Cover or not?

I live in New England so my Jayco will see snow and winter weather. Is it necessary to cover it if stored outdoors?

Necessary, no, but it will protect it from the elements of winter. If you clean it before covering it up, in the spring when you uncover, it's ready to go. We wash and wax first, winterize it, take out anything readily available for a mouse house, cover the tires, and put the cover over it. Just our routine

Most trailer covers will do more damage than they prevent... YES they work if you get everything just right.. but let one strap get loose and a wind from the right direction and it will eat through your siding real fast... take a look at your dealers lot and see how they store them over winter...
