I got custom car covers for my Vanagons from one our online vendors
(BusDepot, GoWesty, or Van-Cafe). I got the heavy StormShield type
(CoverKing is the maker I believe) . Main thing to pay attention to
if ordering a custom cover is to inform them if you have power
mirrors or not. On one of my car covers, it was for the wrong set of
mirrors, meaning I have to fold the mirrors in when using the cover.
There are covers for Westys and regular Vanagons. Also, it helps if
you have an antenna that goes all the way down (as the OEM did), a
lot of after market ones don't. This is a real pain for custom car
I glanced over at CoverKing's web site and it looks like they have a
newer material (StormShield was formerly their strongest). StormProof
is there newest. These are materials that allow for breathing (i.e.
don't trap moisture in), but keep rain, ice, snow and UV off of your
vehicle. Expensive, but well worth it if you can't put your van in a
garage. They'll make custom ones too, if you give them all the
measurements, but they already have the dimensions for Westys and
