All above advice is what I would suggest. In addition, check with local ordinances or HMO rules (if applicable) to find out any restrictions/rules on RV parking at home. Some towns require RV's and boats if stored at home meet existing setbacks, others don't care. Some communities require them to be stored on concrete, asphalt, brick driveways, etc. while some don't allow it at all. Just a phone call usually needed if you haven't already done that. Enjoy RVing!

This is why I don’t have an HMO or live in an HOA. Too many rules [emoticon].

Don't know where you are parking it or if HOA allow but if you can, ther is no better place to park it than at home. Easy to load for a trip, and if the power goes out you still have a place to cook dinner if needed. If you are able to park at home, I would set up an RV metal carport and call it good. Run some power to it and run a small heater in the winter to keep it dry and smelling good.


Welcome to my home, that door you just broke down was there for your protection not mine.

If this will be the normal situation install a dedicated circuit for the trailer. Use a surge protector at the recepticle box and then plug into the surge protector.
I have mine in my yard and use it all the time, refrigerator is stocked with refreshments and I can turn on the A/C if I want to and even watch TV....sometimes the bed calls me in for a nap.

The ability to keep your rig at home is you are able to do your maintenance at your lesiure and its a lot more secure than a storage lot.

Are you parking on pavement? If you are on dirt I would put something under the tires such as gravel, treated wood or concrete blocks.
