Storing the Escape

People have shown their storage situations from time to time either at home or elsewhere. Feel free to show them again here. Many have a nice set-up. Some have even built something.

Here is ours. We had quite a time getting in the first time. We have looked at different ways to come in and concluded that we have to back into the site. Maybe we finally have it. Almost!

You can see the Casita. There is also an Airstream and an Avion down the line.

Hi: float5... I'm surprised your HOA would let you build such a structure!!! Here's a pic or two of what we use. Alf

My parking pad looks like a mosaic of concrete as I have had to add on width and length wise over the past 10 years to accommodate the various trailers owned. Those of you who have seen it can attest to that.

That looks so cute! Very substantial though. Really covers it, too. And you can work at the roof.

Yeah, some building we have! Guess you are no longer in that great big covered structure that you used to have.

Chris and Patricia, someone has to say it. Do you have the anti-gravity rotation option on that Escape?

Hi: float5... My wife's brother still has it, but because we travel south in winter, we're leaving our space for paying customers who can't!!! Alf

None of those open-sided structures would work here- too windy- but last year mine stayed in a friend's open bay of a barn. This year he has chickens there! So it may go into a closed bay if we can make room. Springtime I'm having the garage door replaced with taller carriage doors and after that it will live in the garage. (I wonder if he has room for all my garage junk in his barn?)

Normally it comes as rain, but this was last January and we had the worst snow for about a zillion years.

I was hoping that someone would fix the rotation and eventually they did. Not sure why the website does that and its way beyond my pay grade to fix it.

Chris & Patricia, If you are using an Apple product to take your photos, and you think you might post the photo on this forum someday, orient your Home Button on the right side before you take the picture. I think it’s only necessary for Apple products, but it works

Steve, someone else suggested that route. However, I don't always remember and to be honest, the photo is framed much better in a "portrait" orientation rather than landscape. It would be better if the website got fixed so it didn't do it!! But thanks for your response.
