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.

TOWTA loaded all but of her sweat shirts in preparation for wintering in FL. Just have to load the perishable food items, new folding table, check the tire pressures, hook up and head south. I think she might be getting anxious as we won't leave until Fri after Thanksgiving unless it gets down in the 30's at night here in Concord.

Thanks, I can't take credit for the idea but did change a bit on the mounting.
Fence posts and caps came from HD and the gutters (trays) came from Lowe's.

Yes, you may copy with no compensation. LOL
