What is missing in "Vinstream's" picture is the AC unit on top.
It is difficult to really judge a thing(the photo) if the critical
height element aint there. Now you must "imagine" an 18" to
24" AC atop.

Your Post#12 - YES.

10X10 Door for our Bambi

Reframed an existing opening to a single garage. Just added on more panel on top with a shed roof and corbels. Now it matches the rest of the house. The exisiting ceiling was 11.5' tall. Works great. Neatly out of sight but not out of mind! Protected from the elements. We remove the antenna before we store it.

Airstream Garage

Here are a couple pictures of our garage that was built for a 25' Airstream with a 10' by 10' door. Snug fit, but it works great. Insulated so no winterizing and protects it in the summer heat when we are home.

Walk around her?

Lisa and Dennis, those are two great lookin garages! Your garages are on the same side of the house as mine will be, can you open the trailer door while its in the garage and go inside the trailer, to load it for a trip, or do you pull it out to do load?

Also do either of you have an incline?

Trailer Door

Our garage is 12' wide wall to wall with a 2" slope in the floor from the back to the garage door. You can open the door to enter and exit but it will not open and fold back. We are in and out of it all the time but we always pull it out before a trip to load large items. This was an existing garage we just adjusted the door height and it worked! We did this after my husband put it in storage at a lot. We were sick with worry so he picked it up the same day! Made adjustments and we are good to go. It is nice to have it at home.

How about a door on the side of the garage?

Lisa P with your setup, you could add a carefully sized and placed door and door on the side of the garage and be able to open the trailer door all the way and load while in the garage!

Trailer door

Yes we could but that is not a problem to us. Believe me .. we are in and out of that trailer all the time. We just got it last March and 10,000 miles later the new has not worn off yet.

We are able to get in and out of the trailer in the garage, but the door will not open to be able to fold it back. We load much of what we need while in the garage. The day we leave for a trip we pull out and load the rest. Our driveway is flat except for the 10" rise in the last 25' up to the garage. We did not have much choice due to location of our driveway and lot size when we built the garage with the door on the left side. Our next garage we build when we move and downsize our home and have a larger lot will be built wider or at least the RV port will be on the right hand side. We will also build it with a much larger door at least 12' by 12'.

Dennis

LisaP,

I re-read your post with the photo, what an awesome and simple design, you took the single garage and added that short overhang, voila! Was that your own design or did you have an architect dream that up? My roof slope is the same, I may do something similar!
