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.
So it's the sides of the structure that are too low? hadn't thought of that.

Had the same problem with my canopy, plus wind concerns. My solution raised sides just enough...

Store my trailer at a regional park. Only cons is that the park is 15 miles away and the storage is uncovered. However, the pros are many. It is relatively inexpensive for northern VA ($48/mon) and it patrolled by park rangers. Also, the park is open year round so I can camp at anytime and there is a dump facility and fresh water fill.

Would LOVE to be able to store her at home.

Jim, is that your old work truck that was stolen? Amazing detail available on Google.

Yeah, that is the one. They need to take another shot with the new one in it.

Love the way they blur the license plate but leave the phone number.

We left our baby (17b) at its' nursery (Escape Trailer Industries, Chilliwack).

Pros: inexpensive storage, ETI winterized her, fixed the little latch on the fridge for us = reasonable cost. ETI staff available for any other servicing we may wish. Safe gated compound. Best of all our baby has lots of other Escape Eggs to talk to and isn't lonely.

Cons: we have visiting hours (our access to her is during ETI hours); we have to drive an hour or so to get her. Prep for trips is a pain (although, ETI will turn on the fridge for us prior to a trip). Coming back from a trip to drop off has to be within ETI hours.

-------

We are in the midst of relocating to Maple Ridge, BC (moving into a shared living arrangement with our daughter/son-in-law). The new residence will have room on the driveway for the 17b to park for at least a few days as we prepare/clean her before and after trips (and polish her) but probably not enough driveway space for long term parking (plus she will miss all her other Escape friends).

As I drive around Maple Ridge I see acreages where several trailers seem to be parked for storage. I'm considering looking into this as an option (going for private storage but have concerns about her being stolen). Secure storage in Maple Ridge area at a secure, gated 24-hour acesss facility seems to cost about 120.00 month. Another option to be considered.

I'm wondering if other forum members have made private arrangements with some owner renting out space for trailer storage on their land.

We have no place at our house to park either of our trailers. No room, not even for trip prep. However, we found a storage unit about 1/4 mile away where we have two units rented. Two trailers, two units, go figure.


Not inexpensive ($294/mo for both) but enclosed and, not being visible, secure. Even better, they are heated and have electric. So the batteries stay changed and we don't have to winterize. Ready to go at the drop of a hat.

Since we're talking about pampered Escapes in buildings... just for amusement, try a Google search for "garage condo". After you win a lottery, you can have a really nice place to store the trailer and work on the next modification.

Maybe yes, maybe no.
I have a friend with some land behind and around his home. He built a 20'x40' garage big enough for his trailer, tools, shop, etc. But...
It's now filled with extended family' stuff. His trailer..(wait for it)......
Outside!
