Cover it or use a Storage site...

I have been debating on how to take care of my RV while I am not using it. We have a new storage company here offering 15X35 fully enclosed individual garages with 110 hookup as well as a dump station and water to wash your RV for about $150 a month. I purchased a cover and am probably going to send it back. Just too risky getting up on the RV over and over. I feel keeping it covered will greatly increase how long I can enjoy it. Is the $150 a month a good rate?

Neither. Just let it sit outside. Just like your house.

$150? Only if I were crazy wealthy. That's a lot of money per month for me for a place to park it but everyone has their own budget. Only you can truly answer that.

The point of keeping it out of the weather when I'm not using seems to make sense to me. If we plan to use it 3-4 months out of the year, keeping it out of the sun for the remaining 8 can do nothing but help it's value. Dry outdoor storage around here starts at $75 a month and up.....then you have to worry about theft and vandalism.....

Wish I could find one for that rate here in Ohio.

But that said it is nice when the ice storms came through recently to not have to worry since ours was in a garage storage and out of all of it.

Preferences and finances dictate.

Thought about covers originally but read too many stories of them flapping and rubbing off finish etc. so we went the garage storage route.

I ordered a cover and it came in today. (37 pounds) My wife and I went outside to give it a try....we couldn't even get it on the top of the RV without feeling unsafe. Boxed it back up and called the storage place who told me they have a waiting list for their yet to be built units. Negotiated a deal with him and hopefully will be able to occupy in April.

I pay $130 for outside covered with none of the amenities you have included.

If I could get your deal I'd jump at it.

If the cover is properly folded it is fairly easy to put on due to the fact you are never dealing with the total weight. Our cover is 45lbs. and I'm 86 and DW is 83 and we cover with no problem.

Covered storage

I pay $48 a month for carport-type storage. No amenities except fairly good security, but the roof over my trailer keeps the sun off (and anything else falling out of the sky). I'm pretty sure it's a great deal.

Yes, that is good. Parking outdoors here in not so good areas runs $50.
