Store mine inside a building with dirt floor. I place rubber horse matt under tires and cover them. Maxxis tires seem to approve. Always look new.

Okay, thanks everybody! I guess I'm okay on the gravel.

The ground freezes over here in Bassett too. I think. Mine are parked on the grass and/ or gravel year round. Actually the trailers rarely move all winter its up hill in grass to get them out & the wheels like to spin with damp grass / snow...... I do put the camper on 2 x's on gravel, the box and flat trailers sit on the grass / dirt. Two cars sit all the time on gravel under a carport. They sit all winter..

No one has brought up that mice hate gravel, helps keep the little buggers away from the unit.

Nice to know....however, I did have a 'short' visit with a rat in the storage area last year.

Well, that's not really parking on the gravel now is it?

I've been parking my TTs in a grass field but with the tires on patio slabs. No problems yet.

My old popup was stored in a garage with a dirt floor but the tires sat on 2x8s. Those Carlisle tires lasted about 15 years until I sold it.
