Before you think too heavily on this, I'd recommend you contact your local building department (town hall or similar) to find out if there are any restrictions on what you can build. There may be limits on square footage or height of a garage, as well as requirements on where it is placed on your property.

Please give me a little bit of credit for having a brain.
As a school of architecture dropout I do understand the concept of "elevation", as in the requested photo will be the "rear" or "west" elevation of my house/yard/existing storage building.
I do also realize that a building permit will be required.
What's up with people stating the obvious?
While y'all are at it, let me also go ahead and say yes, I know my property tax will go up.

Never thought otherwise. Never knew you studied architecture, either. So when 99 ALY 33 asked for elevation photos, and you replied that it's flat where you live, I put two and two together, and came up with 17.

Anyone who has been around the Forums at least as long as I've been here should already know that "Thoughtless" and "Insensitive" are my noms de plume judging from my many other social gaffes. I don't mean any offense by my overbearing pedantic attitude, but if you took offense, then I do apologize.

I had a shed custom built for my 28' 2012 Intl. (same as your trailer). I had the architect design it to fit with an adjacent pool house. It's 32 feet long, 12' wide and 11' high. Size had much to do with available land. It is not fully enclosed (as you'll see from the pictures)...and I did this intentionally. I have a concrete driveway and pad for it. Quite a challenge to back it up around 60' of driveway, but it is eminently doable. PM me if you have specific questions.

My garage is 35x40, and would fit my 31' perfectly - if only the A/C cleared the top of the door.

What is the door height? 9'?

I was actually responding to the OP, not you. And as a practicing Architect, I will always try to offer suggestions to help guide another person and will not presume to assume what they know (or don't). If trying to be helpful is going to be met with rudeness, I make a note of it and be sure not to respond to that person again.

I have a 14 foot ceiling for mine, its nice to be able to get on top of the trailer to clean the ac unit without doing it on your belly. It doesn't cost much more to go a bit taller.

I do my cleaning outside... FWIW to go 2' taller on my barn was going to cost $6,000

Well, I don't have a barn, (I should have said pole barn), but at the time of building it was only a couple of hundred dollars more, now a wood frame building, yes it would be a considerable cost to go a extra 2 foot or so.

First step to Airstream shelter has been completed.
The tree man came and removed/trimmed some trees.
A huge old oak at the southeast corner (front driveway) was trimmed. Now I can park my pickup or Airstream there.
Three River Birches at northeast corner trimmed- no bearing on Airstream garage, just looks much nicer.
A willow on the north side of the house was trimmed- no bearing on Airstream garage, but the willow is now off the house and roof.
A Crepe Myrtle on the north side was trimmed- no bearing on Airstream garage, but it looks nice.
A Cherry Laurel on the southwest corner (access from the alley) was cut down to the ground. This was the main one that needed to go for the Airstream garage.
I had previously cut down on Oak on the south side (rear) that was in the way of the airstream garage and interfering with power lines.
I had previously trimmed a Holly at the southwest corner of the house- no bearing on Airstream garage, but looks nicer and got it off the house/roof.
When I first came here in 2007 I removed a "wall" of trees and vegetation from the west (rear) to make room for my current workshop/storage shed built in 2008- $7,200 financed 12 months no interest $600 a month- hope to hit that price point/financing with the Airstream shelter
Less berries. Less birds. Less birds eating berries and pooping berries on my pickup and trailer. Less roosting habitat for the masses of migrating blackbirds in the spring. Less leaves to have to pick up in the fall and winter. Less likelihood of a tree limb falling on my house, vehicles, or trailer.
Also, all,trees that could have interfered with power/cable/telephone lines are gone.
In the next week or two I will start the consulting/design/build process. I want it as big as it can be in the space I have. Hoping for at least 18x36 on an angle like a campsite. I tried backing the trailer in at the angle I want the shed to be. I was able to back in with one shot and no correcting. My wife and I have been back there walking it off, measuring, surveying.
I now have courtesy parking on the east (front) with 50 amp electric, water, and sewer if anyone is ever in the area and wants to stay overnight. Had to get that oak trimmed before I advertised courtesy parking.
The neighbor to the south has been doing a lot of yard work, as well. The next 2 neighbors to the south and all the neighbors to the north keep their yards manicured. Our little subdivision still looks nice. Gives me a sense of pride when I pull up in the drive after a long day at work.

This is where the Airstream shelter will be. It will be at a similar angle, maybe a little more to the right. That tree on the left is gone and the others have been trimmed.Click image for larger version

I have 50' from the house to the street. There may be only 40-45' from the house to the alley.

This is what I got instead of an Airstream garage.
Maybe next year.
When I get it, the dimensions will be 24' wide by 41' long with 10' walls off white with green trim-
