At least that's a valid reason. Most folks around me use their garage as a storage unit and park on the driveway or the street. Meanwhile I'm over here like, that truck cost me $25k, it's going in the garage!Loaded it up and about to make the first trip to the new place, where she'll have a driveway of her own and a garage (that she won't fit in)
A previous house (rental, I'm not rich) was built in the early 80s. Nothing special; in a subdivision on a smallish lot. I could park two F-150s side-by-side and have room to walk around them.I swear garages have never been standardized. I've had so many wonky sized garages over the years. I think the truck is too tall to fit in this one, but need to actually test it.
My last house was built in the 2000s. One side of the garage had a protrusion from a bathroom. I could park an F-150 on the other side, but the front bumper would be 1" from the wall and the rear bumper 1" from the garage door.
The side with the protrusion barely fit a Toyota Corolla.
I was driving through southern Utah and saw a subdivision where every house had an oversized garage. At least 10 feet tall and probably 30 feet wide.Since SUV’s have come along most new houses here are getting 8 foot tall openings instead of the old standard 7 foot tall ones. They must not want to have potential buyers buy elsewhere.
My previous F-250 could technically fit in my standard 7'-high garage, but it's not physically possible unless I re-slope the driveway. The driveway slopes downhill toward the garage. Due to the length of the cab and the truck, as the truck approaches the garage, either forward or reverse, the cab is more than 7' from the ground. If I had an 8' garage, or a shorter truck or cab, I could drive in no problem.
