Look for a Kelowna storage facility that offers these five amenities and more.

As camping season begins to wind down, it's time to start making plans for RV storage. Like most Okanagan residents, you may not have the space to store your rig at home. If that's the case, you're probably on the lookout for a safe and affordable location to park your RV during the winter season.


Before you commit to a storage stall, make sure the location of your choice features these five fantastic RV amenities.


1. Roomy Stalls

This amenity is probably the most important one to look for. When spring rolls around, and you're itching to head out into the backcountry, you'll want to be able to grab your RV and roll out quickly. If your rig is jammed into an over-packed yard, you may have to wait for an attendant to un-jam it.

Do yourself a big favour and choose a local storage facility that offers wide stalls with big lanes for quick access and easy turning and manoeuvring.


2. Impressive Security Measures

An RV is a big investment. Protect that investment by selecting a storage facility with above-average security measures in place. Some key features to ask about include:

  • A fully fenced yard
  • Razor wire fencing
  • Passcode entry and exit
  • On-site residence
  • Security cameras
  • Frequent patrols
  • After-hours motion detectors


3. On-Site Sani-Dump

Although this option may not seem like a big deal, it really is. If you use your RV a lot throughout the year, an on-site sani-dump can save you hours and hours of time. Imagine this: You've spent the day dismantling your campsite, loading up the RV, wrangling up the kids, and driving back to Kelowna. Instead of lining up with all the other returning campers at a local sani-dump station, you can just head back to your RV storage facility, dump, and park. It really couldn't be simpler.


4. Fresh Water Station

Similar to an on-site sani-dump, a water station is just as convenient. There's no need to drive around looking for a place to fill the water tank. You can just fill up the fresh water tank before you even leave the compound. This amenity is worth looking for.


5. Affordable RV Storage Rates

Now, it goes without saying that affordability is one of the things most campers look for when searching out a storage facility. It's important to call around and get a couple of storage quotes. However, don't forget to weigh the quotes against the benefits and amenities provided. Sometimes it's worth spending a few extra dollars to benefit from additional amenities.
