We bought a motorhome last September and the owner of the lot where we bought it, said we could store our RV there until the lease on our apartment was up and we could move into it (November). We just went to 'visit' our MH and found that the owner is no longer there and we have to get our MH out of there. But where can we park? We live in an apartment and have no place. The owner of the MH lot talked us into buying because he said we could store our vehicle there for free until we could use it. Now what do we do? We have no children, parents, or close relatives to fall back on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Most indoor storage facilities have an area off to the side that can accomodate RV's. It might cost around 30-45 per month or so depending on facility and length of rig. Try them

Bummer!!!

ISLAPP is right, find a dealer that will rent you a storage spot. City by-laws prohibit us keeping our fiver at home so we went to the nearest dealer and pay him $50.00 per month to store in a fenced and locked yard. Good Luck.

We store our rig inside a storage unit, completely inclosed with electric. Unit is 3' wider and 3 foot longer than the rig. Can be tight, but no weather problems nor exposeure to same. ($90.00 a month)

Best,

I'd love to be able to store our rig indoors but I live in Washington DC and the prices here are probably close to what they are in Toronto.

What I meant by indoor storage facilities are the U-store type where you rent a small garage type area for your personaly belongings, etc. Most of those places also have a parking lot area fenced in for larger things like cars, RV's, boats. There everywhere and should not be that expensive.

Our apartment complex has allowed us to park our motorhome there for up to 30 days. Our goal now is to find someplace to put it that will be more permanent. We live in one of the most inexpensive apartments in this area and there are a lot of young men here who have either just graduated high school and can't afford college or have just plain quit. They have nothing but time on their hands and seem to get a "kick" out of ruining things (like signs) or stealing things (Christmas decorations, bikes) and last year they went around and picked all the flowers in some people's yards. We now have police living next to us and patrolling constantly. But I digress.

If storage rates in the Washington DC metro area are too high, the only thing I could suggest is to find a storage facility out of the Metro area if you are looking at medium-to-long term storage before you're going to be using the RV.

For example, when we lived in Ohio, we rented a full-hookup site in a private campground 28 miles from our home and paid $900/year.

We now live just northwest of Houston and pay $80/month for covered storage with 30 amp service. The owners live on premises and provide us with a dump station, wash rack, compressed air, etc.

Dear ISLAPP,
I called about 100 storage places yesterday and only found one franchise (Storage USA) that stores RVs and they are 'way too expensive for us. We only need to store it for 6 months so we'll keep looking and I'm sure we'll find something....
