Have you measured the length of the motorhomes? A few inches over the length and you'd have a problem. As it is, 1 foot only leaves 4 inches of gap between the motorhomes and the end walls and between each other.

Also, what about the height? The height of the MH is over 10'

EDIT: A quick search of shipping container dimensions shows heights of only 9' 6" external and 8' 9" internal for a high cube container. It also shows that the size is the external size and there is a reduction of 8" on the internal size.

Internal height for high cube is actually 8 5. You will need to clean the roof off and remove wheels (low profile skids) for shipping. Custom sized boxes run cost up considerably but are an option..

I have seen all kinds of things roll into and off of your basic Ro-Ro vessel, including helicopters (with the blades folded). Probably a much easier way to go.
