I suppose if I'm building, I should consider what I might get in the future and go higher. It will be cheaper now and I don't want to wish I had done it later. Given that, what is the talles Class A out there? Looking on the web, most seem to be just under 13', so a 14' high door should work.
You need to be careful about how much actual clearance is under the door. I looked at a couple of different 14' doors and there was a problem with them not being higher than that actual 14' opening.

I went through what you are doing in 2010. We had an old pole barn that won't fit over even part of the MH. The biggest building the town would let me build was 32'x46'10" (just under 1,500 sq ft) and the top of the roof had to be no more than 20 feet. I bought a pre-fab unit from General Steel (don't even think about using them or you'll be sorry), ended up with 47 yards of concrete in the foundation and 35% over budget.

It sure is nice now that it is finished but it was a major headache during the construction.

To build a barn style for our coach, boat and horses $35,000.00. Thats more then our first two houses together. So we will keep storing on a lot 3 miles from our home for $50.00 per month for the boat and coach.

I am close to finishing my new RV barn, it has a 16x40 center section with a 12 x 40 lean to on each side for a 40x40 footprint with a 14 h x 12w rollup door. It is a pole barn that was installed with roof only for $8500, I had the floor poured by a local contractor, purchased rough sawn lumber from a sawmill and walled inside and out vertically myself, and ordered roll up doors for each end from steel door depot in Atlanta and installed with one other person easily. I will have less than $15000 after it is stained on the outside, no electricity yet but will do that soon. I will take pics with my phone and load later. It also holds a tractor, mower, ranger and alot of junk I might need one day.

$35,000. Because of neighborhood restrictions, I had to use more expensive materials than I would have preferred. But in the end I'm happy with the outcome, I have power, water and sewer in garage, so it meets all my needs.

Steel Door depot online. They are located in an Atlanta suburb. You can get a quote online but call and you will get a little better price and better shipping rate. I ordered 2 doors, a 10 x 10 for the back and a 12 x13'6" for the front. Truck freight to a commercial address with a forklift to unload was less than $250 but delivery with a lift gate on the truck was available but probably higher. The doors were completely assembled with only the two guide rail to install. I used a front end loader on a tractor to lift the doors up and simply screwed them to the wall with the supplied lag bolts, simple, it took longer to uncrate them than to install. They definitely did not want them damaged in shipping. I would definitely buy again. I will take pics and try to load them if I can figure it out. I think the web site is steeldoordepot.com and it is a Janus 1000 door.

It's 12 x 13' 9" not 13' 6". They built the door to fit the hole. Hope this works!
