Hook it up and take a weekend off somewhere West of the storm.

If you're concerned about the wind shifting your egg, add weight on the floor. The lower the center of gravity the more stable the trailer will be. High winds often topple empty highway trailers but rarely loaded ones. If you have a few of the poly storage containers in your house just shift them to the egg for the weekend. Just a thought.

I'm starting to seriously consider moving my Burro out of the storage lot, which has the advantage of being treeless, but it's also in a lowish lying neighborhood not that far from a tidal creek and is surrounded by a LOT of impervious surfaces. I am not sure I like the prospects of 5 inches of rain plus flooded creek plus flooding streets and parking lots....

I'm on the edge of the Ches.Bay. My boat which lives in the water looks like it's in a spider web. The camping trailers are all in the barn except the Compact and my work trailers. I'm making room in the carport for the tractor, it has to be under cover for ins. purposes. I have had two trailers damaged by trees due to wind thats why I built the barn.
One solution is to head 200 miles west with your trailer and spend the night in the middle of a Walmart parking lot. Then return home after the storm, at least you will have place to live if your house is damaged during the storm.
Got to go, I still have a bunch of stuff to tie down.
