    well hello agasin, you still don't say where you are, prices range from a couple of quid for parking in a field to around 25 for secure storage. Given you location other people may be able to give you local quotes, what motorhome is it do you have a bambi or 40ft RV, help us to help you by filling out your profile. Goto "my profile on the top of the page.:thumb:

    storage

    hi we live in Bury and store our M/H on a local farm we pay £78 per quarter.There is a very secure caravan storage place in Darcy Lever Bolton but the charges are much higher I think £500 plus per year

    laying up just follow the advice sheet drop all water incl boiler and leave all taps open
    also give it a little run every 3/4 weeks

    Apart from draint the water down and opening the taps we have never done anything.. but then, we do try and get out in it as often as poss no matter what the weather so I guess that keeps things going nicely :thumb:

    Refilling the system is no hardship so it takes but moments to get out there and hit the road ( again :BigGrin: )

    Thanks Jaws. I think sometimes when we are learning we tend to panic a bit when we see a thread on something we arn't sure of. I've learned a lot just from this thread which was started by someone else. Brilliant. :Smile:

    Best advice is, don't do it.

    Birds know a thing or two, copy them and head south for the winter.

    hi
    rats, mice and squirrels just love to dine on the insulation on electrical wires-----I feel it excellent insurance to leave something else for them to eat-----like rat/mouse poison----just dump the little bags of it behind cupboards and in lockers, also under the bonnet---they will find it if they are spending the winter in your van
