Teardrop camper cover?

I am thinking ahead to later this year when my - hopefully completed by then - camper with sit idle for about 4 months while I take a paid vacation to the Mideast.  Ah, Dubai in the summer, lovely (not)

I'm wondering if anyone has created a cover pattern for the teardrop?  I have an idea that a local sail maker or seamstress, maybe somebody that sews up Bimini tops, could make something up for me.  I am asking CLC if they maybe coul d print out outlines of the outer shell panels for use as a pattern.  Just take the existing CAD files, enlarge them by 5%, and plot them using a large format plotter.  

Just thinking out loud here....

   You could probably make a pattern by laying craft paper over the facets and tracing the edges. I worked at a place that made aircraft covers and that's what they did.

   Yup, that's plan "B".  Thanks for putting it in writing though, it was just in my mind as "take measurements", using the kraft paper is a great idea.
