We are leaving our new bobcat on our Tacoma and wondering if it's ok not to have it covered.

Live in Oregon, so it's moderate climate. Doesn't fit in the garage.  Can't find an RV cover that

fits unless it's custom made.  Do we need to cover it?  Thanks

I've left my 2005 FWC Hawk outside in Bend, Oregon, uncovered, its entire life. That probably isn't good for the paint on the roof, but the solar charging system likes it.
YMMV

Ours, luckily, fits in our garage but I can offer some suggestions if you store it on the truck outside. Open it up occasionally in nice weather to air it out. Occasionally you can also warm the interior with an electric heater. You can also place a bucket of damprid inside. The year we stored our first camper outside in the winter we'd clear the snow from the roof after each storm.

I'm currently storing mine outside with an 11 foot cover for a pop up camper.

 

Check out this Amazon link

 

It fits pretty well length wise and covers about half of the camper's sides.
