Water damage from bad winter. Need winter cover suggestions

I had some water and ice work itís way into the slide on my camper. Caught it before any real damage was done, just had some water staining on the wallpaper above the slide on the inside. Repairs have been completed and now I am in the hunt for a winter storage cover to prevent the water and ice from getting in again. Looking for suggestions on a good quality cover. Not afraid to pay for good quality. Box on my camper is 33 feet. 36 overall with tongue.

I have never used a cover as the wind where I live is ferocious and they just rip or rub and do damage to the finish but I see Adco covers around a lot.

If you are just looking for storage protection while living in another structure, you can build a steel one for a little more than the price of a removable 'cover'. Handy to have access when you are loading/unloading in the rain.

Before I build a pole barn garage for our RV and toys I used a cheap farm tarp from Harbor Freight and added extra eyelets between the OEM eyelets. The tarp would last about 3 years before sun-rot ruined it.
I never did spot any rub marks or paint damage from the tap rubbing after I began adding the extra eyelets and using elastic tie-down cords.
The tarp ran about $40, the elastic cords were about 50 cents ea.
