Hey everyone. I just bought a road warrior 413. I am wanting to keep it under a shed or covered up so the sun doesn't beat it up. So far I have found some metal sheds for 6 grand. Are there any other options for it? What is everyone else doing to put their camper under a shed?

Building a pole barn for my new Sundance. 20 x 40 x 14...haven't decided if I want a metal roof or if I will go with the new fabric material that lasts 20 years. You see them all over on the military bases. The kit for the fabric, poles and fabric cable is only $7900. All metal for the pole barn and roof is $7000.

My RV Port was installed up for abt $4600. It is 18x45 with 12' sidewalls. With the peaked roof it clears a 13'6" tall RV with no problem. I had them upgrade the supports and metal roofing to heavier gauge metal. It faces due North and the west side has a 4' wall. It is surrounded by trees so I didn't need full height walls. The east side faces the house. It was put on an existing slab.

Clif:
That looks nice, was this a kit? I was looking at large 4x4 metal posts in 3x3x3 footers. I thought about the lighter metal but worried about the wind load...we can get high winds and we have had micro bursts up to 90 mph...The west side of this future project will be protected by the barn so I am going to think about fabric on the east side only.
I haven't started the project yet as I am still searching prices.

Cliff, That really looks good. Don't remember that at Quanah? Are you going to Alpine? Dave Tyler, in real West Texas.

This is where it came from but it won't help much in NC. The price I paid was an installed at my site price. It's hard to see but there is a 5' wide opening toward the back on each side with no floor piece. I have a storage building on the other side with a ramp and wanted access with a 2 wheeler without a hump. I went with 12' walls as above that gets very pricey and it worked out well. As I said I went with the heavier uprights, 12ga, and heavier roof material. At 18' wide I can shade the RV to the slide side and have plenty of room on the other and still get the slides out. If you want on the roof you have to crawl but it can be done.

The roof is 26ga and the installed price, tax and all, was $4653

I couldn't figure out how to get it to Quanah..... Until summer of 2018 my travel schedule is on a month by month basis due to Millie's commitment to the VFW. I never know what she is going to do.

Great thread and timely for me! Gregg W, our CO chapter leader and I were chatting tonight and he asked me if I'd seen this thread. I am planning on having a 17'x72' (16' sides) pole barn built to cover my truck and RV. This will get me a 16' wide interior floor. I am leaving the front open, sheeting the north side all the way to the bottom and the south side (close to the house and the door side) 6' down (leaving 10' open to the bottom). The back will be sheeted all the way down.

Due to being so close to my house and up against an AC unit and a large basement egress window well, I did not want to go putting in a stem wall - just too invasive for a sensitive area. So I am opting for a pole barn style. It will use a pier foundation with glue-lam posts going into the concrete piers.

Though I am in an unincorporated area of El Paso county (Colorado), the codes are the same as in an incorporated city in this county. So, engineered and sealed plans for the foundation and the building (another $1200).

Installed - I'm looking at $17k for the building, $1200 for engineering and $500 for permits. Plus whatever it will cost to do a zoning variance for side-yard setback (did I say Ugh! yet?). Oh - plus the flat work at about $6 per square foot. Gonna be some bucks!

Here' a rendering...

Not sure if this works or not, but I have seen many of them around our area and people still using them. I own one at our camp ground for storage of smaller items and so far 6 years and still looks good.

As long as you anchor them down correctly they will stay in place.

Nice looking RV shelter Rick! Did you put that on a stem wall? Was that a code requirement where you are?

richheck
07-29-2016, 11:47 AM
Yes Jim, put it on stem walls, bottom of stem is 12 by 12 with 6 by 8 riser. Total of 18 tall with rebar throughout. Just poured front and back stem walls, both 6 in wide by 12 deep reinforced also being the walls are 14 ft tall. Want it to be the last one I build. Hopefully this will allow the new Arlington to last a long time. Jerrod has been over to see it and was pleased. I'm looking forward on meeting you in the near future, how did your Calistoga plans go?

Thanks for the detail. I believe I will have 20 piers at 36" deep that the posts will sit in. That ought to keep it anchored in the winds we get in CO.

I have not completely decided if I can make Bob and Patty's SoCal rally yet. So much going on with the new house. As it is, we will move in and hit the road. No time to really get settled or get much done before we have to head west, so we may want to come back home after the Jackson rally.

07-29-2016, 12:07 PM
Sounds like you have it under control, I chose the solid stem wall over the piers being the barn is in an open area and I did not want it moving. As far as Calistoga info, IM me if you need thing that I may be able to help you with. We are scheduled to go back up there in October for a couple of weeks ( that's why we can't make Vegas of Jackson ).

Safe travels

Just called Winslow and got a great price of $3,606.85 for a 20 x 40 x 12 side with a peak of 14' with the upgraded steel and roofing. Big kicker is the shipping at $3 per mile is $3,228.02....this still beats the pricing I have from other vendors so far.
Of course this means I will have to do the install..

Gary,

Make sure you order your building with the ribs going vertical vs horizontal, most everyone I have talked to had issues with the horizontal orientation, leaking at the overlaps and holding both rain and dirt in the valleys. It is an upgrade to go with the vertical orientation but you won't be sorry. Mine is 24 wide to allow opening of all slides and most of the awning if needed to dry, 48 ft long to accommodate the 44 ft coach and 14 ft tall opening for entry and exit. Last week I did the Dometic TSB 99-1-19 update on my two a 'so and was able to walk without ducking almost the entire length of the coach.

Garry - if you're looking for a shelter with metal framing, look up VersaTube (https://www.versatube.com/building-kits/carports-shelters/). I watched Mark Polk's video on one he built into a regular garage. Anyway, they have a neat online cost calculator.

Got a text from Bill S from SoTX tonight suggesting I look into National Barn Company (http://www.nationalbarn.com/division.php) as they built his many years ago and it has survived 2 hurricanes. Turns out, that's who I'd already selected. I'm working with a couple here in Colorado Springs that owns the Colorado franchise. Great people.

Dave, I love the Titan brakes. Big rigs should not leave the factory without them. The pics are at our farm and the green is clover and natural grasses for deer and turkey. We have a big garden fenced in with an additional electric fence in the middle of that field. Looking out the rear window of the BH is an acre pond with an orchard to it's left and another 1/2 acre pond over the ridge. I plan to place metal panels about 4-6 feet down on the west side. We live in the BH when we are staying there 2-6 days every week.

After seeing everyone's prices for covers. I'm so happy to say our 24ft wide x 48ft long 16ft high at the side pole barn inclosed other then the 14ft opening for the front door. Cost us without concrete flooring $5200. That is all sides and roof 26 gauge metal. 36" walk in door. Don't plan on doing concrete, as putting down Limestone base. And a truck load of convener belting to cover that. The belting is free and just can't see pouring concrete when its not needed for our use.

This took three days and three Amish with hand drills putting in the screws. Its unreal to watch these guys work. They priced the building out at what there labor was. And I bought the metal and lumber. He figured it close there was 2 20ft 2x4's extra and one 2x12x16 they did not use.:cool: Should have power and water to it this winter. Will be putting in full hookup's. That way if its needed we have it. And if someone needs a place to hookup for a day or so its there also.
