You want to get a new fifth RV to make great memories with your family. Maybe you want an RV to go on the road on the weekends.
Or maybe you just retired and your dream of owning a Class A motorhome is finally coming true. Whatever the reason for owning a motorhome, you’ll need a covered RV park to store it when it’s not in use.
Let’s take a look at why an RV shed is the best option if you can afford it and have a location near you.
Do RVs need to be stored indoors?
When not in use, RVs are usually stored in someone’s home or in a storage facility. Some people have a large driveway to park their RV for a few months. Others have a side yard with a covered garage. However, many people do not have the space to store their RV at their home.
They turn to storage facilities in the community. Sometimes campgrounds offer sites. Other places like self-storage facilities have space for a few RVs. However, most of these facilities only offer outdoor storage. Indoor storage facilities are much harder to find.
So do RVs have to be stored indoors? No, they don’t have to. There may not be indoor storage available near your residence.
But if you can find a location and have the money to pay the high monthly rent, covered RV storage is certainly better than outdoor storage. Let’s take a look at why.
What is indoor RV storage?
With outdoor RV storage, you simply park your vehicle outside. This can be your driveway or yard, a field at a campground, or a covered carport at a storage facility. Your RV will be parked here for the months it is not in use.
In contrast, housing your RV in a shed is similar to a garage. These storage units vary from 10 feet by 20 feet to 10 feet by 40 feet to even larger options for RVs and long trailers.
You drive your RV into the garage and close the door until you want to get it out again in the spring.
Advantages of indoor storage for motorhomes
Because of the cost and location, storing your RV indoors is not practical for some people. However, there are tremendous advantages to storing your RV in a sheltered location.
From security to weather protection to protection from pests, these units provide far better havens for your RV when it is not in use.
