Moisture ingress would be my concern, unless the seals are air tight.

boutland we had a pennine pullman for 5 years and a pennine fiesta before that for 4 years and both were stored outside in all weathers without any problems, we stored it with front raised higher than the back so excess water ran off, in the winter I put large bubble wrap on top of the bed boards under the transit cover and never once had damp or moisture ingress, mind I did have a pennine breathable cover over the campers in the winter and on dry days I would periodically erect and open it for an hour, they are more durable than you think.

we have previously had FC' s initially a pullman, we had a rigid shelter / mini car port style made locally to put it under and then covered it with a large tarpaulin , we are       
fortunate to have the space to do so , i wouldn't rely solely on the travel cover to keep it "weatherproof" invest in a decent tarp' or a suitable winter cover , and as suggested previously ,raise the unit by the jockey wheel to create the run off to avoid water pooling and settling

Our FC is and has been stored outside for 9years, without any problems. We tilt the front up, and we donít use a winter cover.

I have a big inflatable ball under the travel cover on mine
I read on the forums in here that some use an airbed under the cover to stop puddles
