Very nice. Are you doing the work yourself? Looks like you did a great job dealing with the drainage. You had about the same drainage considerations as I did, with the cross slope.

Pictures taken just after completion. 40'wide, 60' deep, 15' high. The interior looks like I have the lights on, nope, that's the ridge-pole skylight.

Looks like it'll do the job. That's close to what mine will look like - I'll eventually build swinging doors for the front and at least from the picture I think mine will be a couple of feet wider (18 ft). What company is this one from?

Very good looking!! What did you do to the concrete to make it shiny?

It's from TNT Carports via Carports.com. The dimensions are 16X46. It's wide enough that I can open all four of my slides with a bit of room to spare.

It's anchored with a dozen 4' spikes and eight mobile home anchors.

I originally contracted through Morton for the building. I sub-contracted an excavator that usually does Morton contracts under their recommendation.

The concrete was still very green at that point. I could walk on it but nothing more. You can see the concrete dust from sawing the grooves.
I didn't do my homework first, and bought the wrong concrete sealer. What I bought comes off with gasoline. I wanted gas-proof sealer, my bad.

Well, travel trailer carport is now up. Photos attached. The process started a couple of weeks ago with site prep. Then last Friday they started installation at 7 am. Stopped at 5:30, and then finished up in about 4 hrs on Saturday morning. Still on the to do list are installing electrical, and building/installing the swing-out doors discussed earlier in this thread.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Well Gang,
Here's ours. We just recently moved to Lake Havasu City AZ, approximately 6 months ago. The RV garage is 16 x 53. We had to move the Horizon out temporarily due to the fact that we'd just purchased a boat and I had to do some buffing on it. The RV and two-car are air conditioned via a 7500 cu.ft. swamp cooler. For a large percentage of the year, it sure makes for nice tinkering in there. I had the floors professionally epoxy coated and stripped prior to us moving in. Sure makes for nice, clean, sealed floors in case anything is spilled.

They're gray/black and white speckled. The only problem, it also makes it hard to find little screws when you drop them. Anyway, it's sure is nice to have the it inside and protected. Especially from that Arizona heat when we're not in it traveling.
Scott

Very Nice! In the process of having ours built now. Will be doing the epoxy coating too.
