If you can afford a decent one, Cover Craft makes custom fit covers for our cars. Their pricey, for their Noah line it ran me $277. I ordered it from Advance Auto and used a coupon code, free shipping and $50 off the cover.

I have one from Budge. It fits very nicely, and seems to do the job, but it is definitely fragile.

Thanks for your comments guys. My budget is something good, that fits and will stay together. Hopefully the Wagon fits in my garage! Any way, I need to store the car for a couple months. Would custom craft be good for me, or would Budge be better. The wagon is in my driveway now anyway!

I got one on ebay a while back, it is a 5 layer from bestfh.com. It is supposed to fit a wagon, but I almost had to stretch it to get it to cover the car. I only used it once at the Daytona car show a couple of years ago. I forget what I paid for it, but I think it was less than $100.

The Budge cover I have fits easily, and with room to spare. I dunno about any of the others.

That's about all the help I can offer.

CoverCraft is good.  The covers I currently use are CoverKing, I've used their outdoor ones on my wagons over the years.  Not cheap either but they will block the dirt yet allow the moisture to escape.  I got mine when Costco had a special they were running through CoverKing. They are made to fit, I even tried to put a "big mirror" cover on a "small mirror" car and you could tell they had moved the mirror pockets to fit properly.

It was Wolf.  I bought one for my sedan and at the time they were closing out the wagon covers as well. I believe they were bought by Covercraft and they sold out their stock.

I checked Covercraft, coverking, and Budge's websites. I am probably going to have to wait and keep searching. Anyway, i'm new to this fourm, and I think its great! Thanks again.

I use the same covers Mike mentioned. I actually own one of Mike's used outdoor ones....sucker is 5 years old now? I have a newer lighter duty (the one from Costco) under the outdoor cover too. Lol

On my Fleetwood, I have a tan BULDGE cover from AZ. It's the $69 one. It does a nice job repelling water and breathing. I only expect to get a couple of years out of it though for the price. But who knows?!

i can highly NOT recommend Budge brand. I got one ($100) for my wagon and the inside coating began flaking off after a few months and leaving a fine white powder coat all over the car. it had a ten year guarantee so they quickly sent me another one.....which did the same thing....so they sent me another one which did the same thing.
after 3 defective covers they upgraded me to "the shield" their higher quality cover. it came with defective stitching. with needle holes all over the place with no thread in them. it is also SO very lightweight that it will blow off in the wind and it is quite fragile, easily torn. stay away from this company. (don't "budge")

now, their customer service department is EXCELLENT. but unfortunately i found that out because i had to deal with them so many times.
