Living under Oak trees

hello...we have just purchased an airstream which will be delivered to our driveway next week...very excited we are...but considering we have giant, splendid oak trees we are wondering, should we be worried about parking our new home under these trees? Should we get a cover? Any advice/experience will be helpful...

I would, between the bird doo and the oak drippings, you might think about a nice framed canvas covered setup.

If it is California live oak, you might not have a problem with falling branches, but I would not put anything you value under a willow oak tree. Despite being in the hard wood red oak group, they tend to drop their branches often.
