RE: Contracting out for re-caulking

Thank you all for your suggestions. I did not know that such a thing as a mobile RV tech existed and I will definitely look into that. I like the idea of traveling to a nearby state where cost of living is lower and combining a re-caulking with a vacation, great thought. The caulking is the original Dicor, and that's what I'll have put on after all the old is removed. I've used Eternabond tape for small dings from road debris and a hole from a branch when I overestimated my ability to maneuver under a tree but will stick with Dicor for the seams. I feel much better about the approach I'm considering after hearing from you all, thanks again. Good trails to you all.

Contracting out for re-caulking

I’m trying to decide how to approach the storage of our 2009 Lance 1055. I’m no longer able to climb on top or access high up the sides or nose to re-caulk it. I also can’t put on and take off a cover. Recently I had posted a question about putting up a carport thinking that would do away with the need for a cover. The area where the camper lives gets only partial sun and we don’t have severe winters. But now I’m wondering about not putting up a cover at all, leaving it exposed to the elements and just having it re-caulked more frequently. Up until now it's lived under a cover when not in use and is in good shape. So I’m looking for advice from anyone who has paid to have their rig re-caulked. What type of place did you use (RV dealer/service center, independent company, other), what, if any issues did you have with the quality of the job or the company you hired, what recommendations do you have for proceeding with this plan? Thanks for your thoughts.

RE: Truck Camper carport

Thanks again for the good suggestions. I have one quote for a steel structure and am in process of getting a local contractor to give me a quote on a wooden one. Also getting a quote for the concrete work.

RE: Truck Camper carport

Thanks to you all for your responses. With the fire season lasting so long now and wanting to be ready to leave at a moment's notice I keep the camper on the truck from March when we start our spring camping into early November when we're done camping for the year. So while I like the idea of a lower cover that the camper would roll into on dollies it won't work for me. I'll check out the dealers mentioned and am planning on extending the windward/sunny side 3/4 down. Thanks again, I've learned so much over the years from this forum and have been able to share a bit also.

Truck Camper carport

After losing our CalMark Sunbrella cover during a very hurried evacuation from the recent River fire I've decided to put in a concrete pad and a metal carport for our truck camper and not have to deal with getting the cover on and off, sometimes in a hurry. I wasn't able to find any forum topics on the subject of metal carports for RVs. I've found lots of companies online that sell these carports so I thought I'd reach out here and see what thoughts you might have. Any recommendations or suggestions?

RE: TC Fitted Cover

I'll second HMS Beagle's response. My first Calmark cover lasted 9 years and the new one I just got is an even better custom fit and the material is long lasting. It comes with built in straps that secure the top against wind and there is a zipper on either side of the door so that the door flap can be rolled up and secured on top for easy access while the camper remains covered. Highly recommended.
