Owning large recreational vehicles is fun, but finding a way to store them conveniently and safely may not be. The security and
convenience that self storage offers can be a great solution to many of the common problems that boat and RV owners face, which include:
- Limited space in a driveway or yard to park the vehicle
- Homeowner association, apartment leasing and municipal parking restrictions
- Vehicle damage, theft or vandalism
Benefits of Storing Boats, RVs, Campers & Trailers:
Convenience – Renting space close to a favorite waterway or major highway means less time and fuel spent getting to and from your destination.
Security – Our storage facilities use a combination of keypad entry systems, security cameras, fencing and on-duty management personnel to
secure the property.
Extra room – Self storage allows you to store not just your boat or RV, but all the equipment that goes along with them. Having this additional
space makes it easier to stay organized and keeps your home, garage and shed clutter-free.
Protection from the elements – Large vehicles can be stored in open air spaces, covered outdoor spaces or drive-up garages with high ceilings
(depending on what the facility has available), giving you the option of choosing how much exposure your vehicle will have to the elements.
Tips for Storing Boats, RVs, Campers & Trailers:
Be sure to check the dimensions of the storage unit BEFORE you move in - most RVs require 30-40 feet. Some equipment, such as
boat trailers, may be too wide for the door of a drive-up unit, so covered parking would be the better option.
To make sure getting in and out is easy, consider the room available for a large turning radius.
When considering the amount of space you’ll need to store your large vehicle, be sure to include extra room for all the equipment
that comes with it.
Some facilities offer electrical plug-ins and sanitary stations.
Most facilities expect that repairing or extensive maintenance of large vehicles will be done elsewhere.
RVs and boats must have current license plates. If your tags expire while in storage, the storage Property Manager may ask you to renew them.
Our storage facilities require proof of vehicle registration. They may also require proof of insurance, since individual property is
not covered by the facility’s insurance.
When vehicles will be stored indoors over long periods of time, check fuel lines and gaskets, and lay down cardboard or mats to
prevent damage to the unit’s floor.
Vehicles or trailers must have properly inflated tires at all times. Keep an eye on tires that can dry rot or deflate.
Restrictions vary by facility, so check with your facility manager about your role in maintaining stored vehicles.
Our Property Managers are very knowledgeable about getting the most out of self storage, so be sure to ask them any questions you may have
about storing your RV, boat, camper or trailer.
