High-security storage lot. Outside, unfortunately. Stored smaller units inside on concrete off-season for 10 years for cheap. Township and plat restrictions prohibit RV storage at home [sigh].

At our rental house that has a 200ft deep lot and alley access so there is room to park it at the end of the lot off the alley. I've also run 30 amp service from the 3 car garage that I also built on the back of the lot so can do anything necessary with full power. The only thing better would be if it were next to my house instead of the rental (6 miles away).

We own a vacant lot beside our house. I'm having a local contractor bring in some drainage stone so I'll have proper pad for the trailer. No more rectangles of dead grass around the lot.

Although we have 3.5 acres the HOA says no trailer storage so we have ours in covered rental storage. BTW, current HOA board member does not want to see RVs at all, not even to stage for a trip.

Thread hijack:

Does this 1 board member run the show or are there other folks on the board?

From what I've read here & on other boards, I don't know how folks could live in an area w/ a HOA. Sounds like a magnet for uptight, nosy people w/ nothing better to do than snoop on neighbours .

Same here.

My HOA "allows" RV's/TT's/Pop-ups, as long as they are not visible.....and has no provision on how to hitch, load, service, etc, to their satisfaction.

It's kinda like a little game we play in my neighborhood ..... "can you load faster than the response time for the sheriff & HOA board secret-police".

They call the sheriff & report that you have the right of way blocked and have stopped traffic on the road (reality is that your tow vehicle when hitched, is 2' longer than your driveway and blocks the sidewalk (not the street) for the 45 minutes yr loading). Funny thing is .... The sidewalk terminates at my property ... so I'm officially blocking "the road to nowhere".

The "annonymous callers" from "nosy & self-righteous central" usually call the cops within 5 minutes of me pulling in the driveway to load & sheriff usually arrives in about 30 minutes (HOA "champions" are there in 10). "His-high-holliness-of-the HOA" usually arrives in about 35-45 minutes.

Sheriff and I usually have a good talk & laugh while I'm loading the trailer (I always grab some Dunkin Donughts or Panera goodies for officer-friendly when I go out to get the trailer) and he keeps the dudley-do-rights off my lawn as they decry my abuse of the HOA policies and preach the impending-doom for all civilized life (and property values) in our community, due to my monthly 42-minutes of satanic trailer loading.

If all goes well, I'm rolling back out in about 40 minutes & give a friendly wave to "his-High-Holliness-of-the-HOA" & the sheriff gives the "HOA prophets" a little talking-to about wasting community resources for silly stuff like this.

Sometimes they sulk & shrink back into their secret spy bunkers & start generating written propaganda ballots to have me tared-and-feathered or drawn-and-quartered, at the next board meeting. Every once in a while they get enough peeps together on the occasional board meetings I miss (because I'm camping) and vote to levy a fine on me.

I usually win ... but it's a $150.00 fine from the HOA if I don't

Park it beside the garage with Koender granular bait stations placed by it to keep the mice away.
Bait Stations, Rodent Control, Rodent Traps, Skunk Traps, Raccoon Traps, Live Traps

Also let my BIL and another friend park their trailer there for the winter.
