The Best Carports to Keep Your Vehicle Covered

A great carport protects your car from sun, wind and rain

No garage? No problem.

The sun can be cruel to your car. Its ultraviolet rays can do a number on the wax job, and its heat will seemingly turn the interior into the world’s largest oven. In a perfect world, your car would slumber peacefully inside a cool garage, but when that’s not available, a carport is your next best bet. Thankfully, carports can be affordable, portable, and easy to install. Here are a few models that will give your car some much-needed relief in our year-round sunshine.

This carport is 12x20 feet and just over 9 feet tall. The polyethylene cover is UV-resistant, water-resistant, and is easy to install over the powder-coated steel frame. Turn it from a carport into a party tent by removing the three zippered panels. Consumers who bought it, though, suggest buying a few extra anchor stakes to help keep in place when the wind whips up.
