Unicorn Driver, good luck on your build in the spring.

I agree on going deep as you can on the length, especially since you are width limited. I went 48' deep on my 20' wide garage. Only have a 35' 5er here, but who knows one day I may get a longer DP. Probably should've went 60'.

And I agree with the jacwjames on plumbing with appropriate utilities. In addition to 50A FHU for my RV, I also had the back corner of the garage plumbed for a full bath. Adds value in the event you ever sell. Plus, I may actually finish out the full bath myself one day.

Fully agree, if you are building from scratch, I would include full hookups, probably a 30 Amp and a 50 Amp, plus water/sewer. That would allow not only for anything you might want to do, but also looks great for resale.

The biggest issues I would have would be approach/departure routes. I would love a garage that had a pull through with doors on each end, but that takes a lot of real estate and concrete. Having a ramp that allows you to turn the RV around to back in (Motor Home or Travel Trailer) really adds to the value.

I know, we are really spending your money, but when you are dreaming...

Same here. To the O.P.: Build it as wide as you have space for, especially since you want to park two vehicles side by side. You will be glad you did. When you are building, the extra cost to go wider or longer is not that major compared to the base cost, but the extra space is priceless. Many people wish they had built larger, but there are very few who think they built too large.

Thanks,

I am definitely going to put 50 and 30 amp inp. Unfortunately the septic tank is in the other side of house but will be able to run a 1 inch hose to the clean out.

That was a typo, I left it too late to edit.

It's rare to have someone say that they built their storage building too big. So think about how big you think you will ever want and then add some more.

Our RV garage is 50x40 with (2) 16ft doors. Ceiling is 16ft, full hook up and heated. I wish it was 55 deep instead of 50 because we almost touch on both ends with the tow bar attached. A couple years later we added another 16x50 on the side.
