What kind of fabric are you using under the crushed concrete?

The fabric looks like a geotextile. It will be great for holding the load and separating the crushed concrete from the base material.

How does the cost of crushed concrete compare to the cost of a similar size crush gravel?

Are you going to place rubber pads under the rv tires to keep the tires off of the crushed concrete?

The fabric is a landscape fabric we got from Costco. It is 4' W X 220'L and it is supposed to be commercial grade. It cost us about $30 per role.

It did pretty good overall. The dump pulled a little bit of it out of whack but not too bad.

The 3/4 minus crushed concrete is $14.50/yard and the 3/4 minus gravel is $23.50/per yard.

Had planned on putting down the plastic stacking leveling blocks that we have because we are going to get a pair of the wedge shaped leveler blocks. Rubber sounds like a good idea though.

I thought is was geotextile but couldn't tell from the photos. We use it for many purposes. It's great for keeping soils segregated and if there is a water intrusion, it will prevent the fines from infiltrating the base.

That definitely looks real close doesn't it?

PVC Sleeves are good. I ran 2 4" sleeves across mine in two locations. I later used them to run water and electric, with a couple spares for irrigation or whatever.

Not at the site specifically no. I have water and power available nearby so that is what I use.

If that's to protect the tires from the crushed concrete I don't see why. Crushed gravel is just as sharp and I've never know it to damage tires.

Concrete (cement) and rubber have a chemical reaction that does not benefit the tires.

Wow, I didn't know that. Sounds like if you have a concrete slab you want to do the same think or epoxy paint the slab.

Thanks

I guess I should re-think parking my cars and motorcyles in the garage/driveway!
