We have kept our Airstreams outside, three of them over the years and our 2015 is as well. All at a gated storage facility about 2 miles from our home. So far no issues, however, I do wax it twice each year right after a good wash and dry.

Enjoy

Bud

We keep ours in a nearby boat storage barn all winter. It's clean in spring and there's all season to check for leaks.

Live in Snoqualmie, just up the hill from you. This is our 2nd winter. We keep it parked outside uncovered (in front of the house). Don't winterize - Heat with a little space heater and kick furnace in if getting a freezing snap. No problems. Like to be able to go at a whim's notice. going to go to Oregon coast next weekend. Also, follow Paiceman's 2X / year wax.

Congratulations

My husband and I just in November purchased our third AS. We went from 19ft to 25 ft to now the 30 ft. You were wise to start with 30. We have been privileged to store ours at a secure military RV storage site for a reasonable price since 2007. It is about 20 minutes away. We keep a number of Damp Rid containers inside as well as doors and drawers partially open per manual recommendation. We check on things every couple weeks. We have tire covers and bring pilferage batteries home and attach to a trickle charge. Before our first use and after dewinterization, we plan to stay near dealership in a RV park in order to check all things electric and gas etc. just in case there is a problem and need to return to the dealer. Can hardly wait!

Due to HOA rules, We store in a commercial RV storage facility about 9.6 miles from home. We are in a covered, security gate, lots of cameras and fenced area. We have power in the trailer all the time plus two wash bays using RO water which can be used to fill fresh water tank, and a dumping station.

We have two trailers there and it is a significant expense. However no thefts or vandalism is worth the cost.

We are in the Phoenix metro area and shelter from the summer sun is important.

Having seen some Air Streams that have been through severe hail storms, I never considered outside storage. I have insurance that would cover hail damage, but, since we have frequent hail in our home region, I would find myself worried all the time. It's bad enough to encounter the possibility of hail while on trips. It usually takes us a couple of years to fine-tune a trailer to our tastes, so the idea of a new trailer, even if insurance covers a substantial part is not something we look forward to.

We have a locked RV/boat storage area in our development, and we rent a spot there for about $75 a month, which seems pretty fair. It's outside, but close by the house so that we can keep an eye on it, and go over to work on things. So far we are doing weekend trips about once a month while we get used to everything and work out any issues. We have longer trips planned during the summer, and then once we retire. We wash it after each trip with a combination wash/wax, so it is staying really clean so far.

This may not be an option for you, but I store mine inside and plugged in, is is worth a lot to me.

Don't worry about hail damage on the westcoast. The hail isn't big enough to cause damage.

Problem with hanger storage is if the airport receives FAA funds, non-aircraft projects/storage is a no-no. Not to say that it doesn't happen, but could present problems.

I live in Portland OR and we store ours outside. Just like Fly at night says, we have found a couple of leaks that we would otherwise may not have found so easily.

We are planning on moving this summer to the high dessert, we want a covered, heated storage once we move..

Get a slightly larger hanger and park the Airstream along side your airplane.
