Garage shelves with trailer!

As I mentioned, I made the garage shelves so that they were no wider than the doors to the garage. The front door is 9 foot carriage doors (a remodel) and the back is the original 8 foot lift door. The plan was to be able to back the trailer up to the back door. Reasoning two-fold: storage in front of it in the winter would be more accessible from the front doors, and I could "camp" or at least visit it with a nice view. So today I backed it in. (Note it is pretty tight!)

Turns out the open back door seen through the shelves really helps with backing as I have the guidelines I need in terms of light coming on either side of the trailer. It was much easier than before even though the space is now tighter once I'm in.

Boy that is close, not an inch to spare. I guess you realize now you can not upgrade to a bigger Escape.........

I can do a 17a or b but it wouldn't line up so perfectly with the back of the garage and the mudroom door. (And did I mention that if I backed an inch farther I would be stuck in the truck?) Garage is long and high enough for a 17.

Which is good because I won't be tempted to go any bigger if I do ever upgrade.
