Carport for Trailer

Does anyone know of a decent carport cover? We want to shelter our 29rks. There are a number of them, but we're not sure about their quality.

I would ask anyone that has one in your neighborhood about their satisfaction and get some information locally. Contact carport installation places.

Mine came form a trailer parts supplier but many sell them. There are only about 3 different styles that I have seen. Make sure that it meets local building codes. I had mine installed then added a concrete slab under it. It would be a lot less trouble t pour the slab before the installation.

Thank you, Norty1!
We have a 6" reinforced concrete RV slab. We'd like a 20x35 carport.

Alan's Factory Outlet. I bought mine in 2015 and love it! I have a 30x18. Wish I could have gone 32 or 34 feet, but I'm space limited to be able to use a gate to access the back yard. Zero complaints about the carport though. Bought it, took a couple weeks for delivery and they installed it in a couple hours.

Not sure of the brand, plus the company went under after I bought it and was bought out. They have examples at various vendor around where I live. The company installed it in about a half day. Iíve since added another panel on the left side and enclosed the rear to the same height (about 6-1/2í from the ground) and enclosed the front at the eve height and added a roll up tarp to the front. After going through one good cover on an earlier camper, we decided a car port was the way to go. I would think the quality is similar between the brands. One area to compare is the gauge of the tubing the company uses.
