Up until this year I had my trailer stored in a barn during the winter for $300.

Now it is stored outdoors in Northern Quebec on my property.

I REALLY feel bad about it as I have about 6 feet of snow surrounding the trailer and about 4 feet on the roof.

That CAN'T be as good as barn storage.


Yes but the UV protection is unparalleled.


Ha!

I just bought my first TT and had a 12 ft wide flat top roof built for it. I wish I could post a pic because other than the sun and rain that falls directly overhead its doesn't do much. I asked it be built 12 ft tall but it turned out 14. Id like to add some siding on the sides along the top half but the 4 inch square frame tubes are 12 ft apart... Not much else i can do but maybe plant some red tips around it or fast growing maple trees but heck thats gonna take some time to grow. Hah.

I built a boat shed and placed a mesh sun screen that's been up about 4 yrs now that blocks the scortching afternoon sun that does the job well.

Get the TT you like and worry about storing it in the garage or outside later. What good is a TT if it is to small for you to enjoy.
