copyright nachoman-au Two Tabbert T@b caravans on display Wikipedia defines “travel trailer” as: “A travel trailer or caravan is towed behind a road vehicle to provide a place to sleep which is more comfortable and protected than a tent (although there are fold-down trailer tents).[1][2] It provides the means for people to have their own home on a journey or a vacation, without relying on a motel or hotel, and enables them to stay in places where none is available.”

So how can you protect your RV or travel trailer from rain, snow, mildew, wind or mold?

You see them driving all over the freeways, interstates and highways in many states; whether you see travel trailers or RV homes, pop-ups or 5th wheels. People love to travel from cold places like Iowa, Illinois or Wisconsin to warm places like Florida or Georgia in an RV or travel trailer. Have you ever wondered where people store these fine RVs and a home away from home?

A carport or garage, otherwise called an “RV cover” is a great place to keep a travel trailer. An RV fits nicely under an RV cover designed just for that purpose. RV covers should be taller than typical carports and protect the top and sides of an RV so that it does not sustain any water damage or acquire moisture.

14' wide x 36' long x 12' leg height x 15' 2" peak heightYou have made an investment and now you are faced with a decision. You do not want leaks or cracks in a seal to develop over time because your lovely motor home, pop-up or trailer was exposed to the elements. We all know that the weather can do serious damage to our expensive RVs or travel trailers or any items we own over time. It just makes sense to protect these valuable investments with an RV cover, carport, garage or similar sturdy structure. There are many important considerations when pondering this type of purchase.

Investment: A simple carport starts as low as $595 and additional features go from there. There are many factors to take into consideration but the main factor is your investment. It takes money to buy anything and in order to protect it with a sturdy structure, this also takes money so you want to be sure that you are spending your money wisely and getting the best deal you can.

Ground: Another factor to consider is the ground area where your structure will be placed; is the ground level within 9 inches? Do you want the ground to have concrete or asphalt before the structure is erected? Will you need to have the ground prepared in advance of the structure’s placement so that getting in and out of the area and/or parking a trailer, etc. becomes easier for you in the future?

Structure: Some considerations regarding the structure itself would be: Do you want a structure that covers the top and sides? Would you prefer the coverage include the top, sides and back? Perhaps you may want all sides closed with a door and a window or two and a concrete floor. There are many factors involved in the layout of a protective structure. Note that our RV Covers and carport structures are available in 12 gauge or 14 gauge steel framing with 29 gauge steel panels on the roof and sides.  Also, see the pictures to notice just some of the many choices of side coverage available on these tall carports.

Area: More factors for consideration in certain areas of the USA include: Will a permit be required in the area where the work will be done? How about wind and snow load requirements, do these apply to you? Are you familiar with engineering prints? Where required, we provide engineered drawings with wind or snow load certifications.16' wide x 51' long x 12' leg height x 15' 4" peak height

Taking all of these factors into consideration, you can ask yourself if you feel you should buy a cover for your travel trailers sheds or metal carports kits for travel trailers.  This is a good subject to consider and perhaps one to revisit as the seasons change.
