I've had maybe 7 or 8 RVs now in my 40 plus years of RVing. I live in northern Utah where real winters happen. I've never, ever covered a RV and there's not one thing about any RV I've owned that would be attributed to uncovered winter storage. It's marketing and people buy into it thinking they should put a warm blanky over their beloved RV. But, they take it off when the actual damage from the summer sun's starts. Inspect your roof and let it sit. Really. Just let it be. You just saved several hundred dollars and it'll be fine. I promise.
Well said!!!
