Mine is outdoors but I will be cutting a tarp to go over the whole trailer for long periods of rain. I can't leave a tarp over it as moist air under the tarp make it worse than notarp.

I’m fortunate to have space in the shop for it so it lives inside. Just have to roll it out onto the cement pad to use it.

Mine spent 4 years in the open but it doesn't have any leaks so I didn't get any water inside it. The paint took a pretty good beating from being in the elements.

I’m hoping that mine won’t let in a lot of water. I have a shop so I may leave it inside and cook outside the shop when I get ready to cook. It’s a little far from the house but if it saves my smoker I’ll do it.
