VersaTube competitors only offer DIY carport kits in some instances. When our competitors do provide you a DIY carport kit, they usually just deduct 5% from the installed price. Worst of all, most of our competitors do not offer assembly instructions. Most will not provide customer support should their customers need it during assembly.

VersaTube uses a proprietary method when mandrel-bending side posts. VersaTube mandrel bends maintain the integrity and strength of the steel carport framing. Some models offered utilize single point compression bending.
VersaTube utilizes shaped tubing for 2 reasons. One, carports built with square or rectangular tubing are significantly stronger that those using round tubing. The flat surface on shaped tubing provides for easier assembly when applying screws and sheet metal panels.
VersaTube car ports are conveniently packaged and shipped on 40″ x 120″ pallets. Even the largest steel canopies can be delivered by any major shipping company using a standard pallet jack and lift gate.
Carports can be built on a number of flat surfaces following the anchoring procedures provided in the installation manual. The way to prepare the ground is to ensure there is a slight decline up to 4″ to ensure that water will run off and run off the back gable end, not the front.
16. Can VersaTube carports be built and then completely enclosed with additional materials at a later date?
The VersaTube Building System is designed for this exact purpose. Additional sections can be added and your carport can even be enclosed at a later date without issue.
Most RV covers we sell are 14′ x 38′ x 12′ and easily fit a motor home with an air conditioner underneath.

Authorized VersaTube dealers can install our carports as boat slips covers at their discretion.
The carport industry generally refers to an 18-foot carport as a doublewide. VersaTube offers doublewide units in both an 18′ and 20′ wide configuration. Additionally, our Suburban Series carport line is a full foot wider than the industry standard singlewide (12′ wide) and doublewide (18′ wide) carports. For two large vehicles, we recommend a 20′ x 20′ carport. For two small vehicles, an 18′ x 20′ carport may do the job.
You will find a link to our carport assembly manual in the top section of this page.
Generally our standard steel carport does not require truss braces in widths narrower then 20′ wide unless you have higher snow and wind load requirements. Most steel carports 20′ wide and wider require truss braces to meet local wind and snow load requirements.
VersaTube offer carports in a 3:12 roof pitch.
Snow and wind load conditions dictate the required on center spacing of a carport: VersaTube 10′ to 20′ wide carports are 4.5′ or 5′ on center. VersaTube 24′ to 30′ wide carports are 4′ or 4.5′ on center VersaTube Contractors Series 2″ x 4″ framing allows for carports wider than 30′.
Yes, as long as it is properly designed to carry the additional weight of the carport as well as the snow and wind load.
Yes. Our carports and RV covers come in many different styles. The Grand Series carport and the Suburban Series carport have the A-Frame style look.
Standard metal carports range from 8′ wide to 30′ wide and take 3 – 8 hours to assemble. Adding sidewalls, a front or back to your carport adds to the assembly time.
Here is the formula to calculate peak height (((Width / 2) x 3) / 12) + sidewall height
It is important to leave enough room to work around the perimeter of the metal carport for assembly purposes. We also recommend checking your local building codes.
VersaTube carports use common 7″ concrete anchor bolts that are installed using a hammer drill.
Our carports can be purchase with cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, money order, debit card, personal check, and business check or by PO (purchase order) to pre-qualified customers.
