, I have two other vehicles that serve as daily drivers, although if I lived in the lovely state of Virginia I'd probably be driving my 'Cat some portion of every day since I'm retired. But up here, snow, sleet, black ice, salt, and other winter nasties are a fact of life.

    I should've mentioned that even in the spring and summer months the 'Cat won't get parked outside. It'll be garaged. The cover I'm looking for is primarily for storing during winter - say Dec. 1st thru Easter.

    Thanks!

    I have the Coverking Autoboby Armor which is a very nice car cover that also has 3 outer layers to prevent against dings and a soft inner fleece lining to protect your cars finish and fits like a glove.The material used is highly breathable to reduce condensation & It also comes with a 5 year replacement warranty followed by their lifetime repair warranty!!! On the Coverking website it retails for $499.00 but if you do a search on Ebay there's a seller : ( SEATCOVERSPR ) that sells them for $369.99 with free shipping so check out the Coverking website then find a cover you prefer then do a search on Ebay then Amazon to get the best deal and good luck!!!

    Look great. Look like it would take a team of four to get that beauty on though.

    I use this.one indoors, for winter storage and a fewtimes per week if I'm not going to be driving for a few days. . Goes on and off simple. Scratch free. Look for the Satin Fleece cover. 20160518_175557.jpg

    Pinetreecat: thanks. Is there a model number or sku # for that one?
    Also, what did that cost you?

    I've had several covers in the last few months. I've had the California Car Cover for my 16 Subaru STI that I traded for my Hellcat. It was very nice. I liked it better than the Mopar one with the Hellcat logo that I had at first with my Hellcat. But hands down the best cover there is (in my experience) is Coverking Autobody Armor Cover Coverking Autobody Armor Custom-Fit Vehicle Cover
    It has a soft fleece lining and is breatheable for outdoor use. It's a heavier cover as well which makes it easier for one person to put on, especially in the wind (I have an open garage). The Coverking also fits the car perfectly like a glove. They are custom made and are expensive at $500. Turnaround is 2-4 weeks as well. I got mine right around 3 weeks.

    I've used several covers on my cars. If you really want the best quality indoor cover, go with the Coverking satin stretch custom cover.
    It fits the hellcat like a glove & is super soft, yet offers a lot of protection. By far the best I've ever seen. I got it for around $360.00 on CaRid.com
