If it's like everything else, there is no consensus. We leave in the bed and dinette cushions, pretty much everything else goes. Thankfully it's a small trailer.

This pertains to longer non use periods, like months.

Only thing we do is strip the bed and vacuum up all crumbs.

I leave mine in after cleaning for storage, in loose clear bags with a dryer sheet . not had a problem as of yet. Seat cushions I stand on long edge to let air flow around them and good to go.

Being in the Pacific NW, we don't have freeze issue in winter. I do keep a dehumidifier running and take out a couple of cups of water every couple of weeks, so we don't remove anything. We camp year round, so need to be ready to roll within a day when the mood strikes us and the weather is decent.
