 I store my trailer in non-heated shed over the winter. Last year I did not take the mattress out, just covered it with a mattress envelope that zippers shut. A friend of mine told me though that I will end up with mold on my mattress and I should take it out. I think it is a short queen and it`s very bendable (its the original that came with the trailer), so it was awkward and not so easy for me to take it out by myself and get it in the house. Difficult enough that there is no way I am putting it downstairs (finished basement), I`m going to just have to lean it up against the wall in my room for the winter. So after all this - is it necessary to rermove the mattress every winter to avoiid mold problems? Easier solution for one day in the future when it is time to replace this mattress?

Thanks!

Is your trailer insulated?

I have had four LQ trailers in the last 15 years and have never taken the mattress out. I currently live in the South, and have never experienced mold, even in the hot and humid summers.

Over the past  20 years I've never taking a mattress out of my LQ trailer for winter storage and have never experinced mold problems.  On top of that my parents have had RV's since 1980 and have never had mold issues with a mattress left in the RV over winter storage.  I can't think if a single reason to hassle with removing the mattress for extended storage.

Well it's a relief to hear that you have not had to take your mattress out. It will be hard enough to get back outside and back in the trailer come spring, I will likely never do that again! 
Yes my trailer is insulated, it's a Merhow slant load with living quarters that I bought new, so it is factory finished on the inside. Sounds like just putting the mattress envelope around it is enough (I figure it keeps it dust free).

Thanks for the reassurances!
