How To: Storing RV’s, Trailer’s and Camper’s

Like anything of value, RV’s, trailer’s, and camper’s need to be stored properly. Travel trailer’s can be an expensive investment, so why not uphold your investment? Keep reading for information regarding how to store travel trailers.

At Home

When storing a RV, trailer, or camper, there are multiple ways you can do it. Some RV owners choose to store rigs at home, although it may not be legal in some states. Before you begin the process of storing an RV at your house, make sure your city allows it. If you choose to store your RV or camper at home, you’ll need a few things. Make sure you purchase tire covers, an RV cover, tire wedges, and loads of time for maintenance. During winter, make sure you clean out, flush out lines, and prepare your RV or trailer for a harsh winter. I always say, hope for the best, expect the worst.

Tip: Check with you city to find out if any regulations prohibit you from parking an RV or camper long-term on your property. The last thing you want is a hefty fine on your hands.

Storage Facilities

Through the years, RV storage has proven to be one of the fastest growing markets in the country. RV and camper storage facilities are like storage centers where you rent a unit and store. The difference? RV’s need much more space. They offer security, air conditioning, heating and other amenities. These facilities are often found in the south, where the climate is warm year-round. RV storage buildings serve a dual purpose for owners, allowing them to store and protect their RV, along with everything they might need for their next trip.

Tip: RV and camper storage doesn’t necessarily need to be at an “RV storage facility”. Look for storage facilities in your area that offer RV storage but don’t promote their locations as such. You might be surprised at the deals you might be offered.
