rv storageRV Storage Lots have a total of 362 spaces from 20’ to 50’ in size with monthly fees from $20-35. Only one spot per guest. Recreational vehicle storage is essential because parking a RV in military family housing on is prohibited. The purpose of RV storage is to ensure that active duty living on base have access to park their RV in compliance with the housing rules. To fulfill that purpose the assignment of spaces is done on a priority system. First priority is active duty members living on base, followed by active duty living off base. Third priority is retired military and fourth is reserve military. The fifth priority is Edwards AFB DoD and contract employees.
