You should check out one of those boards for the stove.
When I added up the cost of rental or putting up the RV cover, It would pay for itself in two years. Plus give us a place to park the car and tractor under along with two riding lawn mowers. Putting 'her' car under was one of my selling points

We are paying 55$ a month for the storage. My problem is if I built a car port or pole barn I would need to build a long access drive and take down a lot of trees.

Cost here was 100 a month 40 foot all enclosed. I could put the MH and my 1971 mustang in with it. I ended up selling the mustang. I only had to trim two trees so get the MH along side the house. I ended up painting the barn because the New Cover made it look bad

Very nice house for your motor home. Did you construct it your self as in a kit or professionally constructed, look professional to me. What is the cost of a nice motorhome cover like that and where there any local code / inspections required? Where we lived in CA I couldn’t cut down a tree without a permit! No loner live there!

Thanks, It was professionally done. Four guys had it up in 6 hours. It cost me $3000.00 No local codes here as I live out in the country.

That's a great price.

Even though I am in a some what rural area there are codes. I only have a 1.2 acre lot so not a lot of space as house and gardens take up 70% of it.

This sets on the place that the garden was. we could tend the garden or go traveling. The RV won I am starting an antenna farm for the ham radio on the property. That is all the farming I can handle.

We have 10 acres here but the only flat spot was next to the house. The other flat spot is covered by laterals for the septic system. I had one other place I could put it but it could be viewed from the road and this location is hard to see from the road. My driveway is 350 feet to the road from the house with trees in between.

Just spent the afternoon at the Daybreak lining cabinets with reflectix.

It was 5F when I arrived and got the coach up to 65f after a couple of hours using the furnace and 2 oil filled radiators.

When I got to the bedroom cabinets I noticed some frozen moisture on the back wall, have started a thread over on the main forum.

The slide was in and noticed a draft coming in from under it.
