Stored the motor home in a mine today...

We took our motor home to a mine today to store it for the next 4-5 months - sad day, but cool experience in the mine. Temp and humidity controlled for a reasonable rate. They said they have 2300 vehicles stored there this year and that they're full! Here's a video of driving to the parking spot inside - enjoy!!! Sorry - just a picture as the video is 'too large' - only 30.6 mb - it should load. Maybe I'll put it up zipped if I can...no format works - maybe videos are not allowed...

Over the summer I went to an underground industrial complex near Kansas City. It was huge, over 100 acres. In researching where I was (didn't know I was going to a mine until I got there), I learned there's quite a few of them around Kansas City. They are in old limestone mines. The largest is SubTropolis. It's over 1000 acres. It has over 6 miles of roads and 2 miles of railroad tracks!

Very interesting storage option, If I may ask what do they charge per month?
I have a rented spot in Pole building along with an antique ladder truck and another MH. I'm paying $125 per month and it's not temp controlled or with electric.

I'm paying $105/mo for temp/humidity control...and they do have a way to access, take it out, and bring it back if we want too - we probably won't with the unpredictable weather unfortunately...you can't work on it there or anything like that - simply storage but it's a lot cheaper than others. We were quoted $450/mo locally for heated/electric and full access - not sure you can work on it, but that's alot of money we thought...

Thanks for the heads up on that, I was just curious. We have nothing around here like that.
The price I'm paying for my spot is cheap according to our area. I'll probably stick with it unless the owner raises the rent. My alterative is to park it outside again in a storage yard.

I looked into one here several years ago. They had a good rate but I would have been required to empty the propane tank before storing it, but not winterizing it would have been great.
