I just shipped my entire upholstry to Viper from NW Arkansas. It was about $250 one way. The dog house engine cover is big and the side panels are long so the crate ended up being 8'x4'x3'. And that's with one of the the side panels sticking about 18" over the end. If you just didn't send the biggest pieces, it wouldn't be so bad. I also used chip board to make a rigid box and you could try cardboard instead to save weight. For me, saving sales taxes and not paying extra for instalation more than made up for the shipping. Also, Viper was less expensive than the skin shops I checked. I will be posting pics in about a month when every thing is back and put on the boat.
