    Overnight parking for truck and trailer

    I'm planning a trip and would like to trailer my bike out of the city traffic congestion, park the truck and trailer for several days while I continue on with the bike. What are some places that would allow this? I would placard the truck with my name and contact info so if someone did need to reach me, they could or at least be aware that I have not returned. Any ideas?

    We had basically the same thread elsewhere. Depending on where you stay that last night of driving the truck/trailer, why don't you ask the hotel, if you can leave it in their lot?

    To encourage members that may be up to help you out, along with the general ideas, perhaps the area that you want to do this will help. OM

    Problem Solved - Duh!

    An airport. Not one of the big ones but a smaller general aviation airport. It's not unusual for pilots to leave their cars there for several days. I just called one near to where I want to set off from and they said sure, just leave them my information.
    Thanks

    What a great idea! Never thought of that. Will be doing a trip down to ride the length of the BRP and meeting my bro in VA. Was going to use a storage rental place but will now also see if there are any GA airports in the area :-)

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.

    It might be best to start with listings with a "kk" code (coffee & conversation) and ask if they know of a parking spot in their area.

    I trailer all the time, I LOVE riding, but HATE traveling on 2 wheels. 12 hours riding twisty's I am happy, and hour on a slab I am ready to have my nails pulled off, to make it stop.

    That said, Anonymous book, ADV rider has a tent space thread listing people offering space for various things, incl parking space. Hotels and motels as others mentioned. MC dealerships are generally accommodating, Independent repair shops, incl car and truck repair, anybody with some space.

    I usually show up with a gift of adult beverage, or get a gift certificate to a local diner as a show of appreciation.
