New TT in Pole Barn

We're bringing home our new TT this wkd and storeage will be in our barn year round. Is there any concerns I should have about our gravel floor in the barn?

Congrats on the new camper!

I've stored mine in a pole barn with a gravel floor since it was brand new and it has been just fine. I do make sure that I park on wood blocks instead of the gravel though (I don't really have a reason why, it just makes me feel better). Storing indoors keeps it looking brand new, in fact, people often ask me if my camper is new and its 13 years old!

Should be fine...., just keep a couple loaded mouse traps inside the TT.

I store my TT on a gravel lot next to my driveway. I wish I had a Pole Barn.

I park mine in my shop building that has a concrete floor and is very tight pest wise and I throw a pack or 2 of D-con around the perimeter...no problems so far.

My hubby built onto a barn and poured a concrete floor just for me! The barn is large enough for two 32bhds side by side with room to spare! The downside? I have to go through 3 sets of cattle gates to get to it! So far so good and no mice. I'm hoping the 5 barn cats are helping with that problem.

A box of dryer sheets spread throughout the inside of TT has helped me keep the mouse out over the winter.

You can never build a barn "too big". Welcome to JOF.

I just installed a 12' gate at the end of our driveway, so now we can drive straight thru, make an easy U-turn into our barn's east end and drive straight out the west side and through the old gate and onto the driveway.

Our floor is decomposed granite that packs hard and I've got 2x12s that the tires sit on.

For some reason we have no mice in that RV barn or the hay barn or stalls. In the house, yes. But not down there.
