Wow!

Their office address is 5011 Argosy Ave - in Orange Co.

Do suppose they would give me a "family" discount?

It funny, on a much smaller scale I had thought about a storage unit place, and not even a condo type thing, just a pure rental. I was concerned with all the LP gas inside, with all the different units that if a leak did develop in one unit and something bad happened, you could have what I saw on the Discovery Channel where a storage yard of tanks, caught in a blaze started a chain reaction. Glad to see they have it sprinkler'd.

Cool concept though....

Smile Condo for AS.

My condo is 16W X !6H X 50 feet long. Makes great work shop and a place to polish the AS out of the sun.
Regards in sunny and warm Tucson Az.

I have noticed that Florida has small condo units with garage and RV storage also scattered all around. They seem to be very popular.

Yes, Janet -- head on in and tell them I sent you for the discount.

An RV-condo community was done in Texas firstest (like always, eh?). But at least they got it right -- exclusively for Airstreams! See the North Texas Airstream Community at Hillsboro (south of Dallas). I'd first seen them on a program on either Discovery or Travel channel about 10 years ago -- a couple veteran Airstreamers were heading out to a Wally Rally -- the show followed them right thru the rally too. They even slid their trailer into a ditch and it showed the recovery.

We had a storage condo burn down about a year ago. Called out eleven fire departments to fight it.

I think to Condo storage concept I really a great idea, especially for around here in New England. I am very interested though in the monthly common charges. In addition if I were building one, I would have water and sewer in each unit so that maintance could be done inside your unit. I would also have camping sites (not too many) for owners to have availabel to their guests when in town!

North Texas is well constructed, but they were far from the first. I think NTAC started up in about 1990. In Texas, Texas Airstream Harbor, Incorporated, in East Texas http://www.texasairstreamharbor.com/...r/welcome.html predated them by about 20 years. Yearly fees at NTAC are about $600, and $300 at TAHI.

I know that the Minnesota and Tennessee Airstream only parks are fully operational, and I suspect that many others are also.

The following is a list I have compiled from various sources, but I cannot confirm that all are now operational or are Airstream exclusive....there also may be other AS exclusive parks that I may not be aware of.

I would appreciate if anyone knows of others, or knows of some listed that may need to be deleted (or are no longer AS exclusive) to contact me.

I would suspect that Land Yacht Harbor and Land Yacht Port O' Call, both listed in Melbourne, FL are one and the same, but it (both?) may now be gone.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Even a small fire, has the potential of getting REALLY large with all the various fuels and different levels of maintenence.

I am the developer of the Storage Condos brought to everyones attention by this thread. I realize this is not for everyone. It is a specialized product designed for those who really want to keep their RV out of the elements, and realize the current shortage of RV storage facilities in So Cal will only drive the storage rental prices up and up.

Regarding the fire potential of this type of unit, yes it is there, but we have taken all the precautions possible such as -
All units have propane detectors tied into the alarm system.
All units have fire sprinklers.
All units have one hour fire walls.

With a little common sense, the fire danger hopefully will be kept to a minimum.

Many of this type of product are popping up all over the nation. In a few years, you will see this idea being more in the mainstream for storage choices.

It has been a battle trying to get this off of the gound. To date, I have spend 5 years developing the concept and trying to find a city that would allow such a product. You wouldn't think this would be all that difficult, but when you are a pioneer with a new product, it seems no one really wants to go along with your plan. Finially, the City of Beaumont was open minded enough to allow construction of this product.

Just to give you some idea on how this is being accepted, I released the first phase of 30 units out of 116 and they did sell out in two days. I had a line of people at my door with deposit checks that morning. I was totally stunned, and pleased at the same time.

The second phase is set to be released in July of this year. I am expecting similar results as my waiting list is hundreds of people long.

We will no doubt be building additional projects of this kind in the near future, since public demand is so strong. If you have any questions or are just curious, feel free to e-mail me at ted@rvstorage.biz

Thanks to all of you

Ted.

I think the concept is great. My only concern is how you all keep minumum the possibility for a bad loss due to someone simply making a mistake. You may have hundreds, if not thousands of lbs of propane and if you are also storing motorhomes and boats, diesel and/or gasoline will also be in the same area in quantity. What kind of fire suppression are you placing into these places to help stop a catastrophic loss and/or chain reaction event given the wide margin of how folks maintain, store and follow best practices?

Not that this would happen, but say a person leaves his RV fridge on (on the LP setting) and it's one of the current Dometic fridges on recall. It malfunctions (because it hasn't been fixed by the recall), starts to burn out the RV. How quickly will your fire suppression kick in before god forbid, it gets to the LP tanks, where an explosion could happen, starting a domino effect.

I realize this is a similar issue to folks that store outdoors, except it's now been moved indoors.

Thanks!

I guess if you make something idiot proof, only idiots will use it.
There is only so much you can do. I think we have done just about everything you can to avoid such an occurance. I suppose that fact that we have 9 buildings, each seperated by a 25' isle way, that would contain the fire to that building. With the fire sprinklers in each unit, if a fire were to break out, the volume of water would certainly control the situation, and hopefully limit the damage to only one unit.

There is little difference in these units as to your garage at home. Yes there are flammible liquids in either. I think with the sprinklers and other fire protection in place, these would be even safer than your garage.

Remember, with outside storage, if a unit catches fire, do you think the damage would be limited to just one unit? Nope. I am certain many other units will go up in flames, since there are no sprinklers or alarms in a storage lot. I would be willing to bet the damage would be far more extensive in an uncontrolled situation like an open storage lot.

If your worried about storage just look to boataminiums, dry stacked boat storage has been around a very long time with very few problems. Even a marina is more dangerous because you cannot control the wind and weather,(lightning). That's why a marina fire is always at least a 3 alarm event. As far as idiots out there, just go to a public boat ramp on a holiday weekend and start counting. It's free entertainment! ---Mark---
