I tried covering my 2H trailer for couple years. Got Beverly Bay cover that ripped already on 1st year, and basically was gone by the end of the 2nd year. My neighbor never covers hers and it looks great (it's 20+ years old, alum). I think if you keep cover on all the time the moisture indeed will be trapped under (which is no good).

Thanks Val - I am thinking now I may just cover it from November through March each year, when we have our highest winds and tree branches are flying every which way. Those are also our wettest months, so I'll have to keep an eye on it to be sure no mold is creeping in.

I'd say it makes sense. I didn't cover mine this winter but we had one-in-time winter (almost no snow, warm, and very little rain). Last winter I bought a big tarp in local Home Depot and covered with tarp Dec - Mar (was 2 or 3 times cheaper than getting another "professional" cover).

Is there a place where they store boats, maybe, that is high enough to drive your trailer into, and affordable? I did that for about 3 years before I moved, and it really helped.

That would be perfection...but not affordable for me, I get to keep my trailer at the barn at no cost

I looked into this as well as "portable" garage while back (as of course either is much better than cover). But those options are not very cheap, unfortunately. :(

What about putting up a Moto Shade for the trailer to be stored under? I live in Oregon and have the rain issue as well. I have been thinking about getting a cover for my trailer after I paint it, but now I am thinking "not so much!"

Moto Shades can be found at Bi Mart, etc.

I'll look into it, I've never heard of one!
