I've been reading some good reviews about the "Stormforce" car covers from http://coveryourcar.co.uk/store/home.php
BUT they don't have any covers tailored to a Flavia Coupe (no surprises there, but they do do Fulvias).

Can anyone recommend a manufacturer that does a heavy duty car cover for all year round outdoor use?

Alternatively, are there any more common models of similar dimensions that people have been able to use on their coupes? Volvo P1800 occurred as a possibility to me, but they are too short.

Try http://www.coverscars.co.uk/outdoorfullsizecar.htm, I had one from them for my Suzuki Cappuccino.
Very good cover had zipped doors and substantial straps including one then went underneath the car, and the cover was tailored to fit, I'm sure if you supply them with the dimensions they can make you one.

Brian... You had a Suzuki Cappucino...

Did you need a car cover for that, could you not just carry it into the house and put it under the stairs!? Grin

Was it an effective cover for keeping the moisture away?

The "Stormforce" cover was getting a rave review on the Morris Minor website (no I don't have one of them  Tongue) and it seems to have some good technology that keeps the car well ventilated and dry.

This is a amazing service!!!

Yesterday I emailed www.coveryourcar.co.uk to ask if they could suggest a cover that would be a close fit to a Lancia Flavia and I got this reply

"Hi Mike
 
Having looked at the dimensions we do have a pattern for this car and it will be live on the site in a few moments under Lancia.
 
Always nice to meet another Lancia owner.

I just went to the website and it's there already. I'll be buying it in the new year and will give you a product review once I've tested it in a Scottish winter.

Hi Mike,

Yes it was a touch on the small side but it wrapped around you like a glove, talk about bang for the bucks, beautiful engineering and went like the proverbial off a shovel up to 82mph when the governor cut in, but mine was a japanese import rather than a car sold her, and had been "seen To" and top speed was about 105mph, not bad for a 3 cylinder DOHC 12v turbo of 657cc, real little roll skate with aircon as standard. All British cars were either silver or red but mine was a metallic green, and the only one in the Club that had electric door mirrors. Another one of those 'I wish I still had' See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_Cappuccino

I Digress, yes the cover was waterproof and sounds of very similar construction to the one you're commenting on, and was waterproof and breathable.

No LSD unfortunately but it surprised everyone when I joined the club, as no one had seen one with electric adjusting mirrors ,but mine was a Japanese import rather than an official UK car.
