RV Storage, RV Storage FacilityRV self storage is an affordable option to housing your RV if you are unable to park your RV in front of your home. There are several different types of RV storage ranging from an enclosed parking space to a vacant parking lot. The most expensive is an enclosed RV storage unit, which is similar to a garage. The enclosure may have amenities such as heat and electricity and can only be accessed by the RV owner.
The second type of a RV storage facility is a covered self storage unit with three walls. Typically no amenities are provided but it will protect your RV from mother nature elements.
The third type of RV storage is a covered parking spot; your RV is parked under a canopy which protects your RV from the sun but does not block your vehicle from moisture or wind damage. Another way that self storage facilities can store your RV is in a gated parking lot or in a parking garage. RV covers are also available to cover your RV and protect it from the sun, wind, and rain.
Be prepared to show proof of insurance and ownership of the RV at the time of signing the lease. If you're not going to be storing your RV in an individual RV storage unit you may want to take photographs of the RV to protect your belongings from damages that may occur. Also check with your insurance provider to see if your insurance policy covers storing your RV in a RV storage facility.
When preparing your RV to place into RV storage you will want to remove items that can suffer damage if exposed to extreme temperatures of heat and cold such as electronics, liquids and food. Take the time to winterize your RV, drain the water heater tank and all water hoses and run anti-freeze throughout the water system, to keep your pipes from freezing while in storage.
