Storage cast vs distance

Inside storage is very worth while. I like it not only for the protection but it is easier to work on when I am replacing the worn parts. I get my storage real cheap, in a farm machine shed. The drawback is it is 50 miles away. I just make sure I have everything I need when I go to work on it. When you get away and into rural areas you can sometimes find storage for a couple of hundred a year.

Out here they have prefab metal car ports for under $1000 installed. I know they make bigger.

How bought a fabric RV cover? Anybody tried them.

My 2 Airstreams are early 70's and I have not yet refinished the exterior. Right now I figure 35+ outside, I can wait a little more. When (if) I get around to refinishing the skin I will probably think different.

As mentioned above hail is my big fear. There can be some doozies in these parts.

I pay about $125 a month for a 30 x 10 x 10 private garage at a storage facility about 5 miles away. Other owners can't ding my Airstream and mice are a minimal issue (or readily controlled). Resale isn't my principal concern -- the appearance will please me in 10 years because it will not have had all the sun and weather exposure. Clearcoat can only be aided in this setting.

BTW -- Covenants prevent me from considering the easy option of storing it alongside my house. I have been able to park it in my driveway before and after without complaints. Our owner association is weak -- only 4 members. I'd still spring for a shed if my situation were different.
