rv shelter

We are redoing our no sides shelter to be fully insulated so I don't have to winterize. Not planning to add heat as I have a fully insulated garage that never get below 40 here in western NC. Just a tip for the roof we are adding a reflective barrier plus 6" bats, walls will be reflective barrier plus 3 1/2' bats. Insulated roll up door. we are still working on it doing the work ourselves.

Looks great. Do you do buildings in Florida? Say Pomona park area?

It was custom built by a local co Excalibur Steel Buildings. The are in NE WA, I think the mileage charges would be a deal breaker!

Nice building. I can see your point regarding the Morton prices. Their quote is not as high for mine and I have decided to go Morton. I will post pictures when available.

Morton makes good stuff. I remember a few years back, we decided to build a weekend cabin on the lake, and we liked an existing plan that Morton had for a nice horse barn. We were going to do the finish work ourselves so we just wanted the barn with concrete floors. Their price was competitive so we started working with them for construction. When they found that this was ultimately going to be a residence, they promptly doubled the estimate. There was no change on the specs, just a change in intended use. We then built a log cabin and haven't looked back. We did not consult them when we built the 40X60 RV barn, as that was probably residential in their minds eye.

For anyone building a steel pole barn for an RV garage do some research on the constructor. We have put up several such buildings on our farm to store equipment, such as RV's, classic cars and farm equipment. When we built them we had friends tell us that theirs had been built much lower costs and that we payed way too much. Ours are tight and maintenance free while our friends have trouble with rodents, small cats and large insects and have had to have additional work done to get them insulated and tight, as well as replacing cheap operating doors, not to mention bad concrete work. Cheap is cheap.

You and others have given me a reason to reconsider Morton. I will let you know what happens! Confusing. Thanks.

Not sure where you are located, but you may want to check with Menards for pricing and availability in your area.

I just had a 24x48 pole barn built for our Tiffin 35 QBA and it provides ample room. I can walk around it with the slides out and I have 6 feet in front and behind it when parked. I started to do a smaller door but I am glad I went with the 14x14 roll up door. The nice thing about the roll up door is that it fits up between the rafters and doesn't take up any head room and the opener mounts to the side.

Ours is 40x48x14. It is not big enough and I wish it was 48x72x16. Maybe we have too much "stuff".
The cost was approximately $25000 which included one 12x14 door, one man door and concrete floor. Lights, wiring, insulation, more doors and windows were added since the original build and were done piecemeal so I don't have a cost for that (or maybe I just don't want to know how much).

Be careful who you get to build it, we lost a 1/3 down payment to a builder that went bankrupt and also delayed the building for one year. On the second start, we became the contractor and hired a couple of local pole barn carpenters to do the actual building. The cost was about 2/3 of our original contract price.

I received the final numbers from the excavator the other day. At first the new road to the building was drawn up at 10 foot wide. I asked for another estimate to include 14 foot wide and a 40 foot by 42 foot parking pad in front of the building. This raised the price approximately 1800.00 but I believe it will be worth it.
Meeting with the Morton rep on Thursday and will consider all options to balance the numbers. Not sure if Morton will work out if we cannot get the numbers down a bit. Looks like this entire job is going to tap out my funds. Still have 2000 feet of post and board fencing to do and was hoping to have enough left over to cover the cost. Might have to consider another option on the building options. We will see. I will keep you all informed and post photos of the progress. I am still looking at other builders and welcome additional suggestions.

My son recently put up a building for his 43' Ellipse and 24' matching enclosed trailer. It's 80' X 100' with a dividing wall through the middle. All floors are heated, complete dump station and 50 amp service. Has a hoist in one end and an enclosed 90' shooting range. He won't tell me what it cost, but he does let me use his shop with hoist and more snap-on tools that I could imagine.

As for mine, I just have a 14' x 45' RV port that was $8500 five years ago. To protect it from our WI winters, I park it next to our home in AZ for six months. I like my way better.
