Black walnuts are very messy when the start shelling out in the fall of the year. (We've had them on our properties) They stain and the husks on the nuts themselves are just downright nasty . They don't call them 'black' walnuts for nothing.

So, you will be moving soon, in 6 months? Consider instead parking at a storage lot for $50/month or so. 50x6 = $300. done. cheapest option.
That tree is a nightmare. No way out. Waste to spend on a building if you are moving.

Gas is going up up up. Feel pain. Hyperinflation is rearing its head. $4/gallon, maybe $5 in some western states looming. Save your money, you will need it for gas!!!

No fabric, that is another nightmare.

just tarp it or put an RV cover over it if you must park it there under the hell trees...

Well, you are trying to have you cake and eat it too. Maybe.
I remember as a kid, those **** trees thing my grandma’s beautiful 71 Buick Centurion.
Seems you’ve sort of painted yourself into a corner options wise.
But save for losing solar....do you need that anyway? Parked full time and no power?
I’d be thinking shade screen, like orchards use. They’re about $100. Make a gable frame out of pvc on your roof . I’d say use lumber but if you do you could probably buy the carport with lumber prices now!
Make a gable frame, drape shade cloth over it. Tie it down to underside of camper or stakes in the ground. Solves every issue save for getting solar

Anything is better then nothing. In a good year for the trees the fruit? Or it it a nut? Can do some dammage. I got rid of my trees. They atually cracked the roof of my shead. I feel your pain. And no one in jersey wanted the wood.

Two of these should get you through for $100.
Sun Shade Sails
Choose the 12 x 16 size so you have some overlap and can angle them to the front and back so the Walnuts don't lay on them or roll into the center and end up on the coach roof.

Our last set over our deck lasted us about 7 years. Without walnut falling on them of course.

I have heard that old line forever. I have about 300 black walnuts and never have been offered anything near that. I don't know where that came from Black Walnut is the dominant species around here and considered by most to be a trash tree.

That’s what I was looking at, but a 10 x 20 which would cover panels and vents. And I’m not worried about the solar being functional while under it, just protected.

Pitch thats hard to believe. I sold the ones that used to line my driveway for far more than that, they even dug up the roots claimed they sold them to Germany to make pipes. You look the right place you sure can sell them and they do the cutting

Not sure if you've ever checked this info before. No real-world experience in lumber pricing, I've just been interested in reading as a woodworker since construction lumber has shoot through the roof.
