What are your options for indoor RV storage?
Truthfully, your options are limited if you are looking for indoor RV storage. Here is what you are looking at for options for indoor RV storage:
- An attached two-vehicle garage at your home
- A covered RV structure at your home
- A storage unit
Those are your options. Let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Two vehicle garage
A two-vehicle attached garage at your home is fine for a small RV. Few attached garages are big enough for large RVs, so the size of your RV will dictate whether this option is right for you. The advantage is obvious; this saves you money and really doesn’t cost you anything. The one disadvantage to this option is the fact that it will not be climate controlled storage, meaning you will not be protected against extreme temperatures and the damage oxidation can do to your RV.
A covered RV structure on your property
Again, cost is a factor here. It does not cost you to store your RV at home. It will cost you to build an RV structure, however, so that cost must be factored in when deciding if this is right for you. You also have to be aware that a covered “awning” for your RV is not secure at all. You are susceptible to vandalism and/or theft with this option, as well as oxidation damage.
An RV storage unit
Most self storage facilities have indoor storage units large enough to handle indoor RV storage. The advantages are obvious. These storage facilities are secure storage units. Meaning you do not have to worry about vandalism or theft. Many are also available with climate control, so that concern is taken care of as well. The disadvantage is cost. A 12’x30’ storage unit will cost you over $100 per month. Is it worth it to you to pay for that type of security? To answer that question, consider this: the cost of repairing a side panel on your RV is how much? A thousand dollars? More? What is the cost of replacing computer components in your RV which are damaged by oxidation? Two thousand dollars? More?

All we can do is point out your options and answer any questions you might have.
