My “new ride” is 12’ 6” at the sides and only 2” more in the middle...rigs have a way of growing. Instead of putting a roll up door use two swinging barn doors saving/adding 2’.

Our ”New” ride...08 HR Navigator 45’. A nice upgrade after 14 years with a 04 Dynasty 42’.

When I built my "RV" port 15 years ago, I had a 40' Phaeton with two slides. I made it with 6x6 posts, flat undersided trusses and a steel roof. 14' wide, 14' high and 45' long. That was fine till we got our '13 Bus with four slides and 43' long. With 50 amp power, sewer and water, we use it for a guest cottage when company comes. We can only open the slides on one side. I wish it was 2' wider. IMHO, 14x14x45' is the minimum for an RV port. Shorter is ok if you know you will "Never" have a longer coach. Longer than needed is not a bad thing, but too short is.

My RV Port

Mine is 40x18 with 12' sides. As you can see in the pic, I had to notch the front gable end a bit to clear the Tiffin which is 12'10" at top of AC's. It clears with about 5" to spare, I'll be building swing out doors very soon.
Well worth the money to keep the new rig in good shape.

Will 12ft sides work? Cause the center will measure 14 ish....

Any insight please


I have has Bounder 33c, had 13’ sides, give plenty of room on top to stand & wash MH roof. It is 22’ wide, enough to have both slides open. It is 36’ long, Bounder is 34’, should have went for 40’.Click image for larger version

Our RV port has 12ft legs; 14.5ft center clearance. Our Winegard batwing, even when cranked up, clears the ceiling.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Also, don't forget about doing work on the Coach while it is in there. To get the wheels off the slab, you will need about 8-10" of ceiling clearance. My RVport has 10' legs(built for a smaller rig), and now that I have a 32' Bounder in there i have 4" of headroom...not enough to raise it to work on it.
