RV Garage Plans for your Home Away from Home - The Garage Plan Shop

RV Garage Plan 028G-0048RV garage plans, sometimes referred to as motor home or motor coach garage, are designed to provide shelter and storage for an RV, camper or motor home when it isn’t on the road. An RV garage has a few distinguishing characteristics when compared to a standard garage plan. RV garages feature at least one bay with an extra tall overhead door, a ceiling that is taller than average, an elevated roofline and an extra deep bay accommodating the height and length of the motor home. RV garages can consist of one single, stand-alone bay or the RV bay might be attached to another usable space such as a two-car garage, ideal for the everyday family vehicles, or a workshop making them even more practical and useful. Many RV garage floor plans include special features such as a half bath, loft, drive-thru bay or workbench. From a single RV bay to a 2-car or 3-car garage with attached RV stall, garage plans with RV storage are available in a wide range of sizes and styles making it easy to find the right one to fit your lot and complement your home.

 

Sometimes RV garage plans are not used for RV storage at all. While they are generally designed for storing a recreational vehicle, the RV bay is also well suited for auto mechanics who’d like to install an auto lift for car maintenance. Also, RV garage plans make a great alternative for a boat storage garage especially when it come to storing and protecting larger boats.

 

Practical and functional, RV garage designs often fit neatly in the side yard or backyard and are sure to keep your home away from home safe when you aren’t traveling. Take some time to browse our collection of RV garage plans to find the right one to suit your needs.

Practical Drive-Thru Garage Plans – The Garage Plan Shop

Drive-Thru Garage Plan 010G-0007Drive-thru garage plans are detached garage plans designed for the storage of one or more cars. Unlike most traditional garages, these special floor plans features at least one garage door at the front of the structure and one garage door at the back allowing cars and other vehicles to diver completely thru the garage. There are many conveniences with these types of garages. For example, it may be easier to pull straight thru the garage when pulling a boat or trailer rather than trying to back it in or out of the garage. In other cases, many find it is convenient to access the kids’ bikes and toys or even the riding mower without having to move the cars or risk dents and scratches in their doors. With a drive-thru garage, the possibilities are endless when considering the convenience of storing and accessing automobiles, ATVS, a golf cart, lawn and garden tools or other equipment. Some drive-thru garage plans incorporate thoughtful extras like a loft, workshop, storage area, extra tall ceilings, or full or half bath.

 

These designs are available in a fabulous array of sizes and styles including single-story and two-story floor plans. There are many different styles to choose from as well, from traditional to country offering plenty of looks to complement your home. Various rooflines and garage door combinations further enhance the selection and offer flexibility.

 

Take some time to browse the drive-thru garage plans and other designs at The Garage Plan Shop.
