So the city is cracking down on many violations throughout and I need to move my trailer from my moms driveway. Instead of charging a permit fee.

So does anyone in Los Angeles or surrounding area know of a place with decent prices? I've found $55-$200. $55 sounds better but can't remember the name

I'm in NJ and had to rent 2 20 foot spaces back to back at 120 a month. that is a decent price considering people with extra yard space are charging 75 a week and you have limited access to it. i would expect similar prices on the west coast.

I couldn't imagine living somewhere and not being able to have my TT at home. Just more money being taken away from the camping budget.

In San Diego the going rate for uncovered storage is $6/ft. So a 40ft coach pays $240/mo. Inside storage is not even something that I could consider....I would like it...just wouldn't consider paying that much.

Sounds great until your trailer gets stolen or burglarized, locks are broken, TV is gone, etc.

I've seen this type of thing a lot. Even one case of a homeless guy that broke in and lived in a stored camper for weeks before the owner came back.

I feel your pain of having to find storage, but make sure it's a good place.

I don't live anywhere near you, so can't comment on price. But I would float the idea of finding a friend who might be willing to let you store it at his place. Then your $55 might be a better deal for both of you.

I agree, I would move if I couldn't park my camper on my property.

I would move in a heart beat if I had the resources to buy a new one while trying to sell the old one.

but alas, We all have our crosses to bare....

I was trying to convince my wife to move for that very reason! But, it just was not practical for us at this time. We will be picking up our new TT on June 15th. I found a secured storage lot 1 mile from my house and they guy is a decent guy. He is charging me $35/month. I will only keep it there for the camping season. From October-April 30th I will take it to an underground storage facility (used to be an old Salt mine). Year round Temp is 52, so I shouldn't even have to winterize it!!!! (I'm in Pittsburgh, PA). It is $275 for the season to store it underground. As much as I hate NOT being able to keep it on my property, this looks like the next best option for me.

Wow, I would jump at that price.

my next thought is to get a seasonal site for about 3500 including elect. it costs about 1000 more a year to do seasonal but I dont have to move it and can camp there any time I want.

We store our trailer in a secure 24/7 guarded lot. It costs us $90 a month uncovered. We are looking at moving it to a covered spot for $120 or so a month. This is in Washington state. For some reason it is kind of expensive here.

One benefit to keeping a trailer/motorhome off-site is that burglars don't know when you have left for a vacation. We have 1 acre lots, I could keep it on my property but it would be obvious when I'm gone for an extended period because the trailer would be gone.
