I agree. The UV rays and heat destroy

1. Rubber roof
2. Caulking around roof penetrations
3. Rubber - everywhere it is exposed
4. Tires
5. Paint--fading it and eventually oxidation problems
6. Windshield wipers
7. Did I say tires?

It isn't just one thing, it's many all at the same time.

You have an investment. Nurture it.

Unfortunately, my storage is 50 miles away with coverage on the top and 3 sides. It costs $150 monthly but that includes 50 amp power. I consider it well worth the investment.

Here in PA, I pay $250 a month for indoor / individual space / heated with electric. Would love to pay less, but would not give up the spot for the world.

I keep all my toys in covered storage.

Savings......$1,000.

Your circumstances may be totally different.
While it's unfortunate that you have too or want to get it repainted.....at $200 more per month after 13 years....I think you saved considerably more. We full time and while the luxury of covering it is best....you seldom get to park under a shed when your using it.

I would gladly JUMP on that $129 as I'm hit monthly for $199. I wouldn't keep anything in uncovered storage ever again. Just that sitting there baking in the sun just kills these things.

Living in NM, I have to agree with everyone, covered storage is the way to go. I pay alot also, but my fiver and now coach were much better off. You spent alot of money on the purchase, whats a little more? Also when I sold my 5'er, I got top dollar because being in covered storage. my 2 cents.

We did the same thing. Went the route of wrestling an ADCO cover for several years then decided to build the RV port. Below is just after it was finished (before the mesh sunscreen panels were added)

The nice thing was we made it plenty long enough so we can easily hook the toad without getting wet if it's raining.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

True, most of the time, but there are many exceptions.


With the normal depreciation of motorhomes, they all take a huge hit during the first few years, then they all stabilize in resale value. It's more a matter of maintenance, general appearance, and what is broken and doesn't work at the time of resale that determines the resale price.

As mentioned above, fulltimers expose their coach 24/7/365 for years or decades. However, they typically maintain them, (and replace parts as necessary including the roof, awnings, carpet, upholstery, curtains, blinds, plumbing fixtures, etc....), meticulously.

If you have shopped for used motorhomes, you will quickly discover that a well cared for motorhome that has never been covered may be worth much more than a neglected but very well stored motorhome.
