one suggestion, get the tires OFF of the cement....

any thin layer of rubber, wood, plastic or something.

my understanding is the tires interact with the concrete surface negatively.

We use RV "landing pads". They're thin plastic and not too much money. I forgot where we got them but they're a pretty good product.

Great looking building. Better looking Airstream. Looks like a twin of ours.

We rent space in a friend's pole barn to hanger our Airstream. The only down side has been a number of pigeons that also live there. But we seem to keep them at bay with one of those big plastic owls hanging from the rafter above the trailer.

I'd take a picture but we're 1,000 miles from home...in our Airstream.

Alvinator!

Excellent! Color me green

Although I literally built my home around my Airstream I hope to have another one or two in the future and a building to match!

There another great forum for garage/hanger building:
The Garage Journal

I find it very interesting as to the differences in construction, materials and concrete prices from region to region. A 10 yard truck with 3/4" roadbase is about $225.00. On the other hand, concrete is extremely high.

Great looking building. Now that you have parked it at least once, what do you think of the door width? More specifically, if you were buiding another, would you keep it at 12 ft door width or bump it up or down a bit? By the time the rear bumper enters the doorway, is the entire rig lined up straight, or are you still steering the TV? Thanks,

I would leave the width at 12 as I was still steering when the rear bumper arrives at the door. It is about 36 feet from the street curb to the door.For absolute ease, a 14 wide would be ideal but I had to compromise due to setback restricions on the width of the building. This building is in a residential area of a borough and not out in the country. One of my co-workers, a tractor trailer driver, guided me in on the first try. He said he could have put one of our 53' trailers in the garage though the tractor would have been jack-knifed because of the street width. ( I realize that the door is not high enough nor the building long enough for that!)

Great building! Maybe you could get a spare Airstream for the extra bay if no one rents
