We did the math and found that installing a 50A outlet & pouring a pad big enough to have the slides open and park the truck (hooked up and ready to roll) was worth the cost ($2300) when compared to storage @ $99/MO with only 110V for several reasons:

1. Easy to go out and work on the unit - if I forget a tool I just go to the garage not cuss all the way back home from storage
2. Break even ROI in 23 months
3. Lower (slightly) RV insurance (~$8/MO)
4. Can prep for a trip MUCH easier than storage
5. Trip day is a simple get in, start engine and GO!
I would say that you certainly make the right choice considering those reasons given.

I been thru HSV once - looks like a very nice place.

Isn't that where there's a place that sells unclaimed airline baggage?

We're lucky enough to have plenty of room. Ours sits in front of one of our garage doors.

Have stored our in doors since new. The charge is $329.00 per year, with the year starting October to June. They also do all the moving and parking so there is no question as to who damaged the rig, if any. We can also remove and replace it anytime we want.

We pay $45/month for storage. Outdoor,pull through spot on crushed concrete, fenced, guarded, 24/7 access about 15-20 minutes from home. I wish we could store it a home but our HOA doesn't allow it.

I used to pay $60/month for a30' covered spot. They increased their rent to $90/month. Luckily for me my sister and brother-in-law moved to town and bought a place nearby with an awning available for me to use.
A win win because they're welcome to use my trailer to take their grand kids and I get free parking. In reality they were welcome to use the trailer anyway, lol.
