Thumbs up Winter storage

Well fall is here and its time for this Jayco owners to put our coaches up for the long winter nap. Being in central Wisconsin I started to search for reasonable priced inside storage about mid-summer. It was just a fluke that I mentioned what I was looking for to a purchasing agent at one of our accounts. She mentioned that she keeps her travel trailer at a facility that turned out to be just two miles around the corner from where we live. After leaving the agent I immediately called the owner of the storage facility to see if he had any room this coming winter. Today was my lucky day as the guy told me he just had a cancellation and could fit my unit in with no problem. I was concerned about the price and was floored when he told me he gets $10 a foot for the winter. Having a unit with a total length of 30 feet that meant it would only cost me $300 to have my unit in covered storage for the winter. I felt like I won the Lotto. So, this past weekend we pulled the trailer around the corner to his sheds, paid him the $300, and said goodbye and goodnight to our coach till next spring.
I love stories with a happy ending...

The idea is appealing but so long as the city allows me to park in my driveway that is where I will keep it. Neighbors don't complain thankfully. Your rates are attractive for sure.

I'm curious of what constitutes "winter." In other words, when do you have to take it out?
Also, does inside mean a garage with a door that can be locked, etc.?

I pay $65/mo for "covered" storage that is open on the front and I share with six or eight other campers. It's part of a self storage facility with fence and gate around the lot.

TIA

Here in the Columbia Gorge I was lucky to find a storage spot. It is covered (outdoor with a roof and 3/4 rear wall) for $125 a month. Outdoor spaces are $60. But with our lovely freezing rain in the winter I'll be thankfull.....

My storage is in a large building with garage doors that lock. There is room for another motorhome and about 10 boats. The "winter" season is from mid October to mid April, about 6 months. The owner is flexible though about in & out so if we have a mild early spring we are able to get to it. We are taking it in today

Our coach is a '02 which we purchased used last spring. Its spent its entire life out in the brutal Wisconsin winters so last winter I just parked it next to our garage on a couple long pieces of plywood to keep the tires off the ground. I covered the tires and air conditioner and front end so nothing would rust. We placed about 100 dryer sheets in the coach to hopefully stop any mice from getting and staying in. Unfortunately they didn't work. We had mouse crap everywhere but thankfully nothing seemed to have been chewed up. That's the main reason we wanted storage in a large building. The building owner places 17 of those metal one-way mouse traps all around the inside the building just in case. He told us he catches a few mice in the traps but no one has ever mentioned having mice inside their stored campers. Hopefully that trend will continue...
