how long are those 6X6 and how deep in the ground are they?
I plan to start a shed just like this in the spring.
And as others have said it looks great.

The 6x's are 14'. They are sitting on P.T. 2x8's . The area is pretty swampy and I had cobbles(average 6" round rocks) dumped in with an item 4 skin over them. I didnt want to try any footings there. Sauna tubes and the like. I thought they might sink eventually. So I thought a "floating" settup would be better. Problem with that is you rely soley on diagonal bracing to keep it sturdy. And the bracing infringes on your RV room. Thats one of the reasons I made it a bit bigger than the trailer, or a possible future motorhome. It seems a pretty good compromise with the bracing the size they are. I have to really shake it hard to get it to move. I left it partially open on the sides to cut down wind profile and save a little $. I buried 2x4's accross from one side to the other. I was originally going to measure where the trailer wheels would be and have a couple of 2x8's going across right there to take advantage of the trailer weight. But decided it probably wasnt needed.
