    Best thing is too use your MH but if you can't then I would be inclined to put the silver screens on

    I had to put mine in storage for a few months last winter while we were having building work done and used the external screen to stop the scuttle filling with twigs and leaves but if you don't have a "twig" problem I wouldn't use it all winter. The screens are to prevent condensation but if you aren't living in the MH this won't be an issue. You risk letting the screen get green and grungy if used all winter.

    As above, they are for stopping condensation and giving insulation but as your not in the van or using any heat then why bother...

    Unless you have a specific problem not mentioned I would not use it while storing the van
