I had my house custom built so I would have 12' 10" inside 10 years before I purchased my 1st MH. I did this to put an auto lift in my garage. I love to work on my cars.

Now that I have a motor home I wish I had made my any of my garage doors taller so I can drive my MH inside. I have a 40' long power lam over my doors and it would cost too much now too move it up and install taller doors. So I have to deal with the weather and plan when to service the MH for our frequent trips. It is still worth it as we have such a great time with our family in our MH.

I'm looking at tearing my old barn down and building a new one. The old one is only 28X30 and the MH is 37'. I'm not sure if the ounty will let me expand the footprint to a 28X40, but that's what I'm going to try. My Windcruiser is only 10'2", so I don't need to go more than a 12 foot door. 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.

Built my shop doors 14ft and ceiling at 16ft
Should be enough for just about anything we might get fingers crossed
Good to get it out of the weather during the long winter

One person can move the rig without too much effort when unlocked
The leveling rams lift the rig up on the Skates, which add about 8" to the height of the rig

Make sure the doors are at least 12ft wide and 14ft tall
Your rig is 8.5ft plus the mirrors if like mine that makes it 10.5ft with the mirrors
I have 10ft wide doors and have to remove the mirrors to get the rig into it's winter home

Just completed construction on my rv garage. Went with 14 foot high doors and have 18 foot ceiling. It's only a 18x56 structure, just wanted something to store the motorhome in.
