RV Carport Height??

Hi All,

I'm installing an 18' wide x 36' long carport for our 2017 White Hawk 28 DSBH. I plan on parking it all the way over to one side so I can park other items on the other side. I'm having a hard time deciding what leg height to go with? It can't be any taller than 11' leg height due to height restrictions in the yard. Have any of you parked your travel trailer all the way to one side of a 10' or 11' leg height carport? How close is the clearance to the roof/wall braces at the top? How close to the wall can you park without contacting these braces? I would just go with a wider carport, but again, 18' is the widest I can go due to yard restrictions. If anyone has any pictures of your travel trailer parked inside your carport, that would be awesome! Thanks.

I have a 2015 Jayflight and 18' wide carport with 10' legs. I park in the middle. I assume your White Hawk and my Jayco are of similar heights. I don't think 10' legs would work, I would suggest 11' at minimum. The side angle braces come down 28" and in 28" from the side, so you would only be able to get it that close to the sidewall anyway. The biggest issue is the AC unit on top. I would think that at 11' tall (Assuming same height as my camper), you would be able to get the trailer pretty close to the angle braces.

I can email you pics if you send me your address, I don't know how to post pics anymore now that Photobucket charges for it.

Thanks spoon059! I think our TT's would be similar in height. My WH is about 131" at top of A/C unit. Pictures would be awesome! My email is jdmeacham@yahoo.com.

Thanks!

Keep in mind to leave room to put your slide outs out.

Mine had 11' sides and when I parked my new rig in it centered, I had only 6 inches clearance when in the center. I had to get a extension and lift the unit to add them at the bottom. Now I can crawl around on the roof while it is parked. Mine is 13'6". 18 x 36. I just put another shed next to it for my truck.
