Key Site Characteristics

RV & Boat Storage and Managed Truck Parking / IOS Share Several Key Characteristics

  • Very similar site attributes and location characteristics (low coverage, paved, industrial zoning, proximity to population centers)
  • Niche market segments that have not attracted institutional capital at scale.
  • Tenants are storing expensive durable goods that require storage unless they are destroyed
  • Land coverage plays that often have exit optionality and cash-on-cash solid yields.
  • Strong Demand: Ownership of RVs has increased by more than 62% over the past 20 years.  E-commerce has increased outdoor storage demand for truck parking and container storage.  Meanwhile, the need for traditional outdoor storage uses like laydown and contractor yards continues growing
  • Limited or negative supply growth that has not kept pace with demand
  • Limited future supply: Product types that are difficult to entitle and develop thanks to strict zoning requirements, unfavorable building-to-land coverage ratios, municipal development restrictions, and high land and construction costs
  • Low recurring maintenance capex: once stabilized, ongoing maintenance capex requirements are minimal
