Some type of perimeter fencing is a must, anything ranging from simple chain link fencing with razor wire to a solid block wall. A 24 hour access is often a requirement for this type of storage.


There are four primary types of storage for boats and Rvs, and each has its advantages and disadvantages for you and your tenants. The more substantial the building structure the more costly it will be however this will provide more protection and security for the more expensive vehicles stored in the building.

The minimum unit width for both is 12 feet, with most units being 15 feet up to a maximum of 20 feet. The depth of each unit should be a minimum of 45 or 50 feet, the height of the building is normally 16 feet with a 12-by-14 steel roll up door either chain hoist operated or a power operated door.
