Check out peak tarps, they sell on ebay too. Their tarps are 1000 denier cordura nylon, its probably 5x thicker than sunbrella at a fraction of the price. They are heavy to store. They custom make each in the color you pick. I bought a 12x12 about 3 years ago and had them taper it 10' out to 12' to make a custom boom tent. I am probably going to pick up a second from them cut slightly different in a lighter color.

Thank you so much...I have a question in to them about how well the cover will hold up to our AZ sun. Most Cover companies will not guarantee theirs in the SW for 5 years even though they advertise 7.

My guess is the material will outlast the thread, UV is killer. Mine is holding up well but the black is faded, my next one will be lighter color for fading.

I have a like new taylormade cover that came with a west wight potter sailboat you can have for $100 shipped if you want it. They are over $200 new. Personally I think the cordora tarps are much better though.
