Winter storage Q

Good morning,

As our camping season comes to an end and I start preparing for the long winter sleep, I have a question about my TT sitting on pavement all winter.

Should I park the trailer on 2x to get the tires off the pavement or will they be okay over the winter months?

I think we are prepared for the other winterizing steps but started thinking of the tires.

Thanks in advance.

I fairly certain that you will hear from two groups...those that advocate having the tires on wood rather than concrete or asphalt and those that don't worry about it.

Since my rigs have been stored away from my house for years, I've never worried about it. My thoughts are that it isn't a problem as I'm a believer in replacing tires every five to seven years.

Ours is on concrete long with our cargo trailer and we don't worry about it. We replace tires at 5 years too.

Our previous unit we parked mainly on gravel for the first 5 years and swapped tires at 7 years.

Good luck with your decision, but to me, I don't mind concrete. I would just not want it parked on dirt/grass.
