For much of the year I live in a motorhome. We travel with five to six bicycles. My problem is twofold. One is storing them as we travel and the other is storage when we are stopped. I keep my good, carbon fiber bike inside. The issue is the remaining bikes, which are either steel or aluminum. We have traveled with a couple inside our compact car and a couple off the ladder on the rear of the bus. I really don't like having any outside. And when we stop there isn't a good way to store them. I keep them covered but moisture always seems to get on them anyway. And, I am not good about covering during the day when I might be on and off a bike. My most used utility bike is sunbleached and goes through chains and cables too quickly.
We have a big bin in the motorhome that looks like this:
The bin door is 42 inches wide. The bin goes the width of the bus (108 inches) but the height is limiting. With the pull out shelf and shelf above there is only 19.25 inches of vertical space. We could increase that to about 27 inches if the shelves were removed. That is not high enough to stand up bikes. So, I am trying to figure out another way to get a two or three bikes in there. We have taken them apart and put them in but that is tedious. One thing I though about was stacking them on a shelf. Pedals would have to be removed and I might get quick release pedals. Handlebars might be iffy too.
Any thoughts on this?
Any other ideas on storage? I guess we could break things down when we are traveling and figure out another storage option when we are stopped.
