RV Garage

I've searched and searched but I can't find a thread about garages. If there is one please direct me to it. If not, this might be the start of something useful.

DW and I are looking for ideas and would like to see some examles. We have a 30' x 40' x 10' existing pole building and plan on building an attatchment for the RV. Going with a 18' x 40' x 16'.....anyone willing to post a picture of your residential RV garage? We'd love to see 'em.

This is what we have to work with.

40' isn't enough for a 35'. You'll need room to walk front & rear then there's the door mechanism, a hitch, etc... We did a 45' with a 40' MH and it is "crowded".

That's the kinda info I'm looking for....We marked the garage out and then I backed the RV into the space. It seemed to be big enough at the time. We may go to 42'-44' long depending on the extra cost. Thanks for the input.

lesson learned was to ensure that you build it for the future. i initially built mine for my 87 Bounder, but when i purchased a new 25 foot Thor, had to raise the door opening up to 13 feet to ensure the coach would clear.

We built the biggest one that the Town would allow in 2010. It is 46' 10.5" x 32'. I had a lot of trouble finding someone who could fit a 12'x14" door in the end and still stay under 20" maximum height.



The building looks a lot better than this picture because the landscaping is more mature but this is the way that it looked right after construction
