I don't know that it would be necessary, but I would say worth it. Our Classic cover for our 23IKSS was about $300, which is not a huge investment compared to the cost of the trailer. I wouldn't recommend a tarp - rv covers are breathable and fitted. You don't want moisture trapped under there and you don't want the cover flapping in the wind.
In this climate, the trailer spends 6 months sitting winterized and sun and weather are what really deteriorate a trailer's appearance. I like washing it before putting the cover on and then pulling it out the spring still nice and clean. I really wish I had a garage to keep it in, but I don't, so the cover is the next best thing.
The Roo last winter. Going to add tires covers and cover over the tongue jack this year.
