Extra Space Storage is the perfect place to store motorhomes, no matter what size you own. Our affordable storage solutions include indoor, outdoor, and covered parking for all types of RVs.


There are three different types of storage for recreational vehicles at Extra Space Storage locations across the country: indoor, outdoor, and covered. All are great options with varying benefits and price points.

Indoor RV Storage

If you prefer to store an RV indoors, drive-up access storage is a good solution. These self storage units provide a garage-like, enclosed storage space, providing more protection than other vehicle storage options. 10x20 storage units can handle small trailers, while 10x40 storage units are better for large trailers. Select locations may also offer heated and climate-controlled RV storage.

Outdoor RV Storage

One of the most common and cheapest RV storage options is outdoor storage. Options for outdoor RV and camper storage vary from location to location. Some facilities have designated RV parking while others have open lot parking. These storage spaces start as small as 8x20 and are available up to 40 or 50 feet in length. This solution can work for practically any motorhome, if you don't mind exposure to the elements.

Covered RV Storage

Covered RV storage offers a bit of what RV owners love about both indoor and outdoor storage. With a protective roof, these covered parking spaces provide protection from the sun, rain, and more, but they're also more affordable and can often accommodate larger vehicles than indoor drive-up storage units can. Covered parking spaces are available as large as 40 feet in length at certain locations.


Recreational vehicles come in a broad range of sizes, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the self storage options for a class A motorhome will be different from those for a class B or a pop-up camper. Below, we discuss the storage unit sizes and outdoor parking options for each type of RV below.

Camper Trailer Storage

With several types of RV trailers, storage options can vary drastically within this category of vehicles.

Small/Lightweight Trailers

  • Indoor Storage:

    In many cases, you’ll be able to store a small travel trailer indoors. Small trailers typically measure between 13 and 20 feet in length and less than ten feet in width, so they can be kept in 10×15 units and 10×20 drive-up storage units. Pay attention to the height of your camper, though. Small trailers can be as short as seven feet tall, but many are taller than eight feet. Standard self storage units have eight-foot ceilings, which will accommodate some but not all small trailers.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: Practically any type of outdoor RV storage option will work for small travel trailers. Small trailers will easily fit in standard 20-foot parking spots, an open lot, or covered parking. If you don’t feel the need for indoor storage, any of these options can save you a little money.

Mid-Sized Trailers

  • Indoor Storage:These trailers are typically between 18 and 25 feet in length, but typically measure above eight feet tall. Because of this, finding an Extra Space Storage facility with taller ceilings, such as ten feet or even higher, will be necessary when storing indoors. If there is a facility with tall enough ceilings near you, 10×20, 10×25, and

    10×30 drive-up storage units will all be possible solutions depending on the length of your travel trailer.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: When looking to store a mid-sized trailer outdoors, you’ll have plenty of options. Uncovered spots, including parking spaces and outdoor lots, are often the most affordable solution. Covered outdoor parking is another option for this style of camper that provides more protection than uncovered outdoor and a lower price than indoor storage. With this size of travel trailer regularly exceeding 20 feet in length, look for locations that offer 30-foot parking spaces.

Large Trailers

  • Indoor Storage: With large travel trailers often exceeding 30 feet, finding indoor RV storage won’t be as simple. Trailers on the lower end of this category fall under 30 feet, so a 10×30 storage unit will work if the ceilings are tall enough. Some Extra Space Storage facilities have self storage units as large as 10×40. So indoor storage is an option, but it might not be as readily available.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: With the largest travel trailers, storing outdoors is very common and a more affordable option. Extra Space Storage locations have outdoor parking spaces as large as 40 to 50 feet in length, so accommodating these large recreational vehicles isn’t an issue.

Fifth-Wheel Trailers

  • Indoor Storage:

    There are varying sizes of fifth-wheel trailers, including trailers as small as 22 feet in length, but it’s far more common for fifth wheels to exceed 30 feet. For smaller fifth-wheel trailers, a 10×25 or 10×30 drive-up storage unit will work as long as the unit’s ceilings are high enough. For more common trailers ranging from 32 to 36 feet in length, a 10×40 storage unit is what you should look for if you’ve decided on indoor storage. If you own a fifth-wheel trailer longer than 40 feet, indoor storage might be available at select locations, but outdoor storage will be the more readily available option.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage:

    For fifth-wheel trailers, outdoor or covered vehicle storage is a common choice for RV owners. Both options are more affordable than indoor vehicle storage. Both outdoor and covered parking spaces are available as large as 40 feet at various locations.

Pop-Up Campers

  • Indoor Storage:Traditional pop-up campers are typically between eight and 20 feet in length, around seven to eight feet wide, and roughly five feet tall when folded. This makes drive-up storage units a good option for those seeking indoor storage. Most variations of pop-up campers, such as a-frame pop-ups and flip-out campers, can also fit into 10×10 units, 10×15 units, or 10×20 drive-up storage units with ease. The two types of campers that vary will be high wall and toy hauler pop-ups. High wall pop-ups might require you to find a storage unit with higher ceilings, and toy hauler pop-ups often exceed 20 feet in length, so a large storage unit like a 10×30 might be necessary.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: Finding outdoor storage for pop-up campers at an Extra Space Storage location will be relatively simple. Most campers easily fit into a standard 8×20 parking stall designed for cars.

Toy Hauler Trailers

  • Indoor Storage: Some toy hauler trailers start just over 20 feet in length while others exceed 40 feet in length. Depending on your toy hauler’s length, a 10×25, 10×30, or even a 10×40 drive-up storage unit could be an option for indoor RV storage. That said, height also factors in. If you’re looking for an indoor solution, make sure to call your nearby Extra Space Storage location to see if there are units available that can accommodate the height of your trailer.

