    I bought a California carcover for mine, fits extremely well, soft inside. can be tailored for your car (spoiler and mirror pockets if needed). I think I paid between $150-$200, for it, been a long time since i bought it. Comes with storage bag and a strap that goes under the mid point of the car to help hold it down. Looks likek they are on sale now, normally $299 now $150, free shipping, they have been around for quite a while, good reputation:

    I've got one of them too.

    It's a good car cover but there's something to keep in mind about your expectations.
    They are designed to "breathe" so they don't trap moisture under them like a plastic tarp does.

    This means some dust and pollen will soak through the cover and your paint won't be very clean after an extended period of time. They protect the paint (and interior) from sun fade, shed most of the rain off the cover but they don't keep the paint spotless.

    Will this cover be a good option for indoor storage?
    I will need a cover soon since my car was painted yesterday.

    For indoors, I'm just using a cheaper $40 Auto Zone cover with a soft inner liner. And pollen still gets through it and my garage doors during spring season.

    This just says carcover.com

    I just looked up calcarcover.com which is much more expensive and fitted to your Camaro's specifications (spoiler & mirrors). How much did everyone pay?

    You may already know this but your gonna want that paint to cure for awhile before you put a cover on it-most likely a couple of months-correct me if I'm wrong

    I bought my cover over a decade ago, IIRC it was 250 or so, But I had a logo sewn into it .it is for indoor storage
    I think it's the Dustop model
