Urgent home for Christmas on the Peninsula nativity float needed!

 

We urgently need a place to store our 16- foot trailer which is our nativity float in our Christmas Parade. It would be great if it would be under roof (garage, shed, barn etc.) but for the last half a year it has been stored next to a driveway under tarp so that would work too.
