Moving a Winterized Trailer

We have a 2012 Forest River Heritage Glen QBud Travel Trailer.
Last winter we winterized it and set it back on the property. Our winter has been very cold averaging temperatures in the -30's with about 3 feet of snow around the trailer.
We have just been informed that we will have to move it. We have made arrangements for someone to come and shovel out the snow but we have some concern over moving it while it is still cold and frozen. Is it safe to do so or could be incur cracking problems that could lead to leaks later on.
Any help would be great.
Thank you

I wouldn't see an issue moving it .
I would defiantly remove snow from roof !
Don't forget a jack and tools incase theres a flat on the unit .

Be very careful removing the snow from the roof. Plastic is very brittle in the cold and the last thing you want to do is damage anything up there like roof vents, AC cover, fridge vent, antenna, black tank vents. Make sure you bring your battery along for the trailer brakes.
