Just where in Mission Viejo is/was this lot?

When we lived in Komifornia I was lucky enough to park the coach on the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station. Back then the cost was 40 bucks a month

Wasn't that long ago, when the old El Toro Marine base(where tons of RVs were stored)was sold to developers and all the RV owners had to scramble for new storage places. Being in Orange County, it was just a matter of time before that happened.
Camp Pendleton is constantly fighting off development.


Yep

See this Article (El Toro Closing)


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

California doesn't want RVs or anything that burns gas (or diesel). It's going to be tough to get anyone outside of the RV world to care about the loss of storage spots. I'd be surprised if RVs are even legal in that state in 10 years.


Well ... if good old CA "outlaws" fossil fuel powered/towed RVs but allows electric powered/towed RVs ... then CA better get it's grid-power-outages-due-to-fires problems solved beforehand!!

Electric powered vehicles (whether it be SUV/PU/RV/motorcycles/big rigs) is gonna need reliable and high capacity grid power day after day to keep the vehicle lithiums full, and of course this will apply all over the U.S. in order for EVs to reach prime time nationally.

EVs only appear to be a somewhat workable solution at this time because there are so few of them.

I stored my toyhauler there, they raised the rent every year and then gave less than 60 days notice.

$400 a month to store an RV..... amazing.

Our very well secured lot just went up to $60 a month.

Yes it is hard to imagine, but property in the Orange County area (if you can actually find acreage) is 4 mill per acre. Even $400 a month wont cover it.

I would not own a RV if I had to store it outside in the sun. In southern CA, I also pay $400 a month for a secured, gated, camera'd, storage garage with 30 amp service (about 100 garages at the facility).

Safe travels,
