There are no guarantees hail won't damage the trailer. As mentioned before vents, skylights, etc. are most at risk. BUT, you have a far better chance of fairing well compared to an aluminum skinned anything...

We had hail the size of marbles a month ago with no damage to our uhaul. It's always the question of should I park under a tree to get away from the hail, or will the tree fall on the trailer??
