Outside. No power, no cover. Antifreeze in the traps only. I live in Arizona at 5000 ft. We do go below freezing sometimes during the night in the winter. Nothing too extreme and it usually warms up to high 40's during the day...

Outside but in totally covered storage space. It never gets direct sun unless we're using it. It's 4 years old and still looks new.

Ours is parked at an all year site. We tarp it for UV protection and to prevent leaves etc from taking root on the roof. We are at 52 degrees north latitude. Never had any issue with snow.

For the last 45 years wed have stored all of our trailers properly winterized and uncovered on asphalt pad nxt to the garage. I do run the wheels up onto 2 x 10's take some of the weight off. The battery goes in the garage on a battery conditioner.We have never had any trouble.

This is our first time storing it outside. Our new pup is too big for my garage. We winterized it, put glue traps throughout in case mice get in. And placed ant traps everywhere. Dryer sheets tossed all over as mice and small rodents do no like. when it's opened in the spring it smells great. I have a fitted cover and a good tarp over that to protect it from the snow and rain during the harsh New Jersey winter. We also have the tires off the ground on wooden boards to help prevent dry rot. . I keep the battery at home on a trickle charger that maintains the battery during the winter months.

Thanks for the feedback folks...seems that answers are fairly varied. I put it up on jacks and mouse-proofed it. However I never had unwelcome "friends" infiltrate the last trailer. I suppose bitter cold, even inside a closed up trailer, is not an ideal home. It'll be 6 months before I get to use it again. Have a great winter everyone.

Outside blow lines down 3 or 4 times rv anti freeze in all traps and grey water tanks put at least a cup in tanks. Clean top apply uv protector. I leave it plugged in 24/7 will a small heater inside. And finally I put Damp Rid inside to take any moisture inside out of the air.

Sorry that made me laugh just a bit.
we dont get teh winds you do which have 4 days to gain a full head of steam... but
We had almost 16 feet of snow last winter and PEI had over 18 feet.
My trailer is 11 foot 3 inches to the top of the air conditioner. couldn't see it for part of the season.
Outdoors without a cover but we did shovel the roof down 4 times to almost the hatch covers.
