342: RV DOOR

1

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?

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). We are concerned with having a sagging open door and flex problems since this door may be a 3000 lbs or more. If you can provide: - Vertical and horizontal details (since we are tight in space we need to fully understand how this work) - Price - Weight - General RV Door information Please contact me as soon as possible

Looking for similar Schweiss RV door as Herb Korthuis of Lynden, Washington, 16 foot tall and 12 feet wide. I'm also facing local homeowner restrictions that the Schweiss bifold RV door design will alleviate.

We are working on a new project and will need some Schweiss bifold 14x16 doors for RV entrances to RV self storage units. We are looking for pricing for a Hangar folding door with liftstraps that also has an individual walk in door as you have with a door that comes out and up, but doesn't fold. Can you make that type? .

I live in a very restricted community and want to build an RV garage with Schweiss bifold doors that meet or exceed local zoning regulations. I would like to get some information on your bifold doors, including whether they meet Florida building codes. Any information you might provide will be appreciated. Thank you.
