Types of RV storage

Enjoying the open roads with your RV, travel trailer, or motorhome is a delightful part of life in Cottondale, Alabama, but what about those times when your home-on-wheels isn't rolling? Renting a storage space for your RV in Cottondale is a great solution to protect your vehicle when it's not in use.

  • Outdoor RV Storage: An individual homeowner with an extra-large driveway or a commercial property owner with an expansive lot can offer this option. Outdoor storage provides easy access and maneuverability for any size of RV, from compact pop-up campers to sprawling fifth wheels. However, you'll need to consider additional protective measures for your vehicle due to exposure to Cottondale's weather elements.
  • Covered RV Storage: This type of storage can be provided by a homeowner with a carport or a commercial site with a large covered area. The benefit of covered storage over outdoor storage is the added protection from sun, rain, and other weather conditions, maintaining the aesthetic and functional aspects of your RV for longer.
  • Indoor RV Storage: Storage options for this category are generally found in large residential garages, commercial warehouses, or other specialty storage units. While these may be a little harder to find, they offer the highest level of protection from weather elements and potential vandalism. If you're storing a high-end motorhome or your RV has particular sensitivities, indoor storage in Cottondale is the ideal choice.

Whichever option you choose, remember to consider what best fits your RV and your storage needs, always keeping in mind the benefits each type of storage provides.

Choosing the best RV storage

Discovering the most suitable space for storing your motorhome, travel trailer, or RV in Cottondale, Alabama involves a few key considerations. Consider not only the size of your vehicle but also how easily you can access the space and the location's proximity to you.

  • Size of the Storage Space: Ensure that you have ample room to park your camper and also some extra space if you're planning to store other outdoor or camping equipment. The length, width, and height of the storage area must accommodate your RV with room to spare for ease of movement and precaution against potential damages.
  • Access to the Storage Space: When thinking about storage, it's also important to consider access hours and accessibility of the storage space itself. You'll want a location that allows you to retrieve your RV or trailer at a time that suits you, particularly for those spontaneous road trips! Moreover, it's beneficial if the storage space is easily accessible for driving in and out.
  • Location of the Storage Space: The proximity of the storage site to your home or your frequent routes can be a major convenience factor. Additionally, consider the safety of the area. A storage space situated in a secure, residential neighborhood may provide peace of mind that your RV, camper, or motorhome is stored safely.

Climate considerations

When considering storage for your RV, motorhome, or travel trailer in Cottondale, Alabama, seasonality is a crucial factor. In peak summer, the city experiences average high temperatures of around 93 degrees Fahrenheit. Excessive heat can lead to cracking and fading of your vehicle's exterior, putting an indoor storage option into consideration for protection. Similarly, the winter months bring average lows of about 33 degrees Fahrenheit. These colder temperatures may cause freezing of plumbing lines in your camper. Using insulated, protective covers can be a great help to combat such issues, whether you're storing your RV indoors or outdoors. Remember, preparation is key to keep your recreational vehicle in top condition during storage.
