Was advised at one point not to cover our Tent Trailer over winter when we lived in Ottawa (lots of snow and cold) - was told that the cover will hold-in moisture, causing mold. Makes sense that the trailer needs to "breathe" as much as possible. I kept the roof clear of snow whenever I shoveled the drive (daily, pretty much) and opened it up in the spring as soon as I was able to air it out. If I lived in a drier area (such as TexasA&M) and my concern was only dust, dirt & bugs, I'd probably cover it as well to keep things looking good. Good luck.

I had a hard top for three years nad covered it every year. I also covered the furnace vents with tape to keep bugs out. It does help keep the sun from aging the seals.
