Types of RV Storage

Storing an RV or camper in Columbus offers convenience, security, and protection for your investment.

  • Indoor storage can provide the highest level of protection from the elements and has the added benefit of providing an enclosed space for your RV. Examples include large garages or carports.
  • Outdoor storage sites provide a secure, open-air setting for RV storage. Examples include parking lots or driveways.
  • Covered storage is a combination of indoor and outdoor storage. It includes covered areas such as carports, which provide protection from the sun, wind, and rain but don’t provide enclosed spaces.

Choosing an RV Storage Unit

Finding the perfect storage space for your RV, motorhome, trailer, or camper in Columbus, Ohio, can be a bit daunting, but with the right considerations you can be sure you’re selecting the best option for your needs. Here are several key considerations for selecting a residential storage space for an RV in Columbus:

  • Size – consider the size of the storage space and make sure it’s large enough to accommodate your RV, camper, motorhome, or trailer.
  • Accessibility – make sure you can easily access the storage space with your RV and check to see if there are any restrictions on the hours you can access it.
  • Security – look for a storage space that offers adequate security measures with secure locks and a secure facility.
  • Location – consider the location of the storage space and make sure it’s conveniently located and easily accessible.
  • Parking – make sure the storage space has adequate parking for your RV.

Climate Considerations

Renting storage for motorhomes, campers, and trailers in Columbus, Ohio should consider the climate and weather throughout the year. Average high temperatures in summer range from 80-88 degrees Fahrenheit, and average low temperatures in winter range from 16-29 degrees Fahrenheit. During the summer months, RV owners should be aware of the potential for extreme heat and humidity which can cause damage to the interior of their vehicle. In the winter months, RV owners should take into account the possibility of snow and ice accumulation which could put stress on the vehicle's exterior.

RV owners should also consider the use of protective measures such as covers and tarps to protect their vehicle from extreme weather conditions. Furthermore, parking spaces should provide enough space for the RV to be driven in and out to maintain the vehicle’s mechanical systems. Regular maintenance should also be completed on the vehicle to ensure it is in optimal condition throughout the year.

FAQs About Columbus RV Storage Units

The average cost to store your RV in Columbus is $136 each month.

The RV storage size you need depends on the class of vehicle you have. For instance, a Class C RV should have between a 20- and 40-foot-long, 15-foot-high storage space, while a small travel trailer will require at least a 10 X 10 storage unit.

Here is what your neighbors might offer:

  • Flexible access: Rent a Columbus RV storage that has 24/7 access, ideal for accessing your vehicle on your own time frame.
  • Security: Ensure that your RV has the most secure storage possible by selecting a listing that offers security such as a padlock, 24-hour surveillance, security cameras, or an access code.
  • Start your RV once a month if you're not using your RV for an extended timeframe.

    Here's what you should do if you have to store your RV long-term: Clean the inside and defrost the fridge, prevent rust by repairing any holes or cracks, power wash the exterior and put on an RV cover, and start and run the engine once a month.

    It's a good idea to winterize your RV, as Columbus temperatures can get below 35 in the winter. Put antifreeze in the pipes, replace A/C filters and remove and store batteries, and seal up any holes or cracks to keep rodents from entering.

    Try not to store a RV outside in the winter. Columbus's high winter humidity can allow mold and mildew to develop in your RV. Rent climate-controlled RV storage to be fully protected against moist air.

    It's essential to protect your RV from Columbus's scorching summer heat. Increase circulation by opening air vents; wash and wax the outside; clear out, clean, and defrost the fridge; drain water tanks; and put on window and tire covers and an RV cover.

    Rent indoor, climate-controlled RV storage to prevent mildew and mold from developing, since Columbus humidity levels get fairly high in the summertime.

    Insurance is suggested for RV storage in Columbus. Check your renter's or homeowner's insurance policy to confirm that it covers potential theft or damage while your RV is in storage.
