This is a problem for me, in a small way. I can store my moho, but i have to travel beyond Drogheda, as far as Termonfeckin, for secure indoor parking. That means dragging Sue along in the car, as their is no rail station for me to get a train back home.
With this in mind, I was wondering if there are many people in the same boat.? If so, I think i have a solution.
I can get indoor parking in Rush for 600 euro per month, but the lock up will hold 10 or 12 vans. Its secure, a farmers yard, and within a 10 minute walk to Rush town.
Would anyone be interested in this proposition?

We don't do winter storage.
The mh does be parked up at home with the front wheels driven up onto the leveling ramps.
This means that the roof is sloped to the back and no water lies on it.
It also allows us to go on trips throughout the winter months at short notice.

@Ally no, it dosent.
@Thorn123. We have ours parked on the drive, with 2 other cars. Now i know your first thought is "oh, that drive must go all the way to the manor" . But no, i adapted the small drive to allow me drive the moho in off the road. And while agree with you about using it in the winter, that dosent happen every month. So the practical thing for me is to store it indoors.

Something to check out on the insurance side.
Once you leave the mh into someone else care, your mh insurance policy doesn't cover the mh for theft, fire, etc.
The owner of the storage unit is now responsible for your possible lost.

Indoor winter storage is a must for me running on a Transit chassis. I use a place in co Wicklow and that usually means taking a long lunch and leaving my car down there for a weekend. I would like somewhere closer but round trip from home to Rush would only be marginally shorter than a round trip from work to the current place. I could be persuaded to come and take a look for next winter if it's looking like a runner.

Amen to that!

Rob, crank the heating up and keep the adventures going. Shorter days alright but it's fantastic because you can have all the spots to yourself! :)

I keep mine on the driveway so over winter keep it drained of water etc but can quickly fill up for a day out or whatever should we find the time or motivation to head away. I dont think I could cope with not having eyes on it if it was at a secure premises.

If you had the space to built a shelter of some kind it would soon pay itself back over storage fees and you would have it at home. I used to keep mine up on blocks to let the rain run off but had a shelter built recently. I raised the existing sliding gate to act as a door to protect it from the prevailing wind.

The photo editor has flipped my photo 90 degrees again even though I tried to fool it by rotating it 90 degrees the other way before uploading it.

We were fortunate enough to have room to build a storage open at front off the side of the workshop down the back, doesn’t sound too badly priced if you get enough vans to share but I do feel your pain as we have access all the time to just go for a spin in winter. Hope you work something out

As we live out in the country down a lane, I have plenty of room at the side of the garage to park the motorhome. But unless the weather is very severe we head away somewhere . Never drain the water, I set the alde heating at 5° ,so anything below that it kicks in.

Very similar to ourselves,we do not need much of an excuse until we are down the road.
