There’s nothing more frustrating than when you discover someone scratched or rubbed against your vehicle or aircraft because it was parked too close to another while in storage. John Obradovich, owner of All Inside Storage of Indio, California, describes this phenomena as “hangar rash.”
“Hangar rash” is never a problem at Obradovich’s storage facilities, where no one else handles your RV, boat, car or airplane. These large storage garages leave plenty of room for personal items such as tow vehicles, trailers, fishing gear, tools and other things.
The Quality Pre-Engineered Building Systems metal hangars and metal storage buildings were all erected by R & M Steel of Caldwell, Idaho. R & M Steel manufactures and markets custom designed pre-engineered metal building systems for virtually any application. They are designed for quality, fast and economical installation and low maintenance. All buildings meet applicable codes and incorporate state-of-the-art design and manufacturing technology. Metal building components, including roof and wall panels, trims, bifold doors, sliding doors, stack doors, C’s, Z’s and eave struts are also available. They have worldwide sales and distribution and can be reached at 866-454-1800.
“All Inside Storage is actually three businesses: All Inside RV Storage; All Inside Aviation Storage; and All Inside Storage Premium,” Obradovich says. “RV Storage was built in 2000, the widest units are 16 feet and have sectional doors. Next we built the airport in four stages. We have 200,000 square feet with 75 hangars. They range from small tee-hangars to box hangars 80 feet wide with Schweiss Doors bifold doors.
“After many people initially came to the airport years ago trying to rent or buy a hangar for their motorhomes or car collections, I decided to build ‘Hangars Not On An Airport,’ and that is AIS Premium,” explained Obradovich. “Our costs are reasonable and business is good!”
There are fully-insulated individual units from 10 feet to 100 feet wide and up to 85 feet deep. The larger units have electric Schweiss bifold liftstrap doors with remote openers. Clean, 60-foot concrete driveways allow for easy access and there is an air-conditioned lounge with restrooms, two covered wash areas and a local dump station. High-tech security with 24/7 access is another plus at all the buildings, which are spread over 10 acres.
A Door King Micro Plus button on a key ring will open the gate so users don’t have to get out of the vehicle. Each entry is recorded. When activated, the security system turns on the light inside. The light goes out 30 minutes after the door is closed. Some units are climate controlled. All units have 16-foot high ceilings and can accommodate both high and wide RVs.
To say that Obradovich is a good Schweiss Door customer is an understatement. Nearly all of his buildings have Schweiss Bifold liftstrap/autolatch doors on them; about 130 at last count. Only four of the early doors are cable lift doors.
“We originally built 60,000 square feet for rental storage off the airport — 30 or so hangars for motorhomes and toys and 75 hangars at the airport,” Obradovich says. “Our RV storage started with 38 units and we have added another 22 to that. We have now expanded that project by 40,000 square feet which gives us a total of 400,000 square feet of storage and hangar use; 300,000 square feet of this has Schweiss doors and 100,000 square feet with sectional doors.”
These Schweiss doors date back to June of 2004 when Obradovich first ordered eight 60 x 21.9-foot doors. Since then he has installed a 70 x 21.9-foot door, numerous bifolds in the range of 50 and 40 feet with the smallest door being a 23.4 x 14 feet.
