Question Towels that cover the sunpad?

Does anybody have a good connection where I can get towels large enough to cover the ENTIRE sunpad/hatch? The bigger the better! Prefer a solid color.

I bought several 60x72 that are just not big enough....

My wife buys two large and sews them together. Works great.

I have sewed a few together as well, just wondering if there was an easier way....

My wife sewed them together with linen tie straps on the corners so you can tie them to the rails. Wind nor heavy foot can lodge them from the pad.

I have one that goes from the back of the sunpad clear down the back seat.Terry cloth that you can get in 6'-8' width and you just cut length and bind the whole way around it.sew in elastic loops where your cleats are and it will hold it in place.I'll try and find out where i got the material.

Hmm, maybe a good business for a talented seamstress A few of the gals in LEOPA made covers similar to a fitted sheet for their engine pads. They made them in a heavy towel-like terry cloth, and love them. I bet that is what you are looking for. I just don't think you will be able to get towels to that job without sewing some type of elastic on a diagonal at the corners
