I'd be interested in your design Walter. I'm looking for the exact same thing to cover my Trail-Air pin box.

Will do Richard - waiting for the material to come on now. The front "bib" will look like this...

Drilled and tapped my 2 spare awning motors to accept the stow strap lock I use when towing to keep the awning from unrolling while in transit.

Replaced the woefully inadequate screws holding, actually not holding, the aluminum track for the sliding door between bed and bathrooms. Also replaced the too short screws in the door bottom guide and moved the stop screw to where it should have been. My next planned project is to add an inside AC power switch for the water heater. It will be lit when in the on position.

Planted my flags to the front of my rPod using silicone as "glue" and plastic zip tied a solar spot light to the tongue.

You might contact BigJohnD - he created one and may be able to supply templates:

Washed/waxed the TT and TV, filled the propane tank, sanitized the water tank/system, reinstalled battery and shot a blown fuse in the converter (not going to say why it wasn't checked first) for our upcoming trip. After all of this plus the yard work there can be no argument I need a vacation.
