Default RV Shop should we insulate?

We have a 40x60x16 building to house our RV, tractor, cars, whatever you could imagine.

The price to insulate is $7000.

Question is- will I get $7000 value out of heating the building? I have never winterized my RV, so I have no idea how difficult it is.

Also, are there other benefits to keeping the building heated to 45 degrees- tires, electronics, etc?

I am just unsure if the investment to insulate and heat is worth it?

William

Where do you live? In Boise Idaho I would spend the $7k because we get down to -20 in the winter and 110 in the summer.

I would insulate purely for resale reasons if nothing else.

Exactly! There are not too many places I wouldn't consider insulating my RV storage. And much cheaper to do it while being built then later.

I agree with everyone on yes, insulate. Don't have to think twice on that one. The investment will be worth it in the long run.
