My HTT height is 9 1/2' from ground to center of A/C atop roof. A/C sits dead center atop HTT. I was thinking a 12' wide with 10'-11' Roof Pitch Center with possibly 9'-10' legs. Only guesstimating at this moment on my needed clearance until I can get some actual specs from the carport Dealers. Did you get any height recommendations before having installed?
I had a smaller camper when I got the carport, but my 23LB fits with about 3-4" to spare above the AC (it also sits dead center). It takes it all up since the carport is only 21' and my camper is 23'8" from tongue tip to bumper. But, all of the body and roof is under cover.
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.
