IMO, covers are nice. With a new paint job, I don't think I would do that unless it is the only covering I had to use. I have heard a lot of guys saying it can scratch up paint with moving from wind blowing. As I said IMO.

You can look into portable carport. They cost more than a cover, but can protect to a certain extent without possible scratching new paint.

Some samples

A cover will scratch a new paint job. I'd look around see if you can rent a garage near by.

If you have to park a newly painted truck outside, make sure after the paint cures, you have it ceramic coated. It will last a year, and protects against UV, rain, snow etc. like wax on steroids.
