True...........Darn. May have to bite the bullet and spend the bucks...

Know anyone that want to buy a 8 x 13 x 20 RV Awning.

Funny you should mention that. After I found out the cost to raise the one at my old house I tried to sell it on Craigslist at half price and found no takers...

I may need to start a new thread or just do a search but here it goes.

It appears the place we are getting will not have enough space to build one of these structures. I am going to have to just cover the rig.

Any good suggestions for a really good weather proof cover and where is the best place to buy them from?

Thanks.

Just curious on how much space you have? They sell these metal RV ports pretty narrow. Are eves of your house getting in the way?

Eves are in the way for one. Also I literally think I will only have about 8 in of clearance. I am thinking I may even have to lose a few lbs to get out of the door.

Think of that as a good omen....

On topic: 4 inches on each side is tight but doable.

I had a freind that removed the eave from his house to park his motorhome next to it.

Without sufficient clearance you will have to go with a fabric cover. When I researched them a few years ago, I looked at thickness of material. I also wanted the top to be a seperate heavier material. And I looked at who offered the best warranty.

I assume you have checked with the city to make sure you can park your RV next to your house? Some cities don't allow it.

Yep that part is all good. I think I will start with Camping World for the cover.
