Central Oregon is known for some of the most beautiful lakes, rivers and biking trails in the country. Residents who are fortunate enough to live here find the time and means to go exploring—especially during the summer. Because of this, our RV storage is in high-demand. So much so that we had to expand our facility to accommodate the influx of recreational vehicles. The latest addition offers outdoor RV storage which is perfect for trailers, campers, and even boats.

RV Storage FAQ
What is the average cost to store an RV?

Should I store my RV indoors?

There are damage risks related to storing your RV for long periods of time outdoors. Direct sunlight may cause paint to fade and crack, if shades are not drawn, interior upholstery may also be sun damaged. Moisture introduced by rain, snow, or even hail can cause rust or leaks to develop. The last thing any RV owner wants to find is mold growing in the damp interior of their motorhome.

Where can I park my RV?

Most of the time, RV-owners will not have room on their property and often resort to parking their RVs on the street.

How do I store my camper for the winter?
When cold weather is on its way, it is important to understand how to store your camper for the winter. Here are some tips to make sure your RV is ready for long-term storage:
- Drain the Water System - Be sure to drain water from all plumbing, fresh and waste water tanks. Run non-toxic antifreeze through the plumbing system to prevent broken pipes due to freezing.
- Prep the Exterior - Inspect the roof, sidewalls, seams, doors, windows, and panels. Seal any cracks or holes you find. Your local RV mechanic or dealer can provide consultation or service.
- Choose a Safe Location - Storing your RV in a safe place is an important part of storing in over winter. When you choose a location, ask yourself if your motorhome will be exposed to damage risks, such as from the elements, passing traffic, or even crime. Will it be in the way of street traffic or your driveway? Will it block views from your house? Another option is storing it at a storage facility such as Secure Storage. Your RV will be protected and kept out of the way when not in use.
- Cover Up and Protect the Tires - If you decide to store your RV outside all winter, be sure to cover it completely with a specialized fitted cover. A conventional tarp often traps water underneath, which could cause moisture damage and can shift in windy environments, leaving scratches all over your RV. Additionally, cover your tires using fitted covers to protect them against harsh weather.
- Store Your Batteries - To preserve the life of your batteries, disconnect and store them in a cool (not cold) dry place. Cold temperatures can drain batteries of their charge over time. Storing them in this way preserves them better for next season.
- Use Fuel Stabilizer - Fuel that sits for a long time can form deposits that will clog up fuel lines and worse, your RV’s engine. To avoid this costly incident, add fuel stabilizer to your gas tank before storing. Make sure your follow the instructions on the label when you run it through your fuel system.
- Prevent Rodents - Mice and rats love RVs and campers as winter homes. They chew through insulation, wires, upholstery, and pretty much everything else. Their feces are messy and poisonous. Be sure to remove any food before storing your RV and be sure that all hatches, windows, and doors are secured.
- Check On Your RV Periodically - Set a reminder to check on your RV every few weeks while it’s in storage. A quick inspection of the exterior for leaks and the interior for unpleasant odors will help prevent a bigger problem next spring. Start the motor and generator and do an inspection of the electrical system too. Be sure to take care of any problems sooner than later so that your motorhome is ready to go next season.
