5 Reasons To Use RV Storage This Year


A Recreational Vehicle is a great way to get out and explore nature on your own terms. You can take trips for as much or little time as you want to, and stay in comfort at every stop. Any RV owner knows the freedom that a recreational vehicle can give you. However, there is one thing that can be tricky with an RV; storing it when you are not taking a trip. Storing your RV at home is an option, but it takes up a lot of room and can be a hassle. We recommend using professional RV storage for your RV when it’s not in use. After all, you paid a lot for your RV and are proud of it, so why not keep it as safely as you can. These are our top 5 reasons that using RV storage is the best way to keep your RV safe when you’re not using it.

  1. Security

    One of the first considerations with any kind of storage is how safe is this? When you store your RV you should certainly be thinking about how secure the spot you are keeping it is. The last thing you want is for any damage, or even theft to occur when your vehicle is stored away. Professional RV Storage has the benefit of being a secure environment. At Riel Park we have 24-hour security monitoring meaning that your RV will always be safe and secure.

  2. Space

    Storing an RV at home has a very big downside, you generally won’t have much space for anything else! An RV by its very nature is a large vehicle, this means that when you come to store your RV when you are not using it, you run the risk of losing a lot of space at your home. Storing your RV at an RV storage facility instead will free up space at home, while your RV sits securely out of the way until you plan to use it again.

  3. Flexibility

    Storing your RV at home can be tough if you’re short on space. Getting it out again can involve having to move a lot of things around and can be quite an effort, meaning that instead of an easy solution, getting your RV out for a trip turns into a long process. Home storage also means that generally you’ll have to dedicate a spot for your RV at home all year round. Using a storage facility for your RV gives you the flexibility to use your vehicle whenever you need with ease. You also have the flexibility to only rent your storage space when you need it.

  4. Keep it on solid ground

    Storing an RV on anything other than solid ground isn’t a great idea. This is because weather changes can change the condition of the ground your vehicle is on, and in the worst cases, your RV could get stuck or damaged. At Riel Park we have a 4.5 acre paved parking lot with big spaces, so you’ll never have to worry about your vehicle sinking into soft or muddy ground.

  5. Keep it out of view

    When an RV is sitting on your drive, in your yard or on the street in front of your house it can be a bit of an eyesore. In some towns and cities there are bylaws prohibiting some kinds of RV storage and parking. Using storage to safely store your RV is the best way to avoid any potential problems of storing it at your home, and keeps it out of view when you’re not using it for an adventure!
