One of this years projects is to build a new parking/storage area to park the Heartland on. I was wandering, what is the recommended surface material for under the tires, for longer term storage (2-3 weeks between use - 5 months winter). It will be outdoors, with the hopes of a carport roof in the future. Concrete, gravel, treated wood etc....

Thanks for the help.

Mine is on gravel, and it seems fine, except when you want to crawl around under it. Keep thinking about a concrete pad...

Ours is on gravel too! Tires stay mostly dry. No issues that we are aware of yet.

Ours sits on gravel under a carport.

I was thinking gravel for better drainage, but a concrete pad would not allow moisture to evaporate up through. Not Sure??

I keep mine stored inside the shop however asphalt milling's do work well for a pad.
