Looking for Storage in the SF Bay Area

Hello Team,

I am currently looking to buy a trailer and I will need to store it. I thought I would ask if anyone knows of any good storage options in the Bay Area. Ideally it would be indoor but I am also interested in hearing about outdoor options. I have heard that it isn't a good idea to put a cover on an airstream but I would be tempted to do it if outdoor storage was my only option.

There's a place on Treasure Island, outdoor storage for about $300 a month. Given its location it should come with a healthy daily dose of salty fog.

Bay indoor boat and RV storage out in Antioch is best we have found.

There is a place in San Jose/Milpitas, but the last time I checked, you will have to store outside until the indoor space opens up.

There is a place out in Livermore too. Believe they have a solar panel roof storage area as well as individual enclosed storage units. One of the new AS owners that posts here was planning to store the new AS here.

There is one of those solar panel roof storage areas over by the Antioch bridge. Was going to store here until we got word that the Bay indoor was opening up a new storage section.

There is also a possibility that you can store at BAASA in Fairfield. Their indoor storage is full, but they may have out door storage if you are willing to commit to a lease/long term rental.

Lots of options, but some do fill up. Seems like folks spend more time with the coach in storage than on the road. Not good, but real life and not surprising since a lot of folks have to work to pay for their stuff.

Be aware that it costs $20 to tow a dual axle trailer over the Bay area bridges. Not significant for some and a bundle for others. We have tried driving around, but the fuel cost outweighs the bridge toll.

Travel Safe. Pat

Hi bordbisket,

We store our AS at Ideal RV/Boat storage in Livermore. There are security cameras and personal on site 24/7 and offer individual enclosed storage units and exposed storage. It's a very clean and well run facility with crushed granite on the ground, which unlike dirt, doesn't splash up when it rains. I am one of the rare persons who covers their AS. I bought a customized and expensive soft fabric cover through sunbrella. The cover fits like a glove and over the last six years there are a few small rubbing marks which are barely visible. The main reason I bought the cover is to protect all the seals and not the aluminium. I hope that helps.

When I lived in San Jose I stored my trailer indoors at Leales RV Storage. They would move it in or out of storage for you. Down side was that you had to call during business hours, but you could pick up/ drop off from their yard in front at any time. Just had to plan ahead.

We use Leales also. They are in the Southbay near the Santa Clara Fairgrounds. We pay $240/mo for indoor storage of our 24' Interstate. I think it is a bit on the high side, however the service is always good.

As mentioned above, they are closed on weekends (and holidays). You can always drop off and pickup, however for pickups you need to let them know prior to closing on Fridays if you want to grab it on the weekend (they will park it outside for you).

A nice 'extra' is that they do a variety of service and repair there.

Bay Area Airstream adventures. If you buy you trailer there they will store it for $50 per month. Hard to beat that deal. Don't know what the rate is if you don't, but it looked like to me they had lots of space.

Interstate Storage in Point Richmond, just off 580 at the East end of the bridge. Individual indoor units and a large covered area outside. The operators live there and security appears to be good. It is a clean well maintained facility with trailer wash area, dump station, potable water and air for tires. Have fun with your new Airstream.

I second BayArea Airstream, Vacaville, CA. Excellent sales and service people. They have indoor and outdoor storage. In door storage probably booked up but you might get lucky.

I park at Ideal RV Storage in Livermore. We have a fully-enclosed tent for about $170 / month. Very clean and secure. The tent lets in enough light to keep the batteries charged too. They have a dump station as well.
