We've used an Adco cover for the past 2 years that the previous owner had gotten couple years earlier, so it's probably 5-6 years old now. It's light and breathable and works well.

Be sure to pad all sharp corners first to prevent tears, specially on those windy days.

Anything that size requires 2-3 people minimum to set it up easily, specially if there is any kind of breeze as it's like a big sail or kite once wind gets hold of it.

The way we have it set up, we start unrolling from the front and drop the sides down as we go. Then end up at the rear ladder. Snug the straps underneath well to prevent wind getting under.
Taking it off is the same in reverse, fold the sides up as we roll towards the front. Then tie the roll up and lower it down. Plan this on a dry calm day so there are no extra steps required for drying and re-packing.

When we had to store our 40' 5th wheel outside I covered it with a plastic farm tarp from Harbor Freight. A tarp would last 3-4 winters then sun rot would make it unusable.
I would buy aftermarket tarp eyelets and install enough so I could use an elastic bungee cord every 2' all the way around the RV. This prevented wind whip from marring the RV finish, and worked quite well.
The 40'X60' tarp cost approx. $70, elastic cords about $20/bundle, add-on eyelets-I forget.
I still have the bundle of elastic bungee cords, we sold that 5er in 2008. Now have a 60'x40' RV garage, gave tarp to a farmer to cover hay stored outside.
