RV Carport Cover

Looking at getting a metal carport cover, has anybody bought one and if so what height and length. Anything particular to look for. Going to cover my Silverback 33iK.

Having one installed next week. They say 11 foot wall height will give me at least 14 foot center height, or more depending on how it's leveled. Twenty wide by 40 long is going to run $2,900 installed, all taxes and labor included. Might be cheaper elsewhere but I've looked at three of their installations and all the owners highly recommend this dealer (local). Was told that each additional foot of length would run about $80.

Just drive around till you see some and ask the owner who did the work and would they recommend them.

Mine is 16' wide, 36' long and 16' wide. At the time, I had a 35' travel trailer. I would suggest spending the extra money and getting the roof pans that run the width instead of length so the water runs off of the side and not front to back. Mine is open in the front and back and has a 3' panel on each side. This will give you enough room to have your slides out.

GL the one I'm pricing is 12'H x 18' W x 40' L with 3' sides and vertical roof for the water runoff. That's a nice one you have there.

Will do. Power company showing up Monday to remove some lines because I'm cutting down an 80' high pine tree which is blocking where I want the carport put. Actually, I hate that ugly pine tree so using the carport as an excuse to cut it down. Once the building is up I'm running 20/30/50 amp power and a water line. Gives me something to do to keep busy.

I ordered a 24x41x14 from Carolina Carports 14 months ago and they claim they haven't got to my order yet. 😤

I've read several negative reviews about them. I don't know for sure but think they are mainly a sales office that has contracts with local installers throughout the country (or at least part of the country).
