Hi guys and thanks for you input. I especially agree from the standpoint of staying in the coach. But it’s nice to know the option is there for short term storage as needed. I didn’t know that was an option. Thank you one and all.

Worst case, find a CG close by and just book a site. Leave the MH on the site while you are visiting family, assuming we're not talking a month-long visit. This way the MH is hooked up and accessible, so if you need to pop back if you forgot something, it's easy.

We take several trips away from our home ( MH) every year . They last 1-2 weeks at a time . We just leave at the RV park. Most storage places want a Month commitment.
We’ve never had a problem and just let the office know we are going to be gone. we have learned never stay , esp with relatives that long if we are visiting with the motorhome and not flying in . I agree most think they are doing you a big favor by having you stay with them , not living in that cramped RV! Actually it’s a pain as it’s not my bed , not my coffee and not my privacy. After the first few times we learned fast to politely decline, find a nearby park and live our normal lives visiting them. Better for all and less stress on them and you.

I am faced with spending 3 to 4 weeks of August at the DW's best friends second home on the Oregon Coast, they will be gone the entire time and the CC&Rs are very restrictive and their parking area would require a lot of 2 x 10's to make leveling ramps so it's off to a storage area at a local campground. I am not looking forward to the hassle of transferring stuff but I just calculated a 21 day stay into direct cost for campsites, I guess the uninterrupted views from their home and free utilities are more than worth it price.

If they were going to be there, I would still do it but it would require a lot of Valium just to keep the DW happy. I like my bed, bath and usual routine, that's one reason we have our rig.

It probably goes without saying, but check with the campground first. Some, mostly public campgrounds I think, require you to not be away from the site for more than e.g. 24 hours at a stretch. I assume that's precisely because they want it to be a campground, not a storage lot.

I found that using Neighbor a peer to peer storage marketplace works really well while I'm traveling. It is kinda like Airbnb bur for rv storage.

Interesting, I had not heard of that before.

If you book a site - say for a month in a commercially owned and not government owned rv park, they don't care if you are there or not. They do want to be notified if you will be away. Many people have left their rv's right on their site and gone for a cruise, home for Christmas etc. Now forestry parks, corp of engineer parks , some state and county parks usually have the rule about being gone more than 24 hours. Many campgrounds also have storage areas within their parks that you can store your rv with no hookups and pay a small fee per day.
