Is this for storage or for living in the C under the cover?

Mostly storage. We may have guests stay in it from time to time. We wanna keep the sun and rain from destroying the roof as much as possible within a reasonable budget.

Mine is 20x40 12' legs, class C is 30.5L bumper to bumper, 8'W 11-4H
Like most, I wish I had gone 4' wider & 8' longer.

I dont have the space to go any bigger so I think I will stick with what I have! I could downsize the RV to fit if its too small [emoticon]

You know the how it is with boats and "2foot-itis".

My advice is to make the building as large as your property can accommodate, within reason of coarse. Build it bigger than your rig needs because life changes. Suddenly it's too small and you'll be kicking yourself over your decision to make it just big enough. Maybe you'll never own a larger motor home, but later want to store other things inside, if not for yourself, then for family & friends.

Mine is 30X12 and its been up over 20 years, Needs to be higher instead of raising it I'm thinking of replacing it. Any advice on a good company in the Tampa bay area where a kit could be purchased?

I'm a project manager for an industrial contractor and buy approx. two of these per year for customers and never use the same company, start your internet search and watch for deliver dates, the last one I order had a 10 week delivery and they called me 4 weeks later to add another 4 weeks to make it 14 week delivery.

I assume these places are just resellers of the same units, good point.

A standard size from our supplier was 14' x 36' which is what I went with for 31' fifth wheel. 12 ft. side walls is plenty high for 13.5' trailer. The ends do get wet in blowing rain but roof stays dry and shaded. Am able to extend my slides while trailer is under cover. One slide is 40". Pretty happy as the storage is trailer specific.

I think there is a manufacturer of these structures in Henderson, NC. Not a re-seller or installer but a manufacturer. Don't know how close that is to you
