What Size of RV Carport or Camper Cover Do You Need?
There are around 11.2 million RV owners in the U.S.A. Some use them for traveling around the world, and others just for vacations and spending time with their friends and family. But when it comes to storing them, people often rent storage space and pay serious money to keep their RV, camper, or travel trailer secure and protected.
But how about having a strong and affordable structure that protects your home away from home, as well as are affordable? RV carports from Boss Buildings are exactly what you need.
Ideally, RV storage usually needs to have at least 14 feet of clearance and should be at least 12 to 16 feet long. The most popular sizes for our motorhome, camper, RV covers are 12 by 35 feet, 18 by 35 feet, 12 by 40 feet, and 18 by 40 feet, but we strongly recommend measuring your RV before you buy an RV carport. Consider these points while planning for your steel RV carport:
1) The Size of Your RV
Understanding the size of your RV is the most important aspect. Most vehicle owners know the size and class of their RV as it helps them travel and cross bridges and tunnels.
But those who don’t know can easily measure the size of their RV with measuring tape or by just calling the seller you purchased it from. Then, you must ensure that the custom carport you select is large enough to accommodate your RV. In addition, you will need to consider the height of the carport. Some carports are tall enough to allow you to drive your RV under the carport, while others are not. If you plan on storing other valuables in your metal carport, ensure that the carport you select is large enough to accommodate other items as well.
2) Installation Site
Most people plan their carport in the backyard or near the garage. No matter where you want to plan your custom RV carport, ensure you have sufficient space to drive your RV in and out easily.
You’ll have to make sure that the site is leveled and free from trees, bushes, and debris. Also, try to plan your steel carport away from large trees. Before getting it installed, check the zoning code, ensure you have the necessary building permits, be sure of weather conditions, and have planned the right foundation.
3) Other Design Considerations
Once you’ve decided on the size of your RV carport, consider the design factors like panels, colors, roof styles, lean-to for extra storage, and any other accessories you may want to add to your carport.
