Oh oh!! me me!!!
I had this EXACT issue with my extremely fat, extremely wide no wither percheron mix. Nothing fit him, Draft saddles still had too much of an angle of the bars to sit comfortably.
I ordered an aussie saddle from downunder saddlery, they have a line called Kimberly that is very cheap (my leather outback model saddle cost $350, and it is an awesome saddle, it oils well, stands up to abuse, and looks gorgeous). They have synthetics too. You send them the measurements and 'wither tracing' s of your horse from different sections of it's back, they fit you a saddle.
But having a horse like this I've come to learn means all saddles will roll and move around. There's no escape! No breast collar, no saddle pad, no cinch will stop it, but some will help. Good luck!!
