Metal carports for 41 foot fifth wheels

Has anyone bought and have a metal carport type enclosure for their 35-41 foot fifth wheel? If you did how much did it cost? Is it holding up well? What manufacturer did you use? "Free" delivery and set up? How much wider and higher did you get it for your RV? Thanks for any help.

I had one installed. They are out of Victoria, Texas but there are many throughout the country. Mine was $3600. That equates to about $100/foot and included adding additional 6' drop siding. Basic structures are 3' down.. They installed it on my concrete pad. They can be installed over dirt or gravel and using screw augers.
Had a 36' installed for a 32' fiver. New fiver is 34'. Extra length is needed to protect the ends from the elements. I should have gotten a cover that is 6'-8' longer and enclosed most of the back.

This is our Eagle carport. Ours is 14 foot center 40 ft long and 16 ft wide. We only had them come down 3 ft on the sides and one day have it extended another 3 ft and possibly enclose the back. We would have liked it wider or longer for the truck but did not have the room because of a huge oak tree behind it. We spent 3800 for it. We had a major hailstorm last April that totaled out old truck and did over 25000 damage to house but kept 5er good. Yes the roof is dented and we put back on a piece of the ridge vent but not bad enough to put on new roof. Someone in La has one that has gone thru a couple of hurricanes and is still ok.

I bought a 30 ft cover on craigslist for $1300. I used conduit and tarps to block the sun. They are cheap and works great. I put paving blocks under each tire.Click image for larger version
