Thinking about Class A, Storage questions

We are thinking about buying a new Winnebago Tour 42' and not sure how to store it. When we had our 2007 Dynasty in Montana, we had an individual, fully insulated and enclosed garage with power. (Finding out that is rare.) Now in Florida there is no where reasonable close that offers indoor storage. It makes me sick to think of a $260,000 investment being exposed to the elements everyday and not have any power to it. Am I correct that this is terrible for the coach? What do others do?

Inside is better, but motor homes are meant to be outside. New motor homes are paint outside and not decals. They are much more resistant to the sun. But of course it is always better to garage a vehicle if you can. Don't let it stop you from buying a fun RV though.

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

We have always had our MH covered. I know they are made for outside but the weather can damage any finish. I like to keep covered for the roof more then any other part of the finish. We don't have power to the coach but don't find that a problem. We run our MH every 2 weeks along with the generator for 1/2 hr. or about 30 miles. we run the MH for the tires more then anything else. In Florida you get to use your MH more with the good weather, so no power again I think is no big deal.
