Campsite storage
 
Curious what everyone does with bikes etc. at campsite? Don't want to leave bikes in rain. Thought about a tent?

We park them close to the camper under the awning.

not many campgrounds will let you put up a tent along with a trailer. We keep out bikes under awning if possible. They get wet on the bike rack, so only so much can be done. How about a tarp?

Did the tent thing and it worked okay. Did the covering with a tarp locked to the tongue as well.

Georgia State Parks will, depending on the size of your RV vs the size of the site. I have never had a problem with theft, or even heard of a problem, while saying in a State Park. Keeping stuff dry is another issue.

What will get the rangers on you in a hurry is tying off ropes to trees. A simple "tarp over a rope" would be an ideal solution but the trees are off limits. With a 5th wheel the area under the pinbox is a natural storage spot for just about anything.

A $100 pop up tent may be the way to go, plus there is the "out of sight, out of mind" benefit for security of your stuff.

I'd go with a tarp. You can keep the firewood dry under it too.

We never had problems with theft (knock on wood) but I noticed my kids would leave their bikes under our TT, (which I thought is was a great idea....gotta let them figure it out for themselves at times).

Now that we have a MH I haven't really paid much attention what they do with them but then again it hasn't rained in California .....:crying:

We just lean them against a tree or the back of the trailer and cover them with a tarp. We use a couple of bungee cords to hold it in place if it is windy. They stay dry and don't clog up the awning area.

Under the nose of the 5'r.

Under our HTT bunks. Same as when we had a popup. No locks - our bikes aren't theft-worthy.
