We get 120"-300" per season here in central/northern NY. Never heard of anyone having a snow load problem. Now mice or tree branches, that's a different story! The trailer is never going to be "too" level that water doesn't run off it. The only thing I'd ever worry about is exposed OE vents that get brittle and can break. Maxxairs take care of that problem.

When I store it, I normally lower the tongue so the water will run off the roof so that should help with the melting snow. I do have a cover for it - will it help, or is it not really necessary?

I wouldn't bother with a cover. They trap moisture and can also rub up against the walls and roof when the wind ripples them and dull the finish or damage the caulked seams.

Never had a problem with snow loads in NE Illinois. I do keep the roof on a slight angle (tongue up) so the snow-melt can run off the back gutters.
