Best cover for winter weather; snow and cold temps?

Hello All. What is the best RV cover for a 2014 Thor Hurricane 32A, 33 feet long, for winter weather? Best protection against snow, sleet, ice and cold temps? Do RV covers come with wheel protectors, and if so, which brands? I have looked at them and they all seem pretty much the same, so I thought I would get real opinions from all of you.
Thanks so much!

The best cover is Mother Nature. No cover will protect against cold ! the sun will shed very little harmful ultraviolet rays in the winter and the snow will keep that to a minimum.
All you need to do is remove any snow and ice before you travel so it doesn't blow off into someones windshield.

There are many treads on this and other fourms of "to cover or not to cover". So not to get into that issue and trying to answer your question, we use the ADCO Designer covers on both of our units. The 5th wheel is in deap snow country Pa. on a seasonal site, stationary all year long for the last 3 years. Covered every year and it looks new still. I also clean it on a regular basis and wax it 2 times a year. The MH is in the driveway covered now till spring with the same cover. The newer ADCO covers come with pull string gutter guards which are very nice. One of the lower straps for the MH was positioned dead center of the front wheel so the strap was too short to connect either in front or back of the wheel. Called ADCO they are sending an extension with 2 additional gutter guards for the door step N/C. Very easy to deal with. Cover fit GREAT (called ADCO for suggestion on cover too). Top of cover material is heavy which will work for snow, and the sides are a different material which breaths well. Not aware of any that come with tire covers but Amazon has the wheel covers at great prices. My .02 hope it helps.
