What About Dimensions?
How do I know how much space I will need for my metal RV cover? This is a vital question. You don't want a length, width, or particularly height that is too big or too small. It is important to find just the right size for your storage and motorhome or RV needs. So how do you do that without spending too much?
The important thing is to get your measurements exact when shopping for metal RV carports. Know in advance how much room you will need, maximum, when your slide-outs are deployed, with your AC unit(s) attached, when everything is out just like you have the RV set up while enjoying a nice trip. This way, you will be able to have everything covered when you get back and you are ready to clean and air out your motorhome or camper. You will want to be able to access everything but also keep everything covered, with protection, while doing any maintenance.
You may decide that this means you want extra room for storage behind where you park, or you want side panels that come down and provide more weather protection while you’re parked at your house. There are many variables depending on how much sun shines on your camper, the best way for you to gain easy access, harsh weather, good RV roof access, potential snow in your area, and many other factors.
The takeaway from this section is that you need to know four dimensions: Overall width, length, leg height, and peak height. Apex or peak height is at the very tallest height, in the center. Leg height is at the sides, where the metal "legs" meet the corners of the structure.
What Are My RV Cover Options?
When it comes to metal carports and your customized weather RV cover, there are plenty of options. Some choices include: metal frame gauge - either 14 or thicker 12-gauge framing, or enclosed sides on the RV shelters for more weather protection like that of harmful UV rays. Another choice would be extra storage in metal carports for keeping vehicles such as your car or truck safe and locked up. This option would allow camper storage and storage for RVs and a boat, as well as shelter for vehicles and locked doors such as garages have, so that you can protect your valuables.
Another nice thing that the RV carport allows for is that your nice motorhome can be kept under shelter right at your house instead of driving to a storage facility to park your vehicle in order to protect it. You will know that the storage you choose has the construction you understand to keep the RV or motorhome you bought under your own protection at your house. You will have space right where you need it most and still have cover and enclosed protection under and out of snow, rain, hot sun, wind, sleet, and damaging hail storms.
You can choose the length, width, and height that are best suited and customized to your needs. Another choice is whether you want your cover installed on concrete or not. You can choose the materials that are used to build and install your RV cover. You can choose your own roof styles, such as vertical, a-frame, or regular style. You may want to go with a metal garage style installation, a barn, or an affordable RV camper cover, or metal car cover, a vertical roof portable metal RV carport, metal RV carports, or one of our other affordable buildings on sale for covering campers.

Options? We've got you covered with options!
You have the option to rent-to-own a portable RV cover or finance the carports as well. These structures are affordable and available in more places across the nation than ever before. Our main office is located in Georgia; however, we service all across the USA. There are more financial options now than at any time in history, so feel free to take advantage of these. If you already have a good relationship established with your bank or want to finance with your credit card company, feel free to do so; you may be able to obtain an excellent rate right now.
The rent-to-own option can be a great thing for some people as well because it allows for a 90-day “same as cash” option. This means that if you rent to own for 90 days, you are responsible to make the payments in that amount of time (with the RTO company). If you pay off the amount in that timeframe, you will not be charged a fee. It is your choice, but RTO is a great option to at least have as an incentive for early payoff. In addition, many banks and credit card companies offer lowered rates so you may have several financial choices while shopping for RV covers and carports.
What Should I Keep in Mind?
When shopping for a covered place for campers, barns, garages, buildings, vertical roof, or installed style RV covers or an RV carport, you want to keep the following things in mind:
- How solid the structure is (this isn't the time to skimp - you want solid steel, not a cloth or tarp that’s going to rip)
- What are the dimensions or what is the size of your RV, motorhome or camper?
- You don't want it too big so you are not paying too much
- How tall should RV carports even be?? Is there such a thing as TOO TALL? But my RV is tall!
- Make sure it's not too small so you can expand those pop-outs or slide outs and have room to move.
- What is it made out of?
- You want the best bang for your buck so check:
- Framing gauge
- Roof style
- Roof gauge
- How can I prepare my ground for an RV cover?
- Do I need concrete?
- If so, what size should the concrete pad be?
- If I don’t need concrete, what are my options?
- What if I want asphalt or gravel instead?
- How long can I expect until it's installed?
- Are there still any delays because of the pandemic?
- Does where I live affect when my item gets installed?

Framing is an important aspect of a well-built structure. The materials and installation of metal RV covers make them solid enough to handle rain, snow, and sleet but still protect a boat, car, truck, or vehicle from the elements. These RV shelters can have style, different colors for sides and trim, and allow space while providing shelter on concrete, asphalt, gravel, or ground. They have a solid construction and are anchored, they are still affordable, and they have options for wind and snow load certification (where required).
If you want walls or a garage, (RV garages) you can protect your valuables with enclosed structures next to your own house. Doors and windows then become an option if you want to look at garages as a custom structure. Barns are also another option in a building, which we have a wide selection of. For now, we will be discussing portable RV covers and carports.
