Travel trailer cover install without standing on roof

Is there a travel trailer cover that can be installed without standing on the roof of the TT? Using ladders perhaps...

I have an Elements All-Climate cover for our 26-foot TT. I donít climb on the roof but I enlist my sonís help. We each get on a stepladder on either side of the rig and put the rolled-up cover across the front roof. Then, just unroll it down the trailer toward the rear, over the AC, vent cover etc. Obviously, you have to get down a couple of times to move the ladders rearward, but it goes quickly. We just reverse the process when we uncover it so itís in position for next year. As someone mentioned in a similar post, watch out for the skylights, which can get brittle with age and crack.

I could not walk on my previous TT but still manage to cover it using a ladder. I found the best method was to have it rolled up length wise and with the roll wide enough so as you enrolled it you're able to grab the cover to pull it down over the sides once you have it fully unrolled. You just have to make sure when you're roling it up it has the correct orientation so you end up with front/back and inside/out correct after you unroll it. You don't want to end up with the cover unrolled and the front of the cover at the back of the trailer or the inside of the cover facing out.
