Trailer Cover for winter

Do anyone make truss or support on top of roof when you cover it with a RV cover for winter in order that snow dont cumulate in one spot and stress roof ??? Or is it better not to make any ??

I cover mine, and in Manitoba Canada we get as much snow as almost anybody. I currently have 7 padded ropes around the whole unit to minimize flapping and 6 used truck tires up top spaced out for the same reason.

I don't think you'll find anything commercially available to meet your "needs". Personally, I think if your going to use a cover in the winter, your best bet is to buy a quality cover (Goldline has a 5 year warranty but are fairly pricey) and secure it to your RV per the manufacturers instructions.
If you think about it, even if you have a sloped surface, the snow still accumulates if it's a sightly wet snow. A good example of this is the roofs on our homes. Here in Iowa, at least, we have snow on our roofs for several days/weeks after a wet snow.

I have the permapro by classic accessories. 3 years no rips no damage to my unit. Very light weight. When we have a lot of snow I use a 8 foot ladder and a broom.

trailer cover

I use the ADCO cover as it is designed for trailers, and I install it according to manufacture's instructions. This is it's second season--so far so good. We get lots and lots of rain but little snow.
