Rejoice, it’s officially summer! Warm weather is finally here. School is out. It’s the perfect time to take your kids or grandkids on a camping trip in your RV.
There’s nothing better than camping in the great outdoors. Your adventure options are endless: biking, boating, canoeing, fishing, hiking, swimming, etc. At the end of a busy day, you and your family can relax around a blazing campfire and make s’mores.
Below, we detail the Top Five RV Storage Buildings that’ll prove you can have enough space for recreational equipment and extra amenities. Our goal is to help you design an affordableand versatile pole barn that you’ll enjoy for years.
Note: If a layout catches your eye, but you want to make a few tweaks, please let us know. All of our post-frame buildings are customizable. No cookie-cutter floor plans here! Our pole barns are built around your needs.
Top 5 RV Pole Barn Designs to Consider Building — Our Recommendations
1) Sportsmen’s Club
Do you enjoy hunting and fishing? Does your significant other like to host small get-togethers for family and friends? If so, you’ll find that this deluxe floor plan covers your needs.
The lean-to portion of the pole barn can be transformed intoliving quarters. You can fix light meals (or clean fish) for guests. There’s plenty of room to pick up a game of pool or foosball with the guys.
In between outdoor activities, you can sneak back into the private office to catch up on bookwork or emails.
It’s also an ideal location for thatman cave or she shedyou’ve always wanted. Add furniture, artwork, and shelving to create the ultimate oasis. Don’t miss the big game or the latest episode of “Real Housewives” with a flat-screen TV.
Of course, we included an open-concept garage for housing your big toys.
During the winter months, you can protect your camper, boat, or 4-wheelers from the harsh elements. Consider adding insulation and an HVAC system so you can utilize your pole barn year-round.
Who says you can’t mix work and pleasure? This building design combines an industrial-strength garage with a pleasant recreational area.
The roomy shop featureslarge overhead doorswith high clearance to accommodate heavy machinery. You can park the camper on one side and service a semi-truck or tractor on the other.
Not a hobbyist? That’s okay! You can store bikes, canoes, kayaks, and other outdoor accessories here.
On the weekends, you’ll enjoy the “game room.” This space can be used as an entertainment center for family and friends. A comfortable front porch is a welcoming place for crowd spillover. The raised floor system on the “pleasure” side makes it a snap to run plumbing and other utilities.
Indeed, this indoor RV storage building is the best of both worlds.
3) Crossover Delight
Picture this. Occasionally, you and your significant other take your horses on camping trips. Instead of building a horse barnandgarage, you’d like to combine the two structures.
Luckily, this post-frame building accommodates hobbies dear to both parties. You can pull your camper into the shop via one overhead door and horse trailer the next. There’s no need to take turns storing trailers.
Plus, there’s an office to kick back and relax after a long day’s work. Again, you should add an interior finish and comfy furnishings to give it that “homey” feeling. Especially if you plan on spending a lot of time there.
The building’s backside features a covered porch for plants, patio furniture, and a fire pit – great for summer gatherings.
However, you can use the shaded space as a cooling spot for your horses. The choice is yours.
4) Liberty Summons
We understand that not everyone owns a large motorhome, fifth-wheel, or toy hauler. A simple pop-up or travel trailer camps just as well as the bigger (albeit more expensive) options.
As a result, you won’t need as big of a pole barn to store your possessions.
Imagine the Liberty Summons storage building in the corner of your backyard. It complements your house, right down to the matching shingles and color scheme.
Outside, the inset porch is a shady place to spend a lazy summer evening. Sit in a wooden rocking chair with a cold glass of sweet tea and watch the children (or grandchildren) ride ATVs.
Inside, you’ll appreciate the workshop and out-of-sight storage room. The garage features overhead doors for moving vehicles in and out. A sliding door in the back provides ample room for a camper, gator, or utility tractor.
This storage unit may just become the favorite part of your property. In some cases, it may increase your resale value (should you decide to move). Find out for yourself!
5) Backyard Beaut
Lastly, this floor plan is one of our all-time customer favorites.
The welcoming front porch serves as a statement piece. It’s an excellent opportunity to add little decorative touches (e.g., a bench, hanging plants, and potted flowers).
