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

Check out the video below to see how he did it.
