Our new TT is parked on concrete inside our Morton out building. We have covering on the rafters so no bird droppings incase a bird gets locked inside. May seem little OCD, but it keeps it clean!

We have ours in a shed in the backyard on gravel. Like a previous poster said, the only time ours sees sunlight is when we're out camping. My bride didn't want it in the backyard at first, but now she loves it because no one knows when we're packing to leave. We've got a couple sketchy neighbors. The shed has undergone several transformations as we've upgraded campers.

Our city doesn't allow parking of a boat or RV in the front driveway. Anything you want to park of that sort must be behind the frontline of the house.

I have a 185' deep lot, but unfortunately, not enough room on either sides of the house to slide one in.... (5' on one side and 7.5' on the other!)

So I have to lease a storage space in a nearby storage facility for the summer months. But my inlaws just moved into a new house on a 60acres lot, so we will store it there for winter (can't during Summer, cause they live about 80miles away, that wouldn't be an economical decision) and it will be more accessible than at the storage facility near where I live.

We store indoors and have since day one. The battery's are disconnected and we do not plug in to power when stored. Very little light enters the building but I draw the blinds anyhow. The flooring is gravel so I do park on some boards to keep off the gravel and to keep semi level. I do store slightly tongue high just in case the roof of the building ever leaked, it would keep water from pooling on the camper roof. All this might sound rather OCD, but she's 16 years old this year and still looks like brand new!

I keep our TT at a storage facility a couple of miles away, on gravel, no electric. I do keep a cover on it during the winter months, I just took it off this past week-end (YAY!!!).

I could keep it on one side of my driveway, but our neighborhood association won't allow it. Afraid it would start to look like a trailer park, I guess.......

My interpretation of 'off the pavement' is found in the Dexter Axle manual where they recommend jacking the trailer up so that the tires don't touch anything. This would let the suspension components relax and eliminate the load on the trailer sidewalls. If you think about it, when the trailer is parked for 6 months or whatever, there is a tremendous amount of strain concentrated on a small area of the sidewall. This condition would exist regardless of the surface it is parked on...concrete, asphalt, pea gravel or plywood.

If you parked on soil I could understand the plywood or plank to keep the tires from sinking into soft dirt but wood under tires on pavement doesn't make logical sense to me.

I'm not attacking your practice, I just want to find out if there is some chemical or mechanical reasoning behind the practice...for example I've heard that sitting a lead/acid battery on concrete will "damage" it. How & why?
