Even if you don’t own one of the world’s most expensive cars, vehicles are still valuable investments well-worth protecting. And that was the thought that spurred the team behind CarCapsules to develop an automobile-fortifying system in 1988 that eliminates the factors that can depreciate a car’s condition and monetary value.
Comprised of a 10mm PVC bubble with heavy-duty nylon zippers and an 18oz Herculite abrasion, flame, and mildew-resistant base-mat, the capsule uses a high-pressure fan, circulating air, drawing a flow in from outside and dispelling air into the bubble 3-4 times every hour, keeping the internal temperature at a constant, and entirely eliminating any moisture and condensation from the air using what CarCapsule calls “Evaporative Storage Technology.” Boats, motorcycles, ATV/UTVs, and convertibles are left open and uncovered inside the bubble, while cars have their windows rolled all the way down, eliminating mildew and rust from forming. The Indiana-based outfit has a wide range of both indoor and outdoor models for all types of vehicle, as well as “Showcase” models for displaying vehicles while protecting them. They also have a carbon fiber version. Pricing starts at $299 for the indoor BikeCapsule and goes up to $7,495 for the 36’ Pitched Roof, 10’ Tall Outdoor Showcase.
