RV and Boat Storage with Scott Ramser [An In Depth Walkthrough]
Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast! I’m your host, AJ Osborne!
So as you could imagine, I get a ton of questions about a lot of things self storage… but something I get asked about absolutely all the time is RV and Boat storage.
Common themes I hear are, “Hey AJ, I have some land and want to put some open parking spots for RV and boat storage so I can make some money and get into the self storage game.” Or, “Hey AJ, I want to develop but don’t have the capital to build a large full scale storage facility, could I do Boat and RV storage?”
To be honest, RV and Boat storage is a niche within a niche. Storage is a niche of real estate and business, and RV and Boat storage is a niche of it’s own within that…. And it’s not something I know a ton about because I don’t specialize in it. But you’re in luck.
Today I have another awesome guest on the podcast for you who DOES specialize in this exact thing, and he’s absolutely crushing it. It’s my pleasure to introduce you all to Scott Ramser.
Scott came into the storage world in the 80’s ad 90’s with a development background in industrial property. Almost by accident, Scott ended up backing an RV and Boat Storage facility. After that… the rest was history. So much so that in 2003 Scott burned the ships and scrapped all other assets and went all in on RV and Boat Storage.
Scott shares a ton of great info in today’s episode. He shares how he got started, what his investment strategies are, how he improves the value of RV and Boat storage facilities, his value add strategy, tips on the ideal RV and Boat storage layout, the ideal ratio of acres to the amount of units you can make, and more.
If you’ve even remotely thought about starting or owning an RV and Boat storage specific facility, you absolutely need to listen to this episode through and through. Scott is a wealth of knowledge and share a lot of great insights into this niche within a niche.
Thanks for listening everybody,
