We put a RV cover on our class B for one winter before we built our garage. That was the year we had more snow than any other place in the country. Everything was fine when we took it off in the spring.
Sorry I don't have the brand available - but it was $380.00!!!

I had an "Elements All Climate" that came with the new class C I bought 5 years ago. It lasted very well for the 4 harsh winters I used it. As suggested here I made sure all the corners and pressure locations were covered with a good thickness of cloth. in my case I bought some cheap bath towels and taped them up as needed. My plan was to buy a new cover for this coming winter. I bought a new Class C and this one didn't come with a cover. I went to buy another "Elements All Climate" it seemed a bit thinner. So after some research, and seeing the prices about the same, I bought an ADCO Designer all weather cover. We'll see how this works. I live in the Southern New England where we tend to get very slushy heavy snow/rain that flash freezes, along windy conditions.

I think a proper RV cover is a good idea and used one years ago on a smaller Trailer. It helps keep it cleaner and protected to a point. I used a blue tarp one year just on the roof and a bit over the sides. It did not work out well at all. Scuffs the finish and doesn't breath at all. Did more harm then good perhaps.
I want to cover my 5th wheel but at 36 feet I don't think I can do it alone. I don't really have anyone nearby to help with hauling it up on to the roof. The covers can be heavy and unmanageable for one person who is at retirement age.
