Indoor storage in Los Angeles

Help required!!!
I need to move my coach to Los Angeles for 12 months (from Dallas)
I live in Australia but due to commitments here I can only do 2 week trips and logically easier to do out of LA.
Ive been searching the net
I need indoor/under cover storage with power within 50 miles of LAX.
Can I please have some input from learned ladies and gents on where I can place my beloved 45' Signature and Subaru towed.

You could try Benchmark RV and talk to Mike O'Brian the owner. They have inside power storage but it is usually full.

Palmdale, California is due north of LA, around 65 miles away from LAX, with good freeways. Do a google search for RV storage in Palmdale and you'll get several hits.

I wonder why you want power though? Just disconnecting your battery grounds will keep them from going dead over several months of storage.

Here's where I park mine: Antelope Express Home Page

They have a $5/day storage charge and a shuttle to/from LAX. Very convenient. Fenced all around. I just disconnect my batteries and lock it up. The RV parking isn't covered but the weather is fair in the valley, since it's a desert.

I know that Megellan Storage has indoor 45' spaces in Costa Mesa, right near the John Wayne Airport (45 miles south of LAX). They also have locations in LA, but I don't know if they also include indoor storage. Self Storage Locations - Magellan Storage

I've had a response from Benchmark and they said they would try and fit me in
However Valley Indoor RV Storage in Chatsworth seem to be welcoming at $450 per month for the coach and another $70-80 for the towed.
It's indoors which I much prefer and a shuttle to Lax.

Has anybody got any knowledge good or bad about this facility??

It's quite a bit dearer than Lewisville Tx but 1200 miles closer to the west coast. So for shorter breaks this would be ideal.
We loved NIRV in Texas - great people and full service centre. We also became very attached to Grapevine Tx.
Plan is to leave Lewisville 1st week of December on a repositioning trip to Los Angeles. I'm guessing I 40 is out and I 10 is in for the trip???
Can I get a vote on that??

I-10 would be the route. You will go through a couple of Border Patrol check points. Not a problem with those

I'm looking at Rabsio RV Storage in Nowalk
It seems to be a full storage facility. Has anybody seen any reviews on this place
I haven't had a reply to my email so far
It's only 30 miles from LAX - it might be very expensive

I believe that is the site of the former Fleetwood manufacturing facility. It is huge and well secured. Check out the owners Prevost when you get there. I put flooring in a coach there 5 years ago.

Well I've booked a spot at Rabsio RV Storage at Norwalk
Never been to Norwalk. Don't know if it's in the middle of a war zone???
It looks like the closest decent Campground is at Long Beach.
I'll do some recognisance when we get to LA
We need 2 overnights to recover from jet lag and restock the coach.
I'd be interested if anyone has a better plan

Thanks for all the advice
Rabsio is exactly what I expected
They also took us to LAX for $70
They will pick us up on our return.
They have 50amp hookup, will move the car every month and Cal-western Rv will pick up the coach for service.
