Covered is always better when not in use for periods of time

Consider that windy conditions could cause the cover to "chafe" the finish on your coach.

Don't forget that a covered coach is one prone to mold...

pagosajoe has a good point. At a park where we winter, I saw a coach that was covered, on a particularly windy day with the cover doing a lot of moving and flapping. I would think that could cause issues with the finish.
