Space needed

I am having a shop built to store my 23 foot flying cloud and need to put in a drive with enough room to turn it around so I can back it in. Does anyone know how I can figure this out become the backhoe come in to tear up the field. I tow with a Tundra from the back wheels of the trailer to the front wheels of the tow rig figure in at about 35 feet, or 41 ft total. I have some flexibility since the field now wide open. I would like to make the footprint small as possible without having to make awkward back and forth maneuvering.
Thanks, Cameron

Need a better picture of your existing layout. Is your driveway straight into the garage such that you need to make a U turn to back in? In that case it's the outside turning radius of your truck.

Another idea is to make the desired maneuver on a empty field or parking lot then measure the tire tracks.

Thanks, I’ll attempt to do a drawing and post it.

Cul de Sac?

If you have enough room, you could put in a cul de sac, with the shop opening onto the circle. You'll have to figure out what your turning radius is to make sure the circle is big enough to drive around, but if you leave the edges free of landscaping, you'll also have some room for error. One way to figure this out would be to get in with your rig before the backhoe comes, and just drive a good, tight circle in the dirt. Then measure and maybe add a couple of feet to make life easier later on.

Alternatively, I think you'd need something like a "T" shape, maybe with fillets where the arms of the T meet (to make backing and departing the turnaround part of the T easier to navigate).
