If you have an RV that you purchased for summer camping trips, you want to take care of it so it will last as long as possible. Since an RV is costly, it makes sense to protect it from extreme weather, animals, and other potential sources of damage. Most garages aren’t large enough to accommodate an RV, but a portable shelter can be the perfect solution.

Why It’s Important to Store Your RV Indoors

Leaving your RV outside, exposed to the elements, can be a costly mistake. Moisture from rain and snow can cause rust, and water can damage electrical components. If a strong wind gust blows a tree branch or another object toward the RV or onto its roof, it can tear or dent the exterior, which may require expensive repairs. The sun’s rays can cause the paint to fade and peel.

Animals can also cause damage. Small animals, such as mice, may seek warmth and shelter in an RV. If they get under the hood, they can chew through wires. The vehicle may fail to start when you want to use it, and you may have to postpone a trip and pay for unexpected repairs. 

Why a Portable Garage Is a Good Storage Solution for Your RV

Portable storage buildings come in a wide range of sizes and styles. They’re designed to accommodate all sorts of vehicles, including ones that can’t fit in a typical garage. You can find a portable storage building that is high enough to fit your RV with plenty of clearance to spare. You can choose a shelter with wide doors on either end so you will be able to pull the RV through, rather than have to back it in or out. 

Portable garages come with several roof designs, including peak, round, and barn varieties. If your region gets snow in the winter, a sloped roof can allow snow to slide off. That can prevent several inches of snow from accumulating, weighing down the roof, and causing it to sag or collapse.
