As for recommendations, I measured the camper and talked to the salesman for the carports to get ideas. The sides obviosly are not as high as the center. I think mine is listed at 11' to the center (12' wide) however it has "crossbeams" for support that run across the center that are about 3' long so that takes away a few inches from the height. I could always remove them if needed. I put 4"x4" posts at the corners and bolted them to the metal legs to help with support.
I can snap a pic tomorrow if you would like to see the clearance.

Thanks Howie.....I would sure appreciate it if you could post a picture. Would give me a better visual of how your carport / HTT clearance looks as well. With my figuring, and with a 12' wide Carport, I am guessing I will only have a minimum of 24" on both sides of the camper if parked dead center under it. My HTT is approx. 7 1/2 ' wide.
I'm hoping the legs, which I know are 5' on center would be spaced enough to allow access into the HTT. I'm going to have to do some more marking and measuring on the pad to check my door clearance.

Thanks again, much appreciated!

Here are a couple pic's. Mine has 9' legs. 11' to the bottom of the tin roof. I lose about 7" from the thickness of the metal framing and the cross member support. That could be removed though. So it is about 10'5" clearance.

Thank you. It is a PERFECT setup! The dimension of my HTT are pretty much identical to your TT ( I googled the stats ) so I can see it fitting nicely under the Carport. Our door is in the same position, so I got a visual of the clearance for the door as well.

BTW, I am loving your Micro Lite. This is one of the TT's we were originally looking at a couple years back. I love the layouts they have in them.

Hmmm , the good news is knowing I can utilize the same carport as yours for our current HTT..... the bad news is now "I know" I can later down the road use it "just in case" we decide to get a Micro Lite.

I would say that is a win-win!
Howie, Thanks again for the pics. They were a great help with my decision now.

Glad I could help! We love the micro lite so far. This is camper #4 and hopefully the last one for quite a while!
I left the door open so you could see where it was in relation to the legs. I did put some pipe insulation on the leg just to be safe.

Did you make that yourself? Or buy it?
