Ever wonder why ordering enclosures is sometimes a painful process? Well unlike the auto industry that uses standard parts across various models the golf cart industry is not as standardized. This makes purchasing aftermarket accessories a real headache. If you have called to order a Sunbrella® Enclosure the first question after determining which cart you have (Club Car, EZGO, Yamaha) the very next question is “What top does it have?” if you don’t know what type of top you have usually we will request that you take a photo and send it to us so we can determine what type is currently installed on your cart. With the advances in technology this is generally the easiest way to proceed since most phones by default can now take and send photos. To give an example on how many options are out there I found this old catalog that shows some different options for a Yamaha G9 and the various tops you can find installed on that cart:
Now this is just an example of one make and one model now think about all the different models of Yamaha golf carts that are out there and the combinations of tops you will come across. That is why it is so important to know what tops are out there because if you order an enclosure for a different top it will not line up with the front tops supports and will not sit right in the rear. If you ever have any questions about what top your customer may have as always feel free to give us a call or take a photo and send us a quick email and we will help you make the right decision when it comes to the correct enclosure for your cart.
