Store it at home on the far side of the house, soft covered. We're still allowed to do what we wish with our property in this neighborhood, about 1/3 of the folks have boats or campers so it's no big deal. Of the campers I'm the only one that has any cover of any sort. Thinking about something like Donna has but I'm undecided. On the 5.0 TA it takes about a half hour to cover and secure, on my last 20' bumper pull trailer it took about 15 minutes.

Donna, how tall do you need the roof for the fifth wheel?

If I could eeek out a couple of more inches and backed straight in... Ten Forward would fit. The peak on the carport is 12', but the sides are only 8'. Trust me I've measured a bazllion times and crossed my fingers, but it's just a tad too short. I've got a company willing to raise it 2' in the Spring. Just can't do it now. When the legs are disconnected it's liable to sail to the neighbors yard, due to the winds here in east county. I measured Ten Forward and it's 9'8" at the highest point.

I know how fortunate I am to be able to store at home. I live in a cul-de-sac on a 1/4 acre lot and the carport is behind the gutter line.. about six feet back. People can't even see the carport when driving into the cul-de-sac. We have HOAs (and I love them!), so no driveway storage allowed.

Not really, the space is shared with a John Deere tractor w/front loader. Use it to move the trailer around, too.

Mine is currently in a storage yard for $300 for the year. My intention is to fix up a space next to my garage. The neighborhood bylaws state that it can't be visible from the road, and due to hills, I should be "within the rules." We have one neighbor with a Roadtec in the driveway, but the neighbors think it's just a "big van."

A clip right off of Google Street View. Guess where my summer storage is.

Indoor storage is so nice. I was fortunate to find an empty industrial building (I do live in the Rust Belt) that had been converted to boat and RV storage, cost is $320 per year. It pays to ask around as to who might have space, sometimes looking a bit further afar will result in substantial savings. I am about 12 miles from storage.

Just a cover on mine, but parked up beside the house under a thick blanket of snow. No more camping for me until spring.
