LA parking or RV park, or hotel with good parking

Hello, I'm Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My husband Tom and I will be pulling our tiny 13 foot trillium trailer to San Filipe from Victoria BC. But our daughter is working and staying in downtown LA. We want to stay with her for 2 nights but can't figure out what to do with the trailer. The nearest RV park is 20 miles from downtown and I know LA traffic can be a nightmare so we don't want to stay that far away. We don't really need a RV park we just need a place where we can safely park the trailer so we can stay with my daughter. Street parking is non existent where she lives. All the nearby parking lots seem to only be operational during the work day and they are indoor car parks not an open lot that could accommodate a trailer. I'm hoping someone might have suggestions on where we could find a safe place to leave the trailer?
Thank you, Lorraine and Tom

Find a church parking lot and then make a donation to the padre.

Nice! And you'd get a look at the the new HC1 while you're there... Could be dangerous...

Late thought… whatever you end up doing, get a really good coupler lock if you're going to leave it parked somewhere, and maybe a cable through a wheel and around the axle as well. Small fiberglass trailers are hot targets for thieves, as Derek of Happier Camper can attest. I believe one of his rental units was stolen a while back. Never heard if it was ever recovered…

Yes Jon we actually had two trailers stollen in one night from our old lot and they have never been recovered .Our mistake was to have them on a highly visible corner in a high traffic area ,I think everyone in LA new they were there. We have since moved to a highly secured walled in compound that you would never see unless you were given directions there.we feel pretty confident all our trailers are safe there .In hindsight the devastating loss of those two trailers is what led us to building the HC1

Thanks so much for the info. I just looked at Happier Camper website and yes.... I could be tempted! I'll call Derek and see what I can
set up. I have a new door window that I would like to get installed. Do you think he could do that?

Good point. I have a cheap lock and should get a new one.

Loraine I think if your timing is right they could install your window no problem unless they are swamped at that time outfitting the HC1
