New Building for 5er!!!

Well, after a year of clearing trees, digging stumps, leveling, and depleting my savings we now are the proud owners of a 60x50 enclosed building insulated with concrete floor.

Tonight was the first time we have been able to put the camper in there...My wife had a few laughs watching me back up and forward 50 times to get it lined up...I hope I get better at that!!

In the spring we plan to get electrical run to it with lights and 50 amp hookups for mine, my brothers, and my fathers campers.

I would live to have a building just half that size. That's the best thing you can do for that home on wheels.

That's really nice. Perfect. Your RV will last decades when stored in a facility like that. A few years ago I camped next to a guy who has a 15 year old class C built on a Dodge chassis, it looked new. He was a farmer and had stored it indoors since new and the entire family used it.

I've kept my last two campers in this building owned by a friend of mine. Wax them once a year and they always look new.

Yeah, sure thing..just let me know if you want any specific pictures of anything. We set this up so we have drains in the floor to wash them inside and we can have the slides out and still have 2-3 feet between the units :-)

I am so happy to have it in there now. Next weekend I am going to be pressure washing and waxing the camper...

Power and plumbing runs are always of interest.

Also wondering if going with 20 foot ceilings is appreciably more money to have built over a 14 foot building . It would be nice to be able to stand up while servicing]washing the roof of the RV.
