Winter is just around the corner, time to put the MH away for a few months. Was wondering what is the best material to have under the tires while it just sits. I have used cement, wood, gravel and who knows what and I'm not sure what is the best for the rubber. What does the majority place under their tires?

Gravel works for me, I've been using it for years. It gives good drainage but, I don't know if that really matters.
I've had no problems with the tires.

Anything that's not organic material that would basically break down the rubber - i.e. don't park on dirt, untreated wood, etc. Best option would seem to be raising it up off the tires.

Read somewhere it's better to park on wood vs. concrete and that's we do. So far so good, but it is a PIA to get the tires just right on the 2x6's. And we cover the tires against the UVA .

Thank you for the replies, parking on gravel with good drainage sounds like it would be the best. I have lots of road gravel so that will be the route I will use this winter. Have good Holidays.
