    Curious if anyone has found a maker for ZTR covers. I know W.E. Chapps has them, I just wondered if there were any other options? We use an open trailer and buying an enclosed one at this point isn't an option. But I would like something to keep the mowers dry, especially the newest one ;) I'm looking for something a bit higher quality than a blue poly tarp :)

    BTW, To anyone using the W.E. Chapps cover's, how do you like them?

    For you, I think the answer is easy. Any good customer boat cover maker can bang out a very high quality cover in SunBrella canvas or something equally good with little difficulty. If you order several, I would think you'll get a break on the unit cost. In Florida, there is probably a decent cover maker on every other block.

    Funny you mention that. My mom called me yesterday and suggested the same thing :) I guess they had a cover made for their boat recently and she gave me the name of a couple places that did really good work.

    I'm going to check with a place here that makes boat covers. If that's too much, I'll look into the car cover places. Thanks for the replies :)

    I purchased an ATV cover that will fit my steiner well. The other one I looked at was a snowmobile cover.

    Just an Idea.

    Looks pretty good. I wonder if it would cover my whole mower, deck and all?
