To carport or not to carport, that is the question.
Good afternoon all.
I just picked up a new Thor Gemini. I'm considering a carport or some kind of covered storage.
I live in the desert area of So Cal. Winter temps don't get much below freezing too much, but summer temps can be 115 to 120 in the afternoon for much of the summer.
We won't be using the coach more than a couple of weekends a month so it's going to sit a lot.
I'm concerned about sun based exterior damage and component damage on the inside from excessive heat.
With that being said, should I be concerned and to what extent?
Option #1 - Wide, tall and long enough to just fit with some extra room and full side walls $2,200 ($3,000 with permits, engineering fees etc)
Option #2 I could go wide enough to fit over my whole parking apron behind the garage 25' X 45' and park other cars. I don't know if i'd go much taller than i need now. 11' I was thinking of going taller, to fit future coach, but really if I need taller in the future, I'll also need much longer and that won't fit the drive apron. $5,500 with permits etc.
So need some advice. 1) should I worry, 2) if so, what would you build?
