Carver does advertise larger covers than ADCO and my advice to you would be to take a look at them. I believe they have a 42 footer that should do just fine.

If I remember correctly I was quoted around $800 for a 42 foot custom made premium soft cover.

My carport is 41 feet long x 18 feet wide x 14 feet side wall height at the top. The walls extend down 6 feet from the top on each side. It is all painted 14 Ga. Steel. Roof is painted Desert Tan to match my House. Side walls are white. No wall in front or rear. I purchased the Carport locally which for $3,300 installed.

I bought my cover at Walmart last fall. I had an Adco 40' cover from my old 5er and it would not fit. It is currently rolled up and put away. I will try to get the manufacturer and other data off of it tomorrow and will post it. I paid less than 300.

Was able to get data off of the cover. It is a Camco #45759 fits 40-42 footers. I ordered it online from Walmart after searching websites and contacting the regular manufacturers. Paid about 300 vs the thousands I was quoted by ADCO for a custom made. At that price I can go thru several cheaper than one from Adco.

If you choose to purchase this product I would read some of the reviews that have been posted. I do not own this cover nor do I know any one who does. I would be wary of purchasing a product that was substantially lower in cost and also has low reviews.

I own the camco cover, and it has been flawless so far. Fits perfect, doesn't flap, and it was only $279. Even if it only lasts 3 seasons (which I expect to make it to 3 easily) I could buy 3 of them for the cost of one custom one.

I will try to post pics of it soon.

Kris,

Great pics and thanks a million for posting. We just received our 2014 Sandpiper and would like to purchase a cover for it. This camco cover will do exactly what I want and like you said, even if it only lasts 2-3 seasons that is well worth the cost.

Thanks again
