    Quality Full Cover for Solitude

    Has anyone found a cover first that fits the Solitude. I bought the largest Adco but it only went to 40'. I measure 41' 6" with ladder to nose. They said it wouldn't fit so I returned. We live in a windy snowing cold climate of Utah.
    Second that is made to stay on & not beat the trailer up in winds or get shredded like most of the ones I see on trailers.

    We purchased the Adco for our 369RL and it fits perfectly! We love having it at least covered since we don't have a garage that it fits in.

    After a lot of discussion with various folks in NM, we decided against the cover. The problem for us is sand. Apparently it gets up underneath the cover and as the wind blows, it acts like sandpaper against the trailer. I don't have room to build a garage for it, so we're going to stay on top of the waxing. At 5K feet, our primary concern is for UV damage.

    Thanks for the reply. Adco told me it would not fit & getting it back in a box for return was going to be impossible. Do you have the ladder on the back? Does it fit pretty tight in length since they say its only good for 40" 5th wheels? May also ask what you do with the gutters that project out to stop from cutting into the cover?
    Thank you again.

    I did a search for covers and found this one that I'll be purchasing.

    It's a bit pricey but will fit our 379. I can't tell you about the quality yet as I don't have it on.

    I read in another thread that you can put a tennis ball (with a small slit in it) on the end of the gutter extenders to keep the fabric from being cut.

    You can order an Adco custom cover from Camping World. Be aware that the cost is 3 times what the cost of the shelf cover is.

    The cover fits great. Thanks for your help. I used a 4" foam swimming noodle cut & drilled to cover gutters. Worked great .
