You'll love it. We built a port for our coach last summer. Shoulda done it a long time ago & saved years of wrestling the big cloth cover.

Nice job. I would also like to do something like that. Not sure our codes would allow it...

Can I ask how much it cost? We're thinking of doing something similar but I think what we had in mind was too expensive.

It was a little pricey but well worth it to protect it from the weather $3500 installed

Sounds cheap to me A year ago we paid $5000.00 installed. Ours measures 12 ft wide by 14 ft. high by 40 ft. long. the sides are enclosed and so is the back with the front open. BillP.

That's about what ours ran for a 16ft wide x 15ft high (peak) x 51ft long port.

No bragging here it's not fully enclosed if it wa it would have been close to 5000 but I also had problems with the company so I did get a break so not worth the problems

Very nice!

We're going to be shopping around for a cover later this year. Thanks for giving me an idea of what they cost. I was hoping to keep it around $4,000.00. Maybe we can.

Can you share with us what company makes this unit? Also, how is it anchored to the ground? It doesn't look like concrete in the pic.
thanks,
Rod

it is bolted to the ground with concrete anchors and yes it is on concrete
as far as the company i dont want to bad mouth anyone openly but i should say it was more the employees of the company that installed it and the company made it right
