I tried doing a search for Cabin Covers and did not see anything, so forgive me if this has been addressed before.
I would like to get some advice on what type or brand of cabin cover for my Cherokee. I would like for it to be waterproof and be sensitive to the plastic windshield. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks!

I have had several covers from Bruces, they are great. Soft lining for plexiglas = no worries about scuffing.

I bought a real nice used Bruce's cabin cover for my Comanche by looking at the PA 24 page on eBay. It doesn't have my N number sewn into it but I could care less. It is in good shape and I put it on whenever I park Papa outside. I saved money and got a good cover.
Bruce's is a PF/CF advertiser; the website is www.aircraftcovers.com . It's reputation is excellent.

As most responded, Bruce's Covers is the best. I bought a full canopy and engine covers for my PA28-140 to protect the engine compartment from rain. The 1971 -140 has hinges on top to access the engine and I found that water gets through quite easily. I had a great experience with Bruce's Covers company. Due to my measuring issues, I miscalculated some shall we say protrusions. I called them up and I was able to ship it back free for further fitting. When it came back it was perfect. On Instagram I have posted a few pics under #N417FL.


Make sure you measure antennas and temperature sensors etc...to avoid shipping back and forth to fit your aircraft. The second time around I used the iPhone's Measure with pictures.

Cheers,

Thanks for the advice everyone. I did order a cover from Bruce's and I'm pretty happy with it. Will get to really try it out at Oshkosh.

All the best
Dave
