Post I Want Pictures of RV Storage Sheds/Buildings

Because it's cold out, I want to think of happy things. We're thinking of moving in a year or two out to the "country" (as much as you can and still be in the suburbs of Baltimore and Washington) where we can put up a pole building/storage shed for the camper. I've got some ideas in mind of what I'm after:

- 60' long so that the 42' FW and truck can be hitched and still inside
- tall enough to work on top of the FW
- 14' (tall) x 12' (wide) doors on both ends for a pull-thru
- a second extra-wide door so the truck could be parked in it's own spot instead (it's one of our two vehicles and get driving fairly regularly)
- wide enough inside space so that all slides can be deployed (we have curb and driver's side slides)
- water + electric (50amp) hookups
- sewer hookup would be ideal, but I could make use of a macerator and pump the stuff somewhere (though, if that's the route I go - I'd like to hard-plumb all of the fittings so it wouldn't be a hose running across the yard)

I was thinking of also maybe getting crazy and instead of the 2nd "extra wide" door, making it another 14' x 12' door so that someone else with a FW/TT could park there. BUT, the reality of it actually getting used is pretty slim to none.

I also have pretty limited tools and workshop needs that I'd like to support - band saw, work benches, etc. I've built a couple of kayaks and would love to get back into that.

I'd love to see what buildings/pictures you all have done. Share!

Here's one of the Ag Building I had in Yuma, AZ. Have the same building here in Chino Valley, AZ but no pictures. Actually I do have some pictures, but can't find them. LOL

SORRY. Couldn't get the picture to post, but if you look at my profile "Chino Valley" album, the picture is there.

RodeoGeorge, looks good!


It's a little more utilitarian outside than I'm looking. I'm thinking of running a porch off one end so that we have a seating area/whatnot.

Out of curiosity- how long is your camper (end to end) and how big is your building? How tall is it inside? And... what else do you use the building for?

Storing inside in colder climates opens you up to mice. The majority of my friends have pulled their campers from pole barns and inside storage for just that reason...

It 40x32. The down side it only has one 14 foot door. Really would be nice to have a 2 doors or bays if you will. I basically use it for,storage trailer, lawn mower tractor small little work bench area

Here's what happens,when years ago, you tell yourself "we are never going to own a 5th wheel over 30 ft"

You can check out the picture of our barn/RV storage building in my profile album. I had built a 20X40 horse barn when the kids were little . It was of pole construction. I pulled all the pole up on one side and widened it and also changed the roof pitch. These modifications made the space higher and wider . I didn't put a door on it but rather extended the side the Georgetown is parked in by 8'. That extension provides enough space to keep the Colorado snow at bay. I haven't had rodent issues. When we want to use our rig when we need that extra space when we have guests we move it up to the house where we have a 50 amp service. Eventually I will need to upgrade the access road to the barn since getting the RV out of the barn in wet or snowy situations in our adobe soil is sketchy at best.

Ouch! Did you end up extending the building?

I'm already at a 42' FW so going longer will put me into a carny trailer. I like to believe that won't happen! But, I'm also thinking I'd like the space long enough for the truck and camper (58 1/2' hooked up), so I'll have room to spare.

Thanks for the pictures.

Looks good and it's definitely economical. My "second Mom" has gotten after me that the RV could be an indication when we're out of town (ie- being a clue for thieves to break into our house). Shrugs- she's a worrier, but we love her.

fishing

You would love it here then..also, Carter's Lake near by is the deepest and cleanest lake you will ever see..There are not home anywhere on or around the lake..such a joy not to see butts, cans, bottles or wrappers floating in the water....think you could almost drink the water right out of it...
