2012 georgetown 378xl

Have purchased our first motorhome and are from canada . Has anyone in severe cold and major snow areas had experience with full covers and removing them mid winter to head south ? Saw at camping world a generic 38 foot cloth cover . Looks like a monster to install and possibly a huge problem to uncover when it is well below zero . Any thoughts ?

We have owned 3 different class A motorhomes. Living in Iowa, we tried a good quality cover for 1 of our units. They are a "bear" to use as they are heavy and taking them off in the winter is difficult and a bit dangerous if there's snow/ice on the roof. The next problem is what to do with a large, heavy, snow/ice coated RV cover when you take it off in the middle of winter? We got about 3 years out of the cover before it shredded. We gave up on the cover idea and built a motorhome pole building. Best thing we ever did, we consider it money well spent. Of course we realize not everyone has 6 acres so you may not have the building as an option. Good luck with whatever you decide!
