Is that wide enough, or do you really wish you had gone with an 18'?
Mine is 16' wide and it allows for opposing slides to be extended and baseent doors to be opened. But......I wish it was wider.

Hi Kix. Thats kind of what i was thinking. So 16' is ok but 18' would be much better. The price difference on the 16' and 18' is pretty small, but really hard and expensive to make it larger afterwards.

If you can afford the 18 the go with it unless you can go even wider. Also, the most length for the largest coach. We have a 40' coach but the building is 46' as that's all the space I had.

Space and money have a distinct bearing on what size you can have

Banghead, banghead, banghead,
I believe my head would spinning if I had to do all that coordination. You would in all the years the cities, County's and states have been doing this there would be a central office for handling this. This is awful that the people where you live have to do this.

Ok so my garage is almost done. This turned out to be a great thread. So here's what I guilt 40x60x16 with two 14x14 doors. It has a copper roof and tan sides.

Here's mine. When I built the barn, didn't own the motorhome. I put the L-addition on to fit the coach, but the door is only 12' 1". The Journey 'just fits'.

Power, water and septic

So what are you guys doing about power, water and sewer when you build these buildings? How many amps are you pulling? Most of these are much larger then just the motor home so I assume you have shops and kitchens and other stuff in them.

What about water and sewer? Running those too? Do you drain your tanks in the garage? How did you determine where to place the connections, etc.

I ran 50A service, water, and a sewer clean out to mine. I only have to use a 10' cord to plug in at home. I used the 20A breaker for my lighting and a couple more receptacles.

We set ours up just like a RV park. If you back in all hookups are on the drivers side at the rear. I put 8 RV boxes like Scotty has with cable and phone added. Inside and out. Three capped sewer drains in the floor. Hot an cold soft water, inside and out. A 200 amp service runs the whole place very easy. Natural gas does the floor heat with separate thermostats in the shop and lounge. A split system on the same boiler. AC is run by electric and the on demand hot water is natural gas. The outside grill and the 1932 magic chief are on natural gas. Cable, Internet and phone are all on fiber optics now. Domestic water is piped inside and out for plants and grass. Pictures are on page three of this thread.

Washbob's garage

We are trying to decide what kind of carport to build for our rv beside our house. I really like yours and was wondering about how much one like yours would cost to build. Thanks

I built 50x50 garage last year. Currently home to my outgoing class c and ready to welcome Monaco diplomat next week. Ceiling it 16 feet high. RV side of the door is 14 foot high. I sized it for 45 ft tag axle some day. 11 inches of double reinforced concrete floor. The other side is for storing other toys :/)Click image for larger version
