I have one and I set it up in the winter. I have mixed feelings - not from the anchored/moving aspect, but when coming in to dock under power. Mine takes up the entire cockpit and I have a large cockpit, so it is a bit of a bear when the wind is blowing. In fact, it is flat hard to manage period.

On the flip side, the other 99% of the time is great. You are protected from the weather and it gives you a whole other room. A good one made of Sunbrella is not cheap, though. Make sure you opt to have zip out panels with mosquito netting for when it gets warmer.
