Enclosed, Covered, or Uncovered: What Type of Trailer Storage is Right For You?

Your tow trailer is one of your most valued assets.  Monetarily, it is an investment that you protect and maintain with care.  On a sentimental note, it is your home away from home – your refuge made for adventures, memories, and experiences that you will cherish for life.

Enclosed, Covered, or Uncovered: What Type of Trailer Storage is Right For You?

Your tow trailer is built tough – it’s made to withstand all types of inclement weather and the elements of nature.  Despite its heavy-duty exterior, however, it is not exempt from wear and tears over time.

Having your tow trailer stored securely is essential to its care and is just as important as the hands-on upkeep you provide for your rig throughout the year.  The list of trailer storage benefits is lengthy, but a few key points will help you decide whether or not a storage facility is right for you and which options will provide your trailer with the necessary protection to keep it safe while you’re on the road.

Enclosed Storage 

A fully enclosed storage area provides the highest level of protection for your off-season rig.  Not only will you have the benefit of full-weather coverage, the effort you put into the care and maintenance of your trailer will be extended, saving you time and money.  You will also appreciate the comfort of knowing an enclosed and locked unit creates an extra layer of security from unwanted pests and people.

Party Barn Boat and RV Storage offers fully enclosed 12′ x 30′ storage facilities that feature either 9.5′ clearance with concrete foundation or 8′ clearance with gravel foundation, depending on your preference and needs.

Covered Storage

Covered storage is generally desired for tow trailers that are too large for an enclosed unit.  Access to a covered storage area that is not fully enclosed can be faster and more efficient if you use your tow trailer more regularly, allowing you to quickly and easily dock and move your rig.  Heavy duty steel construction ensures that your trailer will be protected from hail, rain, and snow, and the option of electricity with a covered space will allow you to store your rig with little preparation for shorter periods of time.

Party Barn offers various lengths and clearance with our 12′ wide storage areas to suit the needs of your tow trailer.  Our covered parking is secure and easily accessible to clients and allows the option of spaces with and without electricity.

Uncovered Storage

Uncovered storage areas are ideal for those with multiple rigs they wish to rotate throughout the year. You have the advantage of easiest access to your tow trailer and plenty of room for winterizing and maintenance before storing your trailer for long periods of time.  Uncovered parking is a secure and safe way to store your tow trailer and provides ultimate accessibility to your rig.

Party Barn Boat and RV Storage offers 12′ x 30′ uncovered, secure parking for your tow trailer.  Our five-acre lot is located only three miles from both Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard, making our uncovered storage spaces ideal for those who use their tow trailers regularly.

Indoor or Enclosed Storage: What’s Right for You?

Here in Texas, we like to hold on to warm weather thoughts as long as we can. But now that winter has officially been ushered in, you might find yourself scrambling for where and how to store your RV during these chillier months. You know you don’t want it sitting in your driveway, but what are your options?

Indoor or Enclosed Storage: What's Right for You?

When you work with an RV storage facility like ours, you’ll find a variety of safe and affordable options as your biggest decision is choosing whether to choose outdoor or in enclosed storage. Here are some things to consider as you look at your options:

Outdoor Storage

This is the lowest priced option — and hence the most popular option — for storing RVs, trailers, and boats on a storage facility. You’ll enjoy state-of-the-art security and assurances that your RV will be kept safe and in good condition. You can choose either:

  • Open parking.  Here, your RV gets parked in a designated parking space in an uncovered area.
  • Covered parking.  Here, your RV gets parked in a covered space similar to a massive carport. This protects it from the worst of rain and UV damage, as well as the rare hail storm.

However, with both outdoor storage options, there are no walls to protect vehicles from all types of elemental damages. Even prolonged sun exposure can have negative impacts on your RV.

Enclosed Storage

While it is a bit more expensive, more people than ever are requesting enclosed storage facilities. That’s because here your recreational investment enjoys the highest amount of protection in a fully enclosed parking space. This adds an extra layer of security while climate-controlled facilities further protect sensitive electronic and piping components and four walls + a roof keeps out all of the elemental damage.

Tackling the Hardest Storage Problems

At Party Barn Boat & RV Storage, we free anglers up from having to worry about where to store their fall and winter gear. Our well-maintained acreage is close to the lake and is suitable for storing everything a Texas angler needs to continue fishing well into the New Year. For instance, night fishing for stripers and white bass in January is definitely a possibility. Just store those twister tail jigs in a winter tackle box and place it in our enclosed storage units. They’re large enough to hold the biggest tackle boxes on the market.

Jigging Your Way, Every Day or Night

Furthermore, our secure, enclosed storage facility is accessible 24/7. So with a few pushes of the keypad’s buttons, nighttime anglers can grab their jigs and be on their way. The same is true of boats, rods, and reels. The only thing we wouldn’t recommend placing in enclosed storage is live bait. After all, that has to stay fresh in order for the fish to bite. No worries, though, anglers! There are plenty of year-round bait shops nearby. For example, Leroy’s Bait & Tackle is just 5 minutes away from our enclosed storage facility and he’s typically got minnows. We all know how much the fish overwintering in Lake Lavon and Lake Ray Hubbard love minnows.

Tips For Choosing The Best RV Storage Facility

Are you looking for an RV storage facility? Aside from location, it’s important to consider all of your personal storage requirements. When storing your expensive investment don’t just settle. To find exactly what will work for your RV storage needs we’ve compiled a list to get you started.

Tips For Choosing The Best RV Storage Facility


Ask Around

Ask RV dealerships in your area for unbiased opinions on local RV storage facilities. As they’re in the RV business, they’re likely familiar with all RV storage companies in the area.

Ask trusted individuals who own an RV. Perhaps you have a friend or family member who also has an RV stored locally. Find out that person’s experience with the company they use.

Security is a Must

Find out what type of security each RV storage facility uses. An electronically controlled access gate, a secure perimeter, and some type of video surveillance.

Company’s Credentials Matter

Check to see how long the company has been in business and reviews from their customers. Word of mouth reputation is always helpful.


Pick the Best Spot For Your Needs

If you plan to access your RV often, choose a facility that has available spots near the entrance gate. This will save you the hassle of navigating a large RV around in a storage property.
