Pulled the trigger on a Challenger cart! Cover???

I am not nearly talented enough to create some of the beautiful carts/tables you folks have posted.  Therefore I had to take the commercial route.  I have been researching and scouring the web for options.  The challenger large for my XL seems to be my best option... Now I am impatiently counting the days (will take about 4 weeks) for my new table to arrive.  

Do you Challenger owners cover your carts?  Or leave it out to the elements?

    I never took shop class in school, and i have been having to pay for stuff my whole life, because of it. I am also looking at challenger cart for my large, but i have not pulled the trigger yet. What options did you get? Color? How much?

    My table is not a Challenger, but I cover it when not in use.  I know it's stainless and I don't have to, but it's nice not to have to clean snow and ice off in the winter.  I had John at Coverworks custom make me one and he did a great job.  You can get his contact information on the Naked Whiz site.

    When I bought my Challenger cart it was put to me this way.

     

    "This cart will last you a long time. If you take care of it and cover it, it will last even longer. When things are exposed to elements, they deteriorate much faster.

    Congrats on the new cart. Take some pics when it comes in.

    I have resigned myself to that... Now I am deciding between a custom cover or the aqualon one.

    Replaced my wood table for my large BGE with a Challenger cart a year ago.  Being in NW Wisconsin I deal with ice and snow about 5 months a year.  I settled on a custom cover from www.grillwraps.com made out of Sunbrella.  Custom made for the egg.  Reinforced over the dome and has straps/clips on all four sides so hardly moves in the wind.  Used the egg all winter, no snow under the cover at all.  Many colors available, Forest Green is a match for the egg.

    Check out some ATV covers. Many are big enough to cover larger tables.
    Mike, did you ever get the umbrella bracket on the table?
