Winter cover

I live in eastern canada so get some snow and ice. What do you recommend for a winter cover for my travel trailer?
I see some by Expedition on E-bay and also Tyvek from camping world and Deluxe Poly Pro III from J C whitney. Any suggestions?

Something like these:

Outdoor Canopy, Portable garage, Car Shelter | Canadian Tire

But big enough to cover the trailer.

Anything that drapes over the body is going to rub the edges and scratch/wear them. Not to mention hold in moisture/humidity...

We have one of the tyvek covers. No problems with scratches or wear. They breath so no problems there either.
Make sure you pull the straps tight when you put it on...no flapping that way.

It snowed here this morning and the snow lasted until later this afternoon. Groan. I guess it might be time to winterize here as well.

I looked at the link great white offered but none of those are tall enough (Ours is over 12 feet), and ouch look at the price. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to simply build something more permanent.

I just ordered the tyvec from a site that was much cheaper than camping world.....toyboxcovers.com. They also gave me free shipping and handling and threw in four tire covers....check them out.

I live in Eastern Ontario and used one of the Adco covers for our TT for 5 years. My parking spot for the trailer put it under a couple of large spruce trees that continually dropped needles. When I took the cover off in the spring the unit looked as good as it did in the fall. After 5 years of use the cover looked almost as good as the day I bought it. I am sure when I sold the trailer the winter cover helped to preserve it's value.

I've also been pricing covers. I was pricing the ADCO Designer series. Here are a few good choices based on price:

ToyBoxCovers.com (as of now they are offering free tire covers)
PPLMotorhomes
RV Wholesalers (best price)
RV Stuff USA

A newfi here in Ohio and I purchased my cover from toyboxcovers.com last week. Arrived 2 days ago with the free wheel covers which are very high quality. The overallprice was even cheaper than Camping world. I recommend it.
