New driveway for my Airstream

Hi guys
Eventually I'm going to replace my asphalt driveway.
I need your thoughts on replacing with concrete or locking pavers.
Which will hold up better considering the weight of our trailer?
Thanks for your input.

Concrete without question, with fibers and more than enough rebar. If you want, get decorated concrete, but shy away from pavers and asphalt. The pavers eventually sink, the asphalt in the heat with weight also deform a bit.

One trick to concrete is to keep it curing as long as possible by keeping it wet, say for a week. Cures slow, you could park a semi on it and no cracks, etc...

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Concrete of a proper batch design and poured and finished by a competent contractor, under proper conditions is without doubt the way to go. It costs a bit more to go first class but if you're there for the long haul, you'll be happy you spent the moola and did it right the first time. Best of luck to you in your efforts.
