Is there a system whereby you can find a place other than a caravan park to store you accommodation within a days drive from home. The idea being to avoid towing back and forth to/from your favourite area eg Vic HC for me? I am thinking of farm properties etc. I am wondering if this is a new concept...silverback

Lots of places in NSW will store Caravans BUT cost is high. Can be more than $50.00 per week.
Check out the yellow pages for Storage and phone around.
I am trying to find a caravan park that will let me store the van, use it on the odd weekend, and allow me to go touring a couple of times a year for four or five weeks but reserve the space when I get back.
And it has to be dog friendly, too.
Anybody know such a place with 2 to 3 hours of Wollongong NSW.

Regards,

Rosscoe

There must be plenty of land around that is too stony to plough or an old implement shed with a bit of spare space. The concept would be good for owner/farmer/air quality/safety.....???..silverback

Ircon,

A mate of mine who has now moved to the Sunshine Coast used to do what you want at the caravan park at Gerringong.

He lived in Sydney and just left the van at the park when not using it. When he wanted to go down to Gerringong, he called them, they towed the van onsite, hooked up power and then took it off site when he had finished. He would also go and get the van and go travelling for a month at a time when he had annual holidays, then return the van to the park at the end.

I dont know how much it cost him though.

Oh, and BTW, he had a little dog as well.

Might be worth looking into.

The caravan park was across the road from the bowling club and right on the beach. Great spot.

Cheers,

Cruiser

I suspect that the biggest hassle might be insurance.

There was the facility at Lake Eildon some years ago that I used to use, it was in the old engineering sheds that were built when they built the dam wall. this was a huge complex, you paid your money and they forwarded a key to you and you came and went as you pleased. I left my boat there and went up on weekends, I left it full of gear with a tarp tied across the top and never had any security problems, there were lots of boats stored there in those days, this was 20 years ago! Very close to the high country
