Need metal RV shelter

Any recomendations on a free standing pole barn type of RV shelter? Roof and legs, not ready for walls. Any recommendations on who to work with or thoughts on who to avoid? Where do you start?

Not cloth, if that's what you mean, metal roof. Thanks.

This idea has worked well for me. Here on the Canadian prairies most farmers have had to go big and replace their metal grain bins with larger ones. I
purchased 2 - 13.5 foot diameter bins and used the bin walls to make this
RV shelter. Each section was 2.5 feet high and it took 4 sections to go right around the bin. After it was dis-assemble and brought home, 2 sections
where bolted together to make the 180 degree roof and then the rest bolted
side by side. So when done, the roof is 13.5 feet wide and 40 feet long mounted on 2x8's bolted to 6x6 posts. Very in-expensive, in my case about
$1300 , $300 of which was to buy all new nuts & bolts with the rubber seals
to put all the sections together.
