Big developments are underway in the desert just north of Lake Havasu City, changes the area has not yet seen. Across the highway from Havasu Heights, is the future home of the Riverbound Custom Storage & RV Park, a revolutionary new take on the storage industry.
Ryan Rodney, Project Developer and CEO of Riverbound Storage Management, LLC., holds tender memories of his childhood growing up in Parker. Now located in Irvine, Calif., he knew he wanted to bring an extraordinary concept to Mohave County.
The Riverbound Custom Storage & RV Park was started in the summer of 2017 with the aim to transform the storage development industry. Through endless brainstorming and collaboration, they had begun to bring their largest development concept into fruition.
In May 2018, the company approached the Mohave County Board of Supervisors with a conceptual development site plan. In July, the plan was approved and is now ready to begin Phase 1.
“The hard working members of the County of Mohave and their reviewing agencies have been fantastic to work with. They have been very communicative, very understanding, and we really appreciate their support. We look forward to a long, prosperous relationship with them,” Rodney said.
They expressed appreciation to Desert Land Group for an efficient transaction process of the 160 acres.
What sets Riverbound Custom Storage & RV Park aside from its competitors is the safety, customization, and wide-range of accommodations the facility has to offer.
The limitless customization options will provide a sense of freedom to the consumer to develop their storage unit to their unique desires. Each individual site will be a separate 5,445 sq. ft. lot or 1/8th of an acre , in which the each interior is able to be uniquely designed via an a-la-carte template.
“On the site, customers are able to have a pre-fabricated 18’x50′ toy barn and on the inside of that they can customize the interior of them so they can have the amenities they want. The facility is going to be able to cater to a wide audience of RV, off road , and boat enthusiast, ” Rodney said.
Each site will house this “home-away-from-home” nook as well as a cart-port style attachment to house RV’s, UTV’s, Boats, and other recreational vehicles.
Along with customizable units to fit every need, there are plans for fun amenities such as to install a kid’s park, swimming area, driving range. Likewise, there will be a fueling station for all vehicle types.
“At the end of the day, customer’s want something that is new, that is spacious, and a facility where they can put their high-end toys and have the peace of mind that their investments are safe and sound. We’re going go the extra mile so our customers know that their treasures are secure and that we are going to treat them like it is ours.”
Each “toy barn/man cave” will have a climate control feature to maintain the quality of the interior as well as any items within them. There will be water, sewage disposal, and electricity, and Wi-Fi available for short-term and extended-stayers.
On top of luxury storage and amenities, there will also be VIP concierge service opportunities. These exclusive services include priming, mechanical tune-ups of recreational vehicles for future use, delivery to location, and even launching options for boats/jet-skis, making it a one stop shop.
Once the customer is ready to put their toys back in their cave, Riverbound will cover that as well.
This concept is new, fresh, and unseen in other communities. Not only is the aim of the development to provide safe and properly managed storage, but also to create a welcoming environment for visitors alike.
Phase 1 is aimed to be opened tentatively by the year’s end of 2019 with the initial 100 sites and Phase 2 encompassing an additional 150 sites. A highly anticipated Groundbreaking Ceremony will be held at the property on the afternoon of November 10th, 2018.
“All the glory goes to God! I also have to give a ton of credit to everybody at Riverbound Storage Management and our entire team. We really work hard and as a family everyday. My team and I have put our blood sweat and tears into this so to see it come together is really satisfying.”
With numerous amenities, customizable features, and reliable 24/7 staff and crew, Riverbound Custom Storage and Rv Park is sure to become a new home-away-from home for today and the generations of tomorrow.
