I have to agree with the others here. 14' door.. And, for the same reason others have said, you don't know what your next RV will be. The newer Class A's are running around 13' to 13.5' tall. And the large 5th wheels approach that height.

Best to design and build to the largest sizes and then you will have some room to work around your RV.

I would do 16'. The cost difference wouldn't be much.

All I can say is don't make the mistake I did. I had a metal shed built to house my bumper pull TT. I had enough sense to install wiring for a potential change to a 50amp trailer BUT I failed to consider how much taller a 5th wheel would be. The 5th wheel wouldn't fit so I had two choices: 1). change nothing and let the trailer sit outside and the shed sit empty or 2.) have the shed "tallerized" at a cost of about 2/3s the original shed cost. I picked #2 and spent the money but I shudda, wouldda, couldda built it tall enough in the 1st place!

Actually if you never plan to have a 5th wheel 12' garage doors will be fine. I wanted regular garage doors to match my home and include garage door openers. A 12' garage door will only give you 11'9" or so clearance though. As others have stated you can always go bigger but it's a matter of preference. I just upgraded my trailer and my only limit was length. Went with a 30' length but might have gone with something longer if it would fit without taking out my bench at end. Mine was built 28X38 and I might have went a few foot longer but didn't want to block our view. Think about width also, you might want to open the slides in the garage.
