Protecting Your Getaway Vehicle All Year Round
A motorhome shelter can help take these kinds of worries and eliminate them. When you store you RV in a covered space during the off-season, you’re protecting it from months of inclement weather that can damage seals, rooftop air conditioners, and vents, just to name a few potential problems. Being stuck out in the rain and weather can also result in water getting in to corrode your slide-out rails as well, and no one likes that worrying nails on a chalk-board sound that happens when corroded rails grind out your pop-out kitchenette. That’s why Carport Central’s Motorhome Carports are a great solution to preventing maintenance by getting your RV out of the weather when not in use.
Metal Makes the Best Motorhome Roof Covers
Metal is a long-lasting and durable material that is lightweight enough to be assembled by anyone with a willing extra set of hands. The reduced cost of metal over traditional wood structures is definitely an important point as well. Metal just stands up better to time than wood does especially given that it is impervious to insect damage an
Dry rot issues. Wooden or tar roofs tend to need replacing over time, where a metal roof can stand the test of time. All this considered, it’s clear that metal is the best material for RV Covers.
What’s The Best Motorhome Carport For Me?
Alright, now we have to get down to brass tacks. Buying an Motorhome Cover is a great step in Motorhome and RV ownership, it’s that point that shows your Motor-home or RV days are going to last a long time, and you’re taking the necessary steps to ensure that your Motorhome or RV stands the test of time. Obviously the first two considerations are going to be the height and length of your Motor Home. Since our units come in lengths ranging from 12 to 41 feet, we’ve got you covered. We strongly suggest that you get an motorhome metal cover that’s a few feet longer than your motorhome or RV, this will ensure that you’ve got full coverage of your vehicle and plenty of room to move around.
You have some options where width is concerned, while a 12’ wide unit may very well give you plenty of room to drive your motor home inside, it doesn’t leave a lot of room to perform maintenance while enjoying the luxury of a roof over your head. We suggest adding another 6’ to the width of your motorhome garage so you have some room to work while you flush the septic system and drain out the grey water, check the tires, and make sure the propane tanks are in good condition and ready to go.
Once those basic concerns are addressed, Carport Central has a number of other options that will help you customize your carport to be the perfect shelter. No worries, you won’t have to do this alone, we here at Carport Central believe that educating our customer on their purchase is essential, so we’ll go through the following options with you to determine the perfect configuration.
- Width: Our motorhome ports come in a huge variety of widths, from 12’ to 60’ wide, so we’re guaranteed to have the perfect solution for your needs. A little extra space never hurt anyone, and when you love getting into the outdoors in your RV, you’ll probably also find yourself in need of an ATV Cover. Why not go a little wider and handle both?
- Length: You want to make sure your Motor-home RV is completely covered to ensure maximum protection from the elements. That’s why we offer lengths ranging from 12’ to 41’ deep in 5’ increments. A little extra space never hurt either, you can tuck your lawn care equipment in with your RV to keep it accessible but out of the weather.
- Sheet Metal and Frame Gauge: Sometimes, particularly if you’re in high wind areas or building a particularly sizeable carport, you may want to invest in heavier gauge frames or sheet metal. That’s why we offer two gauges for each, Frames in 12 and 14, Sheet Metal in 26 and 29.
- A Little Extra: Along with your Motorhome or RV, you may want to store your equipment for maintaining it, along with the other little odds and ends that help to keep your life rolling along. That’s why we offer walls for the shelter that will convert it form a carport to a barn, garage, workshop, just about anything you can imagine! We can also add on a smaller side-structure that will be closed in. The ultimate in versatility!
- Certified For Your Region: Given the broad range of our service area, we’ve gone to special pains to be able to provide the certifications you’ll need to have a carport built in your area. We’ll let you know what you need and what it will take to get it.
