Kenny Cobb’s work takes the Farmerville resident all over north Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas. Starting here around Lake D’Arbonne, one thing he notices is a lot of expensive boats and RV’s sitting out in the elements in driveways and yards. In his travels, he has also seen a new trend in boat and RV storage facilities where owners can protect their valuable recreational investments.
“We all know that too much sun can ruin boat interiors and the roofs of motor homes and RVs and it eventually dulls and cracks their finishes and diminishes their value,” Cobb said. “Since we have so many people with boats and RV’s in the area, mainly because of the lake and State Park, we thought it would be nice to have a place for people that don’t have shops to park out the weather.”
Thus, the Eagle Point Boat and RV Storage facility was born. It is located at 100 Eagle Point Drive, just off Holder Road a block off Hwy. 2 next to the new Union Parish Sheriff’s Office. That’s just as you come into town on Hwy. 2 (behind Brookshire’s). The units have recently been completed and Cobb is already getting interest in them. He expects that to really pick up when the weather clears and people begin using them again. Eagle Point Boat and RV Storage has 12 X 40 covered spaces, electricity at each site, RV water and sewer dump and 24-hour video surveillance. The area is completely fenced and renters can access the property 24/7 with remote control garage openers provided with their rentals. Not only does it offer local residents a place to store valuable recreational vehicles, it’s a great place for people from Monroe, West Monroe, Ruston, El Dorado or other area towns to store their boats and know they are secure just a mile from the lake. That way they don’t have to tow them up and down the road every time they want to visit the lake.
We are also glad to welcome Eagle Point Boat and RV Storage as a lakedarbonnelife.com sponsor. Remember, without our sponsors, we couldn’t bring you the latest outdoor news, features, fishing reports and information about D’Arbonne and our other area lakes and outdoor resources.
