In April I bought a car cover for our second car which is only used for long trips and hardly ever in town. It disintegrated in the last couple of weeks like you won't believe it! Almost nothing is left on the roof and hood, only the sides. Do you know any car tarps, wraps or covers that hold up in the brutal Arizona heat and sun? - Thanks!
P.S. gives me great gratitude for our human skin which holds up decades in this environment even if we are not in the sun all the time!

I've had the same problem for years with my boats and atvs. Poly-anything is destroyed in short order. The only boat cover that ever held up for long was made of that heavy cotton duck material. Cotton duck would be too heavy and scratchy for a car, I think. Mostly I now buy the cheap ones and plan on replacing them in a few months. They do last longer in winter.
