My Canopy

I didnít have the option of concreting my cover in , so I strapped off to the house and two anchors on the other side. So far two months and some very strong storms later, itís doing well.I extended the legs with 14Ē of fence post and padded the legs with pipe insulation just in case it contacted the Airstream. Come hurricane season it will have to come down, but such is life in the south.

I think the pipe insulation is a good idea. I had a heck of a time trying to back it in there, and finally handed it over to my husband to do the backing while I did the directing. I can see how a little accidental contact might come about! Plus if it suddenly falls over it would be padded (but that's just not going to happen)!

If I'd had enough room I would have put it somewhere where we could just drive through and not have to fight with backing it up into such a tight spot.

Well here is another idea from 'the peanut gallery.'

Get 6 friends over to help you move the canopy out of the way, park the trailer, then walk the canopy back over the trailer!

Walking the canopy

Actually Talmage thats how we got the canopy over ours, four people and had the legs screwed in at the top of the canopy. Tryed to make it a drive thru because I didnt have the brakes hooked up LOL.

Hi Flyfishr, here's a pic of the foot setup. The concrete blocks are deck piers with a metal saddle which fits the 4X4 post and they are screwed together. The leg is screwed to the post. There's one block under each foot. Like I said, it finally moved a little in the wind, and it was pretty good wind for us, but the big concern was the top of the conopy moving, and there was potential for it to touch the trailer, so we finally staked it down. But this certainly lifts it up enough to easily fit the trailer under. Notice our trailer doesn't have AC, so if yours does you might have to lift it a little higher.
