What type of RV are you parking by your house. I opted for a 12x 40 foot cement slab for my 38ft diplomat.
I live in FL and the ground where I am at is relatively soft. I also don't want any water sitting under my MH. Bugs, rust, and animals will be the result. Tires sitting in dirt can't be good either. Gravel works well I understand as long as the area has good rain drainage. I'm not parked here very much so I don't have a cover yet. I travel at least 9 months a year.
That's my 2cents.

That's what I like about this site ... good suggestions. Guess I had better rethink this project. If I go with building a special drive, how thick would you recommend the concrete or crushed rock be? Ron

That will depend on your base? If you are on well drained hard packed sand you won't need much at all. If you're in clay that collects water every time it rains that may not be near enough?

Concrete should be at least 4 - 6 inches thick on a solid base. If you get a local concrete firm to do the project, they will know how thick it should be, as long as you tell them what it is for. It will need wire mesh in it or rebar to prevent it from cracking and it will still need a good gravel base under it.
