I had a ex-neighbor down the street who had to do that. I watched him as he backed the coach into his garage one day. He backed until the mirrors were approaching the garage door sides and then he got out and twisted each mirror head on both sides and then continued backing the rest of the way.
If you are going forward into the garage, you obviously could twist the mirror heads ahead of time before driving into the garage. When backing out, you may have to twist the mirror so you can view it as you're backing and upon approaching the garage door, jump out and twist the mirror heads so that they will clear and then twist them back once completely out. It may not be the best way as I know it would be nice to be able to view the mirrors at all times but it definitely is the cheapest way to solve the problem as there's no alteration to either the coach or the garage door involved.
I took some photos and placed them in an Album in iRV2 but not sure how to make them available.
