I live in upstate NYS just south of Buffalo, NY in what is called "ski country" on the local TV station's weather reports. None of the dealers here cover their new and used RVs. We have lots of travel trailers sitting all winter long in RV parks around here that are not covered. You see lots of both travel trailers and motorhomes sitting outside beside houses that are not covered. In fact it is a rarity to see one covered around here!

I live in a condo so don't have many cover options. I bought a cover for the Canadian winter, something like this 3 years ago and is still holding up with some wear and tear. It did tear in one spot which I patched with material it came with and spray 77 glue. I can't find the actual one I bought, but that one looks similar.

I know with kayaks you need to cover them in the winter because with freezing and thawing cycles you can get cracks in the kayak from ice expanding. I would think for fiberglass trailers there may be a risk of this also.

Depending of if you do anything in the winter with it, how about putting it totally inside. A lot of fair grounds around here have winter storage for campers inside their buildings they don't have any need for in the winter. And generally the fee is pretty reasonable. But you have to deliver it on a specific day and pick it up on a specific day and have no access to it in the mean time.

Interesting idea. But I get 'free' parking at my condo and I want to do some work on the interior during the winter. I'd love to have a place inside to work on it though.

13" cover fits the 16' scamp

I needed one as well, so last year I got this one. First I ordered the 16' one and it fit like an oversized diaper - horrible. Being amazon, I figured what the heck.. and ordered the 13'. Fits like a GLOVE and I have a rack with solar on top.

Classic Accessories Over Drive PolyPRO3 Molded Fiberglass Travel Trailer Cover, Fits 11' - 13' Trailers (80-295-153101-RT)
More information: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KHX2I4A...ing=UTF8&psc=1

When I purchased it, the price was $131.69... now there are some 3rd party options for $299... global shipping nightmare I guess. I don't have snow where I am, but in the pouring rain, this thing worked extremely well and it keeps the bird **** and tree sap off my fiberglass.

Hope this helps
Jason
