Temp storage between trips?

We are employed full time but would like to travel west of the Mississippi. Is it feasible to spend one trip towing west, leave our rig somewhere for a few months, fly home. Then, few months later fly back to rig, travel a week or two, store in new location, then leave it again and just repeat this process over and over until we eventually end up back home? Has anyone done something like this?

A few years back I read a blog written by a couple that done just that. I don't recall the details but it was a very positive adventure & it lasted a few years.
Many campgrounds go have storage facilities on site so I guess the logical thing to do is determine where you plan to end up, then find a place to store your rig.

We have not done this but met lots of folks during our first snowbird escape in the southwest this past winter. Seems many others both still working full time and retired prefer to tow less and store their Airstreams in warmer climates. Noted many storage facilities in Arizona and Utah.
Good luck with your adventures!

Ugh, same in FL. The facility I am at is loaded with 5th Wheels and Class A coaches for the summer and some of them have trailers full of their winter toys in the bay too. People definitely leave them./

My question is:
I have just ordered a 25' Flying Cloud FB, picking it up on July 3. It will probably be stored outside for the most part, especially in our Canadian winters.
To protect the Aluminum shell, has anyone tried spraying silicone spray, or WD-40 all over the exterior shell, to protect it?
It would make rainwater 'bead' for one thing, and probably help the sealants to seal.

If you come all the way West, we can recommend storage inside a re-purposed airplane hanger at the old McClelllan AFB here in Sacramento. That's where our AS is.
