RV Storage Location

Where does everyone keep their RVs? Do you keep them at home on a special pad or in a garage? Do you rent a place in a local rental facility?

Thanks

We keep our RV in a covered storage facility.
If we had the space we would keep it at home and in a garage.

Home in the driveway. Have RV 30amp service and water, no Sewer hook up. Thinking I might use a macerator, but my experience with them over the last 40 years is that they fail, and it's a crappy job to rebuild them. So far I have been able to dump leaving a site, bringing only the days travel home with me.

We rent at a RV storage facility during the winter. We use it to often in the summer to store away from home.

Local Storage Lot. I wish I had room to keep it with the house, but our lot is tiny and our city frowns on RV's in the driveway. At least the storage lot is paved and we have 24hr access.

We live in a gated, over 55 community. There is an RV storage lot within the property. We rent a space there for $35 a month. Although just gravel, it is enclosed, well kept, and only about 100 yards from our home. Very handy to keep an eye on it, start the refrigerator the day before a trip, etc. Many snowbirds live in our community, so it provides them an inexpensive place to store their rig while they are here in their house for the winter, etc. The management here is flexible enough that they allow us to park in front of our house to load/unload, etc. So we feel pretty lucky.

Rented indoor storage that washes, charges batteries, checks tire pressure fills and dumps tanks all included in the price. 24 hour accessible.

Used to rent a covered storage spot. Now have an insulated garage at home which makes it real convenient for loading/unloading, maintenance, etc. And don't have to winterize either!

We are fortunate to have the ability to keep our MH on the rear of our property, and with gated security. Have RV power connection there. Planned is a RV port cover.

Wow! That's a great rate. We live in the same kind of community with a gated storage lot in the community, but we pay $140.00 a month for covered storage. We have 50 amp electric, which is extra, but no dump. We also have a 24-hr. window to park in front of our house for load/unload. For storage rental, you really can't beat that rate.

At home with 50 amp and water. We can dump in the septic with Sanicon if needed. We are working on the Coach Mahal. Currently widening our quarter mile long driveway. Getting our 43 footer down our 9 foot wide driveway is always fun. Lol.

During the nice weather, my RV sits at the side of my house with a 50 amp connection. As winter approaches, it moves to Florida and sits down there at a FHU site so I can visit it often
