Close enough. . .I'd go 15 feet then.
Even if only one slide was open then one could still go inside the RV. Two slides open would probably be "doable".

I have to bring in fill dirt and hire a foundation company to lay the slab - so no squandering allowed.
Thanks all for checking and advisement.

I went 16 wide and wish I had gone 18. 16 will accommodate open slides, but it is difficult to walk around the coach, and nearly impossible with the driver’s side living area slide extended.

I wanted to be able to open my storage compartments when it is inside. I went 20' wide. Yes is costs a little more but the convenience is worth the extra cost.

Pit is nice when you need to get under, but a PITA any other time.
You drain oil into a pan on the floor, just slide it out. Or move MH away from pan. In a pit? Lift it out without splashing on you.

i guess that would depend on the type of "pan" used. or...you could slide a piece of plywood across the pit to support the pan. or...you could get one of those drain/pans they use at the quickie oil change places. always wanted a garage with a pit.
