To cover for winter ... or not?

Poll question: if you live in the north, do you cover your camper for winter or not? I'm trying to convince myself I don't really need to do it this year. We keep our camper in a storage facility, not a covered spot, but in a tight spot so it is a major pain to cover. We've done it the last 2 years (our first 2 camping seasons!) but I am dreading doing it this year. But I will if all you experts tell me it's really worth doing. Thanks!

It's all up to you as it really doesn't make that much of a difference. My previous 2 TT's were never covered. The TT I have was covered for the last 2 years, but I didn't cover it for this winter.

I figure they are made to be outside anyway so why am I covering it...

Of course you do need to check seams and roof etc on regular basis but not sure that a cover makes that any less important.
Due to depreciation the above opinion is now worth less than what you paid for it.

Everyone is good at something... I happen to be a good bad example.
