RV Carport/Shelter/Garage

All,

I am in the final stages of designing a shelter to keep my RV in. I am pretty sure of the overall design I have in mind but I'm running into a couple gotchas along the way. That's where I'd like y'all's help. Those that are willing, would you post a picture on your carport/garage/shelter where you store your RV? It can be any type or variation. Thanks in advance.

No pic. Don't make my mistake. I've got a 36'X12' Coast to Coast Carport with 12' legs. It covers the RV, but I can't extend the slides which is a problem. I should have got the 18' wide model.

RV Carport

Ours is the same as Norty's, except back side is closed to ground and sides are closed to within 4' of ground. 35' long, 18' wide, 10' side posts, which give 12'6" center clearance. 18' wide allows for slide outs to open, but my 22FB has no slides. Just planned for future. It's at a storage facility, and I'll have it disassembled and rebuilt if I ever move. Got from a company in Mt. Airy, NC. Cost $3k incl. erection. Certified for 140 mph winds. 30# snow load. Plan to hang down mesh shade cloth half way down on open (South) end for summer months.

This is where I found the best price for me in Maryland. I don't know how to post pics anymore, but I have a 31' long, 18' wide with 10' legs with boxed eaves. It is tall enough with the 10' legs that I have about one foot of clearance at the center for my AC. It is wide enough that I can keep my slide open at home, plus have plenty of covered area to walk around the camper to load gear. I wish it was a little longer, but 31' is all the room I had before I hit a hill in my back yard.

It has hurricane ties for my area's wind load, additional bracing for my areas snow load as well. Prices on the website take into account restrictions or requirements for your environment.

I leveled the area and simply installed gravel, to keep it a temporary structure. I poured some concrete pads for the tires, so I can easily level it. I think I paid right around $2400 for it. That included delivery and installation. A team of 3 guys came and installed it in a couple hours in the morning. I was parked underneath it after lunch time. I was very happy with it, I still am. It is covered 320 days a year with no extra effort on my part. When I sell my house, it can quickly be removed if the new owner doesn't want it. It'll be standing for about 12 years by the time I plan to sell my house so it will have cost me about $200 a year (a little more than $15 a month) to store my camper covered for 12 years.

My winter project is getting pavement estimates from contractors for a new driveway and RV port pad. I am also talking with contractors for a utility station for the RV port. I have not selected the cover material or supplier yet. We are going to be in the 20-25'x30-35' range.

Height

Are there "generally accepted" garage heights needed for various trailers? As in, single axle: X'; double axle: Y'; class A=Z'; with AC add 2'; with flipped axles add 1', etc.?

Or maybe 5th wheel = A'; TT = B'

Similar to how most trailers have 8' width or whatever.
