So today, I went to a steel garage/carport dealer and priced out a garage for The Beast.

In a few days, I will be putting down a down payment for the garage and in about 8 weeks after that, the unit will be built on the extra acre. I chose the heavier 12 gauge over the 14 gauge wall sheeting. This will better resist the winds we get out here. They dealer provides a warranty against winds up to 90 m.p.h. (we get winds of around 50 m.p.h.). It will be barn red (to compliment the house) with white trim.
Most of the residents here have steel sheds, workshops, barns and garages. Mine will just be another one of them.
Having the RV housed in a steel garage will prolong its life and exterior finishes on the cab's paint and the fiberglass as well as the tires.
