I'm thinking of putting up a new carport for new trailer. I'm getting a lil snoozy trailer, should get it within the next 2 weeks. if the trailer if 7 feet 5 inches tall, and I get a metal carport, how long should the metal legs be??

anyone recommend a company that they've used? which carport company??

I'm tired of leaving my trailers outside, get dirty really quickly. had a carport at my last house, and think it's probably the best way to go to protect the trailer.

Ruth, kinda depends on the size. Below is a bit of a picture of mine. It's 18'x25' and 9' at the edges where it starts to curve. The legs can be added on too, if I sell and the new owner needs the carport to be taller. I wanted it tall enough to be able to use an extension ladder to wash/wax the top and for all over ventilation.

Here is a link to the kind I bought.

Carolina Carports, Inc.

I will not attempt to tell you the height to get as I got mine to high, but it works fine.
