Hi Ruckus. I had the cover made by a boat canopy manufacturer as a one off item. I explained what I wanted and he did the rest. I'm very happy with the outcome.

If you are looking for something specific here stateside, you might try Bobby Riddle at Riddle's Custom Upholstery. He makes a whole lot of stuff for Ural's, but can make just about anything you ask for. His craftsmanship is second to none, and his prices are quite reasonable, especially considering the quality and durability.

He's made my pooch pad, sidecar door, and an improved shovel cover. The windshield apron and a new bench seat are up next.

So Misses Donkeys is ready to embark from OK to NC with the Bonnie Hack. My father-in-law went to drive the rig up on the trailer and guess who hopped in....

Its a Neff LL, Chris (BMW EURO) put the front end together years ago. Drop him a note he makes all kinds of cool airhead & sidecar parts. - p

I was going to have a similar 'hole' cut into a new toneau cover, but my trimmer suggested just adding two zips to my existing travel toneau. Worked out great.

This shot is for kmroxo who wanted to see the length of the cargo hack. I think two dogs could fit here without a problem.

Thanks for that pic Donkeys! Now I just need to find a stand alone cargo box without a frame since I already have a full rig.

Mine is just a round zippered section too Mick. There is also one for the passenger. It has worked out well.
I was planning to meet up with you at Tuena last weekend, but didn't make it. It was too warm in my bed!

Warm? What's this thing called 'warm'? Kipper usually sleeps in the chair, It's his holiday home. This time he slept next to me in the tent! You did well to skip it.

Dingdingdingdingding! We have a winner! Never occurred to me to use zippers. Perfect solution!

Drone - The beauty is that if the weather turns really bad I can progressively 'zip' him closed so he has to squeeze his head out, but he is well-protected behind the windscreen. It also keeps him centred behind the screen so that he can't lean out and cop a stone or bug in the eye. The small vent on the fwd left of the tub has a plug on the inside, but is good for allowing some air (under ram pressure) to flow through the tub, keeping him cooler in summer. Took a long time to figure all this out, but 14,000 kms on, it seems to keep us both happy!

My wife found this bumper sticker/sign at Target's.... Just taped in into place to see what it would look like on hack. Sends and accurate message though. Now, it I could just collect a fee from my passengers; Murph and Dusty. :-)

On our way to the BMW Rally in Missouri, currently dodging thunderstorms in Ohio. As we pass thru Louisville KY on our way to Murray tomorrow, Barley will have completed 20,000 miles in the hack. I'm very proud of my little bug!

Stumbled on this pic. Sorry if 205, but the dog is priceless. Nice looking rig, too.
