Is tarping it okay?
People debate covering trailers during the winter. My X23B trailer is stored near trees, so a cover keeps it nice and clean during the winter months. For our last trailer, an X17Z, we used to cover the roof with our old popup cover. It worked well and protected the roof.
If you decided to cover, you should understand that the cover should be breathable (hence the expensive material costs). Tarps are not that good as they trap moisture which can lead to leaks. It would be better to not cover than to tarp, IMO.
Look at ADCO covers from camping world. We like ours and it works well by protecting the roof from snow & direct sunlight.
