    I was considering buying rv cover, is it possible to install rv cover by oneself?
    I read RV Cover Replacement Installation Guide said the rv winter cover is to be done by at least 2 adults .
    Has anyone had any positive or negative experiences with installing RV Covers?
    Thanks.

    They are very heavy and difficult to handle, on a windy day, almost imoossible. Helped a friend cover his MH, decided inside winter storage was a better option for mine

    It is a pain. I have covered ours the last 5 years. I have gotten better as the years have gone but, but having one person on the ground makes it way easier. As Ken said, a windy day its nearly impossible. I have learned to strategically fold and roll mine before going up there. That helps, but now you have covered all the trip hazards up, so be careful. Its also hard to shift a cover around that you are standing on.

    Long story...hard, meh. More just a severe PITA. Two people....For sure. Windy day....NOPE. lol
