We have, 4 miles from home, a storage condominium that we purchased about 10 years ago. It's a very good concept, the units are 16 x 42, with a 12 x 14 overhead door, heated. The complex has a dump station and a wash bay, and rest rooms,it is gated and has the local sherrif department patrol during the night, nothing is allowed to be parked outside overnight. They run around $28,000.00 and the yearly maintenance fees are $660.00 which includes electric and the wash bay water and heat. The units themselves are heated with gas and each unit is individually metered. property taxes $340.00 and inusrance $120.00. Not only does it hold a decent size MH, there is still plenty of side room for storage.

Wow, I wish I could find that in CT. I was looking for something similar for the winters (we leave the RV in the backyard during the summer) and the only thing I found was a 13' x 45' for $65K with similar maintenance and tax fees. Since we are planning a move within the next 6 years, I guess I'll save the RV garage for the next house.
Depends on a whole lot of things...covered/uncovered, sides covered/uncovered, power/no power, individually locked stall or not and one of the biggest is the geographical area where you are. Big city equals big bucks. I'm in a smaller town and pay $150/mo, 20 x 50 fully enclosed garage with power.
Gated, individual pass code entrance to outside storage - gate turned off from 10 PM - 6AM, in Brighton Mi, $46 / mo
I am finding very similar pricing here in Richmond. 10% less if I pay 6 mo. in advance. Gate pass code operates 6AM to Midnight 7 days only 5 miles from home. I will do a search on the place and see if anything comes up about them as far as a review.Nice place with paved parking and seems like good security.

If you're close to farms, you might ask around or check Craigslist for someone willing to rent you some unused space in a pole barn for a reasonable sum. It can be a lot cheaper than renting from a place that makes all of its money just from renting storage space.

Well, we sure fel for you. We also have had a Covered RV Port at every home we have ever bought. We also made darn sure we could keep our RV's on are own property before we ever put any money down on any home.
For us anyways, we would never buy a home, if we could not keep our RV's at home. For us ayways, it just doesn't make sense to have to make payments to keep your RV at any storage places. You would never, ever be done paying for it.
We have also paid cash for every RV we have ever owned. Never would we even own an RV, if we had to pay to keep it stored off property. For us anyways, its so much easier to buy a home where you can keep your RV at home and not have the extra bills for off property storage.
No never ending bills for us anyways. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill
I've read this twice, and I can't find anything in this post that's at all relevant to the OP's question. They obviously made a choice of homes based on their own priorities. Onsite storage of their RV was something they decided to compromise on.
