I love all the pics of your structures.
We have been planning a structure for the TT and farm equipment but with the price of such a structure we decided to rent a portion of a "horse" barn at a local fair grounds with conc floor, elec. and security. Renting vs owning....5 months of rent equals 1 month loan payment. Downside...it's not in my back yard.....maybe someday we will build a structure for the TT and equipment.

Yeah, that's a humdinger carport! We don't have concrete, just gravel. You did run 50 amp power out there right?!? And water?

I finished installing the lights in my cover today. Didn't know I was finished (had planned on four overhead lights) but once I saw it at night I satisfied it will be adequate for anything I would need to be doing out there after dark. Next project is installing LED floodlights at each end shining away from the cover. At least, when I get the time. Being retired keeps me way too busy.

I like that setup, but do you have a problem with dust? I had to quit keeping my enclosed utility trailer in my barn because of all the flying dust.

During the summer/fall season the setup for this building is portable 10x10 stalls each with rubber mats and bedding. Once the season is over the building is cleaned and ready for the "hibernation" season. There is no dust, cobwebs or any signs of animal habitants. There is elec if you want to keep your battery on a trickle charger but everyone removes theirs and H2O but why would one need it... the TT is hibernating. You must remove all LP tanks for obvious reasons.
It's a great deal.

Happy Trails

I hope you mean 8 anchors per side. I was told that "code" (and the manufacturers) required a minimum of one anchor between each vertical post, with the anchors alternating from inside to outside positions.

In my deliberations prior to settling on a builder I learned that most carports are sold based on leg height. Mine has 11 foot legs but one side of the legs are actually 5.5 inches higher to compensate for slope. If I measure 18 inches in from the side I have a clearance of 12' 9" at the top. The center has a clearance of 14' 9" and measuring out from there I get 13' 10" at 2.5 feet. My TT is 12.5 feet at the top of the a/c unit so there is no problem when I park it with the left side about two feet from the edge. If I got a unit with the 13.5 height I'll have to be sure to park it in the center.
