Storing Your RV at Your Favorite Campground

By Renee Nicole



5th wheel RVGoing camping in the RV is a lot of fun, but what do you do with the RV after the trip is over? While RV camping is pretty easy, RV storage can be a little tricky. It’s not always something that you can store on your property, and while there are facilities to store it at, it adds a few extra steps. First, you have to pick up your RV whenever you want to use it, which may be time consuming and require advance notice. Then, once you're home from your trip, you have to go through the hassle of dropping the RV off at the storage facility. If you find that you tend to go to the same park when you camp, maybe it’s time you looked into storing your RV right there at the campground.

While not all campgrounds offer RV storage, many do. On-site RV storage is becoming one of the more popular RV services, so more campgrounds are beginning to offer it. Some of the benefits are the RV services that you’ll receive. When you’re ready to go on your camping trip, all you have to do is give the campground a call, let them know you want to come up, and they will set the RV up for you. By the time you arrive, your RV will already be set up in your campsite. You don’t have to worry about the hassles of getting it out of storage yourself, or even setting it up. Once you are done with your RV camping trip, the RV will be put back into storage until your next outing.

While prices vary campground to campground, the cost of storing your RV onsite is about the same as RV storage facilities, averaging around $40 a month. This is a great option for people that frequent the same park, and it definitely cuts down on some of the hassles of RV camping and storage. Ask if your favorite campground has RV storage as one of their own RV services.
