Oh that just sounds like a ton of fun.
I'm stressing about moving the legs enuff to get the concrete done.

Depending on the look you want I would do crushed limestone or class 5.

If you have issues with standing water in the area, especially if you are on clay. We have made what is essence a French drain by drill holes (post holes) around the area in a few spots to create a good drainage hole. Then fill the hole with a stone that will not compact, pending on the soil sometimes a bit of landscaping fabric to line the hole and over the top once filled is nice to keep sediment from filling in the stone. This way when it rains the water has a low point to drain way.

Yes, that makes sense vdubee, but since my property is very rocky, I think I will have to put in concrete footings. I don't think the soil will hold the strap anchors securely enough.

Here are my sheds. One for trailer, one for truck. #1 are the sheds
#2 is the bottom. I put a treated 1x4 under with drain slots every 4'. Note the thru slab bolts and 1ft extensions on each foot.
#3 is the water power pedestal.
#4 are the wind braces.

Is it of utmost importance that an RV be level when parked at home?

You'd want to be level to pre-cool the fridge before a trip or if you want to open a slide-out. Other than that, a bit off-level should not matter.

I put a parking area in this past summer next to my garage. I removed 3" of soil/grass, leveled it and put down a weed barrier. Then I put down 3"-4" of 3/4" modified stone and compacted it down. I also used leftover landscape bricks from another project to create what is more or less a just a decorative border.

Only mistake I made was leveling mine. I should have had it level side to side with a slope to allow water to run off the slab. To late now. I drilled some 1 inch hole but they keep stopping up with trash.
