Thanks very much for the nice comments. When we were about to close the deal on the new home, myself and the seller (also a realtor and, one of the builders of the home) made an agreement to have those garage floors epoxy coated professionally. I called one of the pros that does that in the town of Havasu that was recommended and, he met us there. We discussed the colors, chips and options. I was amazed on how many colors and chips you can choose from. So, we chose the light/dark gray base color, black and white chips and, two clear coats.
At the end of the conversation, I asked him about installing "parking stripes" on the floor prior to the final two clear coats. He said, yep, not a problem.

So, I had two YELLOW, 2" wide lines, 40' long, right from the start of the epoxy, and, 3/4 of the length of the garage. They are equal distance from the side walls and when I back in, the rear tires follow right on the inside of the drivers side line. It put the motor home in the EXACT SAME SPOT each and every time. Now, if and when I need to pull it in forward, all I have to do is, put the drivers side front tire on the other line and, it will put the coach in the exact spot I need it in.

Palehorse89,
It is definitely a dream come true for us Sir. I never in my life thought I'd own anything like what you see in the picture. We moved to Havasu to pursue a better financial picture and, ended up with what you see and, a better financial picture. So, since we were starting out fresh, a BRAND NEW HOME, an RV garage that was my dream, the DW authorized me to give the go-a-head on epoxying the floor. Yahoooo!

Gordon,
Well Sir, you're close. It's an '08 level II, that is actually "Caliente Red". The strange "tint" of the picture(s) you see is because we were at the time, have one of our really beautiful orange sunsets with some SERIOUSLY colored clouds that helped present some really odd colors on the house. So, while we were outside looking at the sunset, I turned around and saw the color of the house and, ran back in a got the camera. I thought it was kind-a neat myself. But, as you noted, it does throw off true colors quite a bit.
Scott

We did the move to Havasu 14 years ago. Didn't have a RV when we had the house built but in Havasu an RV garage is a must.

I have a question...related to my future planning. For those with insulated garages living in sub-zero climates during the winter, how difficult is it to keep the garage heated to above freezing so that you don't have to winterize (since we would foresee taking several shorter trips each winter down to warmer areas, I would love to avoid having to winterize between each trip).

Thanks!

Steve

I have an attached garage to the house that is insulated. Live close to akron Ohio. With out a heater the garage was above freezing most of last winter. A small heater would have kept it above 32 all winter. Only problem I have to getting the kids to close the garage door when they get home.

I've been following this thread with a lot of interest, and now I finally have something to contribute. We started construction on a new home in the summer, and now we have started on the rv garage. The mh area is 50 ft long and 20 ft wide, the door is 14 ft high and 12 ft wide. It has a regular garage and shop space under the same roof, and an attached gym room.
