Okay, let’s talk about the need for RV storage.

RV storage means protection from vandals for your investment.

A small, used RV, or travel trailer, will run you around $5000.  A new RV, or travel trailer, or 5th wheel, can run you upwards of $100,000.  Anyway you cut those cards, an RV is a major investment, and that investment is prone to the insidious nature of vandals and thieves.  We know of many cases where RVs have been vandalized, and stolen, from campgrounds while the owners were away having a meal in town.  If something so brazen can happen in a populated and crowded RV park, can you imagine what can happen if your RV is parked in your driveway or on the street in front of your home?

And yet every winter we drive through residential neighborhoods, and we see RVs just sitting in driveways waiting to be vandalized or stolen, and we simply do not understand the logic.  If you spent $100,000 on a diamond necklace, would you leave that necklace on your porch at night, or would you lock it in your safe?

The same logic should apply to RVs.

RV storage means protection from Mother Nature.

Mother Nature is a sweet lady until she is not, and you can quote us on that. Winter storms bring trees and branches crashing on whatever is underneath them.  Torrential rains find places around windows and doors and cause major leakage. Major temperature extremes cause oxidation and ruin surfaces and cause rust.

These are not isolated incidences. We are talking about every single day in every single city, and we are talking about every single RV left outside, summer and winter, Fall and Spring.  This is not a Chicken Little scenario but rather a real scenario which plays out daily across this country. Ma Nature will do some serious damage to your RV, and it will happen sooner rather than later.

Yes, it costs money, but . . .

Which brings us to RV storage. Yes, it costs money.  You will most likely pay a couple hundred dollars to place that RV of yours in a secure facility, under some type of shelter, but compare that expense to the expense of a stolen RV, or a vandalized RV, or an RV crushed by a tree and, well, the course of action should be obvious.  If you had the money to purchase that RV in the first place, and that RV is the source of many days of fun for your family, then you really need to protect that RV in a storage unit.
