The Caravel is on the other side of the garage in the yard - I have pads for the tires and jack. She has power only but water is close enough. She may be on the market soon - have to downsize. Fun playing with the minds of the POA - they had a poorly written rule on TT and only restricted "work" trailers - Ouppppssss - I had to point that out in the yearly meetings - I have 4 acres - I would hate to turn them into a RV park but would if they made me angry.

We are lucky enough to keep our Airstream at home - safe and secure.

One of the main benefits is being able to do routine maintenance. This year I took my time and sealed the seams on the roof. Last weekend, I repainted the tongue.

It is also nice that we can keep our baby clean and and prepare for trips. I have a 30 amp outlet.

Bambi Port

We built a "Bambi Port" that cantilevers off the flat roof of our garage... It faces south; the west side is lattice that we have covered with a plastic tarp, and then we hang a tap in front...

Then we designed wrought iron gates and had them installed ... the gates open from the front and have a gate by the garage door for access...when it's all put away you can barely see the Bambi, and it's protected from view and the elements. We have a 30-amp line in the port as well...and cable.

We brought the gates out about 4 feet in front of the garage so that if we ever decided to get a bigger AS we'd have room for it.

first off, let me begin by saying how completely jealous and envious we are of all those who can park their AS's at home or close by. please refrain from any further bragging and boasting.

that being said -

unfortuneately, where we now live the hoa rulles allow only a 48hr stay, in the driveway, for cleaning, loading and prepping.

however, my time sense is often way off and our rig might actually remain a 'bit' longer. but we have good neigbors and so far no complaints.

when not on the move, we leave the AS in a local storage area with easy access to highways in case we feel the need to get away.

as you can see, we are somewhat dwarfed by the other sob's.

we did luck into an end spot so we don't have to back in; just pull-thru when coming home. also, good protection form the elements.

happy trails

Now that's exactly what I need for our 2 girls...sadly, nowhere to put it though. Ours sit along the NW side of our garage. One is in a vacant plot that we unfortunately do not own...

Ours lives outside in front of the shop (won't fit inside because RV door is on the narrow side). It has a 30 amp outlet.

These photos from the winter of 2009-10 to help everyone cool off.

I have a friend in Kansas that keeps his in underground storage in Missouri. Old limestone quarry caves. Tucked away from the weather and in constant "CAVE" temps. Never has to winterize.

I keep mine at my son's house ( 10 mi. away ) on a separate gravel driveway we had installed last year. Plan to run power out to it but for the time being plug in using an xtension cord to keep the batteries charged.

How about some feedback on temps? We are in the middle of a week
where the highs are around 100. We have been seeing interior temps of 115 when we check in the late afternoon. Today, under the shed, the interior was a cool 96.

Not quite as cool as Gene's photo above...

We don't have Texas temps here in WNY but it has stayed well above 85 for most of the Summer. Int temps.. 95+.

Sitting on the pad the AC is on 24/7 set at 80*, usually goes off at nite and cycles on about 15min per hour during the day. Comfortable inside with LOW humidity.
