Types of RV storage

Renting RV storage in Gulf Shores, Alabama, is an excellent way to keep your travel trailer, camper, or motorhome safe and secure when it's not in use. The coastal city offers a variety of storage options that cater to every type of RV owner's needs and preferences.

  • Covered RV storage: This type of storage is ideal for protecting your motorhome from the elements. Think of residential carports or driveways with a solid roof cover. While they do not offer four-wall protection like indoor storage, they keep your RV shielded from harsh sunlight, rainfall, and other weather elements, a key consideration in Gulf Shores with its subtropical climate.
  • Outdoor RV storage: Typically, these are open spaces in residential areas like a large backyard or an unused portion of the property. If you're less concerned about weather exposure and more interested in having easy access to your RV, this could be the perfect option. It's an excellent choice for those with rugged, weather-resistant campers and the added advantage of this storage type is its accessibility.
  • Indoor RV storage: These involve storing your travel trailer or fifth wheel in enclosed structures like a large garage or warehouse. These spaces provide the highest level of protection from weather and potential vandalism. Think of properties that have large, unused spaces, like a barn or a spacious garage. In a city like Gulf Shores, with its potential for tropical storms, indoor storage can provide peace of mind knowing your RV has the most comprehensive protection.

Choosing the best RV storage

Planning to store your recreational vehicle, travel trailer, or motorhome in Gulf Shores, Alabama? Here's what you need to consider when choosing the perfect residential storage space.

  • Assessing Your Space Needs: Take accurate measurements of your RV, camper, or motorhome, including its length, width, and height. Don't forget to include things like extended mirrors, ladders, or bike racks in your measurements. Adequate space isn't only about fitting your vehicle into the storage space - it also ensures that you won't accidentally scrape or dent your RV during parking and removal, and provides room for any additional camping gear you may want to store.
  • Access Considerations: The hours of access permitted by the storage space is an important factor. You want to have access to your recreational vehicle when you need it - be it early morning or late evening. Furthermore, the accessibility of the space itself matters. Wide entrances, spacious lots, and the presence of turn-around spaces can make maneuvering your vehicle much easier, especially for larger fifth wheels and motorhomes.
  • Location and Safety Factors: Proximity to your home or frequent travel routes should be a key consideration when choosing an RV storage location. Easy access will not only make it more convenient for regular inspections and maintenance but also for those spontaneous weekend getaways. Safety is another paramount consideration. Residential areas often provide natural surveillance which can deter potential miscreants. Plus, some storage locations might be tucked away in quieter neighborhoods, providing you with peace of mind about the security of your camper or travel trailer.

Climate considerations

When considering storage for your RV, travel trailer or motorhome in Gulf Shores, it's important to think about the local climate. During the peak of summer, the average high temperature is around 90 degrees Fahrenheit. This intense heat can cause exterior paint to fade and tires to wear prematurely. To combat this, consider a storage space that offers shade, or use a high-quality protective cover designed for outdoor storage.

In contrast, the winter months see average lows of about 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Cold temperatures can damage your vehicle's plumbing system, especially if water is left in the pipes. Renting a space that's insulated or heated can help prevent this, as can winterizing your vehicle properly. Again, a good cover can help protect against the elements.

Regardless of the season, make sure your vehicle is clean and secure before storing it, to help preserve its condition and value.
