$67- per month for 12 X 40 covered. It is not enclosed, but is the northern half of a double. My 30' TT slides in easily and is protected by the MH parked behind, and the sun never peaks in the north side. Protected 1 side because it's the first space next to the enclosed spaces. Parked back to the back of the space, the rain and snow don't even make it to the tongue. I have power for occasional use but not all the time. I have good, potable water available. Secured by gate and fence with video. This was a God send...

Near Phoenix, I pay $150/mo for 50x15 covered but not enclosed.

Wash bay, dump station, and water are available in a central location.

We were thinking about off site storage when we buy a unit. After seeing these prices and checking local rates, I'm wondering about keeping a MH in my driveway.

My biggest concern with this is that my driveway isn't level. It's about a 14% grade. And it concrete. With chocks for all four wheels do you think this would be safe? I'm a little concerned that it advertises you are not home whenever the unit isn't present, but I live in a very safe, low crime area.

Are there other things that I should be worried about that makes driveway storage a bad idea?

Not everyone worries about it... but something to consider is how your neighbors might feel about it and whether or not it violates any CC&R.

we have 31' class c WB Access stored in gated area with some cameras,not covered, no utilities, about $45/month,within 5 miles of our house.
we have a slight grade on driveway and couldn't backup into driveway without rear scraping. We really would like to store at house but not feasible,plus our community group may say something.

If you live in a subdivision or area with deed restrictions then your homeowners assn. probably will not let you park in the driveway.Some will let you park in the back yard if it is behind a fence. Be careful parking on grass because it is hard to pull a motorhome out of the mud - I know from experience.

Rick
We went to a dealership in our area and actually stood next to and inside units that we might consider. Actually standing next to big steel - or maybe I should say big fiberglass - convinced me that these do NOT belong in my driveway. I will need to look for offsite storage and figure that into the financial calculations.

I'll post about the "shopping" experience in a new thread so I can get input from people with experience.

Thanks for all the input and advice. It was all very useful and appreciated.

I believe CC&R stands for Codes, Covenants, and Restrictions. They are legally binding "neighborhood rules" defining what one can and can't do regarding things like parking RVs on their property. They're pretty common in more densely packed areas.

Due to the damaging sun in FL, inside storage is expensive because people will pay for it. I pay $250. per month for a shared aircraft hanger on a private estate with water and electric. Double security gates and and a live onsite caretaker. Carport parking in my area is almost the same price.

Up here in the frozen tundra area (-20F this morning) inside storage is at a premium. I found a 22'x50' insulated with heat provided, 14'x14' door with opener, service door, (2) 20amp 110 circuits, and gated security for $425/month. Considering our weather here and parking restrictions for my community, this works really nicely. Great to go in and have a heated workplace over the winter to clean, polish and putsy. --Tom
