Another winter storage question...


I have an option to store my trailer in a grass lot or a paved parking lot this winter.

Both outdoors.

I figure the pavement is better for moisture and less likely to have critter issues...

Is one really better than the other?

I'd go with the less expensive one.

Personally, mine is over grass, covered and plugged in.

I'd go paved if given the option. Cleaner and doesn't sink into the ground.

If similar cost I would go with the paved storage. Ours is sitting on concrete this winter inside one of the local fairgrounds barns, but I still put something under the tires. Cut a horse stall mat up to park on.

I'd go with paved, given the option. It should reduce the critter factor and the tires won't sink in. But put wooden boards or rubber mats beneath the tires. Concrete will suck the oils from the rubber in your tires and they will last longer if protected. Also, cover your tires to protect them from UV rays. And don'e forget to cover your AC roof unit to prevent ice and snow buildup. Over time, it's hard on the hardware up there.
