Couldn't stand to have the rig uncovered all year what with all the rain we get. Have it stored under an RV port on gravel. Use tire covers on the sunny side. Tinted windows keeps the sun off of most of the interior.

KC has literally millions of square feet of limestone caves that are used for commercial warehousing/storage. They have roads that are wide enought for 2 semi's to pass each other. Almost anything can be (and is) stored in these caves.
Been there with my semi. Awesome caves!

Where? Just off the presses: in our hangar!

DW and I live in a private community SW of Ft. Worth, on an airpark. No, not all of the community is an airpark, quite the opposite. Over 90% of our households have nothing to do with aviation. But, those of us with hangars beside our homes are at a distinct advantage, in RV terms. A recent arrival to the RV scene, I'd never imagined a Class A would be part of my future; so, my hangar RV door was way too small. For the last two weeks, I've cut out a new doorway in the building, and now our Fleetwood is indoors!!

Amazing, how much better Batgirl looks, indoors.

Our old Beast is parked on a flood plain about 85 miles from where we live on THE Tippecanoe River. It's being used as our weekend cabin year 'round. We have a couple of good neighbors keeping an eye on it and if it floods again, we'll just drive it off to our neighbors place. No cover, but it is parked on wood blocks. I figure as long as I keep the exterior finish up, it'll be OK!!!

We live in a townhouse, so no on-site storage option. We have used commercial storage lots for years with no problems, but some nearby vandalism and theft kept us worried and made me keep checking and paying my insurance. I posted a Craigslist ad to see if some local property owner was willing to host our coach for storage, and a lady who has a small acreage nearby responded. I am parking the coach beside her drive and it is pretty much out of sight from any roads, yet easily accessible, and a reasonable financial deal for both of us. I would love covered storage, but with the cost and the fact that our coach is in use 1/3 of the year, this is what we can do.

We had a steel building built. At first it was only going to be an RV port but we decided to go with enclosing it and put in a 14 foot door. We get some heavy wind and the sun can do a lot of damage.

We are in Wisconsin and still looking for indoor storage. Very hard to find once you get past 40ft. We are stored outside in a secure boat yard. Certainly not ideal. Also, I have opted for not covering, and waxing
2x per year. I have heard that with the gel coat exterior, covering may not be the best option if moisture stays underneath.

We're in NE Minnesota by Lake Superior. I had a 15x40' garage with 14' door installed on an 5" thick 15x40' concrete slab. Since the motor home was never under shelter its first 6 years we wanted it to last a few more years so the garage was built. Now it is stored in this garage from November through April and between summer trips. The garage has 30 amp electrical, water and sewer (septic system).

Question Outside

We live in a Gated Community and the RV is parked and READY to go anytime. Of course I would like to find a covered storage spot.
