Table of Contents show

We all love to hit the road for some adventure, but in many cases we don’t choose to use our RV full-time.

It’s a sad thought, but a lot of RVs have to spend some time in storage.

Storing an RV presents all sorts of problems. 

One way to protect your RV from falling branches, dusty air, bad weather, and the sun is to build a shelter for it.

Making a carport for a 32 foot Bounder motorhome

Bounderfull on YouTube made a great video explaining the steps he took in creating an outdoor shelter for his 32 foot Bounder motorhome.

Some quick facts on the build:

  • dedicated a flat part of his yard for a 38 foot long by 15 foot wide gravel pad
  • hired a small excavator to dig out topsoil
  • laid down sand, some filter fabric used in road construction, and gravel
  • compacted the gravel himself
  • had workers install 36 foot long by 14 foot wide by 12 foot tall carport
  • carport is made from 12 gauge structural tubing
  • snow load 55 pounds per square foot
  • can withstand wind gusts up to 90 MPH
