    I may have to start parking my truck outside of the garage again and was wondering if anyone makes a good cover that will fit my truck. It is a DoubleCab with a topper on the bed. I was wondering if one of the SUV covers would work? Anybody know of one or have any ideas? Thanks

    I'd keep away from the car-cover, personally... It's just going to scratch up your clear like crazy. They can be more harm than good, especially if kept outside, where it's subject to wind/dirt/etc...

    If it's stored indoors, a cover is a good choice.

    Unfortunately, where I have to park it outdoors is under a bush that drops berries all over it and that really ruins my paint. I need a good option to keep the berries off, short of cutting down the trees. Any suggestions.

    If that's the case, I'd recommend keeping it thoroughly polished, and waxed. Waxed paint will cause debris to literally slide right off. A bird pooped on my firebird (black car, fresh paint) a few days after a wax job... The poop literally slid off the fender, on to the ground. It just left a little smear, which easily cleaned up. I'd recommend keeping it waxed, so the berries don't cause you much hassle.
