Permanent electrical pending although full light during the day. Easy access and all four slide-outs can be opened.
I looked at this idea also, but I wonde about rodents etc. them dang red squirrels eat up snything rubber.. I might use concrete and steel siding and roof.
I have seen them eat the wring off my pickup.

All that matters is that it does the job you want and expect from it.

Yes its been up for a year and has handled the high winds here in Vegas just fine, so far it survived a 60 mph wind.
A very practical solution to the problem. It looks like it will work very well.

Steve,

Love the design, I actually designed almost the same thing in CAD for the new property a few weeks ago. Care to share any additional pic's or specs on the inside setup? I designed mine with a loft on one side for storage.

Thanks,

Jack

All I can say is WOW! Not only for the barn, but for the whole spread at the foot of the mountains. What is you elevation?

That's very nice. Look like the stands should be VERY heavy judging by the amount of concrete used. Having the netting rather than solid canvas allows for much of the wind to pass through. What's really nice is that you just make it longer if you got a longer coach.

I think that would even work in snow areas but you'd have to use a pitched roof and solid material rather than netting on the roof.

Can you post more data such as what you use for the netting and frame along with just how large are those concrete pads.

I love that RV barn. If it was painted red it would look like a great old barn you see in so many pictures. Great job.

10 foot length galvanized chain link poles, comes out of cement 3 poles like a rohn tower than down to 2 poles going up to the top and across to other side, the concrete pads are 20 gal plastic trash cans with tops cut off and into ground about 5 inch's with rebar thru cans into ground, poles sunk into high strength cement and decorative rocks on top on cement, the fabric is a high quality 80 percent sun block used for farming/gardens, it comes custom size with grommet's, 7 year warranty on fabric..

I chose this route because it cost me just under $3000 and all the material was bought at Lowes and sun shade fabric online.


I have slide outs on both sides of RV and the carport shade is 18 ft wide, 38 ft long and 14 ft tall, with full hookups in my back yard this becomes a 2nd home in my back yard and still allows some sun into RV and it stays so cool during the summer, no heat build up under cover..

Lets see your coach garage

No thrills here in Denton, Tx. $100 a month with 15 amp service. Just enough room for a 45 footer. Click image for larger version
