I contracted an Amish company to build a pole-type garage, 60'X40'X 15' high (concrete floor) with a 14' high X 20' wide sliding door. That 20' wide side is for the RV. The other 20' side is for tools, lawn equipment and of course my 1932 Chevrolet; above which, I built a 20' wide X 24' long loft for DW's stuff. The total cost was just under $25,000.

So far, so good, even with my overenthusiastic son doing the banging!

Here is our garage. It is 30X50X16. The RV door is 14X9. It is insulated and has a double personnel door. It is wired for 50 amps inside and outside. I have an Aqua-glo exhaust outlet near the system exhaust on the motorhome. There is room to extend all four slides and access storage compartments. It is not heated, as we are just plain gone when it gets that cold. There is room remaining for two collector cars and the toad.

Very nice looking building and coach, mine is 24x46x16' insulated walls and door and wired, but not heated either. The building stays above freezing unless the temp. is well below freezing continuously for several days in a row, then a small electric heater set on lowest setting keeps everything safe from freezing.

Years ago there was a steel company that had a kit that was an RV port with a 1 room building attached. It was specifically designed to step from the RV to the deck. Anyone know anything about this?

This may not be what you are looking for, but they have many different styles.

Close. The deck of the building was a the step level of the RV, but these are nice. Thanks!

We are just completing a 24ft X 50ft steel exterior fully enclosed garage for our motorhome. We believe in the fully enclosed to keep critters, bugs and weather out of our 2007 Newmar Kountry Star. We spent way too much money to leave it open to the elements. I'll post a picture if you are interested. We had it built for about $25k by the Mennonites here in Crossville, TN.

When I built this house I didn't think I would ever have an RV but an RV garage is almost standard here. As it worked out when I got an RV I was ready.

What ever you choose (Pole barn, Steel Bldg, etc) let me suggest that it be wide enough to allow you to pull in and then extend your slides and awnings. This is to allow them to dryout after a trip and for ease of loading and unloading. I also suggest a FULLY enclosed building or you will be constantly fighting the mice, snakes, and other critters.

Here is a mod we did to our 40' x 60' shop building. The OHD doors are 10' high and 12' wide. We moved the third bay out around 15' to allow a 14' high OHD to be installed. It's all insulated and works great to store our 2005 Winnebago Adventurer 35A in when we are not on the road.

X2 It is also nice for doing any interior work and cleaning.

Also put a receptacle near where your shore power is for keeping batteries charged.

I thought I had posted here guess not.

We have a 44 X 48 garage built by Graber Post out of Mongtomery Indiana. Amish and Mennonite builders, great bunch of people.

Ours has not been wired yet or heating added, will be. We just had a section built out, I told hubby it wasn't big enough.
