RV Shelters

We have a Rockwood Mini Lite2306 on order. Considering getting a metal carport for storage. Anyone have a recommendation for a newbie?

Get a shelter larger then the trailer. If you are like most of us you will be upgrading to a larger unit in a few years. Plus if you are getting a carport for your unit consider installing a 50 amp RV outlet. This box will have a 50,30 and 20 amp plugins. You might also want to consider installing a water valve and a sewer pipe at the carport.

I hear a lot off people talk about sewer lines for the campers at home. How exactly are you doing this? Do you have septic tanks? I have city sewer I would I tie into a system like that.

If you are able to tie in to the city line then yes.

That could be quite costly

You could always use a macerator and pump into a 1 1/2" pipe.

Actually if you are familiar at all with plumbing it could be easily under $30 ... Jim

Thanks for all your input. Electric will be on my list of things to include. Not sure about sewer although I can see how useful that would be.

I wouldn't have invested in a new camper without a permanent structure to cover it. I kept my last camper out in the open and then decided on a fabric cover. This worked somewhat, but over the years the sun will deteriate the camper and a fabric cover.

Maybe $30 for the parts but if you want to tie into a municipal sewer the permit cost alone wouldn't be worth it. And if you need to hire a backhoe to bury the pipe you'd be well over $1000. A macerator pump would be less expensive.
