Not sure what he is paying, but storage fees can be ridiculous.
I pay $180 a month and was lucky to get that spot. Its less than a mile from my house, asphalt and covered parking.
When I purchased my 5th wheel, I didn't think that finding a place to park it would be that big of a deal. I ended up calling every single RV storage facility in Las Vegas, and the only spot that was available was a 60' spot for $300 a month. I happened to swing by the one by my house and the manager told me that they had a spot reserved for a person who was supposed to move their rig in, but they hadn't contacted the storage place since they reserved it. He said they had until the next day to move in or they'd release the spot to me.
Just one of those things that worked out perfectly in my favor, that time. I'm thinking about moving to a different house, and #1 on my list is a non-HOA area with enough lot space to put in a RV parking slip. That'll free up enough money per month to buy me a bit more house.
