Hey! I am looking for input on what size metal building/RV carport to buy for my 2008 Winnebago Outlook 31c. The spec sheet says it has roughly the following dimensions:

31.5L
11.5H
8.5W

The one I have speced out is

36L
18W
12H (leg length, higher in center)

I was thinking of going shorter for less overhang on front and back mainly to save the space but was afraid I would regret it. For those who have these, how did you decide on what size to get?

Thanks!

Measure your RV yourself. Easier with a helper however. BTW 6 inches isn’t enough. You’ll never be able work on the roof.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watt solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL flag pole. Prefer boondocking, USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, state camps. Bicyclist14 yr. Army vet-11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560) IOBC & IOAC grad

Did the exact thing last year for a 38' fifthwheel. Went with a 40" carport but if I had to do it over I would have went with a 48' foot carport. We are in NM and would desire a bit more shade. Specs look good.

I have a 50'x12" wide. I have had to raise the roof 3 times for different rv's. Go high the first time and be done with it. If next rv is higher I'm scrapping the whole thing and starting over. Raising these things is neither safe nor fun.

I just finish raising mine and extending it 7', this is the fourth modification, and I said to myself what Bob just said, I will scrape the whole thing and start over, don't build it for this camper build it for your last camper, it's a lot cheaper in the long run!

The one I have for my 31' fifth wheel is 36'x18' with 12' legs. The center of the carport is 3-4 feet above the roof at the highest point, more on the ends.
