I am open to suggestions if any forum members have a better suggestion.

It comes in 55" wide swaths, so my plan is to buy two pieces about 20" long, pay an upholstery shop to sew them together, and then I will do the rest of customizing myself. But that will be a project to put off til winter!
Thanks for the recommendation. I order most sewing supplies through Sailrite and like their selection. That Evolution looks nice. I just ordered an outdoor fabrics and covers sample book and will look forward to getting an idea of the weight, etc. Iím going to use your photos to help with patterning, so thanks for those, too. My mini-cover needs to be quick on/off since itís a daily driver (tho not so much in Covid times). Btw, their video on making a golf cart cover is terrific for the basics in patterning. I likely wouldnít get so detailed but good stuff to know:
