If you own an RV, we have a question for you: have you considered indoor RV storage for that RV and, if your answer is no, our next question is why not?

We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, offering the most secure self storage found in the Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-439-1380 for more information about secure self storage in Fort Worth. Call us about RV storage, auto storage, trailer storage, or simply the best storage for any of your belongings.

Now, though, let’s discuss why indoor RV storage is a good idea.  We offer you two solid reasons why you should consider RV storage indoors.


If you are like most RV owners, you have your RV sitting in the driveway of your home, or sitting in the backyard.  This is normal.  Probably close to 75% of RV owners do the same thing, and the reason for doing that are quite understandable: it is inexpensive and it is convenient.

It is also extremely risky and it invites vandals and thieves.

It takes an experienced thief less than a minute to break into a vehicle. Within five minutes that same thief can remove quite a few of your belongings or engine parts from your RV.

It takes a vandal all of one minute to spray paint your RV, or do other damage.

Do you seriously believe it can’t happen to you?

Blue Mound 287 Self Storage has a fence completely around the perimeter of our storage facility. We have security cameras covering every inch of our location. We have computerized, personalized access cards. There is only one main access entry point to our self storage business. And we have on-site management.

It is, in all honesty. Practically impossible for a vandal or thief to access your RV if it is stored at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, or some storage facility in your city which has the same security protection as Blue Mound.

The question then arises: how important is security to you? Are you willing to pay for it, or do you want to take your chances with the RV in your driveway?

Protection from the elements

Most people, in an attempt to protect their RVs from damaging weather, park them under an RV awning, thus protecting them from the rain and snow and, thus, giving them peace of mind.

But an RV awning does nothing to protect against oxidation, the harmful chemical reaction of extreme temperatures and vehicle surfaces.  Oxidation can ruin leather. Oxidation can ruin wood surfaces. Oxidation can attack plastics and cloth and glass.

We know this because Blue Mound 287 Self Storage is in Fort Worth, Texas, where temperatures can soar to 110 degrees or higher.  We have seen the effects of oxidation firsthand.  And our experience tells us that to truly protect your RV from Mother Nature, you really need to consider indoor RV storage and, in particular, air conditioned storage.

Yes, it will cost extra and yes, it is worth the extra money.
