Tucson RV Storage, a self-storage facility specializing in recreational and other large vehicles, has opened for business on a 17-acre parcel in an unincorporated area of Pima County, Ariz., near Tucson. Owner Nick Sheldon believes the facility is the second largest RV storage location in the state, he said.
Sheldon purchased the property this fall and held a soft opening for the business on Oct. 21. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Marana, Ariz., Chamber of Commerce is scheduled for Nov. 21.
In addition to vehicle storage, the property at 5450 N. Camino de la Tierra has a 2,000-square-foot warehouse and three office buildings ranging from 500 to 1,200 square feet. The largest office building is near the facility’s entry gate and serves as Tucson RV’s headquarters. The warehouse and smallest office building are leased, and the third office space (800 square feet) is available for lease, Sheldon said.
“There’s a solid-block perimeter wall around the entire acreage,” Sheldon said. “It’s topped with razor wire. We also are installing security cameras and a digital-access gated mechanism to make the facility as secure as possible.”
Sheldon said he grew up in the self-storage business, with his parents running a facility for more than 20 years. He was a facility manager at several locations in Arizona before embarking on his own RV-storage facility.
As the business grows, Sheldon said he plans on offering additional amenities including mobile-detailing services, mechanic services and propane sales.
