What Should You Know About RV Storage?

Access is one of the most important things to consider when looking for a self storage facility to store your RV.
Remember, access should be considered on two levels. The accessibility of the space itself as well as the access hours to the facility.

Unit/Space Accessibility

Is the storage unit or space large enough and located in an area that will make it possible for you to park and store your RV properly?

Be sure to ask questions and make sure the space and unit you are reserving for your RV is accessible for the size of RV you own.

Accessible Hours

It is also important to note the hours in which the storage location allows you to access your RV throughout the week. If you are going to need to have access to your RV early on a Saturday morning, you will need to make sure the facility your are storing at has access hours that accommodate your needs.

You can find the access hours for all Shield Storage locations on our website on each facility’s webpage.

It is important to ensure that your RV will be safe and secure wherever you choose to store it. This is why we strive to provide the highest level of security possible for our customers.

Though the security features from location to location will vary, many of our facilities offer security features such as:

  • Digital Surveillance Systems
  • Fully Enclosed and Gated Facilities
  • Gate Access with Personal Access Codes Only
  • Protection Plans for Stored Property

When storing your RV at a self storage location, it is important to take into consideration the weather conditions of the area while your RV is being stored.

If your RV is being stored outside in an area where the temperatures drop significantly, be sure to prepare your RV for winter storage.

The location of your storage unit is vital!

Location can impact many aspects of your decision when choosing a better storage solution for your RV. Things to consider include:

  • The location of the facility in regards to where you live or freeway access.
  • The location of the unit/space itself to ensure you can easily maneuver your RV in and out of it.

What Types of RV Storage are There?

Indoor RV Storage

Indoor storage is a great option for your RV when available.

These units provide the most security and protection for your recreational vehicle.

Outdoor RV Storage

Outdoor storage provides customers who need a space to park their RV with a great solution.

With no size limitations, our uncovered, extended spaces provide a great solution for where to park your RV when you’re not on the road.

Covered Outdoor RV Storage

Some of the Shield Storage locations provide outdoor covered storage which provides more protection against weather and sun damage.

When available, covered storage is a great solution for keeping your RV safe and secure.

What is the Best RV Storage Solution for You?

Travel Trailers

Indoor: Most small trailers will fit inside a 10×20 storage unit. Some may fit inside a 10×10 unit but be sure to check your measurements first.

Outdoor/Covered: Any outdoor space, covered or uncovered, will accommodate small/lightweight trailers.

Indoor: We suggest that you find a storage unit that is at least 10×20 for your mid-size trailer. Some of our customers prefer to store their mid-sized trailers in larger units to ensure they have enough space around the trailer to maneuver for hook-ups.

Outdoor/Covered: Any outdoor space, covered or uncovered, will accommodate your mid-sized trailer.

Indoor: Finding the right indoor storage unit to fit your large trailer may be a challenge, but some properties, such as Placerville Self Storage in Placerville, CA have extended indoor units that are 10×30 in size.

Outdoor/Covered: Any outdoor space, covered or uncovered, will accommodate your mid-sized trailer.

Indoor: Most fifth wheel trailers are over 32 inches long which means you will need to find an indoor storage unit that is at least a 10 x 40 unit.

Outdoor/Covered: When looking for an outdoor space, covered or uncovered, to store your fifth wheel, you want to make sure that the space provided is large enough. Please contact us today for more information about the outdoor spaces available and where you can find the best storage location nearby.

Indoor: Most pop-up trailers can fit and be stored inside a self storage unit that is at least 10×10. These trailers tend to be smaller in size for easy transport and storage.

Outdoor/Covered: Your pop-up trailer will fit in most available outdoor storage spaces. Find your nearest Shield Storage location today to search availability and reserve your outdoor space today.

Indoor Storage: Most toy haulers have comparable dimensions to travel trailers. Thus, the exact dimensions of your toy hauler will determine whether or not inside storage will provide the best storage solution.

Find your local Shield Storage location to check what size indoor units are available.

Outdoor/Covered Storage: Since toy haulers can be up to 40 feet in length, finding a large enough outdoor storage space may be an issue at some storage facilities. When storing outdoors, be sure to allow for enough space to accommodate your hook-ups as well as the trailer length.


Indoor Storage: With the average length of a class A motorhome being around 30 feet, you could consider storing yours in a large indoor unit. One thing to consider, however, is the height of the vehicle and whether or not there will be enough clearance. If this is the storage solution you are looking for, contact us today to find out if there is a storage unit nearby that will accommodate your needs.

Outdoor/Covered Storage: Most of the outdoor spaces we have at our properties will accommodate your Class A Motorhome. However, if you have a longer motorhome, you may need to find a storage location that can accommodate that size of vehicle.

Indoor Storage: The average indoor storage unit may be too short too store your Class B Motorhome. Though the average length of a Class B Motorhome is about 20 feet, the height averages around 8 feet. Having the right size entrance is going to be the key for this storage solution. This may propose a challenge for getting your RV into the unit. Contact us today to learn more about storing your RV in a self storage unit at one of our locations.

Outdoor/Covered Storage: Most of the Shield Storage locations offer outdoor spaces that will accommodate your Class B Motorhome. Find your nearest location today to reserve your spot!

Indoor Storage: Class C Motorhomes are typically about 27 ft. long and can be as wide as about 9 feet. They do tend to be taller than a Class B model, standing roughly 10 feet high. Though indoor storage options may be limited, finding the right storage location may offer you what you’re looking for. Contact us today to find out if any of the Shield Storage locations near you offer storage units large enough to accommodate your Class C Motorhome.

Outdoor/Covered Storage: Though they are a bit larger than the Class B model, Class C Motorhomes will typically fit in the available spaces provided at many of the Shield Storage locations. Find your space today!
