Welcome to the forum, Dsfast!

Year round camping and Canada are not words we on the Gulf Coast normally associate with each other. I guess between heat or cold it is a pick your poison situation.

For your peace of mind it might be better to store them in the house again this year. The others have provided good feedback in case you do decide to keep them in the camper.

I'm in Texas and we use indoor storage. We have a Popup currently and just bought a Aframe. With Popups having mattresses and with storage we never had a single problem. The pup stayed dry and when we opened it there was never any odor just the new camper smell. We also used a memory foam topper that kept in a space bag. So my theory is that leaving mattress/cushions in the camper would not be a problem. I'm still planning on doing the same once we get our aFrame home.

Over the last 36 years we have owned a few campers and trailers. We have never taken the mattress and/or bedding out for the winter. I can't ever remember having a musty smell. My wife throws some Bounce sheets around tho'.
