Looks like my rental, except I don't have heat. Nice!

I have a rented covered storage unit that plays double duty. It's located by one of our favorite lakes. During the summer we store our deck boat there and keep the TT in the driveway. During the winter I switch them out. I'd rather keep the TT under cover due to some of the crazy weather we get in Missouri. Wish I was able to keep both at the house during the winter months. Don't use the TT typically during Dec - Feb.

Used to park our camper at home when we owned an Aliner. Traded up to a '13 FR T21FS Shockwave late last year. We would have to remove a tree or two and extend the concrete slab on our secondary driveway to accomidate the new TT. Was told by the city that we couldn't park on the street for long stretches. I found an outdoor storage place 10 miles from home, gated, security cameras, well lit 24 hour access and next to the highway for easy access for $22 a month. I hope to have a spot for it next to the house by next winter.

I have to store my 38 ft. motorhome about 8 miles away from my house as I live in a HOA. I pay $27.50 a month. I get this good deal because I pay upfront for a year.

The local covered storage will cost me $154 a month. Too much for me.

We're lucky to live in a waterfont community (we're on the cheap, dry side of the street) where abgout 60% of the residents have boats or RV's. We put a third section of concrete driveway in place of the dirt alongside the garage and that's where we keep our MH. Our Class C was a 96" wide rig and our current Class A is 102". We took aboiut 8" off the roof overhang to get enough width. Unfortunately, we kept the gutter at the original height to keep a mitred corner functional. Unfortunately, that's too low to open the house door.

When fully stowed. the rig sticks out past the corner of the garage about 8 feet, but that's a lot less than some neighbors' boats and RVs. but I have to back it out about 7 feet if we want to acess the house door.

I'm planning to make the garage side gutter independent of the one across the front and raise it to the top of the soffit of the shortened roof. That will give enoguh clearance to open the house door.

I'm not sure I'm going to go to the trouble, as it's distinctly possible we'll have to sell. It's already marginal on operating expenses for retirees on pensions, and if WA State hits gas tax with an additional 11 cents a gallon, that might be the death knell for us, when combined with the increases in CG fees we've seen the last season.

We just bought a TT and don't have room at the house. Being on the east coast it seems our storage fees are a bit higher. We pay $80/month for outside but fenced lot. I figured it was cheaper than moving.

We are currently paying $35/month to store our 15' Apex at a yard just 2 miles from the house. That fee will be going up to 60/MO in a few days after we pick up our new Cougar which is double the length
