This winter coming up will be my first winter with storing travel trailer. How difficult is it and are there any tips that can be suggested about putting the cover on your trailer? I know they're not light and have seen some devices you can buy to hoist your cover to the top of trailer provided you have an attached ladder (which I don't have).
They are a PIA to put on but well worth the effort in protecting the outside. If you have the raingutter that hang off the sides, you may want to put something over them. I used those swimming pool noodle things that helped, but eventually it ripped through and now the cover is toast. Need to replace cover now and will probably just cut the gutters off so it will not rip-apart another $400 cover.
I keep my cover on at all times. It only takes me 20 minutes to get it on/off. It's a heavy sucker, but I just throw it over my shoulder and climb up the ladder with one hand (not as easy at it sounds; haha) As one of the posts above said, if you fold it right when you take it off, it basically unfolds itself. I think it's well worth it, but as previously stated, you have to cover ALL sharp edges, as they will most definitely wear holes in the cover.
