Joe4D: Not sure what the OP's contract says, but most are worded in a manner that allows the barn owner to modify the terms with reasonable notice. Most courts consider 7 days "reasonable" notice, depending upon the situation. Granted, it would be nice of OP to give at least 30 day (or, on whichever paying interval is specified in the contract) notice, and would allow the boarder whose trailer is parked the opportunity to remove it and not incur additional fees, or, allow some time to prepare for the added costs. Sounds like he/she is going above and beyond that in an effort to be fair.
Joe, if you ever think it is okay to "have words" with your BO, it is probably best that you just give your required notice and leave. Open hostility is NEVER okay.
To the OP: call around to local "storage" facilities, that specialize in storing trailers/campers. Around here, $25 seems to be the going rate for a trailer/camper the size of a 2 horse slant load. Be fair! You are doing the right thing by giving people a heads up - don't get discouraged if people want to discuss it with you, you have good reason to start charging! Settle on the price and let people know ASAP.
