Cheap RV Storage Units
RV trips are gaining in popularity across the country. You may be going out on a camping vacation during the summer, or taking a month-long trip. When you return home, your RV will need a place to be stored. You simply don't have room for it in the driveway with your everyday vehicles, or may not even have a driveway. Unfortunately, the RV takes up a lot of space for street parking, and can rack up parking tickets.
US Storage Units offers RV storage solutions to keep your vehicle safe for short-term and long-term periods. Our facilities can accommodate all sizes of RVs by providing a range of vehicle storage options at specific facilities. We provide both 35' unit and 45' unit spaces.
Types for RVs
Since RVs come in so many various sizes, your options will also vary. The types of RVs that require storage may include:
Class A, B and C Motor coaches/Motorhomes
The types of storage for these RVs will depend on the length, height and width of the vehicle. There are both indoor, outdoor and covered vehicle storage options available depending on the facility and its location. Before selecting a facility, take measurements of your RV. This strategy will allow you to work with the management staff so they can better accommodate your vehicle.
Types of RV Storage
There are typically three types of RV storage solutions: indoor areas, covered outdoor areas, and RV land lots. Each area has its advantages and specifications based on the facility and space availability.
Indoor RV Storage Areas
Finding indoor RV storage is possible, as these facilities will be the most expensive option that can be found. To locate one, look for facilities that already offer indoor car and truck storage options and inquire on whether RV storage is possible.
These facilities will accommodate smaller types of RVs and trailers. Yet larger class motorhomes and motor coaches sometimes are too big to fit into these covered units. With indoor storage, your vehicle will be completely protected from the outdoor elements. The covered unit may offer climate controlled storage spaces and state-of-the-art security systems. The storage units should also come with outlets.
Outdoor Covered Storage Areas
Outdoor covered storage areas will be more common to find. These facilities will feature a covered roof unit for the RVs. They may have individual covered car ports for each vehicle, or one large covered area. The covered unit may also have enclosed sides with only the front and back open for the RV to be pulled into.
These simple covered roof designs will keep most of the harsh weather at bay to protect the RV from rain, snow and ultraviolet (UV) sunlight. Yet some of the outdoor elements will enter. Some facilities may have a permanent structure, while others have movable car port areas. You'll want to select a space that will keep your RV sheltered for the recommended time period. These facilities will accommodate most types of RVs.
RV Land Lots
RV Land Lots are the least expensive option that can be selected for RV storage. As the name implies, it is just an uncovered parking spot for your RV. All types of RVs can take advantage of these land lots as 24-hour security is available to keep your vehicle safe. Types of security measures may include security cameras, adequate lighting and private fences.
The facility may have the uncovered lot divided into sections based on RV types to better plan out the available space, or will have uniform uncovered unit spaces that accommodate any size vehicle. Even with around-the-clock security, it is always advisable to check in on your RV now and then. Since the RV land lots are not covered areas, you'll want to inspect your RV when it is out in the elements for long periods of time.
Benefits of RV Storage
RV storage may be the only option that is available. You may simply not have a parking space on your property, or you live in an HOA community that doesn't allow RVs to be parked on the street.
RV storage facilities can also offer special protection to your vehicle when you are looking to protect it from the harsh weather. If you own an expensive RV or are worried about the RV becoming damaged, then a covered space or lot will keep it protected. You don't have to invest in additional security measures at home to keep your RV safe. Instead, you can let the experienced management at the storage facility handle everything.
Obtaining Storage Solutions for Your RV
Always contact the storage facility before showing up with your RV to learn whether they can accommodate the size of your vehicle. You will want to ask about all of their options, including covered storage, security measures and facility storage access. The vehicle storage unit should also provide outlets rated for RV use, although some facilities may not offer this option.
In addition, you want to inquire about any restrictions or stipulations that may be in place for RV storage. They may only offer RV storage for specific lengths of time. Once accepting the terms and conditions, take photos of your vehicle once you place it into storage, especially if using RV land lots that allow unlimited access to customers. This tactic will ensure that you can file an insurance claim if your RV is damaged or broken into.
