Boat and RV Storage

There are different kinds of RV storage. Some Self storage facilities offer enclosed garage unit types, this enclosure may have amenities such as heat and electricity and can only be accessed the RV owner. The second type is a covered self storage unit with three walls, no amenities are provided but it will protect your RV or other kind of Vehicle from the elements.When vehicles will be stored indoors over long periods of time, check fuel lines and gaskets, and lay down cardboard or mats to prevent damage to the unit’s floor. Vehicles or trailers must have properly inflated tires at all times. Keep an eye on tires that can dry rot or deflate. Restrictions vary by facility, so check with your facility manager about your role in maintaining stored vehicles.

RV Storage

When it comes to RV storage, there are some things to take in consideration. Extra Space suggests us the following;

  • Be sure to check the dimensions of a potential storage unit. Most RVs require 30-40 feet.
  • To make sure getting in and out is easy, consider the available room for a large turning radius.
  • When considering the amount of space you’ll need to store your large vehicle, be sure to include extra room for all the equipment that comes with it.
  • Some facilities offer electrical plug-ins and sanitary stations.
  • Most facilities expect that repairing or extensive maintenance of large vehicles will be done elsewhere.
  • RVs and boats must have current license plates. If your tags expire while in storage, your storage facility may ask you to renew them.
  • Storage facilities typically require proof of vehicle registration. They may also require proof of insurance, since individual property is not covered by the facility’s insurance.
  • When vehicles will be stored indoors over long periods of time, check fuel lines and gaskets, and lay down cardboard or mats to prevent damage to the unit’s floor.
  • Vehicles or trailers must have properly inflated tires at all times. Keep an eye on tires that can dry rot or deflate. Restrictions vary by facility, so check with your facility manager about your role in maintaining stored vehicles.
