We included trailer length, height and width and in one week he had 3 possibilities. I left it up to him to check with his insurance regarding any coverage issues during storage.

Welcome Susan, I hope the spring come early so you can enjoy your new trailer.

Sid, that was a great idea!! We have a rule across our whole municipality that says we can not have trailers and boats etc in our front driveways during the winter months. There is an elderly couple in the neighbourhood who has a nice large flat extra parking spot beside there home that is legal for leaving a trailer/boat in year round & they have one of those portable garages over the spot. Neither of the home owners drive these days. Now every year someone in the neighbourhood rents that spot from them for a trailer for $50 a month which is a real deal in these parts.

Susan-

I do not know how much room you have to get in from your Minneapolis alley. We were able to make it work. Yes, it was embarrassing the first time I tried to back in around the corner of the garage, but it gets easier every time. The plus is having the trailer at home to use as a party house or to work on when you please.

For security, I put in a 6' high chain link gate that is 10' wide and ties in with the fence that was already on the property. I laid down multiple 4'X4' 3/4" treated ground contact plywood panels as a base on which to back up–backing into a mud pit is no fun. A concrete or asphalt pad was more than I could afford.

Here is a photo to show it can be possible to keep your trailer at home.
