Raised carport

Reace told me the jack antenna raised the height to at least 10 feet. I measured when I got home and it is closer to 11.
My contractor raised the carport about 15 inches so there is plenty of room.
There are multiple 6 foot re bars anchoring it down.

Hi: captmath... Looks good enough that if you piped in water and 30 amp. power we'd come there to camp!!! Alf

I have got the 30 amp. You cannot see it from that angle. I am always wishing I had run a water line out there at the same time.

JEALOUS! My carport is 18'x25' and four inches too short for me to get Ten Forward home I can't find anyone willing to raise it for me. I think I've finally tracked down a fella about 100 miles away who's willing to look at it. Maybe by late fall, Ten Forward will be snug as a bug too.

Jeepers Donna, too bad I did not live closer. I would do it. I am pretty sure I saw a photo of it before, but is it a detached structure, or part of another building?

After having my 19 out in the elements all the time, I do want to cover the 5.0 TA, and I want it to be a structure, not a fabric cover. We are in the throws of house hunting as we "right size". One feature that is a must, is a place to park the trailer.
