Cover suggestions for Rockwood 8289 ws

It's time to put the Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8289 WS fifth wheel into storage for the winter and we want to get a cover for the unit. As I was researching, I noticed some comments about the height of our unit (148+" without the airconditioner, according to the Forest River literature).

That presents a bit of a problem, in that most of the covers I have seen fit units up to 126".

Has anyone purchased a cover and found it didn't fit properly because of the height, or has anyone found a cover that fits a Signature Ultra Lite?

Have the same unit 8289 & 32' long, purchased this cover from Amazon:

(Classic Accessories OverDrive PolyPRO 3 Deluxe Extra Tall 5th Wheel Cover or Toy Hauler Cover, Fits 33' - 37' RVs - Max Weather Protection with 3-Ply Poly Fabric Roof RV Cover (75963))

and it is in use for the 2nd year. I bought it some what over size (33 - 37') because most of the time I'm putting it on/off by myself. The oversize covers well but does require extra tie downs because of the extra cover material & after trying to button everything up this year I think I would have been better off with the 29 - 33' size. The height is 140" in both cases & covers the A/C with no problem. I did go around the RV with a file (for the metal edges) & sand paper for the plastic, no question I would have torn the cover without knocking off the edges by pulling & adjusting during installation. Hopes this helps................. Caltraveler
