I paid about $2200 for my carport, installed. It has 120 mph wind rating and I don't remember the snow load rating, but whatever is required in my area. I simply back up underneath it when I get home and pull out from underneath it when I leave. I can have my slide open and windows and vents open for ventilation year round. Easy to get in when its stored, easy to keep clean, don't have to dry it out between trips or mess with it at all.
It is pricy, but how long do those RV covers really last? My dad used them on our campers and they lasted 4 or 5 years before they started to tear. It was a pain in the neck when they were wet and it was always annoying to use (climbing on the roof and dragging it over AC, fridge and roof vents). When we had a trip planned a couple weeks out, we stopped using it because it wasn't worth the hassle of covering and then uncovering 2 weeks later. Over the long term, the carport is about the same price, MUCH easier to use, allows full use of your camper when stored and has value when you are done using it.
I think my carport is AWESOME!
