Creating Carefree: Before and After

We purchased our Apache Junction RV, boat, and trailer storage facility from the prior wonderful owners in September 2019. We immediately conducted a facility facelift to reflect our company values and customer service philosophy. We renovated the Welcome Center, canopies, storage units, and the RV wash area. We also added height to the security wall and new LED perimeter lighting to increase safety.


The property went from looking like this:

Our Welcome Center is now a modern and homey desert oasis. Our Community wall and video surveillance screens highlight our passion to keep our customers safe and connected. 


Every good home needs a dog, and Barkley the watchdog figures prominently in our logo. His pose of being at “attention” is a good reminder that we’re “on it” at our properties, ever keeping a watchful eye on your prized possessions.  


Our secure keypad entry, LED lighting system, heightened walls, and 42-camera surveillance system keep your belongings safe, and our free RV wash station keeps them clean.
