Can the AI be covered?

Do they make a cover for the AI? Acorns have started to fall like little micro bombs from the massive oak tree in front of my house... Unfortunately, I can only park my interstate where they land. I have 3 options, buy a parking spot at $180+ a month, chop down the oak tree or find a cover.

The acorns shouldn't cause any damage.

There's a thread on the forum discussing covers and the problems they can cause such as paint damage.

Surprised that they let you park it in the street.

Glass half full or half empty to an engineer is simply a glass that was over designed.

A cover will do more damage than the acorns will, and would be a pain the the arse to put on every time you park besides, unless you really enjoy setting up a big stepladder in the street and trying to sling a dozen pounds of cloth over a ten-foot-tall van from on top of the ladder.

All you really have to do about the acorns is open the hood from time to time and get out any acorns, leaves, and twigs that get lodged in the upper corners. When you're camping, worse things will fall on it, such as pinecones or sycamore seed pods, but they won't damage the van, either.
