    I found my Otter clothe on sale for 5. 99 a yard but only able to order 6 yrds . Well found a company that had the non camo on sale for about the same price but shipping added a $1 to the yardage cost. I ordered 7 yrds of moca so!id color. That would give me a solid top with camo sides. I can sew a much heavier tear resistant cover for a fraction of the cost of a new one from JD. And it should fit better. When I'm ready I'll deconstruct the old worn out ripped one to make the new cover.
    There are some pretty good deals to be had out there. As long as you avoid cotton material and elastic

    Tarp from Harbor Freight. I use them to cover my lawn tractor. Some sizes are real cheap or free in their ads or buy the bigger ones with the 20% coupon.

    This is going to be a fitted cover for year around and transport. I still have the old cover for now. Gorilla glue tape on rips work well for now and the winch has a separate neoprene cover ...lol
    Tarps are great, read some of my post, I get quite creative with them...as long as they are NOT BLUE!

    Ps...I have a 11yr old cardboard and harbor freight blind that is still watercproof. The roof is cardboard wrapped in a tarp....I made it and am surprised it held up this long!
    Though this year it will get some up grades due to a nasty squirrel harvesting nest material.
