There was a chap on this website with "Access to an industrial sewing machine". He was asking for ideas, this came up but I don't think we heard from him. Possibly the number of requests for just such a 'cover' was too much for him to complete? Cheers, Tony.

I was looking at this from Reimo. Price isnt' too bad and seems quite a good solution.

Or, you could just buy a toilet tent for 36.99...
they seem a bit pointless and overpriced to me.

You'd surely be better off with a large frame tent or a decent awning... I:

There was a guy selling them at Vanfest. Seems a good idea if quick to put up and down, but his looked very dark and dingy in my opinion. Needed some window panel or lighter material. And pricey. A quick erect gazebo is bigger, just as stable in the wind, a quarter of the price and can be left in position when you drive off! I:
