Executive Features to Consider for Class A Boat & RV Storage Facilities

By Mark Sherman

When planning and developing an Executive Class A boat and RV storage facility, amenities are often a driving factor for owners who seek more than just a parking space. As the demand for high-quality storage facilities grows, storage owners and operators must consider incorporating additional features to set them apart. Here are a few possible value-added features for a Class A boat and RV storage facility.

  1. Climate-Controlled Units: Extreme temperatures and weather conditions can damage boats and RVs over time. Climate-controlled storage units can protect these vehicles from the harmful effects of humidity, heat, and cold. This feature is particularly attractive to owners of luxury Class A RVs and high-end boats who want to maintain a pristine condition when not in use.
  2. 24/7 Security Monitoring: Security is a top priority for boat and RV owners when selecting a storage facility. Implementing 24/7 security monitoring, including CCTV cameras, motion detectors and security patrols, provides peace of mind for customers, knowing that their vehicles are safe and protected from theft and vandalism.
  3. Vehicle Concierge Services: Offering vehicle concierge services, such as valet parking, vehicle delivery and pickup, and pre-trip inspections, can streamline the storage experience for customers. Additionally, providing a dedicated point of contact for each customer to manage their vehicle storage needs adds a personal touch and enhances the overall customer experience. These services are typically offered with large warehouse facilities.
  4. Advanced Access-Control Systems: Implementing advanced access-control systems, such as biometric scanners or digital passcodes, adds an extra layer of security to the facility. This ensures that only authorized individuals can access the storage area and enhances the exclusivity and prestige of storing high-value recreational vehicles.
  5. Electric connection options: Providing onsite electricity can be a significant value-added feature for RVs with electric or hybrid capabilities. This demonstrates a commitment to green initiatives and caters to the evolving needs of RV owners embracing eco-friendly technologies. Many boaters prefer a trickle charge option when storing.
  6. Customer Amenities: From well-maintained restroom facilities to comfortable customer lounges, providing amenities that enhance the overall storage experience can greatly impact customer satisfaction. By creating a welcoming and comfortable environment, customers are more likely to view the storage facility as an extension of their lifestyle and enjoy visiting it regularly.
  7. Wash Bay and Dump Station: For ease of clean-up and storage, having a wash bay and dump station on the premises adds convenience for boat and RV owners. 

Incorporating value-added features into a Class A boat and RV storage facility not only attracts customers but also creates a competitive edge in the market. Storage facility owners and operators should consider these features to meet the evolving needs and expectations of discerning boat and RV owners and solidify their position as a premium storage option in the industry. By offering a comprehensive array of amenities and services, storage facilities can ensure that customers feel their valuable assets are in good hands, ultimately leading to long-term customer retention and satisfaction.
