Have a look at this site.Seems like a cheaper storage option than Carcoon.....

Spotted this product before, But Carcoon just looks so cool!
Was in WH Smiths a few weeks back flicking through a copy of Practical Classics mag. They had comparison of 8/10 car covers for outdoor use. Cant remember which came first but Specialist Car covers came second overall.
What surprised me is that Covercraft (the product I was actually going to buy) who market their outdoor cover as the ultimate in outdoor protection actually came about 7th. Plus theirs is more expensive than SCC's cover. Also SCC covers are a perfect fit, and tailored to the shape.
I know which i'll be ordering...
before ordering , check out car cover systems. I bought an indoor cover a while ago and while it's not the most glamorous of websites , the products are well made and reasonable priced @ about £100 inc delivery.
Thanks Tony. Will look into it.
Carcoon's the one chaps

Tried to get one for the missus car, but it is still a pain as she uses it every weekday. If she ever gets around to buying a runabout I will seriously consider one.
My first choice would be to move house to one with a double garage!!
Do you mind this is a serious thread about car storage
What price does the Ferrari size come out at, I think in a pm you sent me a few months ago you said it was size 4
Slightly off topic Steve but what brand are the yellow door cabinets they look similar to one I looked at about £50 each
You would be better off with a size 5 which caters for the extra width of a Ferrari.Will pm you some details.
The cabinets are made by Stanley Tools, I'm well impressed with them and excellent value I thought.
They are the same ones I see, where did you get yours and can they handle much weight, paint tins etc...
Great, Thanks for that Steve
I got mine from a local tool suppliers, they are shelf assembly with plastic bodies but the doors and shelves are steel.
Very strong, take quite a bit of weight, mine do have paint tins etc in.
I 've got 4 wall cabinets, 2 floor cabinets under the bench and a tall floor standing cabinet, IIRC they cost me about £350.
I have seen them in the Argos catalogue a couple of years ago.
I am sure I see them in a garden centre that is a Qd type spin off, I am sure they were £29 each, I will have a look there in the new year
Sounds good. Need to sort my mess of a garage out. Looked at some in Machine Mart but they were a little expensive from what I remember.
Interesting tip:- My up and over garage door had a 1/2" gap at the bottom. I drilled several holes, split a doors (width) length of hose down its length and attached it to the bottom edge. Hermetically sealed garage
Not sure if it's appropriate to post this here, but if anyone's interested, I have an outdoor Carcoon that I don't require anymore now that I have a heated garage. Used to keep my 512TR in it, so width won't be a problem
It's only been used for a year, and is in very good condition. Going cheap to a good home.
hmm...wonder if my missus Range Rover will fit in it, I could leave ity on for her to drive round in it, may stop her keep clobbering the car
if it will work indoors I will have it
Pete, you can use them indoors, you just can't see through them.
Thanks Steve, I have seen them in solid grey/silver rather than the transparent, I presume they still have the same fan system?
