Need suggestions for stashing the AS on the road..

My husband and I have been full timing in a 2012 AS International Signature 27 FB for 3 months. So far, so good (except for the exploding window the 3rd day and the Use/Store switch that failed a couple weeks ago - I'll save those for another post).

My husband does consulting and he has 4 trips coming up before December. We are traveling in the upper midwest (currently in Michigan) and plan on exploring on into New York and New England and perhaps down the eastern seaboard. I know it will depend on where we are, but we need some general ideas on how/where we could store our AS safely for about 3 days or up to perhaps a week each time while he does the consulting.

Does anyone have any ideas of what we could do?


...if we weren't all crazy, we would go insane.

You might find some members in the area who would be willing to let you park on their property.

Storage unit companies sometimes store vehicles too. Make sure they have sufficient security. How much security depends on crime in the area. We have seen storage units surrounding my high fences with razor wire and cameras in Santa Fe, for ex. Other areas just park them and you hope for the best. Campgrounds with storage have more people around and may be well lit, or not.

Get a hitch lock, put a padlock on the coupler lever and there are locks to go between the wheels. Buy the best padlocks you can. Some buy Denver boots for a wheel. Some remove a wheel (or two on tandem trailers). No locks are perfect, but they slow the thief down and they may opt for someone else's trailer.

Are you members of WBCCI? Courtesy parking at some members' homes is a wonderful benefit!
