That was the first phase of my project, adding height to the garage door...
Let me tell you, I had 2 garage door installers come in to tell me that it couldn't be done (for the clearance I wanted) I had to do some real DIY...

I had an SMB with Voyager roof for a while. Hot, hot, hot. Get all the crossflow you can.

Out of curiosity, what is the garage ceiling height, and the garage door height?

Herb
the ceiling is at 10'-8" high and the door is 9'-8" and that's not a standard dimension so I had to cut the last garage door panel in half (if you noticed in the picture) that complicated things a bit.

Re: Question for experienced campers

Ok so I decided to go with one window on each sides (15"W x 24"H) the fiberglass is pretty thick (a bit over 1/4") so I am not worried, but I still wont go with two, maybe if I want to add one later I will.

And two 12"W x 20"H windows, one in the rear door (passenger side) and one in the side door (closer to the rear)

You can check out my new thread :
