What types of rain covers have worked for those who have made their own gun carts (typically from a converted stroller)?

I realize that there will likely not be one size that fits all, but am interested in seeing what options are in use.

I've started using big, clear, trash bags to keep my stuff dry. Seems to work out just fine, and I can take several with me if needed (other peoples gear).

Thanks mark-60.

I should clarify that I am hoping to find a cover that will fit (reasonably well) over the guns and cart.

There are some golf bag covers that are built oversize. They are heavy duty clear plastic, big zipper, cordura backing. Not sure if they are big enough to accommodate what you have.

You could probably have one made by anyplace making boat covers?

Oversized contractor thick large black plastic garbage bags - the kind that fit in a 55 gallon drum

Maybe a 4'x4' (or so) waxed canvas tarp would be a good cover for the whole cart? I'm sure they can be found on-line.

You may want to contact an upholstery shop for something truly custom made.

Or just checkout the jogging stroller rain covers on Amazon...

Rugged gear sells their cart covers separately.

+1 on this. Cheap and easy to find. In fact a large garbage bag is my go-to Halloween costume. I cut head and arm holes in it and go as "white trash." MAJ

With my 32” O/U (51” long) plus some overlap on cart, many of the baby buggy covers are too short. Found one on Amazon that may be long enough. Plan B will be contractor bags.

Thanks all for suggestions!

Briley for gun cover slips and a canvas tarp (Home Depot) for cart. Both inexpensive and will do the job.
