Weather Proof Cover for a Defender 110

Wondering if anyone knows a source to find a car cover that would fit a 110 that is waterproof. Purpose of this cover is for when I have the top off on my Tithonus and don't want to keep putting the top on and off. I don't want to use a tarp. I don't want a dust cover. I'm looking for a complete weather tight, water PROOF (not resistant) cover. Any leads would be appreciated.

Cheers!

With no top, you are not going to find much that will work. The cover needs to be very well tensioned to prevent pooling and collapse

Yep. That I'm aware of. But I'm interested to know if anyone knows of a good cover that may work. I can deal with tensioning it once I find one that fits.

How close are you to the coast? You might check with a marine canvas guy in Beaufort or Wilmington and see what they can come up with. it won't be cheap but they make boat covers all the time that keep boats dry don't see why a truck would be too hard. Something like this, $121.00 from Bestop.

Now that's what I'm talking about. Probably the best option I'd imagine could be to have one made. I may give that a shot and see what I can come up with. I'm in Wilmington. Any idea of who or what the company is that you were referring to?

I found a decent cover for my 88" for a jeep, has loops for a tie down and keeps the weather out. I paid around $80 for it and when it rips I'll get another. Amazon...
