Airstream window cover reviews
She does fantastic work and was wonderful to work with. We did our own install but Melanie walked us through the whole process. A++++. - Sherie J.
We had her make one for our Basecamp. Awesome product and she installed it for us in just over an hours time. I recommend her to everyone! David V. I’m a newbie BC 16X owner and one of the first investments I made was to order a CoolCustom window cover from Melanie Leslie. She was fantastic to work with and helped solve a small problem I had by shipping me a brand new cover with the problem fixed free of any charges. I love the cover; it's a high quality product, and you can rely on Melanie to stand behind it. Highly recommend! Having the front windows securely covered gives me great piece of mind. - Anne A. She made one for our 2018 16 BC, which did not have rock guards. The cover is lightweight, easy to install and thick enough to protect from flying debris. - Mel S.
We have one also, prefer it to the dark panels that came with our 20X. - Karen M.
Melanie Leslie has completed our new traveling clothes for our Basecamp 20. Our experience has been very good with her service. Big John (our BC’s current name) seems to like it after our 3 1/2 hour journey home through the rain. The marine grade materials are top notch. I didn’t want the 3” of extra height, nor the added hitch weight of the rock guards and window guards as well as the extra cost that come with the X package. Cost was less than one of the X window guards. - Karl B.
We were looking for a solution to protect the front windows while driving and through the previous owner of our used 2018 Basecamp 16, we found Melanie Leslie’s business, Cool Custom Canvas. She makes covers in multiple colors for the windows that come out beautifully and we were able to install in about an hour. (Her website says she does Cushions too.) Wanted to share in case it helps anyone... Otto L.
Bra installed today. Highly recommend Melanie Leslie. The process was quick and easy and no problem shipping to Canada. Excellent quality!! Made to fit perfect. Wonderful to work with! - Michelle S.
We had this cover made for our front windows. After reading about others who have had their front windows shattered due to rocks we felt like it was an important upgrade. The rock guards AS sells also crack and darkened the interior of the BC more than we liked. The materials and workmanship are excellent and we thought others maybe interested. She used boat cover/awning fabric, lining is a thick, soft fabric that goes against the windows. Snaps all the way around and has Velcro on the sides for a perfect fit. No wind kicking up, in or around the cover. It stays flat and tight against the windows. Our experience and the product we received was excellent. - Theresa B.
We ordered a snap-on rock guard window cover from Melanie Leslie. Had seen a fellow BaseCamp owner who had ordered and installed one of her covers. All hardware and instructions for us to install were shipped with the cover. Was a little intimidated drilling that first hole, but turns out it wasn’t hard. Her instructions were easy to follow. Installation took a couple hours. Next time around … would go faster. ☺️ If you are concerned about tackling it yourself, Melanie does offer to install the cover if you bring your BaseCamp to her, for an additional small fee. She is near Nashville. Her workmanship is excellent! She has been great to work with! - Barbara M.

marine canvas & sail repair reviews
A family of squirrels nested in my Pearson 30 mainsail over the winter and chewed massive holes in it. This was very upsetting of course, but thankfully I brought my sail to Melanie and she quickly and expertly repaired it. It's ready to go sailing again. I'm extremely happy with the work and will definitely be going to Melanie again for any future work. - Andy G.
I've worked with a lot of service people over the years, and it's obvious to me that Melanie knows what she's doing. She finished my project on time and I was very please with the work. - Steve Melanie made several canvas items for my 28' O'day that I recently purchased, including a new UV cover for the jib sail, mainsail cover, new bimini and bimini boot, and a small compainionway cover. All of it turned out great and I'm so hoappy with how my boat looks now! -Kyle
Melanie is definitely the person you should hire to handle any canvas work for your boat. She created a custom cover for my Stingray to keep it protected from the sun. Melanie took the time to listen to me and understand exactly what I wanted, and the results are fantastic. Thank, Melanie! -Matt
I bought my pontoon boat about a year ago and had Melanie replace the old worn out bimini top with a new one. Boy, what a difference! The top looks great and was definitely a worthwhile upgrade. Melanie is great to work with. She ensured the color choices were discussed in detail. She communicated well and delivered on time. The quality and fit look amazing. I would absolutely recommend her. -Darla
I run Central Tennessee Marine Service in Hermitage, and I hired Melanie to make a full cover for my Sunesta power boat. I was very pleased with the quality of work and have already given her hame out to other customers needing canvas work. -Scot Vickers at Central Tennessee Marine Service
The custom dodger Melanie created for my sailboat looks fantastic and fits great. I'm exceptionally happy with the dodger and the price was very reasonable. -David H.
