Campervan Storage

Does anyone know of a parking/storage place suitable for campervans, on the west side of Lake Zurich? We currently live in the Enge area of Zurich but I am not against a 15 minute train ride to get to it. Any ideas much appreciated!

John

But it's 19 minutes by train from Enge.

Re: Campervan Storage

Thanks Tom, might be a tad too far but not a bad price! Ideally I am looking for somewhere quiet secure, if such a place exists.

And where do you seriously expect to find parking suitable for a campervan within 15mins of central Zurich??

You might want to give information of the height of the campervan as if you want secure you'll want it indoors - or fenced (possible barrier).

You might find it worthwhile talking to local campervan/caravan suppliers, they'll know local places. There are a few near me - with a big one opening at Hegnau soon. But there is no point giving you more details as they are all over 15mins away.

The places next to a shop which sells and services campers are more expensive than just a field somewhere, as they are usually fenced in and the staff are there during working hours.

Nothing is 100%, but sometimes it is worth paying a bit more.

There are a few old industrial buildings about which have space large enough for a camper and are locked, but these are more than 50/month, and when a spot does come free it is usually filled by a friend of a friend, or from a waiting list. I know of two such buildings in Regensdorf, but the waiting list is long enough that you would be faster to sign on for a manned trip to Mars.

I'm not sure how secure it is but there are a lot of vans parked there.

With regard to distance and time, what's 10 minutes in the grand scheme of things if you're going away for a weekend?

I can't ever remember having thought not to go camping to a particular place because it was 4 minutes too long for the drive.

If time was important they'd not be driving a campervan
