Advice Needed for Storage in Chicago Area

Hi, everyone. I am very new at all this "forum" business - forgive me if I make a mistake..

I am relatively new to Airstreaming - have a 2006 Bambi (whom I love). Up till now, have parked her in an outdoor storage site in Elk Grove, IL, in-between trips to the state parks. I learned yesterday that my storage site is closing pronto, and my Bambi Girl need to move ASAP!

Where is a safe place, not crazy money? I was considering the Bolingbrook area, as that is the closest Airstream dealer's location. I am looking up sites cold on the net, and really need some input. (will call the dealer tomorrow..)

Thank you for your help. Any advice on what to look for in a storage facility would be good, too.

Eastgate Storage


We have a 2007 Bambi and stored last winter at Eastgate Storage between Bollingbroke and Joliet. It is unheated, indoors and you can take your AS in and out whenever you want. They have huge steel buildings in the midst of cornfields with a manager living on site. Call Scott at (815) 790-7054. He is good at returning calls. You can pay for year round storage or 6 months. We had no problems with them and they delivered exactly what they said that they would.

Good luck,
