Colorado is an adult playground, and as we start to adventure outdoors, many of us begin to acquire recreational vehicles. Are you considering purchasing a recreational vehicle? Perhaps you find a camper-van particularly alluring, or you’ve suddenly come across a travel trailer that is perfect for a weekend get-away, or you’ve discovered a need for storing your rugged collection of motorbikes. Now, before we get caught up in dreaming about your new mobile lifestyle, we have to consider one crucial element. Where are you going to park it?  Before one considers purchasing an RV, they must know the particulars of Colorado recreational vehicle storage, here are some helpful points to consider:

Neighborhood Covenants

First, does your home belong to a homeowners association? Each HOA is unique and has their specific requirements. The purpose of your HOA is to create a consistent look and feel of your neighborhoods – promoting consistent property values as they improve the aesthetics of the community. An HOA is made up of Board Members – homeowners of a community – that enforce regulations on neighborhoods. A homeowners association can regulate anything from house color choice, a choice in trees, grass height and new light fixtures. Rest assured your HOA will have a vested interest in where and how you park your recreational vehicles. Before purchasing your recreational vehicles, be sure to speak with your homeowner’s association.

Local & City Municipalities

Just like each HOA, each local and city municipality has their RV parking & storage regulations as well!  Luckily most of Colorado’s local and city municipalities provide their Colorado recreational vehicle storage regulations conveniently online, for example, the Jefferson County’s website offers this service. Be sure to check your local & city municipality.


If one lives in an unincorporated area, one is guaranteed freedom from local municipalities – in that while they do not govern the restrictions in residential areas, the more prominent administrative divisions do. Unincorporated areas are often the best option for Colorado recreational vehicle storage.

Paid Colorado Recreational Vehicle Storage

If you have no options for parking your recreational vehicles at home, you might consider paid recreational vehicle storage.  Paid storage will have a lot of options and you will be subject to varying levels of prices.  Some factors that you will want to evaluate include security, convenience, whether covered storage is needed, and the length of the contract. Covered RV storage is a good idea if you plan on storing your RV long-term.
