We already know today's environment is out to get your vehicle, boat, or motorcycle. In fact, right now your shiny chrome, paint, and even your tires are under attack! There is way you can protect your loved one though, and keep an eye on it at the same time. It's called the Car Capsule and it is the ultimate car cover that truly works.
The Car Capsule is a clear vinyl bubble that seals your car, truck, boat or motorcycle completely away from the elements. Dust, dirt, condensation, even insects and prying fingers are locked out.
The Car Capsule is one of the strongest inflatable car covers out there. The vinyl bubble is 10 mil. double polished, radio welded, 100% PVC and anti-static. It's so strong, in fact, you could accidentally drop a 5lb. hammer on your car, truck, boat, or motorcycle when it's in the Car Capsule and it'll bounce off!
The zipper on this unique car cover is 100% nylon and will not scratch your vehicle, boat or motorcycle. The base material is 18oz and it's seamless, impervious to oil, gas and antifreeze. It's also abrasion, mildew resistant and flame retardant. There's nothing else like this car cover storage system on the market!
Q.) If you are bringing in the air from the outside you are also bringing in the moisture from the outside.
How does the vehicle stay dry?
A.) The Car Capsule does not eliminate humidity it eliminates condensation. The fan exchanges the air by volume 3-4 times an hour. This constant air change and air flow does not allow hot air and cold masses to meet. This in turn eliminates condensation and keeps the vehicle completely dry no matter what the temperature or humidity level.
Q.) If I put my car away wet, what will happen?
A.) The Car Capsule is an evaporative system. The constant air change will evaporate all moisture in a matter of hours. This will prevent rust from the exterior parts while eliminating mold and mildew from the interior.
Q.) Should I leave the windows up or down inside the Car Capsule?
A.) You should leave the windows either down all the way or at least half the way down. If you have a convertible the top should be put up so that it will not trap moisture in the compartment it is stored in.
This will let the air circulate throughout the interior keeping it dry and odor free.
Q.) How much room does the Car Capsule take up?
A.) Once inflated the Car Capsule takes up about 1 foot on either side of the vehicle. The front and back depend on what size Car Capsule is used.
Q.) How do you get the vehicle in the Car Capsule?
A.) The Car Capsule has 2 zippers that run around the base mat to the back where the fan is located. Just unzip and roll the upper shroud towards the fan. Pull the vehicle on to the base mat and roll the upper shroud over the vehicle. Zip up the unit and plug in the fan. The Car Capsule takes about 5-10 minutes to inflate.
Q.) What happens if I get a hole in it?
A.) The upper shroud is made of 10 mil PVC. If you do happen to puncture the unit use a piece of clear 100% PVC shipping tape. This will bond to the upper shroud and will not come off.
Q.) What if the power goes out?
A.) The cover will deflate and turn into a regular car cover. When the power returns it will re-inflate in a matter of minutes. We do have a cigarette lighter adapter cord that can be run off of a 12 volt power supply for prolonged power disruptions or for use at car shows.
Q.) Do you have a Car Capsule that will fit my pick-up truck?
A.) Yes, we make a Car Capsule that is tall enough to fit full size trucks and S.U.V.'s. We also make an extended version that will fit most older cars like Packard, Rolls Royce and Cadillac.
Q.) Do you need to use another cover with the Car Capsule?
A.) You do not need to use another cover with the Car Capsule. This will only block air from circulating in the interior and might trap moisture.
Q.) Can the Car Capsule be used for short-term storage?
A.) The Car Capsule can be used for short-term, long-term or anything in between. It takes about the same time to use as a regular car cover except for the inflating of the unit. It takes about a couple of minutes to get the car out.
Q.) Do you have to drain the gas tank or any other fluids before you put the vehicle away?
A.) No, the base mat is impervious to gas, diesel, oil or antifreeze. You do not have to worry about these odors because the air is constantly changing.
Q.) Do you have to use any dry packs or chemicals to keep the vehicle dry?
A.) No, dry packs or chemicals are not needed. This is an evaporative system that uses air flow to prevent condensation. This enables you to take your vehicle in and out anytime you want without having to mess with chemicals or dry packs.
Q.) Will the Car Capsule protect my vehicle from rodents?
A.) The 55 T-Bird on our web site and literature has been stored in an unheated warehouse in the Midwest for 7 years. We have not had a problem with any kind of critters chewing through the material. This car looks as good now as it did when we first put it in the Car Capsule.
Q.) How long will the Car Capsule last?
A.) The prototypes were built in 1988 and are still in use today.
Q.) What if something falls on the Car Capsule while my vehicle is in it?
A.) We have dropped a five pound sledge hammer on top of the Car Capsule and it just bounced off. It will also protect against weed wackers, rakes or snow shovels that lean against the side of the unit.
