It will give the mice a way to get to the rooftop and make a warm nest for the winter. Then end up in the AC or refrigerator vent. I know from experience

Just say no to the tarp. But as far as the mold? A buddy of mine gave me a great tip. get Tide powdered laundry soap with bleach. One scoop in a 5 gal bucket, fill with water. Use that as a soap solution with a very soft brush and do the entire camper. Works AMAZING!

Hopefully they left the fridge and freezer closed tight as well.

They need to get that off and let nature run its course. I've not covered mine and never had issues with weight, water or mold. The picture attached is part of the snow NB Canada got in 2015. (not me in the image) over 15 feet in total for the season.

tell them to brush the leaves from those trees off when they are done falling and cover his AC unit but that's about it.

Tarps can stick to the rubber roof, peeling it off in the spring.

If you don't have enough already I'll post a pic of my boat. I power washed it and 2 days later tarped it. I took a peak under the tarp a couple weeks ago and it looks worse now then before I washed it. Black spots everywhere. The benefit for me though is there are no leaves gathering and staining the deck.

I vote for the carport. They are not that expensive.

As an auto restorer in years past, irregardless of what happens on top, you should never completely cover anything that is sitting on the ground. Moisture from that ground will rise and condense on whatever is above it. If that item is covered, there is no way for air to dry this moisture out and rust sets in. As was mentioned, a cheap carport (Harbor Freight) would be a much better option. Don't put sides on it, just protect the top. Let the air circulate all around the unit. Make sure you secure the carport or it will truly be GONE WITH THE WIND.....
