342: RV DOOR

1

Just looking for approximately the cost for a 12’ 14 R V garage door bifold. Can change size if there is a standard size to use. Door height is 16 ft.

2

I am looking for information about one of your RV bifold garage doors that allows it to blend in better with the architecture of the home, just like you picture in your Must See Photos website section.

3

I saw the RV bifold strap door from Washington State and was interested in a cost for something along those lines to match our one story house and be okayed by our HOA. 14 wide by 18 tall or 16 tall. We have a Class C RV and it's stored out of state. Also, Fl has hurricanes and it would need to be up to Miami Hurricane wind strength code door. If we could have our RV at home, that would be great. We're looking for price and information at this time. Please email me quote or appx price for a door. Thanks Beth

Want a "ball park" quote for bifold strap RV doors for 2 ends of a rv garage. It is in planning stage and opening will be 24'wide and 14' tall. Just looking at options

I have a client that is interested in a 12W x 14H bifold door for a RV garage addition Im adding to his home. I would like to hang an 18" "eyebrow" roof over the center of the upper panel to conceal the height of door. Ive seen a photo attributed to you on the Schweiss Doors Must See Photo website titled "Korthuis RV Garage door". Please give me a call to discuss specs and Price.

Hello! Today, I saw your bifold RV garage door for the Hare project in St. Paul on the Great Ideas YouTube channel. I'm building a new home in Prescott, AZ, that will include a 10ft wide by 12ft tall RV garage opening (Class B RV only). The possibility of incorporating a bifold liftstrap door that skirts around zoning restrictions in a manner similar to the Hare project is intriguing. We are just starting the construction phase, but likely won't be ready to install the RV garage doors for 6 months or so. I have an architect and a general contractor, but before I get them involved, I hope to get a rough, ballpark estimate of cost since my budget is pretty well set. I know there may be a number of options or other considerations that may affect the final cost, but if the ballpark cost is way above my budget, then there is no need to pursue this. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. Cheers, Gordon.

I am working on a detached garage located in a neighborhood in Katy TX that has restriction in garage size. Per the HOA, the largest door that can be placed is a standard 7' x 16' garage door. The desire is to design this opening to one day accommodate a large boat or RV exactly the way your Schweiss website showed on Washington and Minnesota RV engineered doors. The face of the garage is brick to match the existing structure, looking for info on if you have see anyone use your bifold garage doors with a brick veneer to match the rest of the structure

I am contemplating doing a bifold door on a RV garage similar to the photos you have on your website of the hidden Minnesota and Washington doors used to get around the zoning restrictions. 12' wide. Need 14' clear hight. I am looking for a ballpark price. Call if you need to.

We need a 12'wide x 14'high bifold door for our RV Garage. How much would that cost roughly? We live in Georgia south of Atlanta. Would like for it to match the house garage door as well, just like you have pictured on your Washington State RV door on your website. That is a normal two car opening about 8.5 feet high I guess. Price only with lift straps, no cables.

Planning attached 20x40 RV garage with scissor trusses on concrete floor. I saw on the Schweiss Door website a very nice disguised bifold as single door for home owners association approval in Minnesota and another in Washington. I’d like a quote for a steel door 12 X 15 (13’ opening clearance). Also, if you have framing specs I can share with my architect. Thanks Mark

11

Do you have a dealer in Northwest Arkansas, Fayetteville/Bentonville area? I would like to get a price estimate on a bifold liftstrap hidden RV door. We will be building just after July of 2021 but have started the preliminary planning stage. We would like the same rv storage setup that is shown on the house featured on your Schweiss Doors Must See Photo website story.

12

Hi... I see you figured out how to get around zoning restrictions on residential garage doors? I want a 12'-13' RV door for my house but code only allows an 11' door (they could even say they want 9'). Let me know the cost and what it will involve.

13

Looking for door for RV that when closed, from the outside, looks like a regular garage door in size... We saw this on the Schweiss Doors website: 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 Schweiss Doors innovative nature and find this to be one of the most unique and distinct RV garage options we have seen.

Aloha, Wondering how much a "hidden" bifold door would cost for my RV carport. Opening is 18' wide and 14' high. but needs to look no higher than 8' tall to meet local zoning restrictions. I am open to a diy kit with sourcing any materials locally to save on shipping since I am here in HI. I may be able to freight foward from CA as well if any easier or cost effective. Mahalo, Bronson

15

I want a disguised RVgarage door just like you built for the guys in Washington and Minnesota as pictured in your Must See Photo section. The bifold look good. Do you work through local companies or design on sit and ship/install?

16

Interested in a 16’ tall by 12’ wide RV door.. . just like the couple bifold RV doors you feature on your Schweiss Doors Must See Photos. Would you have a ball park figure for this style of Bifold RV door that allows RV owners to skirt around strict zoning requirements? What is you lead time on orders. I'd like to have you come to Nebraska to do the install.

17

This is a residential application requiring a minimum 12' clear opening for an RV/camper on a detached garage that is being designed. The municipality has a 10' maximum overhead door height without requiring a special use permit. Your product may help me deal those requirements as shown on two RV doors that were built by Schweiss to overcome city zoning restrictions. The goal would be to have the bottom 8' of door be white metal to match overheard doors on the house and the top portion match the siding on the structure. Thanks much

We have a client interested in the Bi-fold RV Garage door. Looking for a price and details on design, backup system and install.

