Cover Recommendations Needed

I have some questions regarding covers for my new 17' Coachmen Clipper. It will be stored under the trees and wife says going without a cover is not an option due to stains from pollen, decaying leaves, etc on our prior popup .

* Most of what I find at the camping stores is size based only and not specific to my model. Is that sufficient?
* We live in the northeast with moderate snow (typically 2-3 feet accumulation before mid-winter thaw). Is there any issue with the cover tearing under snow load around the A/C for generic covers? I assume model specific covers would take the A/C into consideration.
* Should I use a snow rake to remove significant snow accumulations or just let if be for the winter?
* Any material type or brand recommendations? Effectiveness is the primary concern with cost a secondary factor.
* Is it bad for the roof to climb on it to put the cover on or must I do everything from a step ladder?
* Is it a bad idea to cover the tongue with a tarp to reduce rusting?

We are not in an especially windy area so I assume finish burnish problems I've read about in this forum are not a significant concern. I've found some great tips about padding around the down spouts and other protruding points, etc. Other tips welcome.

Wish I had an answer but I have all the same questions as I'm trying to find one for our '16 salem 26tbud.

Just purchased online from ADCO. A previous purchase for our tt at our seasonal site has been wearing well over the past few years....northern ontario minus 40 F and lots of snow. This new purchase for Rockwood ROO 21RS was based on length....a bit long but extremely well made and priced. Key factors for this purchase included venting, and thicker roof coverage. As well, well designed for tight cinching ability front and back despite extra length.
Would recommend this company...and free shipping within US and priced better than retail.
