RV Port

Mine's the same size as Spoon059 - 18x31x10. It's the basic horizontal sheeted unit. Gives center clearance of 12.75'. My county (NC) required 'certified unit' which is: Heavier snow & wind loading, longer metal warranty, professional engineering drawings, twice the screw anchors (every 4') for ground 'foundation', 1/3 more screws in sheeting, and heavier side post to arch rafter braces. I don't have slides and trailer is a 22FB, but planned for potential bigger unit w/ slide. I closed in the back to bottom (which includes metal studding every 4.5'), added two sheets to both sides - which covers within 4' of ground. This keeps unit cleaner, shades rear of unit, and shades sides almost to floor level. Cost $3,200 installed. Built at a storage facility after build crew said they could disassemble and rebuild at new site at reasonable cost. Got from Steel Structures in Mt Airy. They go all over SE. Very satisfied.

Always build for the next RV or future owner. I built ours 20x45 with a 15 ft sidewall. I didnt have a way to do 24 wide without a new septic system

I agree with the build bigger for the next camper if you plan to live at the same location for some time.
I did a 46'X18'X12' side walls. Glad I did, because the 5th wheel fit fine moving up from the TT. I can just get on the roof for quick things, but pull out if I need to do anything major for standing room. Center height is 14'6" with the 12' side walls.
Closed in 3 sides to keep leaves to a minimum and no sun hits anything but the front for a short time in the mornings. Certified model was $6600 here in NC. Likely a little more now as everything costs more $$$ now...

Redsnaper, I got a "Coast to Coast" RV Carport 36'X12' with 12' side legs. At the time the cost was around $2700 installed. I have never measured the peak to ground but I would guess it to be 15'. I park a 31.5 FBHS in it. If I could do it over, I would get the 18' wide model. As is, I don't have room to open the slides while parked.

Hope this helps.
