Question Please share about your TT storage/home setup

Hi All, first time poster with JOF. I'll be posting in the welcome area once we actually take possession of our new White Hawk. We have made a deposit and received loan approval on our first TT.

I wanted to go ahead and ask these questions ahead of bringing our new TT home: how do you folks store your TTs at your house? Do you park yours on a concrete slab, gravel pad, or on the grass? Is the spot in the open? Do you have some type of covering or shed/carport, or even enclosed storage? How about power, or even water and septic hookup for home use or guests? Some of these questions may be better suited in a poll form. I welcome your comments.

Photos of your home storage/setup site would be great!

Thanks! Lonnie

Right now, mine sits in a storage lot a few miles away, as there is no room here at the current house for it. Gravel parking lot, no cover. BUT, Beginning in May, we will be moving and it will be at the new house that already has a concrete slab for parking the camper. Still no cover, but it will be home.

Home Storage

Do you park yours on a concrete slab, gravel pad, or on the grass? Is the spot in the open? Do you have some type of covering or shed/carport, or even enclosed storage? How about power, or even water and septic hookup for home use or guests?

Ours at home is on a gravel pad just off the driveway. It is in the open. We run a heavy power cable to it. Not strong enough to run a/c. Lastly, no guests stay in it at home. If we needed it for that, just please don't use the bathroom.

We have ours in a storage facility, under a sort of carport. At least it keeps the sun, rain and snow off it.

The house we bought 14 years already had a RV slab on the side of the house. When my fence blew down 2 years ago from the crazy wind here, I purposely put in a 10' double swing gate. Wish I would have made it a 12' but it works.

So I always knew some day I would own one and finally 14 years later it is parked next to the house. It takes me 30 minutes to back it in, but I am getting better.

Just last week I had a 30 amp RV plug installed on the side of the house and now if the in-laws come to stay they can sleep in the trailer. Actually I think I would give them our bedroom and we would stay out there.

Ours is on concrete but too long to close the gate. Will have to fix that. We keep it covered in the winter and always plugged in to a 120 outlet when parked here. No water sewar hook ups though.

Ours sits on the city street in front of our house. 2 years and so far no issues. The street is paved, I have noticed the pavement under where the tire are located is settling in.

Mine is parked next to the house on the driveway ( plywood under the tires). I ran 30 Amp service on the side of the house also water and sewer. Use it as my little get-a-way during the winter and just dream about the first trip in the spring. That trip will be next week on the 17th. To Pismo Beach for 2 weeks than work my way home around June sometime.
