Suggestions for putting on a cover without standing on roof?

Everything I am reading says it's very sketchy to stand on the roof of my Sunset Trail. Using plywood as a strengthener still seems a little sketchy to me, and a little more dangerous.


Is there any way I can put a cover on my trailer without actually getting on the roof?

Do you really need a cover? Many manufacturers don't recommend them.

I store the trailer at a storage facility with a dirt/gravel road, so the trailer gets really dusty in storage.


Also, the exterior is really taking a beating from the sun. My trailer is a 2014, but the white exterior stripes have already started to turn brown from the sun exposure. And the fiberglass siding is starting to lose its shine.

There's a product that I use to prevent dulling of the siding. It can go over everthing including the decals. It has an UV protector in it and it has been working great. RejeX® - Official Site


The oxidation must be removed first before using Rejex.
