How to Store a Mattress

RV Storage

Avid campers often invest in their own RVs in order to take weekend outings to the next level. These homes-on-wheels have the ability to make camping a luxurious experience and bring families closer together. However, owning a camper does come with its share of difficulties—like finding enough room for something of that size at home.

Fortunately, self storage facilities across the country provide outdoor RV storage for those who want to free up some driveway space and still have easy access to their recreational vehicles.

Understanding Unit Size With Your RV

RVs come in a wide range of sizes, so you have to be aware of that when looking for RV storage. Parking spots at storage facilities may vary in size, too, so it’s important to know if your RV will fit. Here are the different classes of RVs and the storage sizes they require:

RV Storage Unit Sizes

Most facilities cannot accommodate indoor RV storage unless they’re built for that specific purpose. RVs can be up to 13.5 feet in height, which isn’t available at a standard facility, so make sure you have proper clearance if you plan to store indoors.

Types of RV storage

Another thing to consider is whether or not you want to protect your RV from the elements, which may be recommended in a region with harsh winters. While most facilities have outdoor RV storage, some may offer indoor or covered RV storage as well.

Reasons for using RV storage

There are many great reasons for using self storage for your RV. Not only is RV storage an affordable and convenient option, it has many other benefits as well.

Free space

RVs come in a wide range of sizes, varying from compact 5th wheels trailers to large motorhomes. The largest, the Class A motorhome, can average between 25 to 40 feet long. The large size of most campers can easily take up an entire driveway or cause problems with home storage. Using RV or trailer storage allows you to take back some of that space.

Neighborhood covenant

A lot of neighborhoods have specific covenants that prohibit the parking of RVs or trailers on driveways for long periods of time. There are even rules against parking one along the side of your home in some neighborhoods depending on the regulations of your homeowners association. Camper storage allows you to follow HOA rules and still own the camping vehicle of your dreams.


It can be dangerous to leave an RV or trailer in front of your house, as they’re often magnets for vandalism and theft. Using RV storage can provide an added level of security for your favorite camper. Storage facilities often have high fences, gated access, and even video surveillance.

Convenient location

With so many storage facilities spread throughout the nation, you can easily find a location that’s convenient for you. Whether that means it’s close to your home or closer to the highway, you can choose a storage facility that makes hitting the open road easier than ever.


How do I prepare my RV for winter storage?

There are many things you can do to prepare your RV for winter storage, all of which will depend on if you’re storing outdoors or indoors. For outdoor storage, you’ll want to be especially careful, as the weather can damage your RV over long periods of time. Take a look at some of the most important preparation steps below:



Explosives are one of the top storage unit prohibited items. Explosives include Compressed Gasses, Propane tanks, Gasoline, Fireworks, Cleaning supplies, Aerosol cans and Kerosene. Unsure if an item is considered an explosive? If it could start a fire, it is prohibited. We want to keep your belongings protected in our storage unit. If an explosive went off inside your unit, it would cause untold damage for your items as well as the items in the neighboring units. 


Bullets and other forms of ammunition are explosive by nature, so they are prohibited.


Most self storage units do not allow any kind of firearm. This includes revolvers, pistols, shotguns, and rifles. If you’re looking for a way to store your guns safely, consider a gun safe for your home. 


You are prohibited from storing or using materials in this storage unit that are classified as hazardous or toxic under any local, state, or federal law or regulations. To keep your belongings and the belongings of others protected, keep hazardous materials out of your storage unit. This includes Toxic substances, Acids, Disinfectants, Fungicides, Radioactive materials, Biological waste (Fertilizer), Paint Thinner and Chemicals. 


All food items, including pet food, are on the list of storage unit prohibited items. If left in a storage unit, food will rot, attracting insects and rodents to your unit. It can also lead to infestation issues for the entire storage facility. As you pack containers and boxes in your unit, remember to check your holiday decorations, as many are food based, containing corn and other items. It could lead to the growth of mold or other bacteria. 


It should go without saying, but people and pets are prohibited from residing in storage units. It’s not only against storage unit restrictions, but it is also against the law. Don’t ever leave a person or a pet inside a storage unit. Plants will shrivel and die in your storage unit, so don’t keep them in storage.


We recommend keeping jewelry or other highly valuable items with you, rather than in your storage unit. Most storage units do not offer any kind of liability insurance for these items. Some prohibited items include: Money, Furs.


It should go without saying that illegal items under any local, state, or federal law or regulations are on the list of storage unit prohibited items. If it’s illegal, you cannot store it. 


It doesn’t matter whether the scent is good or bad. If there’s an odor, don’t put it in a storage unit. From perfume and cologne to cans of Febreeze, keep it out of your unit to prevent a bad reaction with the other items you are storing. This also includes moth balls: We all think of those as great when storing wool items at home, but they do not do well inside a unit. If you have a question about an item, check with our team. Some prohibited items include: Perfumes, Water bottles, Drinks, Nail Polish remover, Chemicals, Paint, Petrol, Oil. 

Wet items are another no-no, as they can create mold and spread to your neighbors’ belongings. If you’re moving in while it’s raining, be sure to bring additional towels to thoroughly dry your belongings. 


The majority of self storage units include tires on their list of storage unit prohibited items. Tires are difficult to move. Unfortunately, some storage unit users disappear and leave their belongings for the storage unit to get rid of, making it difficult for storage companies. While you can store a vehicle with the tires on it, you can’t store loose tires. If you need to dispose of tires, reach out to 1-800-Got-Junk?, and they’ll assist you with tire recycling. 


12: Uninsured Vehicles or Vehicles That Aren’t Operational

If you want to store a boat, truck, motorcycle, or RV in a storage facility, you need to make sure to insure them. That even goes for trailers, which must have fully functional tires. The reason why is simply that it’s unsafe. When you rent a storage unit, the on-site manager will ask for proof of registration, insurance, and license. Some prohibited items include: Vehicles that are not registered or insured or that you do not hold the title to. 

Other than the items listed above, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about whether or not an item can be put in storage. Ask us! 

What happens if we discover prohibited items in storage:

Storage of any Prohibited Items may result in additional fees and penalties, including and up to termination of your rental agreement. Prohibited Items that we discover will be quarantined and, at our sole discretion, either disposed of or returned to you, at your cost. 

If we find that you have stored any of these items, there will be a $100 non-refundable fee each month until removed.
