Yes if you can her under and out of the weather, it is better.
My 2004 T2499 is just under 10 feet. In 2005 they great about 2" taller. I am attempting to get my outbuilding to have a 120" high door in it so I can put "sunny" inside for the winter.
All the plasitc and rubber will survive a lot longer. Not to mention the black steaks.....
Hope your roof works out OK
