    Does anybody know where I could park a 54 ft reefer trailer in East Pittsburgh? I am new to these forums so if there is a better place to post this question please let me know.

    Are you talking about like Wilkinsburg or further East ?

    Live in Penn Hills so I am looking for a place to park trailer for a day or two when home. Anywhere on the east side of town would work.

    You may have noticed this already and i dont know how safe it is, but The ramp off of Penn ave. Wilkinsburg to Parkway entrance there is a wide spot there and i have seen what looks drivers home for the weekend parking there.

    Thank you but no. I am looking for a secure space if possible. Google search is not giving me much┬ůsee some things on craigslist but not sure if I want to trust it.

    Thanks the wife and I are going to check with the Walmart in Delmont and Home Depot in Monroeville to see if they would allow it.

    Here are 2 possibility's near you, I searched via satellite view to see who may have unused parking or a lot of extra they wouldn't mind sharing for a while.
    Since you are heading to Monroeville - Delmont anyway -- pull into Shop and save off of William penn hwy - when you make that left turn off of william penn you will see a big wall to your left up on top of that they have what looks like an unpaved portion of the lot --possible.
    Also Pep boys in Monroeville across from Home depot --has a huge lot to the right of the front door --i have been in pep boys many times and never even noticed that lot --i cant even see the reason for it --maybe they thought it would be much more crowded in there when they built those places.