28

Building a large garage and want to make a hidden RV garage bifold door as well as possibly using bifold strap doors to open game room to outside porch

29

Looking to fit a travel trailer into a garage, similar to the Korthuis Home in Lynden, Wa. that receives so much traffic on the Schweiss Doors Must See Photo website. The trailer has a total height of 131" and is 8' wide. It would need to match a regular residential door to it's left (looking at the front elevation of the house). I'm just looking at ballpark numbers at this moment to get a sense of the scale of this cost versus demolishing a foundation and pouring a new one. Your Schweiss RV door is an architectural work of art. Cheers

30

I would like to get more information for a hydraulic door for an RV garage. 14Wx15' to be installed near Austin Tx. I want this to be a designer door that will get past area codes restricting door sizes like the ones you did in Minnesota and Washington.

31

Working on looking at options for a new Shop for my home, I'm still in the investigation stage. Looking at maybe a 40 X 60 building and need a clear span of 14 feet for the 5th wheel RV, one of the issues on the site is a narrow street to make the turn I have been debating on having a wide RV bifold garage door like 16 wide to help make it easier to back in. But now I'm thinking bifold liftstrap RV door. Thinking maybe a 20 or 25 foot wide. I understand finishes ETC can really impact cost but can I get a general idea on costs? Also what sort of clearance would I need to open the door? On the outside? Thinking parking in front of the shop and the needs there.

32

I'm looking to build an RV garage and was doing some searching for a suitable RV bifold garage door. I really like the idea of your bi-fold door and would like to get some more information on pricing for a travel-trailer/5th wheel sized opening. At this point I'm at the information gathering phase of the project and am not yet ready to purchase. I'm just trying to get my ducks in a row . . . and to find out how much the ducks cost! :) Finally, do you have a partner reseller in the Atlanta area? Whit

33

Beginning research on these type of bifold RV doors to house a motorhome. Will likely be in a wood construction, however I'm going to explore the steel structure and/or pole building as options. Thank you for the information.

34

We are building a home in Southwest Florida that will have an RV garage. Very interested in disguising the RVgarage door similar to that of others you have done in Minnesota and Washington. Interested in details of your door and to understand how that could be purchased and installed in our area of FL.

35

Dear Sir. I am building a garage and have a 12x12 garage door opening. I am considering a vertical bifold. How much useable vertical space is there. I have an rv that needs 11 ft. 4 inches. I would like it to look like a barn door. Can i buy parts from you and put the panels on myself? Thanks. Tom Beaton

36

I'm in the process of planning for a new RV bifold  door install on my hangar. I am a bit flexible on size yet because I do not have the outer frame yet, but I am looking at about 40'-42' wide by 18'-15' tall for the opening. I am open to a variety of door types (including dual roll-ups with removable center track or side sliding, but I prefer to avoid this as it requires getting out to remove the track). I do want automatic (remote) operating, plus maybe a man-door. At this point, I am trying to get an idea of what it will cost to get a bifold RV hangar type door. I am somewhat limited in funds, so cost will have a lot of weight in my decision making. I am also open to your Build-Your-Own-Door kit. I know that you cannot offer a contractual quote estimate with such limited information, but can you give me a little bit of suggestion or rough estimate of various door prices? 

37

I have a 12 ft. high x 16 ft. wide sectional RV door now and need to increase the height to 14' 10" for a motor home we plan to buy. There is a 14 x 14 x 3/4" I beam 11" from ether side of the door frame that I plan to attach the new door frame to and a 8/14 header to attach the top to. Can this RV door be insulated and equipped with bifold auto latches and remote opener?

38

My customer is building a new RV garage. Very interested in your bifold RV doors that meet zoning restrictions. We have questions. I'm thinking about a bifold door system.  Are bifold doors outside surface mounted? And how much over head height do we loose? Looking for a 19' clearance under door. Please email me a info PAC in regards Thank you happy holidays Jeremy

Hello, I am looking at the Schweiss bifold and hydraulic doors for a residential application very similar to the residential RV bifold zoning restricted Schweiss bifold door in Lynden, WA that you have featured on your website. I am looking for a 10' tall by 11' ft wide bifold or hydraulic door that I can mount a std size residential garage door front (7'6" x 9 or 10' wide) surrounded by wood trim and cedar siding to match my house. I would likely prefer the bifold and assume that is the less expensive option. However, I've requested below quotes on both the hydraulic and bifold to see what the cost difference is and which is actually the less costly option. My only other question for planning purposes is what is the typically lead time on these doors from time of order placement? Thanks.

I need to get some infomation on either a hydralic door or bi-fold door for a residential RVgarage door. the size of the door is fairly large - its for one RV and garage and height is 17' . I would like to save headroom inside the garage so this seems like the bifold RV garage door is the best option, since garage has high ceiling. thank you

Hi, We are trying to get quotations as well as product information for a (1) single door RV garage for a contemporary house in CT: - 29 feet wide by 19 feet high opening (aprox) - Wood lattice as outside finish - Steel columns in consideration (wood for now).
