Is this the place you are using? Sounds like a great place.
Innerspace Storage Corp.

"Our facility naturally stays 60 degrees year round and offers protection from extreme temperatures of heat and freezing," Roberts says. Dehumidifiers ensure the moisture content of the caves remains low. Also, there are no ultraviolate rays or worries from storm damage such as hail, tornados, rain or snow. Although busy year round, demand for storage is heaviest during the winter months "because customers don't have to winterize their units saving them money," Roberts asserts.

"We use a valet-type system for storage," says Roberts. This ensures vehicles are parked safely. "The customer drops off his unit outside the facility in the parking lot, and it is placed and parked by our staff." The customer is issued a warehouse receipt for his vehicle. When a customer wants to pick it up again, he notifies Innerspace staff, and it is brought outside for pickup. Clients can visit their vehicles if they need to, but no one has unescorted access to the underground facility, Roberts says. An employee accompanys a client to his space. If he needs access to his vehicle for more than a few minutes, it is pulled out and parked in the lot.

Out of the sun and weather, warm and cozy, awesome security, and "delivery service".

Great price too....
My sister stored her pop-up last winter at an indoor facility and the owner pierced the back while moving it around It's a Coleman, and they can't get a new part, so they have to live with it. Free storage for a while, but what else will he damage?

ah, that makes sense!

For some reason I was picturing a forklift picking the trailer up and moving it like a palletized load.......

That's it. It's about 2 miles from my house. There are caves all around Kansas City. The largest is owned by the Hunt family who owns the Kansas City Chiefs. The others don't seem to be as secure and I like the idea of them moving it in and out. When I talked to them they said several of their customers take their TT out every weekend. I guess pricing is all relative but in the midwest prices are generally lower than in the rest of the country.

I wish I had covered access available. Nothing here like that and the intense Florida sun 12 months a year. I will likely buy a cover but will require assistance with climbing on the roof and placing it over the motorhome. Still it will be worth the trouble to protect the finish from the UV damage. I agree with the comment about moisture and humidity underground. Aren't there silica bags you could buy like we have in our safe?

They use giant humidifiers to keep humidity down. I went and looked at them on Friday. It's really pretty cool, no pun intended. The security guy wouldnt let me in without calling them. When i looked at the dropoff point, i saw the biggest fifth wheel ive ever seen. At first I thought it was a motorhome but then I noticed the forklift guy start to hook up to it. They said it can get pretty busy there on Sundays and holidays but theres always plenty of room. The parking lot is huge. I have to admit driving inside the caves is disorienting so Im glad they move the trailers after you drop them off. The ceilings are probably 20 feet high or so and the rock is painted white so its not claustrophobic but its definitely different to drive in there.

So after visiting, I pulled the trigger and paid them for the storage. I'm planning on keeping this TT for a long time so I think the difference in cost will be worth it by avoiding the freezing/thawing, hail, snow, sun, etc. Thanks to everyone for the advice.

If the Govt can use this similar storage for priceless documents, 0 humidity change, 0 temp change, more than good enough for an RV. Wished we had a "Magic Moutain"

I think you made the right call. If we had that where I live, I would be there...
