We store our trailer for the winter at our seasonal site. I can't imagine not covering it. The roof would be full of pine needles and tree crap if it wasn't covered.

On the cover vs. don't cover debate:

Generally, I covered my last trailer with a tarp and bungee cords. Two winters I neglected to go through the process.

The amount of leaves & crud on the roof and ice damage where the exterior walls meet...

I bought a cover for the new trailer and it will be secured before the first hard freeze.

A cover is a whole lot cheaper than a new roof, A/C seal or corner bead replacement. As stated, it must be secured so it doesn't flap in the winter winds.

I just sold my ADCO on Craigslist last weekend. I had no place to store the cover once taken off the trailer. ADCO doesn't provide any sort of carry bag or storage bag. It's a pain to mount, but the worst part was I couldn't open my slides from November till April. Since I store the unit at home, it chapped my butt everyday I came home from work knowing I couldn't open the slide and enjoy the camper, or maybe have a Super Bowl party... Whatever.

I liked the cleanliness of the trailer when I uncovered it. I liked having the roof somewhat protected.

I just saw a CW pamphlet in the mail showing a "roof only" cover on a class A. That sort of intrigues me. Something like that might allow slides to open.
