emm-dee, not sure where you are located but here is a link to the carport I have. Wait time was only a couple of weeks and the crew did a great job. They contract thru individual shed dealers but the installers, for me anyway, came out of their warehouse in Summerfield which is about 30 miles from me.

I know someone in Lake City who had them install his cover. He had good luck with them. But, they only operate in Florida and I'm a couple hundred miles north in Georgia.

Correction- 14 weeks not months.

They promised 2-10 week install

Got mine from Carolina Carports last year 12'X18'X42'. They called about 3 weeks after my order to say the install crew would be onsite such and such day and approximate time. Crew showed up when they said and put it up in about 3.5 hours. I had to have the site leveled for them. It is true ... Carolina Carports have several subcontractors that do the install all over the US ... I don't think they employ their own crews.

Carolina Carports

most of the factory contacts were just sales offices and the main office contracts the install labor. i had a 18' X 41' installed with full sides plus added the extra 4 foot braces from roof to supports to add rigidity. the supports are 12' at the support ends and over 14 at the peak or center so there is plenty of room for the 5th to fit (2016 31k silverback) and can open all slides with room to spare. the outfit they sent to install did an outstanding job and am very pleased with the metal and workmanship. plus with full sides i was worried about wind so unit was set up for 180 mile an hour winds. live in florida and this is always a concern to which it is getting a test today since we are having 50 to 60 mph gusts. it flexes a bit but very stable. best investment in Florida to preserve the exterior (and interior) from the elements. pay for the extra cross memebers as well as tie downs and the Gauge of metal you'll be happy. cost me 3000 including the permitting.

I had a carport and workshop built by Carolina Carports. They said 3 to 10 weeks and they called in about 3 weeks and said they were ready to install it the following week. The installation crew showed up when they said they would and did a great job on the install. They were very meticulous and precise. I am very pleased and plan to get them to install an RV cover in the Spring.

That's good to hear. I talked to them a couple of months ago and they wouldn't tell me who would do the actual install so I went with a local installer. I guess it's all in the luck of the draw as to which installer you actually get.

GL1800Rider;

Did you have to get any hurricane certification/ wind load specs to put it up and how did the posts attach to ground. Is that a concrete footer?

Thanks

The carport has double braced uprights 5' in from each end and is anchored every 5'. The base is all crushed concrete and leveled with no actual footer. It is supposed to be good for 150mph.

Did they just drive bent over rebar to hold it down through the base plate? If no footer, what attaches the base plate to ground?
