Iím considering making my own cover for the RIB, the existing one only covers the console and seats so doesnít stop it filling up with rain, leaves, dead birds, stray cats etc.
Question is, what should I make it from?
Iíve measured it up and figured out the shape, ideally Iíd like to come up with a material I can Glue rather than sew. My friendly upholsterer has offered to sew it up to my pattern but Iíd rather keep the cost down.
Iíll include ventilation flaps etc, so breathe-ability of the main area is not an issue, although the bits that wrap around the tubes may need to be different.
Another thing Iíd like opinions on, is over the A-frame or around the bottom of it?
Iím thinking of using a flap to go around the bottom of the legs and lower the overall height, reducing the chances of the wind tearing it to pieces. I can make a small cover to wrap around the various bits of kit atop the frame but donít think it necessary.
However a cover that goes over the A-frame produces a large tent structure that aids ventilation and with a door flap in the back would allow access without the hassle of uncovering it each time, or even a cosy nest away from the wife!
