Looking For Covered Garage For Winter In Indianapolis

I'm looking for a covered / enclosed garage for a 45' bus for the winter in Indianapolis so I can work on it. I've got some frame rust remediation to do around the windows that I have to take the windows out for. I'd rather not have to take the windows out and expose more of the bus to the elements....

I'd prefer the south side of Indianapolis, Greenwood, Southport, etc., area....

Or, if you old-timers would care to share some wisdom about how to remediate around the windows w/o taking the windows out, I'd sure be excited to hear....

I'm not sure about size and all, but I know one member at least who stores theirs at Uhaul, iirc.

Do they only store, or can they work on their bus in the uhaul lot?

I have both of mine in the U-haul lot.. and its paved and covered but not fully enclosed.. im not sure how U-haul is in indianapolis.. I did a transmission swap in my U-haul space.. im sure they probably will say "you cant work on it here" in the paperwork.. but no one has given me any trouble at mine..

I have electricity as well.. I plugged my block heater in last winter for the DEV. set the timer for 2 hours per day and they never said Boo about it..

Thanks CK!

I found a lot not but 6mi from me. I've got a message in to them to see what their prices are. If I can snag an enclosed bay for this winter so I can do work on it, I'd be very VERY happy. Just getting the windows out and maybe the skin off to get at the frame rust would be great!

Edit: they're full. duh, look how close to winter we are....
