In my side yard, behind the fence. Yard is rocked and 2x6's lay below the new tires to keep them dry and ready to roll at a moments notice.

We keep ours at a storage lot. Would like to keep it at home but code enforcement and the wife say otherwise.

Ours is kept at the end of our driveway on the side of our house. We have 4 1/2 acres of property on a Mtn. top , overlooking the Hudson Valley section of NY. (yeah, Its not to easy getting the 831FKBSS up here but in low gear, the Hemi makes it up faily easy) anyway, I dug up an area 12ft wide X 40ft long and put down landscaping 4X4's and put down black mesh to keep weeds from growing, then back filled it with 4 inches deep of smooth "beach stone" and then spiked down doubled up 2X10s for the wheels to sit on. I also put a drainage system underneath the whole area so It would'nt turn into a swamp. A lot of work but in the end it was well worth it. One of these days Ill get around to posting some pics of the TT and the area it sits on

As promised, I ran outside yesterday in between rainstorms and took a few pictures of the trailer pad I built

I had the driveway widened to 30 feet from the original width of 16 feet and extended it up along the side of the garage 35 feet and the V-Lite sits next to the garage plugged into the 30 amp service I had my electrician run from the generator breaker panel. I also had the cement guy sink 4 "I" bolts into the corners of the cement pad when he pored it so I can strap the tt down in case of storms which are not uncommon here in FL. The cement work cost me about 5K, but I now have a huge area to park and store the tt. (and less grass to mow!)

Nice parking pad Don. I am wanting to do just as you did but seeing how I live on the side of a rather steep hill, I'll have to wait till I can find a considerable amount of backfill.

Oh, mines' in my driveway, argh.

I didn't get a chance to clean the Trailer pad up when I took the pictures but I got around to the clean up this weekend. BTW...I'm very proud of my spare tire cover...been a Yankees fan for 50 years and will be until my last breath...my wife bought the cover for me for my birthday a few years back...Got a great wife!!!!
