RV Storage for City Dwellers

Here at Elite Self Storage, we know that the RV life can be a ton of fun. But what do you do when prime RV season has passed? You need to find something to do with your recreational vehicle during the winter months. If you’re in the suburbs or a rural area, maybe you’ve thought about storing it on your lawn or in your garage.

If you’re in an urban area, that’s not really an option though. We don’t really recommend that you store your RV that way even if you do have the space. Instead, you’ll want to find a safe place for RV parking that will allow you to easily access the RV as soon as the weather gets nice and you want to take a trip. Here’s a look at what city dwellers should consider when storing their RV.


You want to make sure that you’re able to get your recreational vehicle out as soon as the weather clears up and you want to go on that next adventure. You want a car storage solution that won’t make it a pain to get your vehicle back. At our facility, we allow our customers to access their belongings whenever they would like. That includes vehicles like your RV! As an added bonus, this makes it easy to check in on your RV whenever you need to inspect for damage or perform some maintenance.

You may also want to make sure that your storage facility is conveniently located. Being able to get to your RV via mass transit or having a friend nearby that can drive you to your RV parking space is a must. Fortunately, we’re conveniently located in Sioux City, just a few minutes from highway 75 North.


You want your RV to be accessible, but only to you! Naturally you’ll want to find a storage solution that’s also secure, giving you peace of mind when your RV is out of sight. Fortunately, Elite Self Storage uses the latest security measures and monitors the property at all hours. Your belongings are always safe with us. If you opt for RV parking at someone’s home, in a garage, or on a lot, you might not receive the same promises.

Storage Prep

When you find the place to store your RV, you have to make a few preparations. If you want to come back to an RV that’s in top shape, taking care of simple maintenance tasks like draining the water system, examining seals, and disconnecting the battery can help. Also invest in a cover for your RV if it will be parked outdoors for a significant amount of time. This can protect from cosmetic damage and more serious issues. You’ll also want to make sure that your tires are protected. Consult your mechanic to see if anything else needs to be done before your RV enters storage for the winter.
