Do you use a cover for your travel trailer/RV when storing outdoor for the winter?

    Howdy ladies and gentlemen. I was wondering if those of you who store your travel trailers/RVs in outdoor storage lots put covers over them for the Colorado winters. We recently purchased a 24 foot TT, which is why I upgraded to a Tundra, and with the camping season coming to a close (at least for me) I wanted to know if covering it is necessary. I tried looking for answers on RV forums, but found surprisingly few useful answers. Putting it in an indoor storage unit, or even a covered carport is not an option. I live in an HOA community in suburbia so offsite outdoor storage is my only option. I really appreciate your answers/opinions. Thank you!

    We cover ours, and also store it offsite at a storage facility. Though it’s technically not necessary, I like the peace of mind that it won’t leak if neglected all winter if it’s covered.

    I cover mine. But fortunately my trailer fits on my property. So I can keep an eye on it. I cover it. Then crack the roof vents a little to allow it to breath. The cover I have. An ADCO. I believe. Is not intended to be water proof. It’s supposed to breath. But it does seem to keep water out The biggest problem I have putting it on or off ,,it gets hung up on the roof things. Like antennas. A/C. Vents. So I have to be very patient and gentle when putting it on and taking it off Securing it well. Will help insure. If it gets reall stormy. It won’t come off and start tearing of said. Antenna. Vents. Etc. Sorry about bad punctuation. I am typing on an iPhone most of the times when I visit. Here. I have sausages. For fingers
