Where to store a fifth wheel

Hey, we are in the process of purchasing a 39' fifth wheel. How do you find a good place to store it when not in use? What is you criteria for a storage location? Thanks for your help!

Side of the house, if the city or HOA allows it. We had to pour a concrete slab on ours since the city did not allow it on grass. There are RV storage places and also the storage unit places will let you park it out back...for a price.

Out of the sun is the biggest importance, and of course security like Cliff said.

I store my new fifthwheel in storage that is covered out of the weather. The cost is 225.00 a month but worth the money. Cleaning up keep on roof and custom paint is protected.

I wanted my 5th wheel at home so I can tinker on it and perform maintenance whenever I want. Also, I like to keep my eagle-eye on things. We erected a metal carport behind the house, and have an RV power pedestal there. The off-site storage isn't bad for the price, but I like being able to access mine often.

Since HOA will not allow at the house, we store ours at a secured storage facility (think mini-warehouse storage). It is gated with a code to access. They have a large lot for RVs in the back behind the buildings. Ours is uncovered, no electric nearby. We pay $45 a mo.

We are fortunate to be able to store on the back of our property - fenced area.

if I were having to store off-site:

Security
Covered
Power
Close to home
Flexible access hours

Thanks for all the advice. I guess we will be researching all the secure storage companies nearby. We were hoping to find covered, electric with a pull-through space for our 39' fifth wheel. Do many of these exist?

We don't have anything like that in our area. If you find something like that it will be big bucks. The only ones I've seen that are covered with power are usually pole barns in a property.

If you want to spend the money you could find a permanent campsite, but it won't be covered. We don't cover ours except during the winter times.

Where to store fifth wheel

Had a 45ft metal building built to keep ou fiver out of the weather. The cost was reasonable and it is kept out of the elements which greatly helps resale value when you trade up.

Get on google maps and do a search for rv storage near insert your address here ---
We found covered and electricity if I want within 8 miles and $65/mth for our 41' 5er... if I wanted 20 amp 110v to plug in I could for $10 more per mth, but rarely need it...
