Rvadventure. Nice garage. Sounds like you did it right. It makes a big difference in upkeep on the rig when you can park it inside.

Just moved my coach into a new pole barn I built. 24x52x16 with a 12x14 door. I am finishing the inside lights tomorrow using a rented sissor lift. After thinking about this, how do you all change the bulbs in your ceiling fixtures? I thinking an extension ladder would be an option, but I'm curious if anyone has different approach.. Pioneer built the garage with floor. I did the 200 amp service with help from a friend who is electrical contractor. All the inside electrical and outside security lights and cameras was self done. I absolutely love it. Thanks for the input.

I built an 18x60 with 14x14 door and didn't put any lights in the overhead. I mounted (3) 8' florescent fixtures spaced evenly down each side at about 7' height. It lights up the garage perfect and get's the light down where you need it.

At least on a few of them you could stand on top of the RV and change them

Did my electrical myself also. Used an extension ladder for the overhead lights. All bulbs are LED so hopefully they won't need changing for a few years. Bought Utilitech 60 watt bulbs in six packs from Lowes for $13.98 so they cost $2.33 each. Hung 4' LED shop lights from Costco in the work area. Tired of replacing incandescent bulbs so everything is being replaced with LEDs when they blow.

I did mine the same way. With the lights at the 7 foot height it does put the light where it is most needed. It also provides enough light on the top if you want to check the roof.

Thanks.... but never thought that mounting on the side walls would have worked, so they are up there 16'.... Since the garage is 24' wide, the fixtures are exactly between the sides of the coach and the walls, so changing from the roof of the coach is out.... I'm going to start looking for a ladder when I get home tonite!! Ugh....(sorry the pictures are sideways....)

You have any pictures? I'm liking this idea. I have 4 EA 4x4' outdoor fluorescent fixtures that I haven't put up yet.

Not as fancy as most of these garages on here, but it works for me. I wanted to build something nicer and permanent but have permitting issues down where I live. I just finished building this a few weeks ago, and have also added a shade fabric cloth to the rear to help block more sun. It does a great job, especially for the price!

Yep,

As long as the coach is protected from the elements, that's really all that counts. I had the same exact style cover for quite a few years at our previous home and, it was great. The sun never saw that coach unless we were in it, using it. Those of course are more subject to wind and, degradation due to sun and UV effects. But, where budgets are the reigning authority, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

I'd do it again if I were faced with certain conditions. But, where we move to about 18 months ago, we were fortunate to purchase a brand new home WITH AN RV GARAGE attached. That's a nice cover. It should serve you well for a few years before needing replacement.
