Cover for my 365Saqb

Purchased my 5th wheel this summer and now need a cover. It seems that no one makes a cover to fit my camper. Specs say it's 41'7" but when I measure it's 42' from front to back edge. Add another 10" for the ladder. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi. Hit the link below. It's a Camco cover and they have a 42' in the drop down menu. The cover works great and a great price. Bought for our 2013 365saq at 41'7" and the fit is great. There are not many covers out there for that size 5er.

Thanks for that link, might have to look at one for ours as well.
For some reason I had it in my head that there wasn't one that would fit the 365's.

There is another brand out there that makes one that "should" fit. I can't remember the name right off hand, but it was not a $3k custom made cover. I believe it was around $5-600 for an all weather reinforced cover.

Carver was the name of the covers, but they are now closer to $800

For the money the Camco one I put the link to above is great. The material is a little thinner than the ADCO covers but it beads water well and ultimately all I want is to keep the late fall and winter dirt off it. Wouldn't be without a cover.

How is that cover to store? My issue is I have my camper in storage and I would either need find a place to store it in the camper when we were out or find a way to leave it at the storage lot.

It comes in a storage string pull bag made from the same material as the cover. If you roll it up any way tidy it will actually fit back in the bag easily. I pull up the sides, back, and front onto the roof and lay them flat as possible. Fold it into the middle third of the roof from each side so it's about 3 ish ft down the center of the roof as it sits. Then roll it from the back to front as tight as I can. I bring the bag up with me , stand it on end as rolled, pull the bag down over it, tighten the pull chord and roll it off the roof cause it's heavy to carry to the ground. Yeh, getting it up there is a challenge but use gravity to get it down! It's about 3x3x3 when rolled and in the bag. A bit much to keep in the camper I think. I keep it in my garage for the summer.

I'd much rather spend the $ on the cover for the $40k plus camper and have it look great in the spring than have the winter weather beat on it and have to deal with that in the spring. It really does help.
