Place to leave my RV for 2-3 days-Vancouver Area

Hello, we're passing through Vancouver and wanted to head over to Victoria for a few nights and leave the RV somewhere. Id rather not pay a campground prices to let it sit empty. Any suggestions of a secure location to leave it?

I'm going to assume you mean Vancouver BC and not Vancouver WA. The original West coast Vancouver is located just north of Portland OR.

Looks like I'll just drop it off at the shop for some work while we're on the island. Kill two birds with one stone.

The other one referenced is in WA not OR. Back the geography lessons in the tragic valley.

Now that everyone has given you a hard time about BC versus WA, we should really start helping you. I don't know enough about BC Ferries to help with where to leave it, but it might help to understand which of several ferries you are thinking of taking and whether you are walking on or taking a vehicle.

Only one ferry actually lands in Victoria. That is the Black Ball Line out of Port Angeles, WA. It lands walking distance to downtown making the walk on option work pretty well or bicycle). There is parking near the ferry dock.

The Anacortes WA ferry and the Twawwassen, BC ferry both land at Sydney which is about 10 miles from Victoria (distance is a WAG) but close enough to use public transportation and a good bike path. There are other routes that would require a car. There is parking at the Anacortes dock but I am not sure about RVs.

If you did like to bike we have taken bikes with camping gear on both Port Angeles and Anacortes ferries.
