Shade Structures - Car Port Type

Folks: I live in Tucson Arizona. We live on over 3 acres and have lots of space, but, no shade for the RV. Been 1.5 years and it is getting burned up by the sun. I see some kits on-line for like $3-4k to do a build it yourself steel structure for shade. Anyone try one of these? Any recommendations for companies or styles? Ours is a 35' rig, not a very valuable rig, but it is our second home. Thank you!

VersaTube is easily erected, you can do it yourself with one or two friends in a day or two. I think they moved their plant this year from Casa Grande to Tolleson. I get the roof & siding sheeting from MBCI who also have a plant in Tolleson.

If you intend to keep your home on 3 ac for years to come, you might consider something like this. I hired 3 friends to help me put it up, over two weekends.

carports.com here. Very fair pricing from what I know, and they are throughout the US.

I had a great experience with Carolina Carports. You provide a prepped space for them to install, and they come out and do that. I would caution only that whoever you're working with locally provide the permits.
