Covers for trailers

How do people get the ADCO covers on the roof? How much do they weight?

I use a CalMark cover on mine. 65 lbs. I throw it over my shoulder, climb a step ladder and place it on the roof. Then I climb up on the roof and roll it down the middle of the roof and flop the sides down over the edge. It's work but I was thrilled with the performance this past winter.

That's the way I do my ADCO, too.

It's bulky but not really a problem.

Ditto... It's heavy and awkward, but doable. Just don't try it on a windy day!

Camping World actually has a small winch that claps to the top of the ladder. I have no experience with the winch, but I have seen them on the shelf.

Mine came in a bag. Tied a rope around it and used the ladder as a slide to pull it up on.
