    5th-wheel hitch covers . . . anyone make them?

    I'm debating if I want to take my 5th-wheel hitch out of the back of the truck for the winter or maybe try to find a cover to put over it to keep the snow off of it.

    I have a tarp big enough, but they always flap in the wind and make a lot of noise.

    As would a large garbage bag . . .

    I looked on Camping World's website and they don't seem to carry anything . . .

    Does anyone know if there is such an item made?

    Measure it up and go look at barbeque grill covers. Should be able to find one with a elastic around the bottom that will fit real well...Don

    Hitch up to the trailer, pull pins on the hitch rails, raise the trailer and drive away, leaving the hitch on the pin Under the trailer cover.. Wrap plastic bag around it if you feel you need more.

    If you want it to fit like a glove, go see a boat/awning cover business. They will custom fabricate and would be less likely to flap in the wind. I use a sliding topper that clears the hitch and slides out of the way to tow; locks it too.

    Thanks for the ideas and links.

    I've looked through the links and found one I may be interested in.

    I also like the BBQ grill cover idea . . . never thought of that!

    There is also a canvas company about a mile from my house and I may stop in there to see what they can do as well.

    Ya I know I was just giving you an idea of where and how much $$$
    A place like that can custom make a cover to cover what ever you want. !!!!
