With the time of year changing and thinking about storage does anyone use one of these Cairo Port car storage units or anything similar and any thoughts as to whether they work well.

I have an unheated double garage and currently use a Classic Editions stretch cover on my 993.

Alternatively any other tips for storage over the winter. I did run a dehumidifier and an electric heater however not sure if that was worth the effort and cost.!!

I bought two of them, and can't recommend them tbh. Quality wasn't great, I'd look at carcoon if I was in the market again.

I have a Carcoon for my other car, it works really well. Put a wet car in it, and the airflow dries the car in about an hour.

Many thanks for the recommendation. Carcoon it is then so will price one up.
Interesting how well it works and also provides an additional level of protection.
