Parking space finally done.

It took them 2 months to even come start the work and only 24 hours to get it done.

Looks like they did a pretty good job. Looks fairly level but as you drive over it a bunch it won't stay that way very long (mine didn't). I poured concrete pads where the tires normally stop so I can be sure the TT is always level when I pull in. Don't remember how many for sure but I think it took six bags of QuikCrete (five feet by 18 inches).

Nice looking parking pad the idea of adding concert to the pad for the tires is a good idea.

Good idea but I don't think I'm competent enough to back in at the same exact location each time.

I'm also not good at that backing stuff. That's why I made the pads 18" wide. Most of the time my carport is a pull through but if the ground is too wet I have to back in.

Very nice.

Here is my parking spot. As you can see, its not ideal!



We got some absolutely insane rain, about 3" in 2 hours. Luckily, it can't get any higher than that, because at that height, it drains out into the street.

Luckily we have hard clay ground, 3 days after that rain, I had no issues backing my truck in and pulling the camper out.

I've been wanting to get a load of crusher run gravel put down as a pad, but we want to sell our house in a year or so, and I'm not sure if that would take away from the value.
