Metal RV Carports for Campers and Motorhomes

A metal RV carport from Alan’s Factory Outlet is easy to set up and protects your vehicle from damage caused by harsh weather conditions with sturdy covered RV storage. Many of our RV carports for sale have a roof with one or two walls to form an effective RV canopy; the differences in design depend on the specific model. But no matter how you customize yours, our RV storage buildings can offer something unique to your property.

Choosing the Right Carport for Your Vehicle

At Alan’s Factory Outlet, we have RV shelters for sale made with sturdy metal sheets that wrap around the support structure to create a roof and two partial sides or a roof and one full side. Carports that are partially enclosed provide ventilation while still protecting your property. Another benefit of our partially enclosed RV carports is that you’ll have easy access to your vehicle to clean it, load it, or just climb in for a quick inspection. But if you prefer, we also have affordable RV storage that is entirely enclosed.

When you order one of our metal RV covers, you get a choice of three roof styles: regular, boxed eave, and vertical. There is an advantage to choosing a vertical roof for your RV: Metal carports with this type of roof don’t experience snow buildup. Because of the roof’s vertical sheeting, the snow slides off the side before it can accumulate. The regular and boxed-eave styles have sheeting that runs horizontally across the length of the building.

Why do our customers need motorhome covers? Metal RV covers prevent the snow, rain, and hail from causing rust and otherwise damaging your RV. Metal carports are stronger and offer more protection than a cloth tarpaulin: Cloth can cave in and tear, leaving your RV vulnerable to the elements. And you don’t even need to own an RV to benefit from camper covers: For RV owners, they offer protection for a costly vehicle, but if you’re not an RV owner, a portable RV carport can also serve as year-round shelter for your car, truck, motorcycle, or ATV. And once your carport is set up, it requires no additional maintenance.

Metal Carport Headroom, Center Clearance & Top Peak Clearance

Example 1: Regular Roof Carport

Let’s say you are considering buying a regular carport to house your RV that is 12' wide and 36' long with legs that stand 12' tall. This regular style carport will have legs that are 12' at the bottom of the bend. As you move toward the center of the carport, the height clearance will increase. At about 6" from the side, the carport is 1' taller, making the clearance 13'. All regular style carports are like this. At the center of the carport, the peak headroom clearance on these 12' leg and 12' wide carports are 14' 3", 2' 3" more than the leg height ordered. It is important to remember that this isn’t the headroom of the carport, but the clearance above the braces and the trusses.

Regular Roof System Center Brace Clearance & Peak Height

Width Center Brace Clearance Peak Height
12' 2' 3" 2' 9"
18' 2' 9" 3' 3"
20' 2' 8" 3' 4"
22' 2' 8" 3' 6"
24' 3' 1" 3' 11"
26' 2' 5" 4' 6"
28' 2' 4" 4' 6"
30' 2' 4" 4' 9"

Example 2: Boxed-Eave & Vertical Roof

The boxed eave and vertical style carports both have A-frame gable roofs and both styles feature the same headroom clearance. The styles do differ in other ways; the vertical style carport roof has sheeting that goes up and down while the boxed eave style has sheeting that runs the length of the carport. Vertical roof styles have the advantage of having rain and snow slide off them easily. So let's say you are looking to buy a 12'x36' boxed eave or vertical roof carport with 12' legs to store your RV. With the 12' legs, the headroom clearance in the middle of the carport is 1'7" taller for a total height of 13'7". The top peak at the top of the truss is also 2'2" taller for a total height of 14'2".

Boxed-Eave & Vertical Roof System Center Brace Clearance & Peak Height

Width Center Brace Clearance Peak Height
12' 1' 7" 2' 2"
18' 2' 8" 3' 2"
20' 2' 6" 3' 4"
22' 2' 5" 3' 6"
24' 2' 7" 3' 8"
26' 1' 3" 3' 9"
28' 1' 2" 3' 11"
30' 1' 2" 4'
