It's more about preventative maintenance then where it's stored.

Yearly roof inspection is a necessity no matter where it's stored. With the paint that modern coaches are getting they hold up really well to the sun, it's just the roof that needs attention, caulk inspection yearly.

I paid $100 a month for indoor storage vs free outdoor parking.

We store ours inside more for security than weather, but weather was part of the decision, hate winterizing. Doubtful that I would have spent the money just to get out of the weather.

My guess is storing it inside climate controlled is better but certainly not necessary. As already posted, keep up the preventative maintenance and life will be good.

I travel a good bit for work and wife was afraid that the absence of the MH sitting in the driveway would tip off burglars. With it inside no one would ever know if it's here or gone.

Added a garage to our existing garage. Maintain temps at 70 year round. Nice to be able to back in, hook up to water, sewer and 50 amp. Dump and flush tanks.

No matter the weather outside we can always load and unload in comfortable 70 degrees year round.

As far as rodent protection, I think mice are a problem indoors or outside. If you have mice outside they will find a way inside. Being inside definitely stops the raccoons and other large creatures.

One other thing to consider on indoor storage is if you are in a farm setting mice can be a problem inside.

Fairfield Fairgrounds offers indoor storage during the off season (winter).

My friend stores his near Fairfield indoors, I'll ask him where.

The fairgrounds isn't 24hr access either. In fact they only allow storage during the off season, or so I was told. I have found some inside storage, but not climate controlled. Guess that's still better than nothing.

There was a waiting list back then for indoor. I'll get the number for you. It doesn't want to show on Google search, I'll have to drive by.
