Sorry I don't have a picture but I've been storing trucks, tractors and campers for 40 years. The advice I would give would be to make it large enough, at least 8 feet longer than your camper and at least 24 feet wide. Keeping equipment out of the sun is the life of them.

My shop is 48' wide x 39' deep. My 35' Montana barely fits. Center door is 14'. If I do it over again it will have four bays and be at least 50' deep. As Lynwood said, make it as big as you can; never enough room.

Make it bigger than you think you need. That way when you move up to a bigger RV, it will fit.

We put up the Monte Home two years ago. It is a pole barn BUT it has 16 foot walls and clearance inside with steel on both the inside and out. It has 6 inch space between the two walls with bat insulation between and a foot of blow-in insulation in the ceiling. It has 14 foot doors on each end so we can pull in one end and out the other. It has a fifty amp RV power on one wall, a 30 amp RV power on the other and another 30 amp outside one of the rollup doors. It also has regular power outlets every 12 ft inside and one on each side of the building outside. The building is 50 ft wide and 72 ft long. I can actually park three Montana's in the building(or two with the slides out) and a couple tow vehicles besides my compact tractor and most of the equipment for it also and still have room to move around with 9 ft shelving on one wall, 7 ft shelving partially on the other wall and a small workshop on that same wall. I don't have it heated and cooled YET but it may be in the future. LOL No water inside but it does have a outdoor faucet outside next to the main entrance door. Sorry don't have any pictures but you're invited to come out and view it in person if you like! LOL

This is what I am trying to envision on my property 48x26 but probably with 12ft open sides to back bush hog, tiller and other equipment. Thinking that the center will be 26ft with 16ft x14 door {if that's possible}. Hope to meet with builder this weekend.
Thanks to all for input. I will build it as big as I can on the space I have but I WILL NOT HAVE ANOTHER CAMPER LARGER THAN THIS ONE. LOL If anything lager comes here it will be self propelled. Thanks again... Ken
