That is a nice place for travel trailer storage!

I guess you could say you bought the campground.

Thankfully we aren't held hostage by any restrictive HOA on our almost one acre of suburbia so I built an extension on our driveway for our 5er. It was first built for a little 19' TT, enlarged some for the 33 foot 5er then made even longer and wider for the 38 footer. I would have liked to have made it even bigger but time and horizontal real estate made it tough:

I "camp out" a few times each month, just for a change.

We bought our house specifically because we like the house, and there was space beside it to park an RV. At that time I had a 26' TT and over the years have moved up to a 45' 50,000# monster, but still park it there. I do need to add some blocks and fill in since the rear is too high now due to the slope. It was OK with a shorter rig.
The only restriction we had was that the RV had to be behind the front of the house. But that was only for the first 20 years unless renewed and it never was.

Have a concrete drive next to the house. 12' wide by 96' from gate to extra garage back there. Have a 30A and 50A outlet, water and sewer connections.

Were in the same situation as most I would guess. No room at the house to store it so store it in a secured lot about 10, 15 minutes drive from the house. $40 a month, 24/7 access with our own gate code, outdoors. Not bad but still wish we had a spot for it on our own property so we could have power and sewer for it. Being able to use it as a guest house would be cool I think. Would also like a car port thing for it. We haven't got a tarp for it yet but come fall we will and from what I have heard they can be a bit of a hassle.

AllSteel carport installed last fall on our 5 acres. New TT wouldn't fit (height or length) into adjacent pole barn. This month finally got around to installing compressed air, electrical, and front doors (not quite finished yet. . .). Working out well for us and significantly less money than a pole barn.

Thank you. Very happy with it and what it will do to protect our current and future RVs. Let me know if you have questions. I don't think AllSteel (based out of Muncie, IN) does work as far east as you are, but if they do you'd do well to check them out. Good pricing, good product, good to work with.

Love it purdue! That exactly what I was wanting to do. What size is that? Is it on concrete or gravel base?

It is 18w x 40l with 12' side walls. On packed gravel base. AllSteel does lots of installs in IL based on their maps posted in the office (I visited in person to look at their products, and also to get more steel to build my doors).
Know that fall is their busy season as everyone wants a building before winter. With that said, they got us installed in just a couple of weeks. Actual install took 2 days.

Good luck!

We have a company right up the street that does steel shelters there prices seem reasonable I can't wait to do it but just not in the budget this year after buying this new TT we are in love with it and almost every Friday I'm dragging her off to the cape. I have a nice rv cover to get me though till the day comes thanks
