My wife has been busy, she made this cover for the Drakart. It is cloth backed vinyl, really heavy and gotta be waterproof. This should keep the seat and everything else dry. It is attached with straps that velcro back onto themselves, and flies that open and then close over the nerf bars and irrors. It may be heavy enough to not need so many straps, but they are on there, so I will use them.

The first attemp was a small car cover, but it was not right at all, we cut it apart trying to make something of it, then she decided to start from scratch and this is the result.

The blue cover is the pattern she made, then tore it apart to make the final product.

Very Very Nice...

Let me guess this is your reward for putting the trailer up for sale ????

So how many orders are needed until she starts production ?

Actually, she made it per Ted's request, I was just the beneficiary of the prototype. The next one looks even better, on second thought, Ted gets the prototype and I get the proven product.

If you can get her to make another one, send her the check.

She just asked me if Drakarts are all the same, and of course I told her the earlier models are a bit smaller.

I don't know if these would fit, maybe, maybe not, the Formula Cross and Xtreme are a bit smaller, might just make for a looser fit, might be too sloppy a fit.

Just out of curiosity, what would one of these be worth? The material is nearly a hundred bucks, that and a lot of labor.

Prolly whatever I'm willing to pay! ;-P

You'd have to name a price since I would never want to insult you or your wife! No clue on my end.
