Trailer: Compact II 1974
Posts: 27
Hey all,

I live in San Francisco and our landlords are trying to subtly get us (wife, baby, and TRAILER!) out of the apartment so they can raise rent for the new tenants (we enjoy rent control). Anyways, one of the things they are doing is telling us suddenly, after 2 years, that our 13' trailer needs to be out of the garage. A parking spot in the the city costs around $120 a month (at least), and outside the city around $75.

I am wondering if either:

- Someone has an open space/ anything for it. I could pay a bit, but as a teacher I could never afford the aforementioned asking rates.

- Someone has a better idea ;-)

I have put a bunch of work into it. I even last month pulled out the ice box, shortened the closet in half, and built a bed for our 17-month old where it used to be. I would hate to have to get rid of it now...

p.s. I work in san rafael, and am hoping ideally for something in the n. bay but that may be overly optimistic. thanks for the help, all...

Wow... bummer.

I've got a few acres here that you're welcome to use but I'm thinking it's gonna be a bit of a hike for you. (Like about two thousand miles...)

When I was in Miami and couldn't keep the Pearl at home, I kept it down at the Coast Guard Station nearby. (I retired after twenty-three years in the Coast Guard Reserve.) If either of you are prior service, check out any military facility and ask for the morale officer. They're generally quite generous with available space.

Have you checked local campgrounds, esp. membership campgrounds? We bought into a membership campground, and their storage rate is $175 per year. Even after paying yearly dues to the membership, we are still dollars ahead, and camping is only $2 per night.
