I posted some information about this many months ago but recently I was again asked about where I found the cover for my 712.

It came from a place called Wholesale Car Covers (http://www.wholesalecarcovers.com/) and their contact information is sales@wholesalecarcovers.com or 866-859-4880. The model number (for a 712) is EP-V2.

If you're looking for something to fit a 710, you'll want to go with a cover that will work for a Chevy Astro van. Cost for the EP-V2 was like $80 or $100 bucks as i recall.

I ended up getting a Tyvek cover on fleabay sized for an Astro van and it fit very well on my 710K. The hatch takes up a few inches, but the fit still ends up pretty much the same as yours at the bottom. The company that made it is 'Budge' in PA.

I wanted to try a Tyvek (the stuff they make house wrap, fedex envelopes, out of), mainly to keep the TX summer sun off. Tyvek is extremely light weight, packs tight, doesn't rip, doesn't absorb moisture, and is bright bright white, so we'll see how well it holds up. I've only had one occasion to get under it in a downpour when I left something in the Pinz, and it is indeed bone dry underneath. It's got an elastic band around the bottom, but I would imagine that when strong winds are anticipated, a ratchet strap around the middle might be a safe bet. $80 bucks can't be beat.

The bright white color is not very camo and might be considered a bit of an eyesore of it has to sit for all your neighbors to see, but I keep mine around back. If it lasts more than a year or two I will be happy and considerr it money well spent.

I've also had reasonable service out of Tyvek type car covers. I've bought a couple of used ones from Ebay and they've lasted a couple of years or so.

I've searched a bit, and haven't found a solid option for a 710K cover that's in a tame color, one that isn't bright.

Has anyone found a good option? Ideally something in a darker color, or gentle camo. Until then, it's polytarps.... :(

For those considering non-custom tarp options, I've found a 16x20 tarp is the optimal size.
