Bifold Liftstrap door puts motorhome in family garage

Marianne Riddle's Motorhome Madness is an online RV magazine that all of us should subscribe to. the best online magazine about motorhoming. "I am scanning the virtual globe for all-things motorhome and bring them to you here," Riddle says. "News, products, how-to's, inspirations and a little of my opinion." She's also on Twitter @motorhomemomma and Pinterest, @motorhome madness.

One of her latest finds is truly unique.

From, comes word of a creative solution for storing your motor home in your garage: a 12.5-foot door that looks like a traditional 8-foot residential garage door. A clever bifold liftstrap along the top of the door allows it to open high enough for the homeowner's motor home. Ordinance restrictions prompted the creative solution for the Washington state homeowner and his architect.

The mechanism makes use of two patented Schweiss liftstraps, and that company's website has even more information and photos.