It was a pleasure having Melanie complete the canvas work for my Harris deck boat. The bimini and cover she made for the boat have a fantastic fit. If you're looking for great custom canvas at a good price, you should definitely contact Melanie. -DennisMelanie made a cover for my SeaRay power boat, and it looks great! Everything was completed on time and with professionalism. Thank, Melanie! -Sally
I became aware of Melanie’s services when I had Sailors Moving Sailors transport my sail boat from New York to the Nashville area. The transport went seamlessly, and Melanie has created a couple of great items for me over the last few years – with real attention to quality and style. She made me a custom bimini frame and canvas for my sailboat, and also made a great cover for my 8’ hard dinghy. I’m thoroughly satisfied with all services from Melanie and Sailors Moving Sailors. –Steve O.
Having Melanie make a new, high quality bimini for our pontoon boat was stress free we couldn't be happier with the results. Melanie kept in communication with us throughout the process and did a fantastic job. I would definitely use her services again. -Judy
I’ve been sailing my J-30 in the Nashville area for a few years now, and I was thrilled to find a sail repair shop here in the local area. Melanie is 100% professional and reliable. She replaced the luff tape on my genoa, and the bolt rope on my main. The work was completed in the time frame she said it would be, and all the repairs turned out great. Don’t hesitate to call Melanie for any of your sail repair needs! -Jeremy O.
I heard of Melanie's excellent reputation for sail repair and canvas work, so when I purchased a new (used) sailboat with a heavily damaged head sail, I traveled all the way from Alabama to have her repair it and install a new UV cover. She also repaired a companionway drop cover for me. Melanie kept in communication with me throughout the process, accomplished the work on time, and for a reasonable cost. They both turned out great! I would definitely trust her again with any sail or canvas work I need." -Jim T.
I recently purchased a sailboat and wanted to really make it look nice. I asked Melanie to make new cockpit cushions and to re-do the interior cushions. She helped me pick out fabrics and colors that really made a difference - the boat looks fantastic. Thanks for the great work! - Joe
We lived in the Nashville area for years enjoying our 1988 Catalina 27 sailboat on a local lake. Just like anything on a sailboat, canvas items and sails occasionally need to be repaired and replaced. All of our canvas items were showing age and needed to be repaired or replaced. It didn’t take us long to be informed by other sailors that Sailors Moving Sailors, a sailboat transporting company with an excellent reputation, also offers custom canvas and sail repair services. They have over time replace our numerous worn out canvas items including – bimini, cabin cover, binnacle cover, and sail cover. They also repaired and restitched my sails on several occasions. Most recently they transported my boat to Southport, N.C. Sailors Moving Sailors are terrific people and I wholeheartedly recommend using their canvas and transport services. -Jerry R
We decided up update our Catalina 22 with completely new cushions. We looked into buying them from Catalina, but found they were quite expensive and very limited on color choices. Looking further, we found Melanie with Sailors Moving Sailors and discovered she could offer a reasonable price for the same cushions and use any fabric we chose. She made a full set of interior cushions and cockpit cushions - new foam and all. We chose a multi-colored striped fabric for her to work with. The end result was exactly what we wanted - a unique and bright interior. All the stripes matched up where they should, and the cushions fit just right. I highly recommend Melanie’s services. - Taylor
I would highly recommend Melanie for any canvas or sail repair projects. Melanie has skillfully and affordably accomplished multiple custom items for me over the years - sail repairs, custom hatch covers, life line covers, cushions, sheet bags, winch covers....and more. You can trust Melanie to do the job right. -Paul I brought two main sails to Melanie that needed some rips reparied and hardware replaced. She did an excellent job in fixing everything, and even identified some damage that I wasn't aware of and fixed that, too. She's very professional and has very reasonable pricing. I would trust her with my sails again anytime. Kevin I asked Melanie to create a custom cabin cover for my Catalina 22. She did a fantastic job. The cover looks great and is made to last. -Calvin
I ordered a custom bimini from Melanie for my pontoon boat. I was extremely pleased with the quality and the price of what I received. Also, the color she selected was a perfect match with my new upholstery. Great work. -Bobby
product hanger and dirt bike gear reviews
I came across Melanie Leslie and her family at her booth at the Wolf Slide Trail Ride in November, and saw her Steet Bike Mitts and ordered a set from her for my Suziki VStrom street bike that I use to run errands and commute on even in very cold weather unless it is snowing or icy.
I got them in and put them on my bke very easily and they fit perfectly. I got to try them out a day or so later in some 30 degree weather and they kept my hands toasty warm with the grip warmers on in spite of travelling down the interstate at 70 plus.
I am fixing to start a job shortly and they will make my commutes to and from work over the winter much better.
Great design, craftsmanship and materials. Will be buying another.. shipped quick also. - Marc B.
This holder is the perfect size for my trailer, and holds all the stuff cluttering up my trailer - oils, sprays, tools, gloves. Also, it's going to last FOREVER, very high quality materials and construction. - Dave S.
Wow! The stich work and materials on this product hanger are way cool. I don't think this organizer will ever wear out. I love the way it looks in my trailer. Thank you so much, I'm extremely happy with it. Jeff P.
