A center pole may also be necessary. I see you are "south" but any snow load will stretch the center creating a low spot.
If there is a low spot for any reason; water will pool and drain to the interior below. Mildew will not be far behind and you will be starting one of those "I cant get the black spots off my vinyl" threads. FWIW.
I agree about cutting out the rear swim platform, but that is just how he does his covers. I think it is mainly for access to the rear tension straps. We may try to make something to cover up that area when it sits outside.

If we do get any snow this year I'll jump in there and use something to prop the center up, but I also have a big 20'x30' tarp that goes over the tower and covers the whole trailer too in case of a bad storm.

I'm hoping to be closing on a house in the next month and I'm going to put up a pole barn for the boat to keep it out of the elements until I can build my shop in a few years

Thanks for looking out!
