Whether you're towing ATVs or horses, snowmobiles or boats, one thing is for sure: you need a spot to park your trailer during the offseason. If you don't have a massive garage, you'll need to find some trailer storage for those off-months where your trailer is not in use.
Here at Stor-It, we have you covered. Read on for trailer storage tips from our team and book your trailer storage space with us today!
Before getting a travel trailer storage unit, you are going to need to know what unit size is right for you and your trailer. When determining the right unit or parking space for trailer storage, you have three options in front of you.
When storing your trailer, you need a fairly large storage unit, especially if you want to back the trailer in and out. However, once your trailer is inside your storage unit, it's only going to take up so much space. That's because many trailers never come more than a few feet off the ground. They're much wider than they are tall. Even those with walls and roofs have a great deal of internal space. That's a lot of extra room for storage.
Whether you're trying to store seasonal items, collectibles, or a host of hobby-related items, investing in indoor trailer storage also means that you are getting a general storage unit for all of your non-essential stuff. Have extra storage boxes? Stack them on top of your trailer. Just keep in mind that excess weight may put a strain on the trailer itself, and any boxes you put on top of it will need to be removed before you hit the road.
If you live in an area where the climate is agreeable — or if you're storing your trailer during a mild season — consider outdoor parking spaces for your trailer. Many storage facilities offer outdoor parking for vehicles of all sizes, and trailers often fit the bill. Outdoor parking comes in two forms: covered and uncovered. While covered is preferable when precipitation is a factor, uncovered will do just fine in drier areas. One advantage of both is that they're typically more affordable than regular storage units. Consult storage providers in your area to see what they have available.
