Yes could do that but when it's blown away in a gale and dented a few cars 600 will seem cheap

Home made RIB cover

I made my own after failing to find someone to make a decent cover. its made out of pvc coated cordura off ebay and stitched together with polyamide thread, again off ebay using a 120yr old hand operated singer sewing machine!
the cover has been great but did fade to grey within only a few weeks!
