As an RV owner, you understand that there is nothing like the feeling of cruising along a wide-open highway towards your next big adventure. The enduring appeal of the RV lifestyle continues to grow as a new generation of RVers discovers that owning an RV is a cost-effective way to travel almost anywhere in the country. RVing offers freedom from the hassles of airline schedules and is a convenient and pleasurable way to spend vacations outdoors with family and friends.
For more than 100 years, recreational vehicles have been traversing the nation’s highways and scenic byways. Today, the most popular RV types in the United States are folding camping trailers, lightweight travel trailers, compact motorhomes, Type C motorhomes, and Type A motorhomes.
WHY YOU NEED RV STORAGE
Parking an RV in front of your home can be a challenge if you live in a neighborhood with CC&Rs. Homeowner associations regulate the use and appearance of neighborhoods and rarely permit RVs to be on the streets or in driveways for an extended period.
City ordinances also regulate parking on private property as well as city streets, and they can prohibit you from parking oversized vehicles in front of your home except for the purpose of loading or unloading. Some cities even restrict the amount of time this is allowed to 48 hours in a one-week period. Be sure to check your city ordinances to find out about RV parking rules.
This leaves RV owners asking, “Where can I store my RV?” and wondering, "How much is RV storage going to cost?" RV storage fees vary, and can range anywhere from $75 up to $450 per month or more depending on the size of your RV, where you live, and the type of RV storage features you choose. These may seem like high storage fees, but consider the price range of RVs. Lightweight folding camping trailers can sleep up to eight people, and range in cost from $5,000 to $22,000. On the other end of the spectrum, Type A motorhomes are the roomiest and most luxurious of all RVs and typically start at $60,000 and range in price all the way up to $500,000.
An investment in any recreational vehicle is substantial and represents an investment that you will want to protect from theft and vandalism as well as from overexposure to sun, wind, and snow when not in use. RV owners use self storage facilities as a safe place to park their vehicles in between trips as well as for winter storage when freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall can cause damage. Whether you purchase a motorhome, camper trailer, or sport utility trailer, you want to enjoy it for years to come. In between trips and vacations, there are several advantages to parking at a well-lit, secure, and reliable Metro RV storage facility.
