Eggzactly. And if one takes care of their "cheap" rv, it will last a long time. If one treats it like alot of people treat their possessions, it will fall apart much quicker.

My bottom line is... When I'n not using the TC, it stays in the tractor shop, inside, under roof, always. Outside in the elements is always detrimental to it's longevity. Even the fiberglass tub ones.

Shop is heated and air conditioned as well, nice and dry year around.

Tractors stay inside as well as my 1997 Ford. Amazing how inside extends their life.

You are fortunate Flip, to live on the farm.
Even in Las Vegas, where codes allow big garages, my RV garage with its 10' high door will not accommodate TC.
I am using portola for camper, but even with 12' clearance there, the basement camper will not fit roof AC under, so I can hide it only partially.
When in CA, the building codes would not allow to build big garages at all, when city codes were banning RV from parking on most of the lots.
