Storage fees

Hello everyone,

We will be getting our new 28' International CCD shortly and unfortunately need to store it since we have no place on our property to keep it.

I have been checking storage places in my vicinity and have been given as low as $15/mo for outside storage to $60/mo for inside storage. Are these in the ball park? I know it's location dependent but I was just curious if this seemed reasonable.

I am in the greater St. Louis area (Highland, IL).

Sounds pretty fair to me.

California tends to be a little higher ... we're out here in the boondocks ... outside storage runs $25-35. Probably higher in the bigger cities.

If you can swing it .... go for the indoor storage.

Pretty good prices. Here in STL we see pricing from $40 outside to about $80 for inside storage. The biggest issue is security. Motorhomes are really getting hit in this area. One of the folks in our WBCCI unit has had their A/S diesal motorhome broken into twice (at two different locations). Thieves go after TV's and other electronics. A lot of these folks also leave a lot of other things inside which becomes booty for these thugs. When they go in they usually break the door window and then use crow bars to pry everything out of its mounts.

I have mine sitting at the Airstream dealer in Tucson. He is charging me $25 a month which seems quite fair.

60 miles NW of Minneapolis. I am near the edge of town and my trailer is out in the country 5 miles away. The trailer is stored in rented pole barn space with a sailboat and lots of SOBs -- the sailboat is the only thing that looks sleeker!

It costs me $40 a month. I am looking at an alternate inside situation where I can work on it easier at the storage site -- that costs $200 for a sailboat's winter storage, though I'd keep it there year round. My home is covered by covenants.

Here in pricey Silicone Valley, I pay $55 a month. And that's a fair deal here.

Thumbs up Not bad

When we're not down to Va Beach, our A/S is behind locked gates which, is monitored via a video camera and is lite up all night long. The guards, are themselves, in a trailer just across from the entrance. Cost is 400$ per yr just to keep our space available~ So you have an excellent deal.~

I had been paying $30 per month for outside storage in a secured lot, but then they jacked the rent up to $50 a month, and build a self storage unit building too close to where I had parked my trailer, so I moved away.

My son, who's a realtor, then found another place for me to store my trailer, but it is less secure. It is inside an old 40'x100' steel building that is closed on one end only (the end where I park my trailer). It's not the best site, but it is under roof, and I only have to pay $30 per month for it, and haven't been broken into yet -- so far so good!

My son also offered me a chance to rent a private building with a 12' door that has an electric opener (with heat, lights and electric inside) at $100 per month, plus utilities. I initially thought this was too expensive, so I turned down the offer. Now, he leases this place for himself, and although I've had second thoughts about wanting it for myself, so far he's said "No, you missed your chance!" But, if I get that new 30' Classic Ltd that I'm hoping to get, I guess I'll have to think about bribing him somehow into letting me have that building! (Normally, a unit like that would rent for considerably more than that in our area -- my son owns and rents out a number of car garages locally at $60 per month.)

Paid $125.00 a month for outside here on the east coast of south Florida. $ 300.00 a month is the cheapest we could find for inside storage.

Got tired of paying storage and bought a home with 2/3 of an acre in an area with NO HOA about a year ago. Yahoo!!!!!!! No more storage fees and can work on it or load it anytime. Will never do the HOA thing again. Finally feel like I'm living in the land of the free!

I built a 16' X 52' "Airstreamport" at the house.

Prior to that, I was paying $65 per month in the Houston 'burbs for a 30' covered, secure parking site.

The rear end on the 345 DID extend out a bit beyond the edge of the roof.

I pay just over $70 a month for a covered 30' spot with an outlet. It is gated with digital combo. Seems high but I couldn't find anything covered for less and did not want to worry about leaks and hail everytime we got a storm.

We pay $135 per mo NW of Tucson, in Oro Valley. It's $150 w/o the Senior discount. It is covered (not enclosed), gated, caretaker living on site. and completely asphalted.

Ours is almost the smallest unit in the place (70 spaces). Most of the others are 35' or larger MHs and 5ers. There is one Airstream besides ours from WA State.

It seems to me you are getting a bargain but in your climate I'd think you'd want enclosed storage.

Wow, you really have a great deal!

I live in North Dallas. The past 3 years, I paid $65 per month for secured outside storage. It was about 5 miles West of me. I did not have 24 hour access since they closed at 5pm then noon on Saturday and closed Sunday's (when I usually returned from a trip).

This past November, I found outdoor storage at a RV repair facility about 20 miles east of Dallas. They gave me a key to the lot, I have 24 hour access. It's not electronically monitored however a tenet lives on site, a dog inside the shop alerts the tenet. I talk to other RV owners (all types & large motor coaches) , no one has problems. The monthly fee is $45. A real convenience is Love's truck stop & dump station 2 minutes away.

Inside storage is starts about $300.
