Has anyone stored their RV at Kentucky Underground Storage? If so, what are your impressions? Thanks!

Never heard of it. Seems kinda creepy. It appears to be mainly document storage. What would happen in a fire? Guess they have precautions.

130 feet underground and no need to winterize? Didnít see on their site what they charge, but looks interesting. Old limestone mine?

Site says that the facility has Intrusion Detection, Fire Detection, and Backup Power, but nothing regarding Fire Suppression though.

I worked in underground limestone mines.



One question would be if you'd have power to the coach. I think you'd need to run a dehumidifier.

Mines usually are damp, if you look at pictures on the website there are water puddles pretty much everywhere, and if you don't condition the inside you'll have problems with mold being the big thing. Not sure if there would be any issues on the chassis etc. Plan on changing the air filter often.

We have a few limestone mines in our area that are used for RV and car storage. The area where the cars are stored is climate controlled and uses filtered air. Limestone dust has a high alkali content which will corrode metal and affect the paint since the mines are damp. We have friends who swear by storing their RV's and trailers in the mines so they don't have to winterize.

Winterizing doesn't take long to do and cost is minimal. I store mine in an open lot and besides a good cleaning in the spring, which has to be done no matter where it is stored, I have had no problems.

It does sound like it would be interesting to at least check out, but personally, I probably wouldnít do it.

Once you put your coach into the cavern, it would have to acclimate both inside and out and the room temp would have to be monitored very close. Any dip or rise in temp could create a problem.

There is a reason why when you install a large safe in your home, you are advised to install a dehumidifier inside to remove moisture.

I have winterized mine in a parking lot on the way north in the winter. Takes just a few minutes. I never understood why people get wired up about winterizing.

When I was a teenager in Ky., back in the 70's, there was a huge mushroom farm, that people had. They had a section where they had friends storing boats, RVs, older cars, in there.

I have used underground storage located north of Pittsburgh for 7 years now. 55 degrees and 55% humidity everyday. I load up the motor home with moisture absorption products and have not had any issues. The rv looks the same the day I pick it up as the day I dropped it off 5 months earlier. The place is huge, hundreds maybe even a few thousand rv’s, boats, cars and carnival food wagons. Cost 7 years ago was $70 per month, now it’s $120 per month (new ownership) for my 38 footer.

I guess my only question is "why would you store it?" I haven't winterized in 40 years.

Use the thing.

I priced it at Louisville Underground Storage, I thought it was expensive. A few things that was in the email quote. Propane tank has to be removed and only a 1/4 tank of fuel.
