Mine is PVC and I've had no problems. For the past 6 years it has been stored inflated outside on its trailer.
When I first had it I used to store it inflated in my garage but as I had no trailer I had to go through the painful rigmarole of deflation/inflation/deflation/inflation to take it anywhere - that's why I got the trailer.
If you are storing it deflated then the above will not be a problem.
