We are considering a 20x48 rv garage. All we have room for.

Anyone have this size garage that could share some pics of inside with coach in to see what kind of space we will have on sides? Our coach is less than 1 year old is just under 37 feet.

Thanks

Lets see your coach garage

In the process of adding some upgrades to create an new storage space. Building is 50'x60' and started with a 12' tall x 10' foot overhead door. Building is fully insulated and dry walled. Without heating it rarely dips below freezing inside, small kitchen area is heated so some heat escapes. I have not winterized boat in 20 years.

Freezing temps are fast approaching, yes RV will get winterized then placed inside its new home. Not ready to chance freezing any lines.

Ours is 24x48. The length at 48 feet should be no problem our motor home is 36 feet and there is plenty of room. The width at 20 ft will be ok but certainly not spacious. I think you should be able to open the slides and still walk around your RV. What size and what type of door do you plan on using. I would not go any smaller than 14x14. A roll up door will fit up between the rafters. A regular garage type door requires more head room.

How about parking somewhere spread out then measure off your measurements and mark the corners with four (six if you put two in the center of the front to rear measurement) cans of your favorite contents that should give you a visual impression.

I've been renting a 16x50 for the tune of $325 a month. Time to build my own, will eventually pay for it self at that price.

It had 12 foot wide x 14 foot overhead door, didn't have any issues getting in and out but I am thinking a 14 or maybe even a 16 wide door.

That's cheap! I assume electric is on top of the $325.

I though it was reasonable, it included electric. 15amp only and two lighTs.

The main issue for us is the fact it is 35 miles from our house, not real convenient.

Door size

We did lots of measuring with the coach at ride height before we bought the insulated door. Our finished size is 12' 9" high and 12' wide. Some class A coaches may need more height but all will fit the 12' width. Make sure you measure at ride height.

door size

One more important note on the door, if you are going to use an automatic opener you need between 1' and 1 1/2' above the finished opening and the building frame for the opener. We would have make our opening bigger but were limited with opener space.

Mine is 30x48. Plenty of width. I can have slides out as well as have workbenches, shelves and sofa. Was plenty of length with my 35 footer, until I upgraded to a 43 footer! Now it barely fits in length-wise. My advice is go 50 foot at least, so you have room to grow! Also the 14'x14' door is great and I have a regular opener no problem. Was around $600 installed.

If height is really an issues with the door opener they have motors that mount to the side I also had a manual chain hoist in mine for power failures.

Hope you have a remote water drain on the air compressor

It sure does (was not hooked up when picture taken) as well as an aluminum extension rod so I can shut the air tank off from the system while standing on the floor.
