Pod Port ( Car port)

Hello All

I like to purchase a car port to cover my R Pod 178.... The length of the pod is about 19-20 ft.

I am thinking of getting a

26 ft long
12 ft wide
12 ft tall
side would be cover with 6ft ( half)


21 ft long
12 ft wide
12 ft tall
sides would be cover ( full)

Need to watch cost .... They would come out about the same give or take.

Which one should I get? Note: I live in Colorado so thinking the sides cover would be best due to snow/hail/ etc.

I'd go with the longer car port. You never know when you might want to get a little bigger trailer. It would be cheaper to add the sides later than to add length.

Build it for your future RV today.

Use the metal RV port configuration tools to get the most you can for the dollar - increasing size does not increase price until you pass a next standard dimension.
