I'm too po' just to have a barn for one thing I had to multi task it. So even if my RV gets repoed I got one hell of a back porch and lawn mower shed.

Check building codes in the place that you want to build. Many places do not allow pole-barn type building any more.

I made mine 28 x 52, with a 14 x 14 door, 18 ft ceiling. I can walk on roof, do any maintence necessary, open all slides and awning. During winter time, I am able to store my parents do inside also. Go as big as possible

Absolutely!! We use the equipment building on the farm. 42X96 with 14' high doors and 4 bays on the long side. Could have been bigger, though. Unless I put a coach longer than 40' in catty-corner, I'm limited to a 40' coach. Bummer!!! Make it as big as you can and you won't be sorry.
