Investing in Storage Units Blog - RV & Boat Storage at Luxelocker
The Pacific Northwest has long been a favorite destination of RVers who really love getting back to nature. With its stunning ocean roads, breathtaking mountain ranges, and picturesque towns, a Washington road trip is the stuff of dreams and movies.
When we scout for new locations for LuxeLocker RV and boat storage campuses, we, of course, for locations that are most attractive to those who love the outdoor life. We didn’t have to look too hard to realize that Boise is one of the best locations for LuxeLocker.
While researching self-storage facilities as an investment, you may have come across the idea that they tend to show resistance to recessions and economic slowdowns when compared with other commercial real estate investments.
For many years, I have supported self-storage as a great way to invest your money. In my experience, it is a recession-resistant and often overlooked way to invest. Don’t just take my word for it. Recently, StorageMart — the eighth largest self-storage company — announced Bill Gates joined forces with them as an investor.
The sun. A wonderful source of…well, fun. And destruction. The sun is a mixed blessing for RVers. For the RV, it’s mostly a negative. Parked in the sun on a 100-degree (F) day for one hour results in a dashboard temperature of 157 degrees. The upholstery is a bit luckier. It only reaches 123 degrees. The steering wheel: 127 and the cabin living quarters, 116.
Have you ever wanted to be in one of those old Western movies? Then get your tailpipe to Phoenix. Arizona is an RVer’s paradise; it knows how to provide every amenity with its long history of RV hospitality. Cowboys everywhere, and a time before cowboys. Quick day trips. Long hiking or biking excursions. Golf, Shopping. Fine art, cactus contortions, and amaaaazing food.
