How much do you pay to store your RV when not using it?


If you’re not a full-time RVer, then you need to store your rig somewhere when you’re not using it. Some lucky folks have room on their property. But others, probably most RVers, need to store it somewhere else, and often that involves a fee.

So our question today is, how much do you pay to store your RV?

We built a bus barn 54 x 20 x 16 feet tall. Pole barn construction, steel sided and roofed, concrete floor, fully insulated, heated, 50 amp electric, water and floor drain, attached to my existing 40 x 30 garage barn building. It cost $50K, but it will appreciate over time and my rig is secure and protected on my property, and will be a good selling point for a potential buyer when we sell our property.


We put our 38′ class A in an underground former Mushroom cave in Wampum, PA $410 for 5 months

We rent a 12×50 storage unit just outside of Farmington, MO with a 14 ft tall door and concrete floor. $175.00 per month includes electric with a 30 amp hookup. That keeps the batteries charged and one of our heat pumps going on our 2019 Tiffin Allegro RED 37PA. Quite worth it as it also keeps our rig protected from the elements.


$3.25 per foot X 55′ per month. 38′ 5er and crew cab extended bed 1 ton dually. Indoors, winter storage . In our driveway during season (late Mar’ to mid Nov’). Secure, dry, 50 Miles away but definetly worth it ! This year they are washing both units also.

We live on 35 acres about 3 miles from town, and have an RV garage. There’s electricity to it…Not insulated, but it keeps the critters out and the snow off!!!


We are Fulltimers, only store our coach for 2 months every 2 years while traveling overseas.
Am prepared to spend big bucks for safe, secure, indoor storage for that short period.
As the storage is air conditioned and coach plugged in, it’s well worth it.

We park our 28′ footer in the driveway. Easy to
load and unpack. We are out 3 or 4 days every
month so charging is not a problem. We dump
at the RV parks where we meet with our 30 or 40
friends each month.
You ignore all of us local club people who prefer
to be friends rather than be solo.

When not traveling, my RV is stored under a canopy that has a 50 amp power stand. so other than the cost to purchase it 4 years ago, it’s free plus the electrical draw. It only adds about $5.00 to my month to my power bill….

When I lost my husband and decided to move in or near my daughter to help my grandson, I made sure I would be able to keep my TT on my home site. We now have a duplex home where it is allowed as long as it is registered and has insurance and no one lives in it.

I rent a spot for the whole year as I am not a full timer and live in a condo where I can park on the street for just one night. When I need it they bring it out and when I put it back I unhitch in the parking lot and they put it back in storage. It is about $550 a year |(Cdn$) and works out real well. One draw back is they are closed on Sundays.

We leave ours at an RV Storage Facility (Covered) for $150/month.


Although we have an HOA, it will never curtail the parking of RVs, boats, etc beside or behind your personnel property. Here, it would destroy the resale immediately. The majority of owners fish and hunt. They will not put up with uppity outsiders tells them they cannot have their toys accessible.
Today, the outside temperature is approaching 70’s.

We have a shop it fits in perfectly

Due to HOA restrictions, I store my travel trailer 3.6 miles away , outside, on a gravel fenced in area for $40 per month. Acess is 24/7.


My storage is only $25Cdn per month!


We live in a gated community which allows you to have your RV at your residence for 48 hours to load & unload, however we have 2 storage yards in the complex which costs us $20/month to store our RV.


I pay $25 a month and thought that was expensive before reading the survey and comments.

My (vintage, classic,antique) coach is either in the back lot or in the barn when not is use. Though I checked off “I don’t pay anything” I can also assure you that while that is the closest answer, it is also patently false. Ok, so we live on a 5 acre lot and I have a barn, you have to know that I both paid up front to buy the place and continue to pay for it in local property taxes. So, while there may be no clearly defined cost, I can assure you that it is there.

Looks like most people live in more rural parts of the country….or maybe closer to the interior parts. We store our rv and boat in an enclosed storage place just outside the Bay Area in Ca. We just got notification that the rent was going up 30 bucks (now it’s $215.00 per month). The facility is just 3 miles from where we always camp, but it’s about 35 to 40 miles from home. At least we pay practically nothing for gas and very little to nothing on roof maint. or repairs from water and weather damage. I have to look on the bright side.

We pay $95/mo for a covered (not totally enclosed) spot on gravel at a storage facility here in Indiana. Our HOA does not allow storage in our driveway. When we retire in the next 5 years and become snowbirds, we’ve told our 4 children that at least one of them needs to build a home on enough land that we can live in our motorhome on their property for the summers!
