Creativity has no boundaries. Especially if cost isn’t a concern. Sometimes RV owners come up with some incredible ideas to overcome the seemingly impossible. This particular example came from Herb Korthuis of Lynden, Washington. He had a simple dream. He wanted a large garage to store his motorhome. Problem is, local ordinances prohibited a garage with a door that was taller than 8 feet. Anyone out there there that owns a larger RV knows that 8 feet just simply isnt enough. Herb needed at least 12.5 feet to stuff his rig in the garage.
So Herb thought way outside of the box. Somewhere between a Hollywood façade and Batman’s cave came the idea for a garage that could fit his motorhome with a 12.5 foot door, only thing was, it would look like a 8 foot door.

He used specialized patented technology from a company called Schweiss that specialize in bi-fold lift strap doors. Most of their products end up in airplane hangers and large agricultural buildings. In this case that innovative technology is the muscle that makes this incredible RV garage possible.
Herb Korthius had a contractor build a façade on the front of the Schwiess door frame to match the outside of his home. This RV garage was specifically designed so that the seams were nearly invisible.
“ It all goes to show you, if there’s a will, there’s a way,” said Korthuis. That is the kind of attitude all do-it-yourself’ers live by. We admire it and find this to be one of the most unique and distinct RV garage options we have seen.
If we had a few extra dollars, this is a no brainer. It looks great, has a unprecedented cool factor, and wont let the vagrants know you have a fancy RV in your garage. Not to mention you would be the envy of every RV’er on the block!
