Cool Car cover for SLK

Can anyone out there recommend a good quality car cover for my SLK. It will be garaged while at home however, we winter in Florida under the harsh sun and unfortunately tree sap on occasion.
Any advice/recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks, Ken

Having read some of the threads on here I cannot believe folks would pay what I consider to be frankly MENTAL money for a car cover

Someone selling one for $800???? Insane IMO.

We have a supermarket in England called Lidl - I bought their own brand large car cover for Ł6.99 to cover our SLK whilst on holiday.
It was a great fit, waterproof, and folds into a cushion sized holder.

It kept our car clean from rain, leaves, seagull sh%t etc and when I got back I removed it and put it back in the shed.

I cannot believe folks pay for 'genuine OEM covers' with a logo on?!

Each to their own but IMO some people must have more money than sense.

It's JUST a car cover

I just picked up a brand new Mercedes OEM cover for my SLK350 on eBay for $85. I realize that doesn't help your search, but it does show they are out there. Good luck with your search...
