Can't find covered storage in Denver ~ Starting to panic

Hi all,

I appreciate any advise you might have for this newbie. I have tried Adam's County Storage and Freedom RV and they are sold out and have a lengthy waiting list. Ugggg. We are about to put a deposit on our new AS and I'm starting to panic. Does anyone know of a storage spot in or around the Denver metro area? We are in Arvada. Or know someone who might want to make a buck each month who might have storage on their property? Our HOA only allows an RV in front of our home for 48 hrs. No help there

Aside from moving, I don't know of a place to go. With the frequent hailstorms along the Front Range, a covered place to park it is important. Can you put up a pole barn on your property to protect it?

Hi Gene, nope~we can't have anything in this neighborhood. At least the neighborhood is neat and tidy but, when it comes to this, that is when it becomes a pain. I just spoke to a guy all the way in Centennial and he said just make it through the winter and snag a spot in the summer when the hail is the problem. His spaces are for the big boys and start at $550 per month, can you imagine??

Honestly, I am kind of freaking out. I have been looking all this year and now finally we found our unit and I'm ready to buy and don't want to put the deposit down until I'm sure to find a place to store it. UGGGGG. Not happy right now

Have you looked in Boulder, Longmont, Palmer and Monument, and any other places further away? How about Evergreen? The hail there isn't as severe, although you may be shoveling it out in May.

$550/month tells me there is little supply and a lot of demand. Monthly storage in Santa Fe (where nothing it cheap) runs around $100/month, though I haven't seen any covered storage there. But they don't have the hail Denver does either.

Are you buying from the local dealer?

This where we store ours. Not very convenient to Arvada, but it is a nice place owned and run by friendly helpful people.

I just noticed that I can see the very front of our trailer in one of their photos.

Yes,
Our is covered. It is a 40 foot long space because our trailer would stick out a bit in a 30 foot space. We are between a giant Motor home and monster 5th wheel so we have a lot of protection. If if the roof fell in, it would never reach the airstream.

If you look at the bottom picture in the facility photo section of their web site, you can see the front of our trailer second from the right. You would not have been able to see it all if the motor home next to us had been there that day.
Ken

Hi Ken, I called and they are sold out of the covered spaces and put me on a waiting list. So, there are several before me and she said she doesn't think anyone is leaving anytime soon. This is what I am hearing all over town. But, I may just have to take the outside space in hopes that if I'm already a client, I could sneak into a covered spot. They are WAY cheaper than the other locations I am looking at closer to home. Will have to figure out if the gas/time being quite a bit aways is a better savings than paying higher but, being close to home. I am really getting desperate. uggggg.

Do you have a small municipal airport nearby? One that handles private planes only? Many of those have hangars for rent, and I've never seen any regulations that say you have to own a plane to rent a hangar.

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?

I was afraid that might be the case. I guess the commuting costs are all dependent on how often you will go back and forth. It is about a 2-3 mile drive for us. We have covenants here but they have been ignored for so long that they are no longer enforceable, and thank goodness, there is no HOA. I would move to a shack in the woods before I would subject myself to that. I can and do keep the trailer here at times. However it is a nuisance jockeying the cars around, because the driveway is only wide enough for the Airstream and one car. It is long enough for 2 cars in single file and 4 in the garage and carport. We don't have that many though. I am also paranoid about hail, although we have lived here for a few months short of twenty years and only had one hail storm that would have possibly caused any damage to the trailer. That was about 16 years ago. Around here, the closer to the foothills you get, the less likely it is to get damaging hail. We are probably about 5 miles from the base of the foothills and the RV storage is due south of us. The storm that had the large hail here was some freak thing that came at us from the southeast.

Ken
