Winter Storage

Hi all,
Think about storage of my travel trailer for the winter. I am wondering what people feel are the best options... I am looking at three possibilities for this winter (I live in central Maine and will do the standard winterization);
1. Park outside uncovered.
2. Purchase a commercial trailer cover.
3. Purchase a "pop-up" garage for the trailer.

Your suggestions and why would be appreciated- and where you found the best price if you suggest a purchase.

I had the space on my property so I built an enclosed "pole building". Best thing I've even done in my +35 years of owning RV's. If you have the space & funds ($$) build yourself a enclosed storage building, you'll be glad you did!

If I had the money I would build a pole barn in a heartbeat!!! That way if needed you can get inside without messing with the cover. Plus having a cover on can form mildew on the camper roof ( bad moisture)
Keep weight of snow of camper. Then when melting finding a way into camper.

Yeah you can say I vote for a overhead covering, lol

What were your plans for building? Approximate cost? Pictures?

I have considered this and am very capable of the construction, Just not sure I really have the space- or time to do it right (by my standards).
If I do this I am hoping for some old telephone poles that I can sink in the ground and build a high quality building for it...
