    5th Wheel Pin Box Cover

    I am looking for a 5th wheel hitch pin box cover to use while the RV is in storage and to keep the birds from building nests. I know there is a company called Hitch Vest but it is bulky for travel. Does anyone know of a canvas or neoprene cover that might have a draw string or zipper to cinch it closed? I have the Reese Airborne Sidewinder pin box (#61412), which is larger than the standard pin box, so, not even sure the Hitch Vest work fit anyway. A trash bag works for now but looks really bad.

    Check with your local awing or upholstery places and perhaps they can make you one, but from what I just saw on the Hitch Vest if you catch it on sale it might be a good deal.

    If your handy with sowing you could probably make your own out of vinyl. As for the birds nesting a bit of chicken wire wedged in the opening will solve that.

    I really like the chicken wire idea.

    Thanks, I could make a small metal plate for the front and back sides to cover the openings and held in place with magnets while in storage. Thanks, the chicken wire idea got the ball rolling with that thought but I will also try a waterproof laundry bag in the meantime until I fabricate the covers.
