Types of RV storage

Looking for a safe place to stash your travel trailer, motorhome, or camper in Pelham, Alabama? Renting a storage space can protect your RV and give you peace of mind when it's not in use.

  • Outdoor RV storage might be found in residential driveways or spacious backyards. Being the most economical option, this type of storage presents a great opportunity to protect your pop-up camper or travel trailer from the harsh weather Pelham can experience, while still allowing for easy access and maneuverability.
  • With indoor RV storage, you're likely to find options that range from oversized residential garages to commercial warehouses. These types of storage provide excellent protection from Pelham’s hot summers and occasional hail storms, ensuring your travel trailer or fifth wheel remains in pristine condition year-round.
  • Covered RV storage typically refers to carports, residential garage ports, or even larger commercial canopy structures. This type of storage can protect your motorhome from UV rays that can cause wear and tear over time, a particularly advantageous feature given Alabama's intense sun exposure. With this storage type, your RV will also get a bit more protection from rain and other elements compared to outdoor storage.

Each of these options comes with its unique advantages, but common to all is the safety and security they offer to your RV in the heart of Pelham, Alabama.

Choosing the best RV storage

When searching for the perfect storage space in Pelham, Alabama for any type of RV - be it a pop-up camper, travel trailer, fifth wheel, or motorhome - there are a few key factors to consider. These include the dimensions of the storage unit, how accessible the unit is, and the location of the storage area.

  • Proximity and Security: The location of your storage unit is of utmost importance. Consider how close the storage site is to your home or a major roadway for easy access. You also want to ensure that the area is safe and secure, providing peace of mind for your stored RV.
  • Accessibility: Also important is the ease of access to your stored motorhome. Check the opening hours of the storage area and if it offers around-the-clock access. It's also beneficial if the area has wide drive aisles, facilitating easy maneuvering of your RV in and out of the space.
  • Size of the Storage Space: Lastly, consider the size of the storage space. The length and width of the space should be enough to accommodate your RV comfortably, with extra room for maneuvering and possibly storing additional equipment or accessories. It's important that the RV isn't crammed into the space, which could lead to damage.

Climate considerations

When considering storage for your RV or travel trailer in Pelham, Alabama, it's crucial to consider the local climate conditions. The city experiences a range of weather conditions throughout the year, with the average high temperature in peak summer reaching about 91 degrees Fahrenheit and the average low temperature in peak winter dropping to around 33 degrees Fahrenheit.

Given these temperatures, your recreational vehicle might need some extra care. During the summer, the high heat can lead to damage, including fading or peeling paint, dried-out seals, and tire damage. Using a high-quality RV cover can protect your travel trailer or camper from the damaging effects of the heat.

In the winter, protecting your motorhome from freezing temperatures is also essential. The use of an insulated skirt around the base of your RV can help maintain warmer temperatures inside. It's also important to winterize your vehicle properly, including draining the water system and adding antifreeze to prevent freezing and possible damage.

Choosing a storage option that offers some level of protection against these weather conditions can go a long way in maintaining the condition of your RV, regardless of whether it's a pop-up camper, travel trailer, fifth wheel, or motorhome.
