Should I Put My Precious In Storage For Two Years?
Getting stationed overseas. I hate to part with my truck, as I've put some work into it and I doubt I'll find an OBS in as good of shape with less miles. I already pay $60 to store our travel trailer in a secure lot, so I could probably tuck the truck in there too without incurring additional cost. Will probably return to the area twice a year, so I might be able to maintain it by checking fluids, getting it washed and waxed, and driving it to keep it from seizing or seals from drying-out.
Other options are to sell the truck and the camper this spring, or let a trusted friend and his family use both while we're gone. I have a lot of trustworthy friends, but not many that would want to maintain, register, and pay insurance on a rig they may not get very much use out of.
Does it make sense to store it for two years? What would have to be replaced upon return -- hoses, tires, filters, fluids, ?? thanks.
