Storing for a couple of days on the road

We have extensive experience trying to find places to store our Scamp and TV for short periods and long term. This is the most frustrating aspect of traveling with a trailer.

I just have one other suggestion in addition to the above advice. Read your insurance policies to see if theft and vandalism is covered and how claims are calculated. Just last month our TV was broken into and we lost $7,000 worth of camping and backpacking equipment. State Farm is sending us less than $2,000 compensation. I was advised to read my policy. Indeed.

BTY, the truck and trailer were in a storage yard with a card lock and video surveillance. They just shrugged their shoulders and said they werenít negligent.

Temporary parking

Do you belong to either the Elks or American Legion? I belong to both, and most lodges and posts are in decent neighborhoods. For a small gratuity, Iíve found that they are very accommodating and safe for a two or three-day parking option.

Iíve asked this question around on several groups. The best advice Iíve found is that the further from civilization and other people you are, the safer you are. Iím leery of storage facilities as Iíve heard of 3 trailers stolen and all were from storage facilities.

Yes storage facilities are the worst place you could leave a trailer. Parking lots are also. Campgrounds that are private are the best or a friends place if not on the street.
