But at the end of the summer I'm starting construction on my retirement home, on lake lots I own. Plenty of room and I've already talked to the builder about a 16 X 35 X 12 ft High detached RV garage. I can recoup the cost of construction in just over 2 years of storage fees. And I'll have full hookups and can use the RV as a second guest bedroom. Well worth it.
Hey Buddy,
You might want to consider going a touch longer on that RV garage, for resale. I'd shoot for maybe 40'-45'. That would give you tons of room to work on your rig.

Still completely envious that you'll be retiring on lake front property.

You must pay some hefty monthly storage fees to recoup in two years. I built a 24'x40'x12' garage a few years back with help of friends and I had just over $25,000 into it. Had bids of near $40,000.

Not sure what he is paying, but storage fees can be ridiculous.

I pay $180 a month and was lucky to get that spot. Its less than a mile from my house, asphalt and covered parking.

When I purchased my 5th wheel, I didn't think that finding a place to park it would be that big of a deal. I ended up calling every single RV storage facility in Las Vegas, and the only spot that was available was a 60' spot for $300 a month. I happened to swing by the one by my house and the manager told me that they had a spot reserved for a person who was supposed to move their rig in, but they hadn't contacted the storage place since they reserved it. He said they had until the next day to move in or they'd release the spot to me.

Just one of those things that worked out perfectly in my favor, that time. I'm thinking about moving to a different house, and #1 on my list is a non-HOA area with enough lot space to put in a RV parking slip. That'll free up enough money per month to buy me a bit more house.

Appfan, I get your point, but I'm not ever selling the lake place. It's being designed as 'Age in place' housing and I expect to either die here on the lake or in my RV. So resale value is my Kids problem.
As to length, I don't ever want a rig over 30ft.
