How to choose a good RV storage facility

Unread postby drew1xx on Fri Feb 19, 2010 3:18 pm

I'm new to the site and new to RVing. I need to store my motorhome and I'm not sure how to choose a good RV storage facility. I found this informational site on RV storage http://www.RVstorageINFO.com and found the articles very helpful. I was hoping that someone could share other links on RV storage or share what they do when choosing a storage facility. Thanks for the help.

Welcome!

I had a quick read thru the website you reference.....lots of good info there. Although the estimated prices sure are not cheap. Up here in Ottawa, I have my trailer stored at an outdoor facility, that has a locked gate, alarm system covering the parameter, and I have a key, alarm access code and alarm key-fob that grants me 24/7 access.
And it's less than $60 month. However, it doesn't have a place for me to wash the rv, or dump the tanks, or anything else like that. For the the price, I'm not complaining. :)

Sorry, I can't help you there. We live on a farm and there's lots of room between the barns :)

Welcome but sorry I can't help. If I needed a storage lot, I wouldn't have an RV.

Thank you for all your help and sugestions. I found a great RV storage facility. There called McBride's RV storage in Chino California. The facility is close to my house and they off great a great service for their RV storage customers. I went to their website that was very impressive http://www.McBridesRVstorage.com for an RV storage site. I found out that they offered amenities that I know I going to use offen like the RV wash station, dump stations, and they give you free ice. My favorite thing I love is that they offer 24 hr access to my motorhome. I got all of that and the best part is I'm only paying $128.00 per month. That price is a steal for Southern California RV storage. I was so razzed I have already reffered my freinds to store their boats,trailers and motorhomes with the McBride's. I can only say thank you for your help. This forum is awesome!

I regret for late posting. Actually, I was looking for ideas to innovate my business. I run business of RV storage in Vancouver, WA. I find the link, shared in top post, so useful. Thanks for sharing, buddy.

When you say wild camping, I think boondocking. To me boondocking is going to rural places.

a) watch your road.

b) have an idea of where the nearest people place is, be that just a fishing hole where several fishers hang out. It should be a source of help if you need it.

c) You should have two ways to cook food. don't count on it being legal to light a wood fire. & know if that is legal

d) You might need a shovel to create your own toilet pit.

e) Good walking footware.

f) Some knowledge of the wildlife in the area.
