I'm looking for help/advice for a portable vinyl/fabric shelter to cover our Class A 30 foot motor home. Can anyone direct me to a good web site or vendor? My parking pad next to the house is gravel, long enough for a 40 foot RV, but will only take about a 12 foot wide shelter. I'd like to purchase a shelter that I can disassemble and store when we are traveling if there is such a shelter out there??

Hi Willy,
Go here and here to see samples of what is available. You'll need to scroll down the pages to understand your choices.

I don't know much about these shelters but I would think anything big enough to house a 40 footer would be tough to take up & down. Good luck.

Willynojob (you gotta lov it)

If you want to jury-rig one, get two 20 foot carports from Pep boys for $60 apiece. Then go to Lowes and get 12 1 1/4 inch 10ft electrical conduit pipe. Insert the pipe that come with the carport into the 1 1/4 pipe. Drill holes in the pipe to place at the right hight. You might want to drive landscape post at each corner into the ground for more stability and clap the pipe to these post. then put the carports on top. This will require some guy-wires to keep the wind from blowing the top off. Not much to look at, but it would be okay in the back yard and it would be easy to take down and keep the tarp off your MH. s/Toby

Howdy Gary,

Thank you for the two sites, I've been smurfing them and now have them on my "favorites" list.

Amazing the knowledge that is out there for the asking on iRV2.

Thanks again,

Willynojob

If you want to get by cheaper, just use landscape post instead of the pipe. It would require some drilling to get a hole deep enough to put the carport post into and just sink the post into the ground. Let us know how it works. s/Toby
