We built a 50x62 metal building for 2 horses and our trailers. Love it being insulated and setup for storage without winterizing.

But, if money weren't an issue what would your place to keep your RV ready-to-roll year round be like?

I would love to have an insulated building that would be big enough for a Diesel pusher. Roll-up doors on both ends (on backing). Kept heated above 40F. City water and shore power inside the building. Sewer connection outside (odor issues). Ok the RV has to be moved to dump tanks.

That'll allow me to play with my toy all winter!

Anyone else have an RV garage dream?
we do as above actually built 1st for my cars and motorhome only you can not work in your Rv garage so I built one attached to the house put in glass shelfs my pennzoil collection coke ,gas stuff and our collectible stuff ,beer cooler popcorn machine and others only thing wife said no work in that garage so I agreed , not rich just worked damn hard it's my pride and joy

Eagles Home, 3 sided & wide enough to park the TV beside it. 40x50 shop is to the left of the TV, cement pad leads to the back doors of the shop. The SW sun kills roofs, paint, and tires so covering vehicles from the weather is a must.

Wish I had a fully enclosed but we are hopefully moving in 5-10 years.

My preference would be the 2nd one. Able to close the doors against winter winds. Run a liquid-fueled heater to keep the place above freezing.

Those buildings couldn't be more than $250K assembled on site.

+land + concrete pad + water + sewer + electric = Not this winter

We have discussed putting up a metal building (we bought the lot next door to when we bought the the house just to ensure that we had space to expand if needed - that's where the TT is parked right now). The kit is under $10,000, but we would have to hire someone to put it up (we are too old and too lazy to attempt it ourselves), and pay for a foundation pad to be poured. Might have to get the empty lot restructured to allow it too (very small rural town and pretty loose, but there are some restrictions in place). If it was solely up to me, it would already be under way, but it needs my wife's approval too, and we don't quite have that yet.

I was looking on a few home-plan sites. A new trend is offering homes with a standard attached garage and or an attached RV garage. Other than the obvious larger garage door the RV garages don't look too bad. Some even offer built in storage areas for RVing supplies.

Wow... what size building are you considering? I got a Carolina Carport, installed, for $2300. Now, I have a gravel base rather than concrete and I don't have side/end walls... but $10K not installed?

go to Storage Buildings, Garages, Carports, Horse Barns & Gazebo Kits and price out a building. That is where I bought my Carolina from and I love it! We've had it for a year and a half... it held almost 3 feet of snow last winter, some high winds this summer and past summer with nary an issue!

Finally!! our finished RV shed. It started as a kit; all the work done by our daughter's contractor boyfriend. Kit was missing some parts that had to be manufactured by the company in Alabama. That took forever. The siding came after as an afterthought to match the old nasty vinyl of the shop. It is done other than the recycled asphalt has to be stamped down. Fellow doing it is very busy, so whenever he gets it back in the county, he will roll it. Electrician finished his part Saturday. We have 50/120-amp connections and had him install a couple of lights while he was at it. I can drive through from either side. We will give it a try this week sometime. Very busy with spring work at the farm.

My 40x56 building has 14 foot doors electricity and concrete floors. If money was no object I would insulate and heat it add water and sewer. Maybe someday when the kids are not bleeding me dry.

I am in the process of completing a 40X64 shop to store our Pinnacle in. 16 ft ceilings with R19 wall insulation, two 16X14 insulated overhead doors, radiant floor heat, 50amp for the camper, hookups for water and sewer with a full bathroom. Heating estimates for SW OH are $125-150/month in the winter keeping it a constant 65 degrees. Focus on good insulation then the efficiency of the HVAC becomes less important. Finished cost is approx $55/sq ft. The biggest impact to the cost is the gravel to make the site level. I required 1300 ton of 304 gravel to level the site.

Itís 14í x 45í. Will most likely add one more row of metal on the opposite barn side and it will still give 6í clearance. A couple small curves in the drive makes backing the RV in a small challenge. Hanging the orange golf balls makes backing it in easier and keeps it centered so the tip outs on both sides can be extended. One more golf ball hangs in the back so it is backed to the same spot every time. Have an RV plug on the barn wall.

When we bought our home in 2004, it came with an attached, fully insulated RV garage, stucco walls outside, asphalt shingle roof, inside is fully finished and textured drywall; although we didn't finally buy an RV until last year. It fits my 212QBW trailer with about 10 feet of open space behind it. It has three separate 20A circuits and a 220V 50A circuit; which I can't use. I think the previous owner had a Class C. But I can use the 20A circuits to power the converter and fridge easily and the a/c unit will run if its the only device on. We in a rural area, so we have a septic tank and the previous owner plumbed in a dump line from the tank to the garage door making dumping the black tank easy. The Sun is brutal here in the Phoenix area, so it's nice to have it parked in the shade and out of all weather and UV. The concrete floor also makes it easy to put the axles on jack stands to keep the weight off the tires when not in use and to aid in greasing the wheel bearings. I wish it would of had double doors for drive-thru use, but I got a trailer dolly that helps me to position it just right.
