Storage

Where do you store your trailer? I am in the process of building a new garage for mine.

I currently keep ours outside in the back yard. We have 3 acres, so we have our trailer and a relatives parked next to each other in the back yard.

Unfortunately we have to store ours at a storage lot. The good news though is it's very secure; owners live on site. Of course it's fenced with surveillance cameras around and it's close to home ( about 6 miles). Still it's not like having it in the backyard. I do visit her frequently if just to sit under the awning and enjoy a good ciagr.

Ours is in the back yard. I wish we had it covered. Hate to see it constantly in the elements.

I've been told by RV service guys on several occassions that it's better for the refer to leave it plugged in and running.

We store on the side of the house. We will be using it as a "guest house" for two weeks when Don's brother comes to visit from Alaska (he's a clean freak, so it's ok for him to be there ). I'm glad we have it, as our grandkids are spending more time overnighting with us while their mom is going through a difficult last month of pregnancy! We are definitely grateful for the extra room.

Unfortunately mine is parked outside, but I do have full hookups.
Hope to have a shop/storage for it built before long. I firmly believe that one should be out of sight. By that, I mean if it stays out all the time, unsavery people going past all of a sudden see it gone, they know that there is a good chance that you are gone on vacation. Makes your residence very vulnerable.

Very good point
