Put Scamp in Storage or Just Cover?

We have a deal here where you can bring out your camper, boat etc to the fairgrounds by tomorrow (Mon) & for $125 they put it in one of their buildings. You do not see it again until after winter. My question is... is this the way to go or would it be ok to put the Scamp in the back yard & support the frame & put a bunch of fabric softener in it & call it good?

I would go for indoor storage over the cover. When can you get it out in the spring? I am in Grand Forks looking for indoor storage, are you near here?

I'm lucky! The most snow we get is about 2 inches maybe twice during the winter
If I lived in Minnesota I would definitely take advantage of indoor storage.

I used to do that at our fairgrounds here for a few years until they changed some buildings and stopped the programme. I always had the trailer back before camping season started in the spring and it was nice to have full use of the driveway and get access to the garage for a car during the bad weather season.

Yes... you are right. I think I will take it to the storage.

Tezha... the storage is at the fair grounds in West Fargo. I am pretty sure you need to have there at a certain time today though.

Here's the link.... maybe I will see you there!

What are you guys considering for mouse control? My husband wanted to pull the trailer back to Iowa but I said I would rather have it with us so I could check the inside. Had a pop-up that got mouse damaged real bad.

The people at the fairgrounds said they didn't have too much of a mouse problem. They put out traps & I spread a bunch of fabric softener sheets around the inside. I cracked the roof vent a 1/2 inch so I hope they can't get in there by chewing through the screen. GO VIKINGS !!!!

we store indoors and it is AWESOME. They prep the trailer for us before we pick up and we can basically do it around the clock. We also get discounts on services they offer and their program is based on trailer length. They measured our scamp at 11'. I can barely find a cheaper place for outdoor storage and this is so much better for the trailer and us....I highly recommend indoor storage if you can get it....

Just found a place in Park River, ND that has in door storage. Checking on a price, but I would love indoor storage. Does anyone have any places in the Grand Forks, ND area they have used?
