carport question

thinking about a carport for the TT. here is the question, went to a family reunion today they had the tables setup in their carport now the carport is in the shade, it was about 90 degrees walked into the carport and it had to be at least 95 + with a fan blowing. i just wounder with the top of the TT being at the top of the carport it probably would be 100+ would that cause any problems with the TT roof ??

Our RV barn/carport keeps our RV much cooler. It is open on all sides and 24 feet wide and 40 feet long. It has a good pitch to the roof, so do't know if that helps or not. I am not an engineer. Love ours.

Even though the temperature overall might be a little higher under the carport the roof of the RV would be protected from the direct sunlight. That is one of the biggest advantages of having they are the stored under a carport.
At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

It would be a good investment, better than the roof of the RV being in the sun 85% of the day, plus they help keep rain, leaves and other things off the RV roof.
