I have been seriously considering this cover. I finally realized the difference between the G2 and F1 or whatever they call it. I would definitely go with the cheaper one. I probably will not sit or stand on it and I will just not touch it so much when it is hot out. Obviously if you need to open it and it is hot, then you will need to use some gloves or something. The G2 will still probably be a little hot. I am from Texas so maybe when I move back I will upgrade.
I still have not decided, but thanks for all this information. It will definitely help.
