RV Carports

RV CarportsAn RV is a significant investment and extremely helpful on vacations, from camping to road trips. But, what if you don't get as much use out of your RV as you'd like? Leaving a vehicle outside for several months at a time exposes it to UV rays and water, which, over time, crack internal and external parts, fade paint, or cause mildew, mold, or dry rot to form on the surface. Prevent its lifespan from being cut short by keeping it sheltered. Although, in this case, putting it in a garage is a logical option, what if a home is not equipped with such a structure? What are your options then?

Three approaches are common: keeping the RV in a storage park, sheltering it with a tarp, or storing it under a carport. Storage parks can be hit or miss; while the vehicle is off your property, it may be exposed to UV rays and water in another location. Tarps, on the other hand, may blow off, especially if one isn't secured properly to a vehicle. An RV carport, however, combines the protective properties of a tarp with a secure shelter large and strong enough to house a vehicle for several months.

RV CarportRV carports have two basic components: a polyethylene cover and a steel frame. Treated to be UV resistant and waterproof, the polyethylene prevents UV rays and water from getting to the vehicle and, at the same time, does not lock moisture inside. Made out of galvanized or powder-coated heavy-duty structural steel, the frame gives the carport its strength component, holding up to high winds and heavy snow loads once anchored into the ground.

In addition to providing your vehicle with dependable protection for several months, an RV carport is economical and versatile. Brick-and-mortar garages require building plans, construction, and permits; RV carports, on the other hand, come with all parts needed, seldom need permits for installation, and can be placed practically anywhere within building codes on your property. The overall cost of installing one, as well, is significantly less than constructing a brick-and-mortar garage.

RV carports are built with heights and lengths relevant to such vehicles. Before purchasing, however, measure your vehicle. In your measurements, include any outside parts, such as vents, in with the dimensions; the shelter, as well, should have enough room to house the vehicle and to allow a person to walk inside.
