Folks, we are doing some renovations this fall and unfortunately the 70 series pick up will spend its winter hibernation outside, in our gravel driveway (which we do not salt!).

I realize the sky is the limit for outdoor bubbles/storage for cars. What is the best, cheapest option to keep the snow and some pine needles off while she's outside this winter? We aren't buying anything with climate control. I am sure a Ford F150 car cover from the wal mart would probably work, but maybe someone here has wiser advice.

Thank you!

I bought a Budge fabric cover for my BJ74.
It was on the truck for 3 weeks when the bonnet was off getting wrapped and while I waited for other parts.
Devilish rain and windy storms did not seem to bother it.
Engine compartment stayed clean.

Get a portable “garage” from Lowe’s or Homedepot or Costco. I think a 10x20 with walls. Just make sure you keep the snow off of it. That’s what I did with my Ute until I was able to start working on it this last spring. If you can get some winds then you will also want to strap her down, I used the ute as an anchor.

Garage in a box. Just a big car tent. Northern Tool sells pretty good ones that are not bad price wise.

For any snow load you want a dome not a triangular roof.

Cheers
