The Benefits of Steel RV Carports

RV cover

RV Carports have come a long way since their original design containing four poles and a roof. The variety of carports now includes wood, aluminum, and steel carports which can be customized to serve a variety of needs. For many people, choosing between these construction materials is the first decision to be made when buying RV carports.


While each of these materials can provide solutions under specific circumstances, steel RV carports can provide several benefits over both wood and aluminum structures.   

* The ability to build customized RV carports – Steel RV carports have advanced to the point where they are often used for purposes well beyond protecting vehicles. Steel RV carports can be upgraded to provide additional storage, living areas, and work space. Customization options for the exterior of the structures can include choices of colors, roofing design options, doors, windows, and finishes.

* Flexibility – Steel RV carports are available in sizes to cover one to three RV’s but they provide enough flexibility to suit protection requirements for boats, farm equipment, snowmobiles and more. This flexibility allows for a buyer to build a steel RV carport to solve specific needs while not overspending or buying a bigger structure than is necessary.

* Strength –  Steel RV carports are far stronger than structures made with either wood or aluminum because metal does not deteriorate like wood does and can bear loads and stand up to extreme weather better than aluminum.  The strength of steel RV carports comes from the fact that steel does not weaken over time due to expansion and contraction that wood experiences when it is heated or cooled. RV carports made from wood can also be weakened by warping, termites, and dry rot over the years, which can require extensive repair and or maintenance.

* Affordability – Steel RV carports typically cost much less than carports made of wood. Steel carports, because of the available customization options also offer a far less expensive option for room additions which can add square footage for either work or play.

Steel RV carports offer a wide variety of solutions and benefits which cannot be provided by structures made from wood or aluminum. In terms of customization options, flexibility, strength, and affordability steel RV carports stand above other structural materials while delivering long lasting and low maintenance use.
