Hanger Space

Can't say for sure that you'll find a hangar for rent big enough for your trailer, but it can't hurt to look, right?
At my airport you need to have plane to get a hanger. I've seen big hangers that they share space. I pay $250 for mine. A shared hanger would be around $100 a per month. So call your airport and ask about group hanger space.

Here on the east edge of the Phoenix sprawl, a 41' under roof lighted with electrical outlet space is $155 per month. Pay in advance and price can drop to $120 per month. A more open 30' space is $115 per month before discounts. Place is about 8 miles away off a dual lane limited access highway. That translates to less than 15 minutes away. Our HOA does not allow on street parking of any kind after 10:00pm at night. That is a real pain in the anatomy.

Our new trailer is nearly as long as the lot is wide on the street edge, so I can not even think about parking diagonally on the drive.

My preferred storage friends that are even closer have a long waiting list for covered spaces. I made sure I had covered storage under contract before pulling the trigger on a trailer. The sun and heat are rough on everything here in the summer.

Here in Kansas City we have underground RV storage in the lime stone mines (AKA the "Cave") no worry about hail, uv damage, etc and no need to winterize as our Bambi is at a constant 62f in the "cave" annual cost is $625

Our HOA is the same. No RV's more than 48 hrs. and it's just killing me that I have to pay for storage. Then to boot, I can't find any place that has covered. The waiting lists are very long. I figure, I'll try to find a close spot and pay for the outdoor and maybe once I'm a client, I will go ahead of folks on the waiting list that aren't customers. That is just a "hope" of course!

I will for sure look into the airport as the Rocky Mt. Airport is so close to our home. That would be AMAZING. Thanks to all for the responses and recommendations. Greatly appreciated.

Great news!!! I received a call today from Adam's Country Storage (7 miles from home) they just had a covered spot open up yesterday. We just put a deposit down today and it's ours. There were many AS's there and this spot is well protected with a large Motorhome on one side and an AS on the other, right in the middle. So happy I can't tell you. One major item off of our checklist. Now, we just need to close on Thursday, drive across the country and pick her up. Wish us luck. Thanks to everyone who responded. I greatly appreciate your time as always!!!

Be sure to take a few photos once parked. Not saying your "neighbors" might back into your TT, but worse has happened. Time & date stamp. Check insurance coverage by facility & yours with your agent.

Saw a slick motion sensor light with built-in camera today in the Northern Tool catalog. Downloads to telephone. Something like that, perhaps, as you look around your new space.

I didn't have problems storing ours, but have heard from others about the unexpected. ("Neighbor" using your RV as a place to lean stuff as they load/unload. Etc. )

May have been on this forum that a thread on this already exists.

If the airport in question gets any federal funding, sooner or later a guy from the FAA will show up and inspect the hangers to make sure that they're being used as intended for aircraft. I tried to buy a hanger for car storage and was told in no uncertain terms, "no plane, no hanger".
