The shelter is going up in SC. A little town called Jefferson. That would be about 3.5 hours from Henderson NC.

Thanks GottaRunGottaCamp. Still deciding on replacing or raising an repairing. Due to damage from a falling tree branch. I would need to install as it has to be modified due to driveway slope in two direction, so could probably order from anywhere.

If you can't go longer, than maybe you can go wider? Make it as big as you can afford. I had a 32 foot greyhawk, and I went 14 x 40 feet. This gave me some extra room to put a slide out, but also room to add some long rows of 2x10 shelving all the way down for some much needed storage. If you can, bring the metal all the way to the ground where the sun hits it. I added full metal to the ground in back,and eastern side and half way down the other side. Very little sun touched the rig. Plus it's long enough for that 40 foot rig I'm thinking about.

As others have said, go way bigger than initial need. When I changes MH, needed 3 more feet. Mfg Carolina carport would not sell me 5’(comes in 5’ increments) but would be glad to sell me 20’, shortest they sell, and I use what I needed!!. Ended up stick building what I needed and got matching metal roofing locally.

My 2007 Wiinnebago Acess, resides in a 30’ x12’ “All Steel” carport....a few inches of front are out. But that seems work...wider would have been nice.

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.

You'll never say "Wish I had gone smaller", but you might say "Wish I had gone bigger".
