I'm just jealous of all you guys that store at home.....My HOA only allows RV's to enter the community for loading and unloading. Meanwhile, I dream about how to get on the road between scheduled trips.

I keep my 5ther at home parked on gravel. The last 4 yrs I paid someone to store it for me, now it sits in my yard for free.

My last 3 motorhomes have been in my back yard for the last 18 years. They sit in the hot sun, rain and dirt but that has been okay since it is in my yard. I am now moving and have an enclosed 40 foot garage with power in a secured country club environment. It is a couple miles from my new home and my HOA permits me to park in my yard for up to 14 days at a time so I can bring it home and play around with it or do what ever. I am happy it will be indoors for the times it is not on the road.

We have room to keep ours at home but there is a secure self storage lot less than a mile from the house. Twenty four hour access gravel lot costs us twenty dollars a month.

indoor storage facility = ZERO sun damage + MUCH cleaner

We've kept our 2011 Winnebago View in an indoor storage facility which has resulted in ZERO sun damage + MUCH cleaner when we do take it out of storage = no rodent issues. Yes it costs more but its a $100,000 investment... and repairing sun damaged fiberglass, seals, and repainting costs MUCH more than the incremental cost of indoor storage.

Our storage facility also includes "valet" service which enables us to have them put our RV outside and turn on our solar system once a month which recharges our $280 pair of Sam's Club Energizer GC2 Premium "golf cart" coach batteries.

I agree BrokerDon. Indoor storage with valet is nice. I'm glad I'm paying a comparable to you as I don't know anyone else that pays for indoor storage. They keep my rig looking brand new. Here in Northern California I pay by the foot. In my case its 34 feet for 235.00 per month. The owner and manager have a real love for RV's. They've forgotten more than I know.

Next to the house in a enclosed building with a 20 amp service to keep batteries charged and keep the residential fridge on 24-7

$250 a month is what I am paying and that includes electricity so I can keep it plugged in.

HOA does not allow storage at the house. Not a bad thing. We pay for covered storage. As much as I may enjoy the convenience of having it home all the time, I am not a fan of seeing RV's/ Boats / etc stored in people's driveways in the city.

I used to live in a neighborhood with no HOA. Not saying all non-HOA neighborhoods are bad, but in my case, there were several cars, boats and RV's stored on people's property which reflected poorly on the area.

I know it is not a popular stance, especially on an RV forum, but I am not a fan of seeing RV's, boats, etc stored in a city neighborhood. Too many people just let them rot. Now if it is a rural area then that is different. But in a city, no thanks.

I'm fortunate and have access to indoor storage during the summer months right down the street from me for free but this past summer it has been sitting on the vacant lot right next door where I can run a power cord from my yard. I've been doing some work on it in my spare time and we've been trying to go some where every chance we get.

I've been maintaining the lot for years because the owner is never around. I keep trying to buy the lot but the owner is very wishy washy, wants to sell but won't come up with a price.

During the winter I have outside secure storage with a security gate. No power and it costs 240 bucks for 6 months. It's only a couple minutes away.

We keep ours in a covered, locked storage facility with power...it's a boat dealer with RV storage.

Our MH is parked in a carport on our property plugged into a 20 amp service. During the winter the propane and fuel tanks are full and there is winter cloths and dried food in there. It is our back up emergency shelter if the need arises. Would like to have indoor/heated storage, but what we have will do just fine!
