TT carports
 
I'm thinking of getting a Carolina Carport for my TT. The height is 11'1" with A/C. The length is 29'. I'm looking at a 18X36X10. Do you think this would fit? Can anyone show pictures of what their comparable TT looks like in heir carport? Thanks.

Great thing about forums is learn from other peoples' mistakes. So let me recommend things I didn't do when I had a carport for our TT.

1. Your size sounds pretty good. The key thing I was looking for was room to put slides out. That's a must.

2. Rain will come in sideways at times. Would it be a big deal to go 40' long instead of 36'?

3. If the sun will be hitting the sides of the camper, think about having the sides covered when they build it. Its not too expensive if they do it at construction. Keeping the TT dry is good but keeping the sun from fading it out is twice good.

You should be perfect with those measurements, especially the 10' leg height.

Just to show ours as an example, we have a 18' ( width ) x 20' ( length ) x 9' ( legs ) and we have plenty of room. Our TT measures 9'11" with A/C. Our Carport center measure 12'.
As you can see we have ours offset on the right, sitting on a cement pad.

Make sure you get the in-ground screw anchors if you are setting it on the ground. They are well worth the extra money. Ours is anchored on 1/2 concrete and 1/2 ground.

Here are a couple pics. We bought this carport from All Steel Carports, for our last HTT, which was a tad shorter, but still works well.

Still waiting after 14 weeks for my carport from Carolina Carports .
I was told by costumer service that there still working on orders from October .
I would find another brand. This company is bad news , check BBB.

I just purchased an Elephant Carport for my Heritage Glen. Will have it delivered and setup within the month. Its a 18X36 10 ft legs for a little over $2,100.00

I will give my input on Carolina Carports. My opinion only. We had ordered from them, via an alternate company they use ( Elephant Structures ) for outside sales. They were glad to take our deposit and tell us all the good things they do, but their ( Carolina Carports ) delivery and customer service sucked. We ended up forfeiting our deposit and ordered from All Steel, due to the many uncertain delivery dates and lack of communication for the install. Was very disappointing.

In the past we have used Tri-State ( twice ) and also All Steel ( now twice ), and can honestly say I would refer them to anyone looking for a Carport.

As Homebrew stated, the reviews of Carolina Carport are poor. Buyer Beware! JMHO!

Didn't see your posting before I hit the reply button. Good luck with "Elephant Structures", as they are 1 in the same as Carolina Carports.

Maybe you will have better luck than we had.

Just ordered a 24'w x 30'l x 10'h metal carport to cover both my camper and F250. The rear wall will be fully enclosed. the sides are covered to within 2 &1/2' from the ground. I figured having the back fully covered allowed more protection for any given length of carport because I could park closer to the rear and be fully sheltered from the sun. We'll see.
