Short Term Storage Question

Hello! We are spending time in a RV park in Conroe TX, then flying to Las Vegas for a 4 night get away, before flying back to pick up the rig and head home to Colorado.

We have never broken up our trips like this and need a short term storage solution.

Any tips, suggestions, ideas..............

Thank you in advance!

Unless there is a nearby storage facility that will take a daily/weekly rate I'd just pay the RV park rate and tell then you'll be back in a couple days.

Sometimes you just gotta let go of them Ben Frank's and chalk it up to doing business and not worry about who's doing what to your stuff.

Most parks let store your RV without hookups for a reduced rate. Check with them.

couple of ideas

I asked at the desk of an RV park to store my motorhome for about a week with only my fridge running ... AC and furnace off ... they charged me half price for the days we were gone ...

they can't anymore than say no.

I have a friend who stores his motorhome in the long term parking area at the airport

There is a Sam's Club in Conroe. If you are a member, the manager *Might* allow it. Can't hurt to ask.

We sometimes take four or five day trips away from the motorhome for various reasons during our summer treks. We have found it just as easy to leave the rv on the campground lot. It is relatively safe, we can keep shore power on, and, most important to us, when we return all we have to do is unlock the door, turn the water on and we are set to go. For us, the convenience is worth the cost.

Do you belong to any organizations like VFW, American Legion or Elks.
They all have parking lots and appreciate visitors. More secure than Walmart.
