Boat Storage: Rolled or inflated?

I picked up a used Tributary that I will be storing this winter. Would it be better to store it semi inflated on a trailer in an unheated garage in Mountains (-15 degrees) or store it rolled up in a nice warm basement? I have heard snippets about PVC being vulnerable to "cold fracturing"?

Well they say keeping it semi inflated is ideal, if possible.15 below conditions are a wee bit abnormal.I'd say semi- loosely rolled in basement with nothing heavy stacked on it ,away from direct heat and chemicals you should be fine.

My gut says that either is fine. As long as it doesn't get folded/rolled/tossed around when it's minus 15. But this is a question that might be best asked of AIRE and then shared here.
