Motorhome Cover or portable garage?

We are preparing for our first winter with out Georgetown 357 and are wondering whether to go with an RV cover or a portable garage. We usually get about 50 - 80 inches of snow during the winter so I'm a little concerned about whether the portable garage would hold up for a winter.

I am interested in others experiences with covers or portable shelters.

I am in the same situation with a new 357 & will probably put it in a farmers barn for the winter. Check around & see if there are any farms in your area or close to you where they are empty during the winter. They get cold but your rig is out of the weather.

Where is the suction hose to run the RV antifreeze through the rig? I can't seem to find it.

If you guys are from Canada you surely get more snow then us in the states. I'm in New Jesrey and I had an RV port put up to keep all that bad weather off of our 2008 Georgetown 378. I already had roof problems and leaks and had it all repaired at the factory..never again.
Fine someplace to cover it for the winter or better yet take a trip to Florida, it gets a little chilly but no deep snow stroms...
Good Luck . Joe
