They'd rather sell you the expensive cover than paint it for you cheaper.

Why not paint it yourself? It will be far cheaper than buying one and with some patience and a little reading up on painting plastic it will come out looking just as nice as a professionally painted cover.

Paint will stick when properly prepped. I have over 12,000 miles on my cover since painting it and have no problems.

Here is a link to my cover project and a photo of the finished cover.
