It might just be worth talking to a sailmaker about having a custom cover made?

When I recently took my sails in for a check over and an extra line of reefing points, we also briefly chatted about covers. It seems that it should be possible for a sailmaker to produce a polycotton (but not a pvc) cover at a competitive price, with the added advantage of being able to tweak the design. A bespoke cover could be made to fit around a genoa furling drum, for example, which is the one aspect of my cover that I would seek to improve.

Of course it’s also possible that a cover maker like Rain and Sun would be willing to tweak their design for you…
