I made the mistake of a 10ft x 14ft door - Go 12ft or 14ft wide and at least 14ft tall
Inside ceiling is high enough at 16ft, width at 50ft and length at 60ft OK but a 10ft door is NOT wide enough.

The Rig has a 8.5ft body and measures 10.5Ft wide with mirrors out and with them flipped in it's still over 10ft at 10ft and about 1"

Since it goes in / comes out of the barn only once a year for winter storage I remove the mirrors (had to install threaded inserts in the side of the rig the mirrors were held on with simple lag bolts).

Never again will I make the door width mistake

When I had an RV shelter built, we owned a 24' WGO View so I spec'd 30ftx12ftx13ft. Our new WGO Vista barely fits. It's a PITA to open the exterior bay doors and the A/C clears by ~4". The mirrors clear by ~4" on each side. When I park it dead center, a support beam blocks the door from opening completely. If I could take a Mulligan, I'd have gone with 35x14x15. But, as they say, "IF a frog could jump, it wouldn't bump its a$$ every time and IF a frog had a glass a$$, it'd only jump once!" Go with as big as you can afford and fit into that space.

Also be sure of the approach you have to the storage building, if here is any turning involved you will need to add width to the opening to make the turn. Also I agree with the others unless there are easements ect that restrict the overall size, they should be able to construct it to any opening size you want, although it may cost you more.

Oops! "If a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump it's a$$ every time..." Some days, the brain is buffering while the fingers are typing.
