An RV can be a great addition to your growing vehicle collection and is always useful on long family trips but what do you do with it when you’re not driving it? Do you park it in your front lawn or a friends yard? The safest, most secure and affordable place to park your RV is at a storage facility.
RV storage is a growing trend in the U.S. because of the popularity of RV’s. If you can’t park your RV in your yard or in your driveway, either due to HOA regulations or space, RV storage may be your only option. Storing your RV at a self storage facility will keep your RV protected from vandalism, the weather and any other potential damages to the vehicle. You will be able to access your RV at any time and can store it at any time. The storage facility may provide a closed storage unit which is your own parking garage or they may have storage sheds outside where the RV slides under.
Many facilities will only provide the storage space for your RV while others will provide amenities such as a mini gas station, wash bays and other amenities. Be sure to take precautions prior to storing your RV. You can find some of the precautions in this RV blog.
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.
These RV storage tips should give you a good start on the storing process. Let us know in the comments if we missed anything.
