    I refuse to pay $80.00 or more for a slip cover to keep the rain or snow off my cab when getting out the door to my car.

    Thanks.

    For an Eden 410xlt
    $40 for a non padded cover
    or $65 for a padded cover.

    or you can go to Walmart and buy the material for about 6 bucks if you know someone who is handy with a sewing machine and a pair of scissors.
     
  3. My wife has made me several covers for my cabinets through the years. The material is very inexpensive to buy at a local sewing store. It cost me about 10 bucks in materials and an hour of sewing for two 210 xlt's
    Try a local seamstres or friend that sews!

    Try Carvin.

    I have 2 Eden 2X10s and the Carvin covers fit almost perfectly.

    They are thin, but strong (not padded). $19 each.

    Check the dimensions on the 4x10 and take a look.

    peace

  5. Likewise on the "make your own"

    my wife and I made 2 (for a 112 and a 410) for about $6 - padded vinyl, no less. Go to Joann.com and sign up for thier mailing list - they'll send you a 50% coupon right off. Joann carries the same material that most of the other covers are made of, and in all different colors too.

    Another vote for Lecover.

    I received good covers, good price, good service.
     
  7. A cab cover does more that protect it from the elements. If you move your gear alot you are bound to bang your cab into a doorway etc. I'd rather spend a few extra dollars to protect my cabs and keep them cosmetically in good shape. I have a padded Tuki cover for my SWR 8x8 and it's worth every penny I spent.

    I'm resurrecting this thread to say that I just received a custom-made cover for an Avatar cab from Larry LeCover.

    It cost 39.95 (plus shipping)....fits and looks great! High recommendations for LeCover.

    you guys are motivating me about the "self-made" covers...
    *looks down the hall*
    "hey dear...can you dust off the sewing machine??"
    "PLEASE...."

    If you're not much of a seamstress, www.undercovernyc will make a cover to your specs. Your choice of padding (heavy, light, or none), and even a logo option.

    If you're only looking for function, buy a packing blanket from U-Haul, and use a tie-down strap to wrap it. It did the job for me years ago when I did roadwork.

    well...I took some of the advice here and I found some padded/lined black vinyl in a fabric store here in Austin for cheap(3.88/yd)...so for $15 I got enough to cover all three of my cabs. Now the tough part---getting some professional help to piece it together (my wife:) )
    wish me luck...
