We are asked weekly whether or not someone needs indoor RV storage, so perhaps we should write an article about that question.

Okay, let’s answer that question.
Why indoor RV storage?
There are two main reasons why someone would choose indoor RV storage: vandalism, and extreme temperature fluctuations. Let’s look at each of these.
It’s sad that we even have to bring this reason up, but vandalism is on the upswing regarding expensive RVs. COVID changed the playing field, with prices of RVs rising dramatically during those two years, and the demand for RVs rising dramatically as well.
Where there is high demand there will be a spike in illegal activity. Count on it, and that truism has proven true since COVID.
Indoor RV storage protects your $100,000 investment like no other security measure.
The second reason to consider indoor RV storage is the weather. Extreme temperatures cause oxidation, and oxidation can damage surfaces. Think rust when you thin oxidation. The only way to prevent this from happening is by storing your valuable in climate controlled storage.
When do you not need indoor RV storage?
When do you not need indoor storage? Short-term storage need not be indoor, in our opinion, and the other reason is a personal one which only you can decide: is your RV worth the extra protection? If you are adequately insured, perhaps you don’t believe you need to pay the extra $25-$50 per month for indoor storage. Perhaps your RV simply is not worth the added cost for protection.
When in doubt, follow this advice.
The bottom line is this: we are talking about a very personal decision based on personal and individual factors. The answer will be different depending upon who you speak to. We have seen people with RVs costing $150,000 who do not store them indoors. We have seen $25,000 RVs stored indoors. There is no one-size-fits-all regarding this decision. However, we would say this: when in doubt what to do, we believe it is good policy to pay a little extra monthly and avoid the possibility of a major heartache down the line.
However, we can’t speak for anyone. We can only give our professional opinion, based upon many years in the storage industry.
