Anyone ever use Ann's Canvas in G.R.???Just looking for a little feedback before I go there. Heard a few good things and the price seems "in the ballpark" for a campertop.????????THANKS!!!!

I don't know about Ann's but I'am going to have Muskegon Awning make a fully enclosed bimini for my new AT. A friend of mine had a top made by them and it was totally first class. He ran 65 MPH frequently with the top up an no problems. They also make all the top for Powerquest.

Thumbs up

Lakeside Canvas in Muskegon is where you want to go- complete custom Sunbrella bimini and camper to my specs at a great price on my Active Thunder.
Crazyhorse recommended them, and will vouch for Ann's work as well.
I did a lot of research on canvas in that area before I went to her-did not hear many positives about Muskegon Awning.
I'll throw in a big thumbs up to Great Lakes Marina while I'm at it, because they allowed me to keep my boat in one of their buildings just down the street while Lakeside did their designing and fabrication. Great folks taking care of a local merchant!

Great to hear there are a few good options we need some racing covers made soon.

We got a full canvas cover from Ann's Canvas 2 seasons ago. We keep it on our boat all year round and outside during the summer. It has yet to fade and yet to show any wear and tear at all. They cut out holes for our cleat and "belly bands". They also did a custom wheel cover for our spare tire. They were recommended to us by Hi-Performance Marine just down the street from them.

Scott,
I had Ann's redo my covers on my Checkmate. The factory messed them up. So my dealer, Premier Motorsports, sent me there. Ann's does most of their work. I had a full cover and a cockpit cover made and I am real happy with them both. Nice people to work with, small shop but end product was great. I didnt pay for it so I dont know about pricing.. Good luck..

Dick

I can vouch for the top on jafo's boat. It turned out awsome.
