John, are you going to use a strap and buckle at the back to keep it on?

Our new crusader came with a plastic molded aerodynamic one. Wraps around top and both sides. The underside is open where the kingpin is. It will definitely protect the pin box from the elements and sun.

We have a pin box shroud, too- but have a regular king pin, not a TrailAir. You?

Reg pin. Nothing fancy! I have no complaints with it but also have nothing else to compare to either.

That's the thing, though - I've never seen a cover/shroud for the TrailAir pin boxes.

And- agreed, I've only had this one camper with a fixed pin. Does well enough. Though, I do lust after a trail air!

On this one, the bottom will just have grommets to secure it. I'm sure if I did another, I might would do buckles. Some like the plastic shrouds, I just don't care for them. Don't like the looks of them. I have seen the plastic shrouds trimmed out for a Trail-Air, but then it defeats the purpose. I guess I'm in the small percentage of people that likes things that most don't. I love projects like this anyway. One off projects make good conversation pieces in a campground. One of my favorite things to do is compare notes and projects with other campers. You always find some sort of one off custom item somebody has made, usually better than a big manufacturer. Kind of like my daughters gooseneck trailer for her power wheels (in my photo album). Nobody made one, and I knew she'd want a trailer like dad's. It's got a lot of attention in some campgrounds and struck up plenty of questions and conversations. Always makes you feel good when you can say, I made that.

Trail Air TriGlide Pin Box Soft Cover - Final Product

So here it is. My new one off pin box cover. It's made from a very thick chocolate brown colored vinyl. I would probably make a few changes here and there, but overall it serves its purpose, and I like it. Right now it has about 8 grommets underneath with the small bungees, but if I did it again, I'd probably do it with adjustable snap buckles.

Very nice! Maybe rare earth magnets rather that straps? A lot of steel to hold on to.

Nice mod. Velcro straps would be quick also.
