eddd Posted March 7, 2013 Share Posted March 7, 2013 Back in Texas I designed my garage to fit my extended cab pickup with an 8' bed so even though it is 11 years old and just short of 200,000 miles, it is in very good condition. My current garage in very sunny Hurrican, Utah isn't big enough to fit the truck so it is parked on a nice concrete pad next to said garage. I've parked it between my toyhauler and the house to minimize the amount of time it is in direct sun light, but I'm tossing around the idea of adding a carport for the truck. Snow is not a big issue, nor is rain. The carport's primary job would be to keep the sun off the truck. So the question for those of you in sunny locales, do you think it is worth the $1500-$2000 just to keep the sun off the truck? Are there addtional benefits I'm missing? BTW, the truck sits basically unused for weeks at a time. I'm not concerned about it being cooler when I jump in since that happens so infrequently. Link to comment
