Importance of RV Covers

After the initial investment of your RV, you will find storage an important factor in extending the life of your recreational vehicle. You may realize that your RV sits unused for extended periods. It will be particularly important that the storage is thought through so your RV can stay running smoothly for as long as possible.

For example, winter snow can melt into puddles in gaps on the roof of your RV, freezing again and breaking the sealants on your RV roof, causing leaks. Similarly, direct sunlight has been known to breakdown these sealants over time creating areas for water to seep into the RV’s roof.

There are many options to consider when looking into storing your RV - self-storage, covered storage, indoor or outdoor storage, and more. Many RV owners choose to go with a pricey facility that they pay a monthly rental fee to. However, there are some key advantages to storing your RV on your own property.

Storing Your RV on Your Property

This is an appealing solution because RV owners don’t pay rent on storage. Assuming your local Homeowners Association (HOA) has no objections and space will not be an issue, storing your RV on your own property has many advantages.

Non-Enclosed RV Covers

Carport1’s guaranteed metal buildings are low maintenance structures and quick to build. The site for metal building construction must be level, and it is recommended that RV’s be stored on level ground to prevent damage on the axles and other components.

Importance of Boat Covers

If you own a boat, you might be happy on the water a few times in the summer or every day that you can! Either way, weather will be a factor and make it necessary to store your boat periodically throughout the year.

There are many different options out there for boat storage - in-water, self-storage facility, parking storage, covered boat storage, outdoor or indoor boat storage. Your best solution depends on budget, location, and needs.

Keeping your boat uncovered in the water exposes it to wind, rain, and UV damage throughout the year, and causes it to wear down faster. Storing it on your property uncovered can have the same effect and also make it difficult to secure from theft. Carport1’s world-class metal buildings will keep your boat protected and in good condition while meeting your budget.

Storing Your Boat on Your Property

A popular solution to boat storage involves storing your boat on its trailer on your property! Assuming your local Homeowners Association (HOA) has no objections and space will not be an issue, storing your boat on your own property has many advantages.

  1. You don’t have to pay storage fees

  1. Avoid storage fees
