    Store RV close to home or not

    Will be finishing up a 2 month tour in Texas and heading home to Minnesota in November. Then returning to Texas in Late January. Looking for pros and cons to leaving the rig so far from home. We do plan to fully winterize and prep for long term storage either way. TIA

    Every situation is different but I really like the fact that ours is in our backyard. I like the fact that I can keep a close eye on it.

    It would be certainly tempting to leave it provided you could find a secure storage facility. It looks like Buckhorn Lake Resort outside of Kerrville does just that for folks.

    IF I were in that situation, I would leave it without a doubt.

    We also live in MN. I’d love to find a secure spot south of here to store it. It would be great to drive out of here in January and pick it up for a trip through the southwest or even to Florida. I’m not sure I want to hitch it up and pull it over snow covered roads up here.

    We left in -10 degree weather on our maiden voyage and made it to Austin TX right before their big winter storm. Needless to say we learned A LOT about our 5th wheel in that first week. That’s precisely why we are thinking about storing down there so we don’t go through that again!

    From the title I was thinking you meant maybe 20 miles away vs 2 miles away. If I were storing far from home I would want it fully enclosed. Just peace of mind for storms and theft. If I lived in the north I could definitely see leaving it in the south. But I would also leave the tow vehicle and make it close to an airport. By the way I never winterized my rig last winter while storing in Houston.

    I think I'd leave it if you can find a place you are happy with to store it.

    Just don't pull the stunt my folks' friends did. They left theirs in Georgia and drove home to Louisville to take care of the house and attend a grandchild's graduation. Only when they were backing up to the trailer in Georgia to pick it up for a trip through Texas and then north did they realize they'd left home without their hitch.

    OMG now that's a real bummer.
