Stabalizing my new residence

I made the plunge and full timing now. I reside in one of the Hurricane states (Florida).

I want to secure it with tie downs when not traveling. What is the best way to secure/dock my investment? Should I put all four corners on blocks?

Everyone thought I wouldn't be able to make this move, but I did and I am truly loving it.

Recommendation, if you are set on doing this to check with a local company that specializes in storm tie downs. This is a travel trailer not a park model. Speaking as someone that also lives in a high storm prone area - I say don't. In stead be ready and able to hook up and pullout of the area if a storm is approaching. The damage they can do to a trailer tied down or not is devastating.


Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

Michael has it right. We buy recreational vehicles because they have wheels. When a hurricane threatens you need to pack up the coach and head elsewhere.
