Shouldn't be an issue after you do it a few times.

Back up until it sounds expensive. Go slow and good luck. Must be nice to have an indoor space. Enjoy it.

I agree the RV is 8 1/2 foot wide save for the mirrors might go out to 9 or a bit more. Should be no problem with a 10 foot wide door.. BUT HEIGHT... That's the issue

True story: The Michigan state police give a Trooper a Safe Driving award if he goes long enough without denting anything.. I was reading the news on the award.
The contestant While exiting the Headquarters Garage. Did strike the HEADER of the door And POOF went his award eligibility for another 4 years. (paraphrased).

We figured out how he did it.. Can you guess? (and no he did not pull a wheelie).


Home is where I park it.

Leave enough room on the side with the door so that you can get out 0f the RV.
I think that I would pull in nose first. It's easier to back into daylight than a black hole. It would also minimize exhaust fumes.

I used to BACK our 28' Class C (widebody) through a 10' door all the time (and the driveway was downhill and twisty). I would back up until the mirrors almost touched the door frame; then I'd fold them in. Once clear of the door frame, I'd open the driver's side mirror again, and finish backing in. Yes, it's hard to see inside the building compared to the bright outdoors light, so I added reflectors on the driver's side polebarn posts at the right height to be illuminated by the taillights. You just need to be patient is all.
