Got tired of storing the TT

After 7 years of owning TTs and being forced to pay to store it somewhere because the city doesn't allow parking of RVs in driveways, I decided it was enough!

Purchased a new house, in a rural suburb 5 minutes away from my current house). 1.5acre lot should be enough of land to park the 28BHBE

Can't wait for Spring when we move into the new place!

Hope to do the same someday! Storage fees here in Orange County, Ca. are insane.

That's great. We have the benefit of keeping the trailer at home and having it close and plugged in is great and makes packing a snap. Fridge stays on all summer with all the condiment and non spoiling stuff in it.

I'm assuming that you don't have to worry about ordinances prohibiting parking your rv on your property?

You are one of the fortunate ones. If my rig were not on my property when idle, I don't know what I would do.

It is my job, hobby and mancave.

Really, we don't allow it? Imagine that, I've been parking mine in the driveway for the summer for years now, and never knew; stored it at my mom's place for the winter. There are tons of driveway parkers in our east end Ottawa neighborhood year round. I have one neighbor who leaves his parked on the street most of the summer; now THAT I find a bit annoying.

Just sold my house and will be looking for property that will allow me to spread out a little. I will be staying at an RV park in the meanwhile. $450\month including electricity and 50amp service. The RV will have a new home and so will I.
