Which RV Storage Unit is Right for You?
Determining which kind of storage unit is right for you can be a bit difficult, as there are several types of storage units for RVs out there:
1. Indoor RV storage units
2. Covered RV storage
3. RV parking spaces and
4. RV land lots
Storing Your RV on Open Land Lots
This is the most commonly available RV storage option, as well as the least expensive. This kind of facility has unpaved, open lots ready to lease out to RV owners. Open land lots are cheap and secure, but this form of storage unit doesn’t offer much protection from elements.
RV Storage Parking Spaces
This form of RV storage is also very common and slightly more expensive than open land lots. Here, you rent a paved parking area in the facility where you will store your RV. Just like open land lots, your RV will be prone to elements. However, since your RV will be parked on a paved surface, it will be less susceptible to dust and dirt.
Using Covered Storage
Covered RV storage units are normally more expensive than open land lots and parking spaces, but are less expensive than indoor storage units. Rather than parking your RV out in the open, covered RV storage offers a canopy that protects the vehicle from elements. This option is best for those who are looking to keep their RV protected from elements but who cannot afford indoor storage units.
Indoor Storage Units
These are the most expensive type of storage units of them all and are usually oversized versions of a typical self-storage unit. They are accessed through a powered or manually operated roll-up door. Size is a crucial consideration in this form of storage. As RVs vary in heights and length, be sure to choose the right sized unit for your RV. Indoor RV storage units keep your RV completely protected from rain and the sun. This will, in turn, save you money you would have otherwise used for cleaning and repairs in the long run. Moreover, your RV will be in excellent condition when it’s time to take it out for another trip.
Another added advantage to indoor RV storage units is the added security. Since your RV will be locked away in its own garage, no one can access it but you!
