Being new to this site, RVing in general and pop-ups in particular I was wondering about the benefits of inside storage. I could get it to fit in our (unheated and uninsulated) garage, but it'd be pretty tight - and the TV would have to stay outside for the winter.

Opinions?

I kept my pop up outside. It wouldn't have fit in the garage anyway. Now I have to store it at another location due to a house change. I can't make it fit up the driveway now.

Hi JD & Beastlet,

When we had our pop-up 1991 - 1994 we kept it outside all year long with no problems at all! However we did bring the TV in and I drained the water tank,and blew air thru the line it was cold water only. We had no toilet or water heater. Hope this helps some.

My garage is integral to the house and although not heated, it never goes below freezing. I tried storing my pop-up in the garage one winter... too many spiders. They made their little winter cocoons in the tire treads, underneath, inside... everywhere. Because it didn't move for about six months, there were lots of spider webs hanging from underneath the pop-up to the garage floor too.

After that experience, I simply covered the pop-up with one of those blue vinyl tarps and left it outside for the winter.

Maybe you have fewer spiders where you live.
