Food for thought. I have gone the less costly fabric quonset building route. Dimensions are 48' L x 24' W x 18' H. Height at frame cross bars is ~ 16'. Rollup door is 12' W x 14' H. Anchored to gravel pad. No foundation required. Pedestrian doors at front and rear. Guaranteed for 15 years. Located in a protected area on our country yard amongst the trees. Permanent electrical pending although full light during the day. Easy access and all four slide-outs can be opened."

I had the Quonset installed by a local supplier/installer. These buildings can be installed DIY but you will require 2 or 3 people to assist, a scissors lift or a couple of 14' stepladders, a power drill and assorted hand tools. The screw-in anchors can be installed manually with effort but the installer used a bobcat with an auger driver. Of the total cost of $13,000 including our 5% federal sales tax, the installation portion was $2800. This particular make is manufactured locally by HiQual Engineered Structures Ltd. at www.hiqualproducts.com
It sure is great having our coach sheltered from the Manitoba wind and snow!
If you have any other queries, let me know.

I'm new on this site, but old to the MH scene. I have had a simple RV port at our home in WI for seven years. It is in a shaded area and works well for the time we are there. The MH is in the open the rest of the year either traveling or sits behind our home in AZ.

Our son just bought his first motorhome and is in the process of building an 80'X100' building to house his 43' Ellipse and 24' enclosed trailer without unhooking. The entire floor is heated, will have an 80' shooting range, a hoist for projects and one corner will be fashioned after a 1940s gas station complete with the bell ringer hose and a restored gravity feed gas pump. I figured I could just trade motorhomes every few years for what he is spending on his storage.

He's been in The Caymans for a couple weeks, but should be home tonight. His building might have the roof and sides on, but it's far from being done. I won't see it till May when we go back up there. Knowing him, it won't lack for anything.

Hey Doc Hugh, We live in Reno, Nevada and get the hot summers and snowy winters also. I like what you decided on. If it's guaranteed 15 years, I'll be lucky to out live it.

rini2- I also have 10' high doors on my 40' x 60' shop. The pictures below shows how I modifed one bay to provide a 14' high x 12' wide door. Your shop looks like it could be modified the same way depending how you trusses are arranged.

Very nice. Did you go back to the original building manufacturer? Just curious how they tied the 4 post in back to the original frame.

Did not go back to the OEM, but used a local contractor that erect red iron metal buildings mostly in the 250K (+) sq ft size range.

There are main trusses 15' on centers running the 40' direction with a 12/4 pitch. They fabricated 4" x 4" x .5" wall thickness "stick ups" that support the perlens in the first photo which are bolted to these trusses. Then the roof cross channels have 45 deg supports welded to the stick ups and roof structure. That allowed the removal of the original header and roof structure over the 10' door that we moved 15' (see second photo) and created a 12/1 pitch to achieve the 14' door height.

Works slick for storing our MH. It is easy to back the rig out and use the bay if necessary.

This shelters our RV from sun & snow. It is 13.5' X 40 '. The picture is when the
previous Class C was under it , but now shelters our 35' class A. Very in-expensive,
6X6 posts supporting what was once the walls pieces from two 13.5' diameter grain
bins. The grain bin sections where re-assemble to make up the 40' long roof.

Make this a sticky

I have a few commercial buildings that I use for my business and since I have them, I started storing other guys coaches from IRV2 and a few other groups. Mine is always at the door and ready to roll.
When I retire, I will have a building built down south just for our toys! For now I have to keep it at my office!
