Just had this carport installed for my TC. Took two installers 5 hrs. to erect. Its warrantied for 100 mph winds. I went with a concrete pad so they could anchor down with 12 concrete anchors. I am having them come back and enclosing in the back end for added strength. I'll have a garage door added on the back end so I can open it for cross ventilation. So nice to just back in and unload, knowing the TC is protected.

That is very nice; it’s nice to have a place to keep your camper out of the sun and rain.

What is the measurement about 12 X 20 X 12 high?

Yep, back in drop the tie downs and hit the up button on the electric jacks.

We have a similar set up only the sides are white tarp.

Hi Mike
Its 14'W X 25'L X 12'H The highest middle peak is 15', so it is a monster. So far the neighbors are OK with it.

neighbors would be our issue...that's why, as shown in profile, we stash ours at a self-storage place...truly should get a cover...can't store in any form or fashion at house b/c of subdivision covenants/city ordinances :-(

I'm glad you didn't get one that has X pieces going over the top of your camper. A friend of DH got one like that...birds would roost there and poop to their little heart's content. What a mess!

Yours looks great...happy for you.
