It's 18' wide x 41' long x 12' sidewalls.....approx. 15' in center. I added a 12' wide x 20' long lean to on the side for our pop up. You could park your tow vehicle there.

When I had it built we owned our LaCrosse tt, but it houses our new 2017 Crusader 5'er perfect. The trailer is listed at 12' 9" tall and it's wide enough to open slides on both sides.

I also had a 100 amp breaker box, with cut off, installed next to the meter on our house. Then they ran a line out to the RV port to an electrical box like you find at a campgrounds with 50 amp, 30 amp and 20 amp plugins.



I hope this helps you.



Here's pics;
















You said you had it built. Do you know what company the carport is made by?

They are attached to the rail that runs along the ground as in this picture.



The nut you see on top of the rail is welded to a 2' long rebar and hammered into the ground. Those are the rebar stakes I referred to.
Are the anchors and rebar set into a concrete footer, or just dirt?

I would have to dig out all the paperwork. Sorry, but that was 5 years ago.
I do remember checking with 3 or 4 companies locally. They are just middle men and all pretty much use the same supplier, so quality of material is usually the same. Check to make sure though. Then see which one will give you the best service and price.
A traveling crew installed it. They showed up one evening around 7:30 and worked til dark. They were done by noon the next day.

They are installed directly into the ground. No concrete.

We purchased a new 2015 MBS 24R this spring. I had a pole building built to keep it out of the sun and weather. The building is 26 x 36 with a 14 x 16 OH door. The gravel drive to the side is next to my septic where I have added a dump station. The building is not finished yet. It will have a concrete floor and a man door. If I ever decide to get a larger RV I reserved space at the back to expand.Click image for larger version