  • Outdoor Storage:

    With many toy hauler trailers exceeding 30 and even 40 feet in length, outdoor storage is more readily available and more affordable. Whether you go with outdoor or covered storage, parking spaces are often available as large as 40 feet, and height isn’t an issue. These outdoor spaces easily accommodate large trailers while offering a secure storage solution for your RV.

Motorhome Storage

Motorhomes vary widely in size. Because of this, the recommendations for motorhome storage sizes and types of self storage also vary to provide a range of suitable storage solutions.

Class A Motorhomes

  • Indoor Storage: Finding indoor storage for a class A or diesel pusher motorhome won’t be as easy as other RV types. In some cases, 10×40 drive-up storage units will work for shorter class A motorhomes, but height can be an issue, as most class A motorhomes are around 12 feet or higher.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: For this size of motorhome, outdoor vehicle storage will likely be far easier to find and will certainly cost less. Both outdoor and covered parking spaces are often available as large as 40 feet, making them perfect for recreational vehicles of this size.

Class B Motorhomes

  • Indoor Storage: With camper vans typically measuring around 22 to 25 feet in length and roughly nine to ten feet in height, it’s possible to store them inside of a drive-up storage unit. Either a 10×25 storage unit or 10×30 can accommodate these vehicles. It’s important to check with the Extra Space Storage location regarding the height of the units at their location, though.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: For class B motorhomes, outdoor storage provides a more affordable alternative to indoor storage. Many Extra Space Storage locations have 30-foot parking spaces available. Covered parking offers more protection from the elements and spots as large as 30 feet in length.

Class C Motorhomes

  • Indoor Storage: With class C motorhomes ranging from roughly 24 to 32 feet in length, 10×30 or 10×40 drive-up storage units will be the best option. Class C motorhomes are typically taller than ten feet, so finding an Extra Space Storage facility with ceilings high enough to accommodate these vehicles will be necessary.

  • Outdoor/Covered Storage: Like most other RVs, outdoor or covered vehicle storage is a popular option for class C motorhomes. Outdoor and covered storage will both be more cost-effective than indoor storage, and height won’t be an issue. Parking spaces for both options are as large as 30 to 40 feet in length, allowing you to comfortably park your RV in a secure storage space.

An RV is a big investment. Knowing that it's safe while in RV storage is very important to our customers. With security measures including electronic gate access and video surveillance, Extra Space Storage takes security seriously.

Access Hours

The ability to take your RV out and put it back into self storage when it's convenient for you is something that shouldn't be overlooked. Most Extra Space Storage locations offer extended access hours from 6am to 10pm, and some even offer 24-hour access storage.

Local Weather

Knowing your local weather will guide your vehicle storage decision, especially in regard to choosing between indoor, outdoor, and covered storage options. For example, if you live in an area with harsh storms including hail storms, finding a covered or indoor option might be worth it.


Finding the most convenient location for your RV storage needs will play a big role in your overall experience. Whether that's a nearby location closest to your home or a location closer to where you regularly vacation with additional boat storage, take the time to think through the location that'll offer the most convenience.


Properly preparing your motorhome for self storage is critical for keeping in top condition, regardless of whether you’re storing indoors or outdoors.

Clean Your Motorhome

Cleaning your motorhome before storage is a must to keep it in top condition and prevent wear. Make sure your motorhome is thoroughly washed and clean doors, windows, and wheels. You'll also want to clean the interior of your RV, including perishable items. Giving your RV a deep clean will help it remain as good as new, even after storing your RV long-term.

Winterize Your Motorhome

Roughly a month before winter, you'll want to consider winterizing your RV. To winterize your vehicle, you should perform a deep clean and defrost your appliances. Drain tanks and pipes, blow out water lines, and remove and store your RV battery. Adding RV antifreeze and securing your RV's wheels with blocks helps your vehicle withstand harsh winter conditions and stay in place through short-term or long-term winter RV storage.

Seal Your Motorhome

Sealing off your motorhome will help prevent rodents and other pests from getting in your space, especially if you plan to use outdoor RV storage. Lock and seal any windows or roof vents, and close off your exhaust pipes. Inspect your roof for any leaks and fix them before storage. And use a high-quality breathable cover to ward off unwanted visitors and protect your vehicle from the elements.


Why do people rent vehicle storage for RVs? There are several reasons why someone might need to store a camper, motorhome, or trailer including lack of space at home, neighborhood covenants, and more convenient traveling. Learn more about these RV storage and parking needs below.

Get More Space at Home

In general, recreational vehicles can measure anywhere between eight and 40 feet in length, eight to 15 feet in height, and seven to ten feet in width. Unfortunately, this often means storing or parking an RV at home is out of the question. Your RV may be too tall to keep in a garage or too wide/long to keep in your driveway. Even if your RV does fit in your garage or driveway, it can get in the way of vehicles you use more frequently. Renting self storage locally can help you get more space in a garage or driveway.

Avoid HOA Fees

Many residential areas have neighborhood covenants established by homeowners' associations that determine what can and cannot be kept outside of a home for extended periods of time. A common rule among neighborhoods is that homeowners aren't allowed to keep RVs in driveways or on the street. If you can't store a recreational vehicle in a garage and want to avoid costly HOA fees, vehicle storage is a good alternative.

Use Storage for Easier Travel

If you only use your RV or boat for road trips or weekend getaways, it might be worthwhile to find a convenient self storage facility near the highway, interstate, or your favorite outdoor recreation spots. That way, you can avoid hauling your camper back and forth or parking it at home. Some storage locations even offer extended access hours for extra convenience while storing on the go.
