Types of RV Storage: The Best Options for You

When you aren’t using your RV or travel trailer it can be difficult to find a storage spot for something so large. Maybe you can fit it in your driveway, but do you want an RV taking up your entire driveway year round? Probably not. You want to store your RV where it is easy and convenient for you that won’t break the bank. We give you a few RV storage options, and list out how each can benefit you.

The driveway

Storing your RV in the driveway is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to store the RV. You don’t have to worry about paying anything to store your RV and have access to the vehicle whenever you’d live. However, there are drawbacks to storing your RV in the driveway which can include HOA stipulations and space. Depending on the size of your driveway storing your RV with other vehicles can become a hassle. Another potential issue with HOA stipulations. Storing your RV can be contingent on what is and isn’t allowed by your HOA and the possibility of being towed.

The backyard

Depending on the size of your backyard you may be able to store your RV just behind your house. While this option may sound tempting because it’s free and convenient, there are a few reasons why this might not be the best option depending on the size of your RV. Keeping your RV in the backyard may be against HOA restrictions depending on where you live, it may also cause more damage to the vehicle being exposed to the elements uncovered. Similar to having your RV in the driveway, there may be vandalism caused to the vehicle in the open without much security. 

Outdoor storage facility

While the driveway and backyard may be the cheapest and most convenient areas for you to store your RV it can be difficult when it comes to different restrictions, vandalism, and space around your home. Many storage facilities offer outdoor storage, and sometimes indoor storage, to fit your RV. There are many benefits to storing your RV at a storage facility such as cost, security, and coverage. The cost of outdoor storage is often fairly inexpensive with ample room for a large vehicle. Another advantage of using a storage facility is the security you have to protect your RV from vandalism. Most storage facilities will be surrounded by surveillance cameras, require keypad locks, and have high fences. Along with outdoor storage choosing a covered option can help to prevent wear and tear from the outside elements.
