One of the purchases that every RV owner should consider is a motorhome garage tent. Needless to say, buying a vehicle for camping is usually a significant investment. It must be appropriately stored to keep this miniature house on the wheels in the right conditions for many upcoming years. It will then retain its properties for many years and remain reliable during travel.
Motorhome – protection in season and out of season
Every expedition enthusiast looks forward to their vacation. But beforehand, it is imperative to have your vehicle checked with a periodic inspection carried out by a mechanic. When traveling with family and friends, keeping them and yourself safe at the same time remains to be paramount. The number of potential faults can be reduced by adequately preparing the vehicle for winter.
Store a motorhome under a tent
Vehicle dimensions vary drastically. Most domestic garages do not meet the size requirements of these mobile homes. In addition, there are many differences regarding the height, width, and their equipment. Therefore, when you opt for a garage tent, make sure that the construction is suitable for the dimensions and meets all the required requirements. It’s up to you to decide whether there even be room for a small workshop in addition to the car itself for goods to be stored under the tarp as well as for additional travel-related items.
Construction of a garage tent
Each structure manufactured by Krosagro is made up of steel tubes and profiles, assembled to form a ready-to-use frame. The elements are fixed with clamps and screws. The structure is set by tent pegs, which are attached to the canvas with eyelets in the tarp, then screwed into the ground. Each element was galvanized at the production stage. For the user, this means that the structure will not corrode. Routine tent maintenance will prevent the formation of corrosion spots. The portable garage will retain its properties for many years, effectively protecting the vehicle.
Portable garage with the modular design
Krosagro garage tents have been designed with a modular construction system. There is an inexpensive possibility for the owner to extend the installation at any time. The element kit for additional segments can be purchased and combined with the construction already in place. This allows for expansion if it turns out that there is not enough space available. It is a much cheaper solution than brick or sheet metal building.
Movable structures like a garage
The advantage of modular designs is that the constructions are straightforward to assemble. Although you can assemble them yourself, it is recommended to hire a second person. The process will be even more efficient. If necessary, the frame can be dismantled and then moved to another location.
Garage tents for motorhomes are fitted with a tarp covering the frame and the vehicle in anticipation of adverse weather conditions. Machines under the cover will not overheat due to the sun. In addition, this parking lot will also protect the paint from fading. The structure will be continuously affected by the wind with more or less intensity. Therefore, when choosing a tarp, it is advisable to use solid materials designed for year-round storage. The best fabrics will be resistant to fire and UV rays, which considerably increases their safety in use.
If specified, the cover would be also ventilated to keep the excess of moisture away.
