Winter cover for cutaway skoolie

I need a cover for my cutaway skoolie for outside winter storage in NH (sometimes lots of snow). I was looking at conventional Class B covers but I anticipate problems with the mirrors. Obviously I can remove the passenger side mirror but I am wondering what other people have done and also looking for cover recommendations.

Something like this would be good if you have the coin.:

Otherwise a poly tarp secured all around should work if the budget isn't there for a temporary shelter.

They do look good but unfortunately My bus is 96 with the AC unit. I wonder if the door assembly is separate and could be added once the bus was in. Ill check it out. Thanks.

I bought a cover from this place for my Class A. There's built in wiggle room for the mirrors on all their models.

I thought this was too good to pass up, $180:

Thanks o1marc I just shot them (nationalrvcovers) an email with a picture to see what they recommend with my Yuge passenger side mirror.

Those covers look good if you're parking under a carport or inside a garage, but out in the weather, (snow/ice), not much protection.
And will be hard to clear snow off without damaging.

You probably should ask if they have a cover for use in winter/snow conditions, as they really don't look very durable for north east winters?
Good luck!!!

The one I posted is fine for the North Georgia weather I get. They make much sturdier ones going up in price. I just want something to keep the leaves off in the fall.
