RVs are Made for Adventure
Owning a recreational vehicle is a great way to have an adventure. Imagine, the freedom to travel almost anywhere, with all the comforts of home—or at least a comfy bed and a roof—waiting for you every night.
Your base camp for adventure does have a drawback, though. Even the smallest pull-behind trailers take up lots of valuable space, and local HOAs and city ordinances often prohibit keeping your RV parked on the street.
What’s an Explorer to do?
That’s where Store Space comes in. Many of our locations have storage options designed to accommodate everything from a small teardrop trailer to an oversized fifth wheel, and lots of different types of RVs in between.
Who Needs RV Parking?
There are many different reasons people need storage options for their recreational vehicles. Store Space offers storage for your recreational vehicles, fifth wheels, motor homes, travel trailers, toy haulers, campers and pop-ups.
Types of RV Storage:
There are typically three different types of storage available at storage facilities, and most Store Space locations have one or more of these options.
1) Outdoor RV Storage
Outdoor RV storage is the most common option available. Storage facilities often have longer parking spaces located behind the main gate. These can range anywhere from 20 ft. (suitable for most Class B motorhomes, pop-ups, smaller camper vans), to 30 ft. (most Class C motorhomes, camper vans and the smallest fifth-wheels) to larger 35 ft. spaces (suitable for most Class A motorhomes and medium-sized fifth-wheels). Outdoor RV storage is typically the most economical storage solution.
2) Indoor RV Storage
Indoor RV storage is often available at facilities offering drive-up storage. Large storage units (10x15 or larger) can often be used to store pop-up trailers. Although not as common, some facilities also offer oversized units or indoor warehouse storage, specifically for RV storage. There may be restrictions at some facilities, so make sure to check with your store manager, and always read your Rental Agreement for additional details.
3) Covered RV Storage
Covered parking facilities (sometimes called a “ramada” in the southwest U.S.) can be found at some storage facilities. These locations offer covered RV parking for Class A, B, and C recreational vehicles, most frequently behind an access-controlled gate.
Availability varies by location, so make sure you check our facility near you or with your local store manager to see the options available nearby.

How to Prepare Your RV for Storage
Before storing your RV, it’s important to keep a few things in mind:
- As with any vehicle, you need to make sure that your insurance and title/registration are up to date.
- Make sure the wheels are inflated and in good shape, so they don’t go flat while the RV is stored.
- You need to remove as much fuel from your tanks as possible.
When you’re storing your RV for any length of time, it’s a good idea to prepare it as if you were winterizing it. One of the most important things you can do is to winterize your RV’s plumbing system. Your owner’s manual should have the steps outlined, which you can probably find online.
How do you store an RV long-term?
Check your owner’s manual for winterization tips specific to your model. Then, follow these steps:
- Clean the interior
- Remove all food
- Ensure everything is dry before closing up
- Empty and defrost the fridge
- Check for open doors, windows, cracks or holes, and close/seal
- Wash the exterior – dry before covering
- Remove any propane tanks
- Add RV antifreeze
- Consider purchasing an RV cover and tire covers
- Disconnect the battery
- Lock your RV
How Much Does RV Storage Cost?
There are a number of factors that will determine how much it costs to store your recreational vehicle. The type of storage unit you select will have the greatest impact, while the market will dictate the average costs.
At Store Space, we always publish our rates and new customer promotions on our store pages, plus the types of storage units and vehicle parking options we offer. If you don’t see a particular type of unit/parking listed, check with your local store manager!
