I have seen a video on this and you just put the container in front of the MH and pull the cover out of the container onto the roof. Fold it down over the sides and poof! Done. Have not done it myself, but it looked like a snap on the video.

Is the cover rolled up inside the container? If it is, it would have to be stored sideways, on one end of the roll. I'm trying to visualize how one would pull it out, without it unraveling before getting it up to the roof. Do you recall where you saw the video?

I have tried to find the video but no luck.
Basically, the sides of the cover are pulled up so the whole cover is laying on the roof top. Then it was fed down into the container (large plastic garbage can on wheels for easy moving) by a person at the container on the ground (don't think it would matter if you had the container at the front or rear) with a 2nd person on the roof to guide it along. The cover was stuffed into the plastic container and the lid goes on for storage.
To put it back on, park the container at the front (or rear, depending how it was removed) of the RV, tie a rope to the cover and begin to pull it out of the container and along the length of the roof.
Once you have it stretched out along the roof, drop the sides over for tie down.
I will keep looking for the video and post it if I come across it again.

I use the method described by TDOGKING. I roll the cover out, on the ground, in front with the rear of the cover just in front of my front bumper. I have a rope tied to the back of the cover. Climb up on the roof and go to the front. My wife tosses up the rope and I pull the cover up. I then walk backwards along the roof pulling the cover along, carefull about where I put my feet and avoiding snags. When I get to the rear I pull the cover up to the back edge and then go down the ladder deploying the cover as I go.

The sides always flop over the edge while doing this although some adjusting is required. Bungie it to the undercarriage and we are good to go. Total time start to finish 20 minutes to 1/2 hour depending on my wife's accuracy when throwing the rope.
