RV Covers

As much as we hate to admit the time is drawing close for us to consider winterizing our RV. We live at 6000 feet in Colorado so will soon see snow. Can't escape so have to protect the MH. Looking for opinions on the best type of RV cover, my main concern is preventing ice/snow buildup on the roof resulting in water seepage or damage.
In searching the internet I see all sorts of claims and options, so am referring to the voices of experience.

I used a cover for the first time last winter.
Like you i will be putting mine on some time next month. The only thing that I do is to push the snow off the top after every snow fall and once in a while check for loose tie down

I like ADCO Tyvek for snow.

Pad sharp edges and protrusions.

Clean the MH well before covering. THe road dirt and grime will turn your cover into sandpaper.

Clean the inside so you second season the cover doesn't go as sandpaper.
