Outside cover or indoor storage

I am debating on how to store my 1998 Pace Arrow for the winter. Should I buy a cover for $200 and leave it outside or store indoors for $100 per month. The cover is of course cheaper but is there an issue with outside storage? I live in WI. so the storage will be 5-6 months.

If you find an inside storage for $100 a month, jump on it. Covers are not fun. I have seen ice and heavy wet snow freeze and break A/C covers and vent covers. Then you deal with wind whipping it round. One trip up a ladder with a cover will turn you off

I'm incredibly jealous that you can get indoor storage for you RV for $100/month. It's a bit of a challenge finding outdoor storage for that much around here.

As cheap as it is, park it indoors!

Went thru 2 separate covers in 4 years.....the wind just destroys them. And left it outside for a few winters. Hard on paint, tires, dirt inside, varmints. I rent a enclosed storage, with 110v. $110 a month. Well, well worth it.

Inside trumps cover any day. Had a cover for 3 season - just see the Adco pics in my photo albums.

And if you can get it that cheap (closest around me is over $300/mo), jump on it.

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

Since you are asking about a cover, it sounds like you have a place to park it. Is there a possibility of having a carport or garage built on that spot?

I had a semi enclosed carport built a few years back which has been a blessing. I didn't have the know how for building it myself but even with hiring a company to do it, it only cost around $4000 dollars. Versus renting storage, it doesn't take long to pay for itself.

I Paid 200.00 a month in Northern Calif. It still was better than putting a cover on it! I now have a garage that it fits in. Regards

Nope - central OH...& it's only for 40ft or under. It could be climate controlled. I darned well think it should be for that price, but I don't know. Once I saw the price, I didn't investigate further.

My thoughts, exactly....$290 here for COVERED parking...not even indoors! :-)

I have to agree with all said, I too have purchased covers and they just don't last... I will say they look great when there first put on, but after that...

OK, just wondered. Actually for $110 per month the place is heated to 50 degrees. Old factory now closed. There are a ton of storages garages here, must be the business to be in.
