Found close RV storage for a 40 footer here in So Kalifornistan -

Outdoor for $289mo or indoor for $489mo.

The outdoor does allow covers - But I'm not so sure I'll be able to put it on / remove myself. (Back issues.)

Before deciding to go new - We looked at a few that were stored outside uncovered. They all looked terrible because of the sun damage.

What say you...?

Thanx, Sarge

Yes you correct about the weight. Most covers only last 2 years anyway and do more damage than good.

WOW, OC storage is pricey.

YIKES! People in CA. must be rich! $65.00 a month for outdoor here in MN with lots of security and on-site mgmt. and $35.00 for the same in central KS. I would have a hard time paying your rates. Most of the RV parks I stay at are under $500.00 for full hookups and I can live there besides...Don

If I could get half that much I would change from storing cars to RV's.

I covered mine once and will never do it again. The covers, even the expensive ones, don't hold up to the sun and wind in the west. They are heavy and requires a lot of walking on the roof. I find it too dangerous and just a PITA to cover the rig and uncover it. When the cover is new it is in a nice small package but once it is opened up it is like getting 20 lb's of stuff in a 5 lb bag.

I am paying $179.00 plus 6.25% sales tax for a total of $190.19 per month for a 50 foot covered "pull through" with electricity and very convenient to my house in Central Texas. I took delivery of this current trailer on June 28th and it has been under cover a total of 11 days. I am on a trip right now and it won't be back under cover until Sept. 19th. Am I crazy or just stupid, it has to be one or the other?

I feel fortunate. We have indoor storage at 55 all winter. I think it's like $3 per linear foot per month. For us, it's around $130 per month.

Tow it here, I think they still have spaces available.

Supply and demand. Costs skyrocketed when the largest storage facility lost their lease. I can store it 2hrs away for $100mo - But this place is literally a trigger pull away. (.50 cal :) )

$200/mo here. I was lucky. The rate has gone up to$240/mo uncovered if you can find a place at all. Just need to keep the pointing up and rig washed and waxed. I noticed that most people that have rigs do not and pay the price. I forgot to add that unless you have unlimited funds, don't even think about inside storage around here. If you have the land, it would be cheaper to get a loan and build a building for it.

$30 a month for outside storage. I park it in the storage facility the end of September and haul it out the beginning of May. It's never been covered yet still looks pretty good for a 9+ year old rig. It's tagged as a 2009 model, but it was built in Feb. 2008.

How often for the wax jobs? If you hire someone - What do you pay?

That is exactly what ours is. 50x16 with 20 amp, concrete floor and power door opener. I think it's worth every penny!

200 a year for outdoor storage in a locked compound is what I pay.

Back in Terrell, TX when we lived in a neighborhood with an HOA that said no trailers, we paid $65 a mo at a secured storage facility for uncovered, and covered was $95 a mo. When they were doing some work to expand the uncovered lot, we got to be in a covered space for same price for about 3 mo!

We park our Prowler next to our house . . . for free!

It ain't covered . . . but it is insured!

Part of the reason we've kept this house all of these years is because we can keep our RV at home and not behind someone else's fence.

Which is a rare comodity in Colorado these days.

When we lived in Boulder and rented out this house we had the option of leaving our camper at our friends house up in the mountains (Woodland Park) . . . but we no longer have that option!

We pay $250.00 per month for covered storage in the Tampa, Fl area. Facility is about 20 mins from house, accessible 24/7. Property manager lives on property, and is monitored by cameras and fence alarms. Each bay has 30 amp service and property has a dump station. A bit steep, but it protects our investment.

Do it myself almost every time before it goes into storage. Once a year is the big clean with ZEP TNT (Truck And Trailer Wash).

We are in Nevada and have just managed to get storage for trailer and truck as we live in the UK. Combined price is $450. That seems to be the going rate round here.

100 a month for covered secured storage. It's part of the development we live in.

I kept all of the RVs I have owned stored outside here in Southeast Florida. Never used a cover because of the trouble of dragging a cover up to the roof.. My outside storage was $130 per month.. I had the trailer waxed 3 times a year. It oxidized as expected but stayed looking good.

I pay $85/mo over here South of Phoenix for a secure 14X65 foot outside storage slot... If I pay for 6 months at a time I get 7 months storage... It is 3 miles from the house...

16 bucks/ft or for me, 96/month (Nov-Apr) indoor storage. When we 1st started using this storage , was 475 for the winter that was '05 into '06. Still far cheaper than 500/month.

I paid $10/ft to store indoors, unheated, until April. It is at our local fairgrounds.

Have you tried one of the bases. Camp Pendleton is 80 a month out door and as long as you wash and wax on a regular basis you are good.

Found close RV storage for a 40 footer here in So Kalifornistan -

Outdoor for $289mo or indoor for $489mo.

The outdoor does allow covers - But I'm not so sure I'll be able to put it on / remove myself. (Back issues.)

Before deciding to go new - We looked at a few that were stored outside uncovered. They all looked terrible because of the sun damage.

What say you...?

Thanx, Sarge

Glad you have found storage but MAN is that expensive compared to what I'm paying here in Nova Scotia Canada. I paid including our tax ,a total of $538.00. for 6 months of inside storage. I couldn't justify inside storage at your cost structure.

I agree with the rest of these posts Sarge, that's a lot of money. I store outside $ 50.00 per month. Indoor heated is $ 5.00 a foot, so to me $ 220.00. I have only covered 1 of our trailers in 20 years, and would NEVER do it again.
