Any recommendations for manufacturers for bus covers? I need something that will repel rain/ block UV and provide good breathing characteristics.

This is the one I got from CIP1. It is not bad. Then again I only use it to cover my bus while it is parked in our garage.

Try busdepot. They had some nice ones when I was looking.

Get the one from Just Kampers, Bus Depot sells it. It is the best cover out there.

BTW, don't call it a van! Evil or Very Mad

Thought I would bring this one up from the dead since its the first Google hit.
Looks like the Busdepot (again) has the best option for the bays. I was just wondering if something generic that would fit a Dodge Grand Caravan or something similar would fit.
I dont usually cheap out, but when I do, its for something that I could live without.

I noticed the Silver Tech bus cover is an affordable $109.00 from Mid America. Anyone out there bought one?

I have procured a second bus and need to cover it over the winter since I have a shortage of rooftops around my place.

Jeff I think that's the one I have on my bus, and I'm less than impressed. I don't regularly buy car covers so I don't know what you *should* get a certain price points, but mine has small rips all over it around the lower corners from being removed and put back on. It's not very durable.

I don't want to curse, but I have the EMPI cover on a bus that is living outside. The cover is holding up damn good to the elements and being pulled on and off. It fits really well, I don't even have it tied, and it's hung on through some decent wind storms.
