Why You Shouldn’t Store Your RV at Home

Now that the summer season is starting to come to an end and you may not have as much free time on your hands, it may be time to start thinking about storing your RV away for a while. For some, it’s instinctual to simple pull the RV into your driveway and wait until the time comes to bring it out again. After all, considering the fact that Southern California doesn’t exactly get an overload of snowfall each winter, you don’t have to worry much about protecting it from such harsh elements. While this is true, we still think that storing your RV somewhere else may be a good idea.

Why You Shouldn’t Store Your RV at Home | Hemet Valley RVHere are a few reasons why:

Not enough space to store it on your property. This is often the case for many RV owners. Even if you have a pop-up recreational vehicle that folds in, the size is still pretty large. Storing your RV on your property takes up a ton of valuable space that can be used to park everyday vehicles or smaller recreation toys, such as four wheelers, jet skis, boats, etc. Plus if you don’t have much open space to begin with, a large RV may take up open space for your children to run around on.

Lack of security. On a more obvious note, storing your RV in an area that is not properly secured opens you up to the possibility of having your RV stolen or tampered with. On another note that not many RV owners really think about, it may also draw attention to your home from burglars. Think about it, if your RV is parked outside of your home all of the time and all of a sudden, it’s not there for a week, this alerts potential thieves to the fact that you’ve probably taken the vehicle and are gone on vacation, leaving the house unattended.

It can be an eyesore for both you and your neighbors. Even if you don’t mind the bulky presence of your RV on your property, your neighbors might. Unless you don’t mind causing a rift between you and your neighbors – who may have agreed to look after your home when you’re away camping on the weekends – this is definitely something to consider. You may think that just because it is on your property, it shouldn’t have any effect on them, but that isn’t always the case. It may turn out that the largeness of your RV is blocking them from a certain view or that it may even be blocking the natural light from reaching their windows.
