Leaving your RV outside your home, or in an old wooden storage hut or shed, means that it is at the mercy of the elements. Wind, rain, and even the sun can cause serious and lasting damage to any vehicle; but not all properties have the luxury of a permanent garage or car store built on the side.
Covered RV storage can provide you with a safe, secure, and durable location to keep your recreational vehicle. A stainless steel building not only protects from the weather, but it offers durability and strength. Security is also maximized, because the doors can be securely locked, making it virtually impregnable.
Covered RV Storage Offers Protection
Covered RV storage can prevent physical damage from occurring to your vehicle. Debris and other items are prevented from falling on or hitting the RV, while it is being stored, and you can also protect from passing vehicles, children kicking balls, and more.
Indoor Storage Offers Security
With a fully enclosed, indoor covered RV storage building, you enjoy greater security. Prefabricated stainless steel is very difficult to damage or break, and once the door is locked on your storage building this means that you have a highly secure location for your RV; especially useful if you won’t be using it for some time.
Stainless Steel Offers Strength and Durability
Materials like wood can offer moderate protection and security, but over time the material will degrade, and it will require regular maintenance to ensure that it looks good and offers the protection that is required. Stainless steel covered RV storage, on the other hand, is easier to maintain, it will last longer, offers greater security, and is longer lasting. Steel is also fire resistant, which only adds to further improve the safety and security of the building.
Covered RV Storage Offers Flexibility
Prefabricated and customized stainless steel buildings come in many sizes, shapes, and dimensions. Even if space is limited, this means that you can enjoy the benefits of stainless steel protection from your covered RV storage. If you have more room, then it means that you can use your new covered RV storage building for additional storage, so that you can keep your camping equipment, tools, and other items with your RV.
The fact that stainless steel buildings can be customized also means that they can be created to meet your aesthetic needs. The steel can be finished in a range of different colors, enabling you to ensure that it matches the exterior of the property, and that it doesn’t stand out and create an eyesore outside your home.
FAQs on Steel Buildings for RV Storage
The following are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding the use of steel buildings for RV storage:
- How Big of a Building Do I Need? The size of the steel building you’ll need for RV storage depends on a few factors, such as the number and size of RVs you need to store, as well as any other personal belongings or equipment you want to keep in the building. It must also be tall enough to fit a roll-up door or garage door that is large enough for your RV to fit through. Finally, whatever height your roll-up door is, the eave height needs to be two additional feet taller to accommodate it.
- Do I Need Insulation? If you live in an area with very hot summers or cold winters, or if you’re planning to use the building as a workshop, insulation will help keep the temperature inside more comfortable. If the building will be used solely for storage, you may not need it.
- Should I Vent My RV Storage Structure? Adding vents is generally a good idea to help with air circulation, which will reduce condensation inside the building. If people are constantly coming in and out of the building, you may not need vents since there will be plenty of air circulation. However, if your building will be mostly sealed, then vents are a good idea. The vents will also help to remove exhaust fumes from the interior of the structure.
- Will My RV Storage Building Need a Foundation? Yes, your RV storage should have its own foundation. This will help to prevent any damage that could be caused by water or shifting soil.
