Storage advice esp. in Seattle area

HI everyone! We just bought the used 2008 17B Reace just posted. Went to BC and, WOOHOO, it's ours. They are SO great up there. Now, we need to find storage in Seattle. Any advice on a good site? We're thinking areas outside, probably south, because in-city would be too expensive. Should we get covered? Any advice would be welcome! Glad to be part of the community! Any advice on newby trailer owners would be welcome too. We're handy but new to owning a trailer. We think we bought the best one...first. Thanks. Jan and Peter; West Seattle, Wa.

If you're able to get a covered storage locker then by all means go for it. In any event, make sure you have your trailer locked down with hub locks (Denver Boot?) and tongue locks.

Hi Jan and Peter,
congratulations! I live in West Seattle, currently have a tent trailer and will be visiting Escape in late April or early May to consider purchasing an Escape trailer. There are two outdoor RV storage yards in West Seattle, both located at the SE corner of Fauntleroy Way and SW Alaska St. (same corner as Les Schwab). I see some nice rigs parked in these lots. There is another boat/Rv storage yard in White Center, located on 16th Ave SW near SW 114th street. Some of the boats and RV's parked at this lot look like they haven't left the lot in 10 years. The Stor-More storage building Located at SW Avalon Way and SW Yancy St. (near the steel mill) has a few outdoor spaces. Good luck with your search.
Best regards,
Leo

Great info on West Seattle area, Leo. Good luck in your look-see at the Escapes. We did lots of research and decided it was the only way to go; and once you meet the team in BC, I think you'll feel like we did that it's great doing business with such fine human beings! Thanks again. J and P

Oh by all means, as J Mac said, if you can get covered parking.. do it. It will extend wax jobs and save you hours of work each Spring scrubbing all the green/red/black mold off the trailer. You do live in the Pacific NorthWET. A carport is good, the trailer just gets dusty!
