Storing your Trailer, RV, or Camper in Northfield Center, Northfield Village, and Maple Heights
Are you one of those people who loves to travel and go camping? Have you made a big commitment and got yourself an RV, camper, or maybe a trailer? Are you now asking, “What is the best trailer storage near me?” If you answered yes to these questions, we are going to help you find the right trailer storage space you are looking for.
Storing a trailer, RV or camper is not the easiest thing in the world. They do tend to take up quite a bit of space. But don’t worry! You will be happy to know that there are many options out there, and we are about to have a look at them.
Storage Space Options For Trailers
Of course, the nearest storage space would be at your place of residence. Although this might be the closest place to store your trailer, it might not be the most practical.
- The Driveway – If you are using your driveway, you know well that it can take up a lot of space, especially if you live in a suburban area. You could have it widened, but that will cost, and it still might not give you all the space you require.
Also, the HOA (Homeowners Association) can have rules preventing you from parking in the driveway or on the street. Not being aware of the HOA regulations can lead to fines and/or your trailer being towed away. So, make sure you know what to do so you don’t break any rules and regulations.
- The Garage – You might be lucky enough to have a double car garage with enough space to store your trailer, but it will take up most of the space. Again you could have the garage renovated to accommodate your trailer or camper but the cost would be high.
- The Backyard – Some people like to put their precious trailers and campers in the backyard, but this can cause issues on a couple of fronts. First, if you don’t have a parking pad, the ground may be too soft to properly support your trailer, and building a parking pad can be costly.
BEFORE you park your RV, camper or trailer or decide to build a parking pad, make sure to check with the HOA as there can be by-laws that prohibit storing this type of vehicle in the yard.
Besides the reasons mentioned above, there are other factors to think about when storing your trailer, RV or camper at your place of residence. And if you have spent even one winter in Ohio, you will know that it is not just cold, but it is also very humid. In fact, the month that traditionally receives the highest humidity levels is December.
So unless you have a garage that is not only big enough for your trailer but is heated or climate-controlled you run the risk of humidity damage, mold, or just that getting the nasty musty smell. And that is just the effects on the inside. If the trailer is parked outside and is exposed to the elements, it can suffer weather damage from the rain, sun, snow, or possibly hail.
Another factor to think about when storing your trailer at your place of residence is vandalism. This could be a possible issue when keeping your trailer in your yard or driveway. You may have motion sensor lights and other security measures, but unfortunately, stuff can happen when you are not around.
Trailer Storage Facility Near You
If you live in the Northfield Center, Northfield Village or Maple Heights areas, there are perfect storage facilities near you. Redi Storage makes it pretty easy and convenient for storing vehicles, including trailers, RVs and campers.
Deciding to go with an enclosed unit can give you peace of mind knowing that everything is safe and secure.

Of course your trailer is protected from all the elements year-round if you need it. And Redi Storage provides 24 hours security as well, so you know no one is going to mess with your items.
There are a few things you do have to know about storing vehicles of any type though. Things like:
- They must be in running order in case they must be moved
- They must have registration and the title has to match the renter
- Must have a title
- You should have insurance for it
If you are thinking “Well I would like to have access to my trailer anytime” don’t worry you do. Redi Storage facilities give you 24-hour access and unlike other commercial storage places, they are closer to the center of town. This means you are probably only a 15-minute drive away.
While it is true that you have to pay for storage facilities, it is still less expensive than paying for a new parking pad, garage or driveway (and possibly fines). Not to mention possible repairs due to the Ohio winters. It is certainly worth the stress-free feeling knowing your trailer is tucked away safe and secure, and ready for a new travel season.
