Aftermarket cover

I want a cover and have one on order but I don't want one with stripes. Are there any aftermarket 2010 camaro car covers without stripes?

Where?

I understand not wanting to attract attention to your car, but the GM cover is awesome. It's waterproof and looks really good in person...

For me its not about not wanting to attract attention... Thats just plain silly. Do you know where you are? If I didn't want attention I wouldn't get a camaro.

For me I don't want stripes on a cover for a car which has no stripes.

Being waterproof is not necessarily a good thing, because firstly that means that the cover does not breathe or allow air to circulate between the car and the cover. This can in turn cause moisture to become trapped beneath the cover and we all know that moisture causes corrosion. While this moisture thing isn't a problem if you're covering and uncovering your car every day, it may present a threat to the sheet metal if you're, say, storing the car over the winter or even over a short period of time.

Keep in mind when shopping for a car cover to find one which fits perfectly - not too snug and not too loose. A snug cover will be difficult to remove and install, likely causing scratches or putting unnecessary strain on your side-view mirrors, if they aren't collapsable. A loose cover will likely flap in the wind and among other things cause dings and scratches. The best kind of cover is the one that is adjustable (not universal, though) at the base, but those are expensive.
