Bike Covers when camping?

Do you cover your bikes when not in use while at the campsite when raining?
I'm thinking, a nylon tarp would work fine and be light weight. But a nylon fitted bike bag might be better as long as it can just slip on over top and have an open bottom.
Anybody use anything like I'm describing? Who makes one? And of course how much um cost?

And if all else fails when I typed "bike covers" into Google it brought up 446,000 results in a quarter of a second.

Yep, a tarp works great, it's cheap and covers both.

I use "Bike Pajamas" - they can be found at Amazon - Amazon.com: Kool Stop Bicycle Pajamas Bike Cover: Sports & Outdoors

And your bike will get a good nights sleep.
