Trailer Storage?

Ok, I have the addiction. Getting ready to bite the bullet and stop borrowing my buddies trailer.
Been doing tons of research, am ready to get a trailer... at least before Feb 4 (Barber) and have a question.

For those of you that have longer trailers, where the heck do I store it? I cannot store it at home. I am looking at a 28' trailer at the moment. I live in the Barrington/Hoffman Estates area near 59 & 90... does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Brian

I work on 59 and higgins and I store my trailer at the public storage in carpentersville on 31. It's about $60 a month and there's alot of motorhomes and trailers where I park mine. Hope that helps.

Usually most storage places have outside storage for such items. Just look up places in the yellow pages.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

+1 on the storage facility. I'm guessing there's one closer, but I know people that have their stuff at the facility on the corner of 45 & Peterson in Libertyville. No clue what it will cost ya, but it's a nice secure facility.

28' eh? You compensating for something or what?

Thanks for the feedback folks. It sounds like there are plenty of options and I don't need to worry too much.

UDog - Not compensating, that is what the track is for
As far as why the heck 28'? I have been using a 14' the end of this season, and it is VERY tight with three bikes. So, looking to be able to comfortably carry 4 bikes and room to spare and room for all the "stuff". (My 600, My daughters 600, My soon to be 1000, and a couple of friends bikes) So, after doing some research, it seemed logical to double the current size and put two side by side. Friends with 22' wish they had bigger, 30-32' is too large. So hopefully 28' will work out great for trips to Atlanta and Barber. Hint: Extra room for you bro!

I agree with putting it at a storage facility. Its about the best option folks like us have.
