This website advertises RV Barn/house plans.

I never checked into prices.

I didn’t click on any pictures.

Makes me think he’s defunct. I’d found it years ago.

Thanks for all of your input! We do understand HOA guidelines as we currently live in a HOA restricted area, and truly appreciate the rules as it helps maintain our home value. We do believe that a small community built exclusively with RV Garages/RV Ports in far North Dallas where there is a HOA with restrictions would be successful for all of us RV/Motorhome owners. It would be built on the premise of the over-50 senior communities, but with RV garages. We are not opposed to purchasing a small residential lot and building our own RV garage home, however, this is difficult to find. If we found a residential lot in an established community, the building restrictions would most-likely not allow this type of home. Keep your suggestions coming, if you live in the North Dallas area, let us know your thoughts!

Are these attached RV garages usually climate controlled? You could set that zone to 40 degrees and never winterize again.

It's not so much the building restrictions already in place a lot of times, as much as it is the busy body NIMBY's who have nothing better to do than spew their rancid spunk at zoning or planning commission meetings. All in an attempt to dictate what you do on your property. You have to keep going further and further away from the populated madhouse areas to avoid those morons.

My RV garage has central air and heat because it was a model home, but most don't in areas that don't have freezing temps.

In most of the country a garage attached to a heated home won't generally get cold enough to require winterizing a camper parked inside during the winter.

Heating a garage in a cold weather area is much more expensive than having your RV professionally winterized and then de-winterized. And 40 degrees does not provide enough safety margin should the power go out and your heating system shuts down for even a short period of time. It is usually recommended that heat be set to a minimum of 50 degrees when leaving a home unattended in cold climes.

x2. It's simply not worth the risk to not winterize.
