Thats ok, the carport still protects your unit. And not near the cost of this. It is a beautiful building and we all wish we could have something like that. Congratulations on that building and the unit. Both are beautiful. Looks like they probably split the cost three ways too. That would have sure helped in the decision making!

Very nice building. I have always told DW, next RV we have will be kept under cover. I'm currently planning to stick build a carport in the spring.

I would say yes, in a big way. A building with a 20 foot eave height is quite a tall building.

Very nice building. Ours started at 40x60 in 2002, and grew over the years. It's a series of shops / areas / apartment in one big building now. Just kept adding and adding. Somewhere around 6000 sq ft now. Total of 7 garage doors. We went all steel I-beams on that one with 18' eves with the peak somewhere around 20 or so. Very nice to be able to stand up on top of a fifth wheel, wash inside and so on. Now that it's like it is, I can't help but sit back and think dang, I wish I'd have done this or that different. Biggest thing I wish I could do to it now, that I'll never have the money for, is AC the whole thing. Too much $$.


As for the backing up, I'm one of those people that can't stand crooked things. I finally got around to painting yellow lines the full length of the RV bay with some of that parking lot paint, and that simplified it a LOT. Also put a stop block where there is no guessing how far back to go, and no flagging necessary. First time I ever backed a RV into the bay in 2003, I managed to barely bump the wall. Whoops.

I have 2 bldgs, 30x42x12 ft tall, and 30x50x10 ft tall.

Can't get my new sunset trail into either of them.The jayco would fit but the sunset trail at 11 ft 2 in. tall won't go into the 30x42. When they graded and poured the concrete it raised the floor to where my clearance is now just a little under 11 ft 2. Wasn't really even thinking about clearance at the time I paid to have the concrete poured.

So now I'm looking at a 24x36x14 ft tall bldg. Or maybe just a bldg with no sidewalls of that size, kind of a carport.

The door on the 30x42 is a tight fit to get an 8 ft wide trailer into also as it's a little less than 10 ft wide.
Come summer I may see if I can get the sunset trail in there, slowly and with an observer.

Doesn't it stink when you realize something won't fit? I'm dealing with similar, except length now. Shopping for a new full time fifth wheel, and even though the original RV bay was 45', the upstairs of the apartment part sticks out some, and I've cut my available length back. Scratching head now. New rig would be around 43', and that's doesn't allow any fudge room at all. Hind site.

For sure. I had a motorhome in the 30x42 (it was 30x50 then) when the tornado came and knocked half of the bldg down. No problem getting the travco in there.
Insurance built me a new building, I just picked something I could work on stuff and park my truck in. Then since they wouldn't pay to tear the old one down I cabled it off and then rebuilt it but 8 ft shorter.

This all happened in 2012, a camper was the farthest thing from my mind at the time, I didn't buy another one until Dec. of 2014.
