I have two freezers. The one attached to my refrigerator and a second big upright one. I know not to use the self defrosting one attached to my refrigerator for long term storage, but what is the best way to prevent freezer burn on the the items I would like to keep for a few months to a year?

Make sure all air is out of the wrapping package and double wrap. For example if I use a zip lock bag I will squeeze all the air out before locking it then will wrap again in a paperbag or another zip lock.
