Here's another idea we have used for a regular vehicle but could work with a TV & trailer as well, find a restaurant nearby with a parking lot and go in and ask the manager if you can leave your rig there for a few hours after you eat there, or even for a few hours before you eat there. We do this in our own downtown area when we go to see a concert, we go eat first and they let us keep our car there afterwards as parking is pretty tight downtown.

First, I'd never leave the trailer parked on the street.
Not because of theft but because of the city having it towed.
I'd call the museum and see if their lot will accommodate it.
Another choice is to call a campground and ask to just store it for a day, not in a space and not hooked up, unless you want spend the night.

This is a great idea, I often forget about those organizations.

I know what you mean. Organizations like this were once a primary source for information, but now we've all become spoiled with the ease of finding information online - regardless of how accurate it might or might not be.

When we traveled to Sioux Falls a few years ago we needed to find a place to park a 35-ft coach while we wondered around downtown on foot. We couldn't find anything reliable online, but one call to their tourist office and we had a safe/secure place to park about a ten minute walk away.

Propride hitch as theft deterrent

If you ever need a new hitch, consider a propride. Besides many of the other benefits, nobody has any clue what the heck it is. That in and of itself is a theft deterrent. In the summer i leave mine parked on the street. I have no worries. Few people even know what to do with a hitch like that.

FYI, in Ontario it is against the law to park a trailer on the street not attached to a vehicle, as told to me by an OPP officer.

Not know about particulars, but on a side trip in Cincy I parked Argosy in the Walmart parking lot, and have used such Walmart lots on trips to Mammoth Cave, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone. Hitch lock recommended and always said a prayer when drove off. Never had a problem.

Airstream Parking

Some might say its alittle different parking a motorhome vs a trailer but I have left my Airstream unattended in Walmart or Cracker Barral parking lots several times. With a trailer I would recommend using a hitch lock or trailer lock on the wheels. All I do is unhitch my Jeep and drive off. With gas so expensive these days I have done that several times to search not just for cheaper gas but also for gas stations that I could get the Airstream into safely.

Happy travels.....on my way to Fryeburg now!!!

Spontaneous moments do NOT work well with Airstream parking.
