Best Storage Sizes for RVs
RVs come in a wide range of sizes, and parking spots at storage facilities vary in size, too, so it’s important to know where your RV will fit. Here are the different classes of RVs and the storage sizes they require:
Class A: A Class A motorhome needs a fairly large parking spot or storage unit. The space required could be up to 40 feet long. In order to store a motorhome indoors, you'd have to find a special RV storage facility.
Class B: A Class B motorhome can be up to 17 or 19 feet long, so you’ll need at least that much space for storage. Most vehicle storage facilities will have outdoor or covered parking to accommodate this class.
Class C: Class C motorhomes need spaces at least 30 feet long for storage. Usually, these will require a specialized facility for indoor storage as well.
RV Storage Pricing
Outdoor RV storage can start as low as $30 to $50 a month in smaller cities but could go as high as $60 to $100+ in bigger cities. Cost will correlate with the size of your RV, so expect to pay more for a Class A motorhome than you would for a Class B or small trailer.
Of course, indoor storage will always cost a bit more for the convenience. For unheated indoor storage, rates start around $50 to $125. If you want to have your RV protected from the winter, heated RV storage can cost anywhere from $100 to $450 a month. Again, prices will depend on the size of your RV, as well as by amenities offered.
Some facilities offer premium services, such as valet parking, battery charging, sewage dumping, and more, which will lead to higher rates, too, but they may be worth the investment. The convenience of doing everything at one place can be invaluable, and they can also increase the running life of your RV.
