Winter Cover vs Indoor Storage

I'm trying to decide between indoor storage which is around $225/winter vs a good winter cover around $225 once. I live in NW Pennsylvania, so definitely in the snow belt. Anyone have any advise?

only you can answer that.

The numbers are exactly identical to mine. I decided to cover it in my back driveway. I like looking at it everyday

on edit: our winters here are far worse

$225 for the whole winter sounds really good. I was talking to someone who was paying about that much a month in the Vancouver area. With the winters you get I would consider indoors.

At $225 that's a bargain for indoor winter storage in the snow belt, and IMO the benefits exceed that of using a RV cover. For me it would be not having to worry about snow load, ice, damage by the cover, putting the cover on/off, storing the cover, and having a controlled environment to access the TT.

Having a TT stored indoors is truly having it out of the elements

With those numbers, I'd go with inside storage...

Ha... a good winter cover is around $225 once.... every 3 or 4 years. Those things usually don't last long. They rip in the wind, rip on a corner, or you decide its way too much trouble messing with every year and it gets dumped in the corner of your garage.

For that money, I would park indoors every winter. Away from salt spray, away from tree branches that fall due to heavy snow, away from icy driveways that someone could slide into it, etc.
