I'm curious about how many Northerners store their rigs someplace south (one to a few days drive), for snowbirding to one extent or the other over the winter.
Our local storage plows road/lane access over the winter, but I have to shovel out the rig, and worry about removing snow and ice on the roof. Which strongly limits the thoughts of going anywhere warmer over the winter...

I like to hate the cover, I suppose.

Its true the ADCO cover breathes. That is a good thing, no moisture build up means no mold & mildew. By letting air in, any moisture does dry quickly.

And, when the snowblower guy gets a little carried away, the cover adds a tiny amount of protection from flying debris and pebbles.

My ADCO cover when fully cinched down was fairly neat, but like I said, the wind did buffet it enough to keep air moving.

I want to sell my cover only because I want to be able to open my slides to use the trailer as a guest bedroom, and get some value out of my winter payments.

Ours gets parked in the driveway, and plugged in, April to end of October. It goes into covered secure storage all winter at the county fairgrounds.

Up till the beginning of June 2015 I had the luxury of storing my RV at my sons house. Then he sold it! Had to relocate it to where I live and like most I have a damn HOA (even though I have the space) that does not allow us to park in the driveway.

That being said I searched both indoor and outside storage areas. Indoor was very expensive (over $400 month).

Was about ready to rent a space just down the street from my home, only to find out as the DW and I were discussing it, the owner of a 5th wheel next to the spot I was going to rent pops his head out and tells me he just got broken into by someone jumping the wall unto the top of his rig and broke the bathroom ceiling fan gaining entrance.

They stole all valuables and TV's, microwave, radio etc. Over $2K of value. why his ??? (cuse it looked pretty?)

Well, I ended up finding a covered storage area further down the road for a good price and it is fairly clean and pretty new and secure. Nice size space. High enough fence with condo's on the other side. On my first trip, parked my truck and picked up the RV and went on my way.

On my return, I find out that someone stole my license plates on my truck. My plates are out of state and making a special trip to get new ones was a must as I reported them stolen.

Was it someone jumping the fence ? Or was it someone who rents within the storage facility ? That's the question.

Bottom line, you have to be extra vigilant in securing your rig and check and recheck that everything is secure and not easily accessible for the taking!

I'm lucky I keep mine in my side yard on a nice landing pad I just put in. The pad is 14'x40'. I have a 2015 325bhqs

We store our RV at a gated storage facility about 2 miles from the house. Our town restricts storage of RV's & boats to the side or back yards and I can only fit the boat, or the RV, not both.
When we had a small class C, I used to swap it between storage and home, but with the TT and needing a WD hitch for it, its just too much hassle to juggle the two around.
The TT has never been broken into, but the front jack was knocked off it's extension block once. Whoever did it, didn't own up and the camera angles are such that the front of out trailer was not covered. Fortunately there was no damage.
The storage yard has a dump station, but we also have a 4" clean out above ground for the pipe to the septic tank. So we can dump the TT or the boat's tank easily at home.

We are lucky, no HOA and we had just enough space on the side of our home to build an RV port. 38' X 20'. We are coverd on 3 sides. Our sun is brutal so what ever we can to to protect our TT, we will.

TT is currently stored at a relatives house, but seriously looking at moving to a storage lot due to various reasons. This would be during the summer months, then move the tt to a local fairgrounds for indoor winter storage.

Not knowing what the storage will be in the near future I didn't vote.
