I think it depends on where you are. We will pay $100 for winter storage and a small fee if we want to work on it inside in a heated space

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Lots of talk about what others are paying.

Without seeing them, I would consider the lot between home and work for convenience. You can stop be periodically to check on it. Easy to grab it after work.

Yes, that's a good point. Even though our storage is 30 min away it is near my husband's work so he checks on it regularly. Only a pain when it's time to pick it up for a campout or drop it off afterwards because it is a 2 person job and we like to have it home at least the day before we go. He is getting much better maneuvering it so hopefully I will not have to keep going with to pick it up or return it.

So last post was mine, haha. Just had to share that I'm super excited that our name came up on a waiting list after almost a year. New spot 15 min away instead of 30, has a dump which other one didn't, and price increase was only $14/month. 🎉

So my question is: if you have to pay that much each month for storage couldn't you build a covered storage at home and save? Plus increase resale for the house?

Not with a home owner's association. When we move out of state it will be a requirement to have a big piece of property and be able to store at home.

In our County you can't park an RV (or truck or any large vehicle) in front of or beside the house. So you have to have room to have a driveway and parking space behind the house. In most urban, suburb type lots that's just not gonna happen.

But at the end of the summer I'm starting construction on my retirement home, on lake lots I own. Plenty of room and I've already talked to the builder about a 16 X 35 X 12 ft High detached RV garage. I can recoup the cost of construction in just over 2 years of storage fees. And I'll have full hookups and can use the RV as a second guest bedroom. Well worth it.

Convenience should be a consideration in my book. I keep my camper in an indoor storage about five miles from two lakes where we like to camp. Makes it real simple to pick it up and drop it off.

The downside is that it's about 65 miles from the house. It's not normally a problem, but over Memorial Day we went camping about 130 miles the other direction. The weekend before, we grabbed a three of the grandkids and took a ride to get it and bring it home.

Coming home after the weekend was another story. Two-hour trip turned in to about five hours.

We pay $50, it's at the dealer. Call the day before and they bring the camper up front for easy hookup, done with the camper drop it out front and they park it, still 24hr access to the camper. Need service work done or the roof sealant checked, give them a call. Works out well. Only thing I would like even better is if it was covered storage.
