If you can afford it, stow it indoors. That will preserve it best.
Next is outdoors with a cover.
Leaving it exposed to the elements (especially freeze/thaw cycles) will allow the most winter damage.

Because I need to use my barn/shop, the trailer stays outside, under a cover for the winter.

+1 for covering the unit. Years ago most people used to cover their RV's with tarps. That could definitely cause damage, as any water will not evaporate easily allowing for water to stay trapped between the cover & the unit possibly leading to seepage and rot.
However, with new breathable materials, RV covers actually protect the unit from the elements while allowing for any trapped moisture to evaporate from the underside. We keep our unit under a tarp "garage" in the spring/summer/fall and under a Adco cover from Nov-March.
It is nice know that our unit's rubber roof is not exposed to the sun's UV rays when we are storing it.
