Metal Shelters For a Car, RV, Boat or Animal Shelter

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Sat, Oct 6, 2012

Protect your car, rv, boat or animal with Metal Shelters at Alan's Factory Outlet

The metal shelters are delivered as a kit and built on site.  These metal carport kits provide and economical way to cover your car, truck, tractor, rv, boat and animal from the heat of the sun, rain, snow, hail and ice helping it last longer and in the case of the animals making their life more comfortable.  Some people have also used the metal shelters as a picnic shelter.

metal shelters

This is a vertical style metal shelter which is a metal 2 car garage with lean to shelter just on one side.  A lean to can be added to just one side or both sides depending on your needs.  All of the metal shelters can be partially enclosed or fully enclosed and turned into a metal garage.

metal animal shelter for horses

An animal shelter with a lean to on both sides.  This metal horse shelter has the lean to closed with the center portion open and used a a run in area for the horse or horses.  If your looking for a wood horse shelter, Alan's Factory Outlet has a wide variety of board and batten horse shelters which come standard with a metal roof.

Another animal that people get this metal shelter for is for dogs.  Many times they have a chain link fence and put this over top of it to help keep the dog or dogs dry or cooler in the summer months and of course keep the snow off of them in the winter months.  Other people have first bought the metal animal shelter and than closed it in after we set it up or have had us partially or fully enclose it for them.

The most popular use of the metal shelters is for a metal carport cover to protect their car probably because the vehicle most people have is a car due to the fact that the car is the  most affordable vehicle to drive due to the mpg they have between fill ups.  The second most common use would be to protect a truck due the the hauling capabilities that a truck gives you that most cars are unable to provide.  The steel car ports are made with 14 ga tubing but can be made with a thicker 12 ga tubing which gives you a 20 year rust through warranty.

The metal shelters are manufactured by Carolina Carports and are delivered and installed in 27 states in the USA.  Here is a list of the states we service on the steel shelters:  AL, AR, DE, DC, FL, GA, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MD, MS, MO, NE, NJ, NY, NC, OH, OK, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA and WV.

Deciding what size metal shelter to get for you car, rv, boat or animal shelter

  • If your storing a vehicle under the shelter you will want to measure the length and width of each vehicle along with the peak height to make sure you will have a carport that is wide enough, long enough and has the proper leg height.
  • If it is to replace an existing animal shelter it is a good idea to obtain the measurements for the current shelter that will be replaced and if you will be getting additional animals you will want to allocate additional space for that.
  • If your getting a rv shelter you may want some extra space to open the sides of the motor home and you could also partially close the sides with a 3' wide panel for a little more protection on the paint from the sun and weather elements.

The metal shelters can make a great picnic area to grill under or relax and enjoy the fresh outside air kind of like the backyard gazebo kit shelters but unlike the gazebo kits they are made with steel instead of the gazebos which only come in wood, cedar or vinyl.  Another difference is the gazebo kit is a do it yourself kit, but the metal structures are built on site for you in most cases in just one day if not a few hours depending on the size you buy.

metal carport shelter

This is a more traditional regular style metal carport shelter with the rounded sides.  The steel car ports are anchored to the ground, asphalt or cement.  The one thing we need is a level area to place the carport.

metal boat shelter

As you can see these metal shelters make a really nice boat shelter.  This carport shelter has a 3' panel on both sides and a front and back end gable for additional strength and a little more protection to block some of the rain from coming in.

metal rv shelter

A metal rv shelter that is fully enclosed and turned into a rv metal garage with a garage door.  The rv metal shelters are made as long as you need them to be the price list only shows up to 41' long but we can actually make them longer by attached 2 carports end to end in what ever length you need.

So whether your looking for a metal shelter to protect your car, motor home, boat or animal Alan's Factory Outlet has you covered.
