Truck & Trailer Parking For Amerivespa 2016 Memphis

This just in:

If you’re lodging downtown, have no worries about inexpensive trailer parking. While the Sheraton will charge $18/day (double that if you have a trailer and want to unhook it), two other sites just around the corner from the Sheraton are not charging Amerivespa guests extra for trailers. Mud Island River Park garage is only $6/day for both car + trailer, and the Memphis Cook Convention Center underground garage is $15 / day for car + trailer. You’ll see on the map how close they are located to the Sheraton!
