Turning my '73 Elsinore into a garage queen so I'm wondering about proper storage inside a garage that is not climate controlled. I've emptied the gas tank and was wondering should I drain the oil and leave the crankcase empty? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes, drain the tank and carb. Leave the oil in it. Cover it with some blankets. Can you run a dehumidifier? If so, keep the humidity around 50% or lower. Put it on a stand to get the tires off the floor. Plug the exhaust.
