The trailer will stay in the post RV storage yard. Gravel & Dirt, no overhead cover, no constant shore power.
After proper winterizing of the water system.
You should check tire pressure, and cover tires to protect from sun and ozone.
A good washing and walberniseing (Airstream wax) would be a top priority on my list.
Perhaps remove battery and give to a friend to keep in garage with a trickle charge on it every few months to keep it good.
Turn off all propane valves. Leave refrig doors open to prevent odor .
I will let you know when I think of more.
