Picking the right unit size for parking RVs, boats, or vehicles isn’t difficult, but here are a few tips to help you make the right decision. At RV Storage Vancouver we specialize in outdoor storage units for all types of RVs and other vehicles.


Best Storage Unit Size For Parking RVs

Before choosing the right size storage space for an RV it is important to understand that the type of RV makes a difference when it comes to parking.


Unit Sizes for Class A RVs

Class A RVs can range from about 21 feet to over 45 feet in length. Although these are big RVs, they can be easier to maneuver than towable RVs. At RV Storage Vancouver we designed our parking spaces with flexibility in mind. As long as we have availability, we will be able to accommodate large RVs by combining back to back spaces for a total maximum length of 65′. Combining back to back spaces also allows the space to become a pull-thru space.


With pull thru spaces you simply drive forward to park and drive forward to exit the parking spot.

Unit Sizes For Class B RVs

Class B RVs are the smallest and easiest to park. These are typically less than 20′ long and can fit into any of our spaces. The best spaces for Class B RVs will be 10×20, 10×22, 12×20 or 12×22.

Unit Sizes For Class C RVs

Class C RVs are medium size RVs, ranging between 20 feet and 31 feet long. RV Storage Vancouver will be a perfect facility for these vehicles, as all of our spaces will accommodate Class C RVs. These sizes include 10×20, 10×22, 10×25, 12×20, 12×22. 12×25, 12×30, 12×33, and 12×35.

Unit Sizes For Towable RV Trailers

Fifth wheels and travel trailers can average in lengths between 20 and 40 feet. RV Storage Vancouver was designed with towable vehicles in mind. This is why our driveways are up to 45′ wide.

To maneuver these trailers into position, it is best to select the widest parking spaces. Whenever possible it is a good idea to check on the availability of two back to back spaces to provide for a long pull-through space.


At RV Storage Vancouver we’ll have 12′ wide spaces ranging from 25′ long to two back to back spaces in a pull-thru configuration with a total length of 65′.
