Out door car cocoons

Has anybody got one or any info on outdoor car cocoons,,, crazy really as I have a large double garage but the seven is in the way and poss likely to get damaged , so was thinking of an outdoor cocoon to put the seven in over winter ??  Are they worth the cost ,,,appreciate your thoughts

Derek, the people I know who have them have them are positive about them.

After a few years the sunlight gets the better of the plastic and the material tears.

I have an indoor one and I think getting it off a Seven outdoors would be tricky simply because there is a lot of cover to remove. I wouldn't want to do it in a breeze.

Carcoon Veloce Outdoor is made for the job. No issues with material or getting the car in/out.

Ian B - Odd, I understood the Veloce model to be an indoor bubble, the Outdoor Carcoon doesn't have the Veloce model name - unless I'm missing something?

My 2000 Puma has spent the last 7 years in an Outdoor Carcoon, and comes out of it better than it went in, dry and rust free. I totally recommend them. In fact I've just got another one for my Ford ST200. 

Obviously a dry heated garage is best, but if you don't have the room, the Carcoon is a great alternative.

Derek, upside down conveys the message about your clearout!
