Monthly and daily spots available within the city!
As you might imagine, it’s a bit difficult to find a parking spot for RV’s, trailers and busses in the City of Chicago. While there are a good amount in the surrounding suburbs, within the actual city it’s slim pickins. This post is dedicated to the few but available, long term and short term parking options for over-sized vehicles in Chicago. I think you will be surprised by just how many options there are. If you ever come across any that we have left out, please contact us and let us know. Happy “wide-load” parking!

One last note when looking for parking in a big city is to always check the local Craigslist. You never know if someone has extra space and if they are looking to get rid of it for cheap. Browse around – you never know when something could pop up!
