I bought out house long before ever thinking of buying a camper. Storage lot for me.

Stored at home. Got its own parking spot under a metal cover, concrete floor, and 30 amp power.

I bought a house with RV storage that I thought I would never use. Having the Storage area actually helped me buy an RV. Without it I would have never bought one.

My storage fee is actually included in my seasonal camping fees where the trailer stays year round. I have access to the trailer anytime I want. I like to check on it monthly to make sure the cover is doing its job.

Our house and lot are too small for the fifth wheel and it's also against the HOA rules. We pay $35 a month for fenced outside storage.

We have an acre lot, plenty of room, an RV shelter and 30 amp and 50 amp circuits. My cousin periodically visits with his motor home and parks along side our RV. Now, I just need a sewer hook up and I could call it an RV park! LOL!

We live on 10 acres, and when our electrician buddy was helping build our garage we ended up with a couple "rv sites" his own included for when he comes fishing. I love my camp driveway in the summer, wifi, direct tv, etc. During the winter we are fortunate enough to store it indoors in FILs pole shed about 10 miles away. So I check it every few weeks for critters or whatever, knock on wood this is our third winter and no issues.

I have enough room to park it at my house. But in the U.P. of Michigan where we get 200" to 300" of snow I prefer it to go indoors. I found a private airplane hanger 2 miles from us and he charges $400 for the season. Now I'm trying to decide to build metal roof to cover it or put the money to drive it south every winter to keep it clean.

We have acreage, and converted our 60' X 60' barn to toy storage. No birds, no raccoon's, no elements to expose the parked trailer to. I built a driveway to it from the road, added a 60 amp service box, a 30 amp outlet, and wired the entire barn with 20 amp plug-ins and overhead lights. We put a 14' X 12' roll-up door in the wall facing the road, and parking the trailer is a breeze.

Pull vehicle is parked in a totally enclosed 20' X 60' machine shed, which we added wiring and a roll-up door to.

Overall, this is a perfect setup for us.
