Re: Storage of RoadTrek in Vegas
Mike/Davydd, thanks for your feedback.
Yes KC is smack dab in the middle of the country. Over the last 15 months we have taken 4 trips to the southeast and three to the southwest. We live on a Lake and love the water. That having been said, we really like the parks in the west....Like Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, etc. In my humble opinion that the B really shines is in the western national Parks. We think that if we have more time to explore and less time just getting there, that in the next five years we can really investigate the nooks and crannies in the western parks we have already been to, and have a better opportunity to see the ones we have not. So Davydd, your point is well taken, we will be giving up the east for the west. We have lived in the Southeast portion of the US on several occasions and have seen a lot (but of course not all) of the cool stuff. So, other than having some regrets on not visiting the maritimes, we are willing to make that trade off.
In addition with the property prices being as low as they are in Vegas, we are considering a second home in there. If that is the case we would spend the winter months there. It appears that most of the communities that have HOA's will not allow the van to be parked in the subdivision...hence even if we do purchase a home in Vegas, we will need storage.
In KC I store the van in a limestone cave. I believe that is a somewhat unique offering in this part of the country. The caves are mined out limestone and are huge. The one that we store the van in is over 1,000 acres. The temp is a constant 55 degrees. I am not too concerned about property damage at a storage facility. Most are gated and secured. In addition the van is well insured.
I was wondering more about the effect of the high summer temps on the vehicles interior components. I have never lived in a hot desert climate and have no experience with that. Also, if someone has specific recommendations of specific facilities to use or avoid that would be appreciated.
