Types of RV storage

Considering the transition to a mobile lifestyle or simply need a safe place to park your cherished motorhome during its downtime? San Mateo, California, offers a variety of RV storage solutions to cater to the varying needs and preferences of travel trailer owners.

  • Outdoor RV Storage: Ranging from residential driveways to commercial parking lots, outdoor storage is a common and convenient option for many RV owners. In a city like San Mateo where the weather is generally favorable, this can be a practical choice. From fifth wheels to pop-up campers, outdoor storage can accommodate a wide array of RV types and sizes.
  • Covered RV Storage: A step up from outdoor options, covered storage offers an added layer of protection for your camper. Carports, canopy-covered spaces, and RV-sized tents are common examples of this category where your vehicle can be shielded from direct sunlight and rain, which are essential considerations in a coastal city like San Mateo.
  • Indoor RV Storage: Offering the highest level of security, indoor storage solutions could be large residential garages or commercial warehouses. While they may be a premium option due to scarcity, the benefit of weatherproofing, privacy, and extra security they provide are unmatched. This option is suitable for high-end motorhomes that require top-tier care.

Each storage solution has something unique to offer, ensuring that regardless of your RV type or storage preference, there's a suitable space waiting for you in San Francisco's picturesque neighbor, San Mateo.

Choosing the best RV storage

Finding the perfect storage solution for your travel trailer or motorhome can seem daunting. Whether you own a compact pop-up camper or a spacious fifth wheel, the key to successful storage lies in considering the size of the storage unit, its accessibility, and its location.

  • Consider Accessibility: When storing your RV, accessibility is a crucial factor. You need to know whether the storage unit is available at the hours that suit your schedule. If you like to set out on spontaneous weekend trips, you'll want a storage unit with 24/7 access. Similarly, the ease of reaching the unit, whether it's on a ground floor or higher level, may impact your decision.
  • Analyse Location: The proximity and safety of the storage unit must be a factor in your decision. If you live in San Mateo and frequently travel around California, you would likely prefer a unit nearby to minimize travel time. The neighborhood's safety is also crucial, as it speaks to the security of your RV when it's not in use.
  • Evaluate Size: It's essential to measure your motorhome or camper to determine the ideal storage unit size. The unit should accommodate the RV's length, width, and height, and still provide enough space to move around safely. Besides the vehicle, you may want to store additional camping gear, so factor in some extra room for these items.

Climate considerations

When considering renting storage for your RV, travel trailer, or motorhome in San Mateo, one must first take into account the varying climate throughout the year. In the peak summer months, the average high temperature can reach up to a scorching 80 degrees Fahrenheit, which can potentially damage the exterior and interior components of your vehicle. It's advisable to use protective covers or shades to shield your vehicle from such high temperatures.

In contrast, during the peak winter months, the average low temperature can plummet to a chilly 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Such cold temperatures can cause your vehicle's systems to freeze, leading to damage. To protect your vehicle during this time, consider renting an indoor residential storage space that can provide shelter from the cold.

Remember to maintain your RV's exterior throughout the seasons, by cleaning and applying protective wax, this will extend the life of your vehicle's paint and prevent rusting.
