Brad - that is undoubtedly what I will wind up doing. If hurricane Michael taught me anything it is that I don't want an aluminum carport style cover. Several around me blew to kingdom come.

I had to cart several pieces of an aluminum car barn out of my back yard; the barn was 2 houses away. Pieces were scattered even further away.

I’m going to eat my words on this one. My physician has an aluminum carport that once covered his boat. It is 6 feet shorter than I need but the price is right. I can get it moved for $400. All I have to do is to get the Histerical Society to give approval to the move and I’m ready.

My question regards the height. It has 10 ft legs and a peaked roof. It’s 12’ wide and 30’ Long. I can’t get up to measure in the center.

Will that work?

BYW. I would never leave the bus in the barn during a hurricane. I take it out in the country and park in a pasture.

Think that is too short.

By itself it is probably to short, but you could build a knee wall to put the legs on and raise it up 2-3 feet.

Your going to want at least 13' at the lowest part of the roof. I have a 14' door and the various antenna still rub. The ceiling in my garage is 16' which allows me to get up on the roof of the bus but I have to crawl. Sounds to me that when you figure the cost of moving, added cost of raising it high enough, you might be just as well off to start from scratch with something high enough in the first place.
