Obviously as a Garage developer I believe in the value of Indoor storage for RVs and boats. Car collectors get this right away and the fact that their insurers usually make it a condition of insurance is also clear.
However I thought I would share my list of the protections and value added from storing your RV and Boat indoors. I think that these have cash value and outweighs the cost storage.
Eliminate paint oxidation
Protects upholstery from sun damage, dry rot and fading
Prevents rainwater build up, mould and mildew
Prevents rotting and staining of boat covers. no more messy birds!
Protection from vandalism and theft
Minimize premature cracking of tires on vehicles, especially in the sidewall area, which can lead to blowouts
Protection from wheel rust and trailer deterioration
Helps maintain your resale value more than the cost of indoor storage
Extends time between detailing and cleaning
Extends rubber roof life
Eliminates mildew damage caused by outdoor shrink wrapped storage
Prevents water and chemical spotting from acid rain
Prevents intrusion of rodents
Eliminates the unsightliness of at home storage
Protects your investment and secures your peace of mind
Blocks UV rays to keep vehicle body from fading and cracking
Reflects infrared rays to keep interior temperatures lower
Repels dirt, dust, mold, dry rot, and mildew, as well as sun exposure
Resist chemicals & harmful substances found in rain and bird droppings
Prevent Gel coat from oxidizing due to damaging effects of UV rays, dirt and weather. Neglect this and the vehicle finish becomes more porous, the resins oxidize and what remains is a faded, dull finish
Reduce the breakdown of plasticizers in the vinyl of the seats to resist fading and cracking
Now you can say that some of these don’t concern you or are minor. Can you say you don’t mind most of these? Let us know what you think.
