Long term storage

Hi
We Just bought a 2015 40xl bh Berkshire

We are non us citizens and plan to arrive from time to time for a few months and travel across the United States Canada and Mexico .

Some people say we are crazy,are we 😎????

One problem we didn't solve ,,,is the storage!!

we are going to end each trip at another part of the country

It's a big rig and we are looking for an indoor or covered storage .

Any suggestions ??

Thanks

Yechiam

Any particular area of the country you want to store it?

The only part of your plan that sounds crazy to me is going into Mexico.

You can find storage in most cities in the US. You say that you will end each trip in another part of the country, so you would need to determine where you are going to end up, then search for storage in that area. Just google "RV storage" or something like that along with the name of the city. You might want to do that in advance so you would be sure to have the storage lined up before you got to the area.

What about trying to arrange something with a rental company? A couple of years ago there was a thread on here about a guy who did that with his TT. Only used it about 2 months out of the year and rented it out the other 10. He had a company he dealt with that handled everything and only had to notify them when he was planning to use it so they could make sure it didn't get booked.

If you could find something like that, that's also a national chain, then you should be able to arrange drop off and pickup anywhere around the country. It might even help you get the RV from place to place without having to drive it there yourself. Just think, drop off in Florida one year, next year fly into California and pick it up. No need to have to fly back to where you left from.

For the right fee, I'll go get it for you and bring it to your next locale.

Try BWI RV storage in Baltimore. We store ours in their indoor storage during the winter.

Oh. I generally agree. I was just trying to give the OP an alternative option. One way to look at it is as an investment. Yes, your RV will depreciate faster with all the wear and tear, but that's offset by rental income. Almost like getting the months you do use it for free.

Still, I wouldn't personally rent mine. Who wants to rent an TT that they can't use on weekends? : D
