Any pics of Airstream carport or shed you have built?

I want to build a structure to park my airstream under. It does not have to be completely closed. I just want to keep the rain and sun off the top of the trailer. I would love to have one for my home and one for my property. I would like to look at pics of some of the designs and buildings you have done. I am looking to use recycled material or do a hoop type of structure that is sturdy. Post some pics so I can see all your artistic functional designs.

Someone here posted their setup at one of the Airstream parks out East. I'll have to see if I can find it. It was a heavy timber affair.

Sorry, but I wasn't able to find it. The member belongs to one of those Airstream only parks. I remember reading the history of the place, started in 1972, if I recall. The structures were pretty neat looking.

We had an open-sided pole barn for our Argosy, it did exactly what you are talking about. I'll see if I can dredge up a photo.

Now I like those structures. The hoop version I have thought of because I have been involved with horticulture my whole life. I might be able to pick up an old hoop house cheap. The wood version is great. I need to keep my out for some lumber that can be recycled

You people keep the pics coming in.

Brian,

Ours is just a common carport, but sized to fit. They're pretty reasonable and can be customized to suit your needs. Delivery and Installation (setup) is included in the price. Ours is 18X24 ft with 9 ft legs and the heavy gauge option. It stood up to Ike (which bent my stainless steel schedule 40 flag pole.) I have the soft side for the southern exposure, but you can order the sheet metal side or sides if you want. Ordered through carports.com. They were good to work with.

Good luck,

Roy

Had this built last year. It's designed so that it can be extended. Note that both ends are open so I can drive through, turn around and park it so it's ready to go. There's overhead lights and a 30 amp plug.


This is the second attempt to add photos to this post to no avail!!!

NTAC solution

This is the way the North Texas Airstream Community has their shelters (called Villas because several have living quarters at the back of the "Airstream port").
Building material is steel sheathing which can shed hail and other nasty weather events.

We looked into all sorts of things from cheap (less than $200) to expensive (more than $2,000). Cheap things looked flimsy. Expensive things were expensive and some were ugly. Correction, all were ugly. There are covers of made of things like Technalon (recommended by 2air) that won't scratch an Airstream but they were well over $1,000.

Then we narrowed it down to a pole barn or nothing. Nothing has won out (for now). A pole barn is simply a structure without side or front and back walls. A pole barn would protect the top and with some panels a couple of feet down the side, offer more protection. A 2 in 12 shed roof could be done with rolled roofing. It's cheap. Maybe 6 treated 4x4's would hold it up for a 25' trailer. The biggest problem to me is putting in the footings. It's not too hard to build a pole barn and you can just put down gravel for the "floor".
