Red Wolf what part of Austin? I currently keep mine in kyle because austin storage lots were so expensive. Paying $36 but 1 hour round trip to pickup. Would be interested for something closer to home.

We use a lot $27.50 a month gated and locked no need for Security. The mennonite folks ( my lineage) live close by no lights, no cars and certainly no fifth wheel horse powered buggies to hitch her up with!

We don't live inside city limits, so there's no zoning laws, much less HOAs. LOL, folks around here would REVOLT!

If the nearest city tries to incorporate the area where we live, we'll MOVE!

DH had 50 amp service installed shortly after we bought the V-Lite last year, so now we park the 5er where the V-lite lived, in the back yard behind a privacy fence. We have motion detector lights and security cameras aimed at it 24/7.

We're going to cut down a large oak this summer and build an "add on" to his shop that will accommodate the 5er. He got on top last evening to install the new antenna and was gob smacked at how DIRTY the roof is already, because of that tree, and we've only had it since January 4th. It's a live oak, and those gnarly limbs has caused sleepless nights for me every time there's a storm. So down she goes, and we'll have plenty of firewood for camping!

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

In the front yard until the city makes me move it. It took them about a year to catch on with the last camper. Then it will be $85/month for outdoor close by storage. Cheaper if I want to drive a ways, which I don't. Love having it in the yard.

$62/month, fenced with coded entry, lit, with security cameras. 2 minutes from home.
Our town refuses to issue any more outside storage permits. I would assume 80% or so of neighborhoods are under an HOA, so you can imagine the waiting list keeps growing.

$100/month. Indoor storage with valet service. Very nice since it at the dealer and service center. Anything needs fixed, added or winterized it gets done when I drop it off.

HOA will not let me store mine on my property, so I have mine about 5 miles away and pay $50 per month. It is gravel and fenced and I was lucky enough to land one of the corner spaces that allows for full extension for the slide out.

Also HOA in our case.
We pay $35/month for fenced and guarded outside storage 2 miles from home.
The guard dogs are 2 Yorkies, they would probably give the keys to anyone .
