How best to look after our van overwinter; buy a good quality cover or seek undercover storage? Hector is a 23 year old Elddis Wisp so we feel keeping him dry is essential. He's currently stood on grass at friends, if we go for the cover option I guess axle stands are a must? We have already drained everything down and removed bedding etc. We are able to keep an oil filled rad' on low all winter. Any advice appreciated, this is our first year with a caravan. Thanks in advance.

Providing caravan does not leak then theres little point in using a cover, it appears to have survived the first 23yrs. Do not heat the inside, it will cause condensation. Leave cupboards open & ensure permanent ventilation in floor is not obstructed to allow air to circulate fully. Leave handbrake off with steadies down, ensure screw threads & joints on steadies are well lubricated with spray grease.
You can put it on axle stands if you like or just jack up a few times over winter & spin wheels. Standing on grass will tend to cause green mould on body but you can wash it off easily enough.
