Length is critical. Even though you may have plenty of room for your current RV what happens when you just have to have the one that's a foot longer than your garage. Keep this in mind for resale purposes too.

Length is but so is height which is what I keep telling builders that think a 12' high door is just great for most any RV. I tell them that most RV are over 12' and they should only do 14' tall doors.

As far as width builders never think about anyone wanting to open the slides to empty, clean and reload the RV. That works if you have a long driveway but most don't. Bottom line is nothing less than 18'x50'x16' with a 12'x14' door. One thing I'd do is put a 12'x7' or 12'x8' door in the back so you can work on the back of a DP plus get into your back yard with just about any equipment you'd ever want to use. Nice thing about using a 7' door in the rear is that it goes straight up the wall and never has to curve over the coach.

If your land is large enough then you can put full height doors on each end so you can just drive through.

We're 45x16x16 any our door is 14x14. If we had to do it over again we would do at least 50' deep and between 18' to 20' wide. But we're still able to work with what we have.

I have found the 52 foot deep and 42 wide is perfect with 2 14x14 doors. The 16 foot walls allow me to get on top of the coach while indoors. I have 6 feet of room between the side of the coach and inside wall on the sides and at least that in front and back as well. The coach is 12'10". Build it bigger than you need if possible.

So the concrete has been placed, and we have some exterior lights. Slow but sure. The rest of the driveway will be pavers to the street.

Looks good h. games. I hope your construction doesn't take as long as mine has. But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Here is a photo with the pavers and gates now placed. That driveway looks really long in this photo. The rv garage is now pretty much done, but the house has a ways to go, so the rv garage is full of construction paraphernalia. So it will still be awhile before I can actually put the moho in there. I may take the moho there this weekend to exercise it and see how well it handles the slope.

Hope your construction goes well. We had a few delays but the building turned out very nice. You will like the quality of the Morton building.

Sorry I am a little late to the party. We bought this place specifically because of the 14' door and 71' of concrete behind it.

That looks like a nice setup Dave, with a nice straight and short path to the garage door. And 71 feet of garage length is awesome. I took my moho up to my new driveway today and drove up to the garage door. It will definitely take some practice for me to get proficient backing out of that space, but I'm ready to practice!
