One of the things I looked for moving from Michigan was a home in better weather with an RV garage. I found a subdivision here in southern Utah that many of the homes have a big garage built into the house. No sun or rain beating up the RV. In Michigan the RV went in the barn.

Lake Havasu City, AZ had sold ‘storage condos’ for years. They are building them fast and selling faster. Generally the RV sized units are 14’X14’X50′. Plenty large enough for any motorhome. I bought one for $35,000 a few years ago. They are selling new for $50,000 now. I rent mine out year round for $200 a month. Havasu is booming now and all new home have huge attached RV garages. The prices in this article are metro prices where land is a premium. The guy who rents my unit, lives in southern CA.

Do the storage units have to have electricity?

Most I’ve seen have lights, electricity (120V/20 amp). Its not for running the RV, but to keep a battery tender running. There are bathrooms and showers inside the complex for tenants to use. Havasu is a big boating town and many of the smaller units are used for boat storage.

Land is dear, people are cheap, how much more fun when the population doubles in the next 40 years…

Wouldn’t San Francisco, as a sanctuary city, for illegal aliens also have to give sanctuary to all legal RVers? Maybe the Caravans should park there!

We choose our lifestyle. If you can pay the rent, great. If you can’t move to somewhere where you can or pick another life style. No more whining without a solution!

In Crossville, TN there is a subdivision that sells homes with attached motorhome garages. I know that several Vol State members live there. I do not know the price but not much more than homes in the area.

Russ, on the RV condo issue – – –

A friend of mine in Minden, NV is involved in this kind of real estate, and there, the equation has been expanded: RV storage with living space above.

Much like similar units on airports, where the airplane is hangared and the tenant has a small apartment on the second floor, these RV/person double condos have all sold out. For people who need to have a fixed-base, with a workshop, storage, and a bit of room-to-roam, they were an ideal solution. Some folks even set them up to live in the RV, and have the upstairs for a workroom, TV theater, art studio, etc. etc.
I don’t recall the exact price, but I think it was in the $175K range. But that was a while back.

Location, location… in the cornfields of central NY, 175K gets you that RV garage…and a 4 bedroom 1800sf house on 5 acres. Granted you may not want the brick and mortar base, and certainly don’t want NY’s socialist taxation, but it’s hard to see $175K for a garage with loft.

I have to say, I’m a bit disappointed to find that I have to ‘join’ the forum in order to comment on a couple of the articles I read this morning. I would have thought that as a regular paying reader I would automatically have access to this section.

Tommy, I don’t think that’s true, but perhaps Chuck or Diane can check into for you. Of course, I’m just the diode head around here, so perhaps I’m missing something.
