How high is the door? The 10' width is tight but you can do it.
Measure the width of your rig with the mirrors folded or retracted.

Might need to fold in the mirrors but you will fit with a few inches to spare on each side.

At 14' high you're good to go. Just watch the mirrors and go slow.
Measure the height of your RV just to make sure, You should not have a problem.

At 14 feet you need to be “watching” all the time. Lord, give me 10 feet width minimum all the time and I will be happy.

10’ is tight but doable. Just take your time and watch your mirrors as others have suggested. I have backed my RV’s into many storage buildings over the years and the inside of the building is very dark compared to outdoors so it is very helpful to have a spotter and a set of portable radios.

ok.

- does the roll up door roll all the way past the upper frame of the door opening or dies it hang down a bit below the door opening?
- is there anything hanging from the ceiling that falls below the height of the opening?
- how deep is the building? will the RV fit inside with the dorr closed?
- how wide is the building interior? will you be able to get out of the RV and exit the building?

Yes it will. I do it 30 times a year.. It's tight. Hard part of going in a building is its like a black hole until your mirrors are in. I have under an inch on each side with the weather stripping

Go slow
