Vehicle Storage Guide
We offer a variety of sizes to accommodate your storage needs. For vehicle storage, parking units range in size from 10 feet to 50 feet in length and 8 feet to 12 feet in width. To measure your trailer for the size parking unit you need, measure it from front to back (end to end) including the tongue.
Class A Motorhome – An RV with the living accommodations built on or as an integral part of a self-propelled motor vehicle. Models range from 24 to 45 feet in length and 8 ½ feet in width.
Class B Motorhome – Also known as a camping van conversion. These RVs are built within the dimensions of a van, but with a raised roof to provide additional headroom. Basic living accommodations inside are ideal for short vacations or weekend trips. Models range from 16 to 21 feet in length and 6-8 feet in width.
Class C Motorhome – An RV with the living accommodations built on a cutaway van chassis. A full-size bed in the cab-over section allows for ample seating, galley and bathroom facilities in the coach. Models range from approximately 16 to 32 feet in length and 8 to 8 ½ feet in width.
Fifth-Wheel Trailers – Fifth-wheel trailers are designed to be coupled to a special hitch that is mounted over the rear axle in the bed of a pickup truck. These trailers can have one, two or three axles and are the largest type of trailer built. Models range from 22 to 40 feet in length and 8 to 8 ½ feet in width.
Boat Trailers – Boat trailer models range from 4 to 30 feet in length and 4 to10 feet in width. An average boat trailer is 8 feet in width and 16 feet in length.
BACKING UP TIPS FOR YOUR RV OR BOAT
- Turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction that you want the trailer to go. Some people like to place a hand at the bottom of the steering wheel and move it in the direction they want the trailer to turn towards.
- Take your time. Get out and survey the situation. Plan how you want to back the trailer in. Look for obstacles and move anything that is in the way. Don’t forget to look up.
- Have a good spotter. A spotter can help guide you into your space and let you know if you are getting too close to an object or another trailer.
- Have clean and properly adjusted mirrors and use them. Make sure you can see your spotter in your mirrors and monitor them every few seconds.
- Pay attention to the front. It’s very easy to get all caught up in backing and forget what is right in front of the truck.
- Try to always back into spots on the driver’s side. Backing into a spot on the passenger side is called a blind back in and is more difficult, due to limited visibility with the trailer blocking your vision.
