I'm in St. Paul, MN. Winters can be very harsh for outside storage. Summers too I guess. There's a guy that had "the million dollar idea" and developed several sites around the area for this: www.parkplacestorage.net . I bought one from him. It's storage units you own instead of renting. Each unit is fully finished, lights, heat, electric panel, outlets. The property has a common bathroom, a hose down area for rig washing, a dump station. Electric gate access. My first one was 18'x45', 16' high, with a full size insulated overhead door on one end. I grew out of that one and bought a 18'x90' with full size overhead doors at both ends. It's also got two 60 amp electric panels in it, one at each end. We can pretty much do whatever we want in our units. Some guys have wood shops set up, some guys work on cars, some guys keep their Harleys in there and work on them, campers, boats, etc.... It sure is nice having my shop to work on my rig whenever I want. It's not cheap to buy something like this but I'm not expecting the value of the units to go down with time. Much more likely to increase in value. Several units have been re-sold by their owners over the past few years and they've always sold for more than the original purchase price. So, the only cost would be loan interest, association dues, and taxes. And if you use it only for personal storage (not for any business or commerce) you should be taxed at a residential rate.

So, maybe you could find a parcel of land and develope something like this and sell the units? The guy that built ours runs a management company too so they take care of the association management for us for a small fee. You're obviously going to need some huge principal to get it going but you might be able to make it work. Key is to be able to find the right land close enough to the population center likely to buy these units. 30 minutes drive seems to be kind of key to most people.

MN is home for now.

That is a interesting place he has there.

I do not think that would work in New Jersey. Building anything in northern New Jersey would be next to impossible, especially with the Highlands around here. Heck a acre residential building lot can cost you over $200,000

I will keep the day job. With pension, 401k, medical, vacation, paid sick it's worth a ton of money.

Thanks for the posts..

As long as you have the money honey, they have the time.
That's pretty steep...must be big city prices...I pay $150/month including power.

Wow, I'm sure appreciating my 20.00 a month I realize it doesn't give those perks, but I couldn't justify that kind of money to store something personally

We have stored a 28 foot motor home in a location in Kettle Falls, Wa for $52.00 per month or $312 for six months. Access during the storage time varies from year to year. Early removal by appointment only. No provision for fire. The coaches are not checked for LP leakage or for any other source of fire. No fire extinguishers. No fire insurance. Provide your own fire insurance. No problems with theft. Cement floor. Some day a coach is going to catch fire and a lot of coaches are going to burn. Facility has repair, dump, and outside storage plus full hook ups.
Have fun!
