If you own an RV or Caravan, a Caravan Carport is essential

Carports for caravans and RVs are a great way to protect your investment and extend the life of your caravan or motorhome. By keeping it protected from the elements, you can avoid costly repairs and extend the life of your caravan. In addition, a motorhome carport can also be a safe and secure location when you’re not on the road.

Safeguard your investment with a caravan shade cover

Caravans are a wise investment due to their slower rate of depreciation compared to cars. Caravans depreciate at 10 to 15% per year while cars can depreciate at around 25 to 27% per year. You can also expect a better trade-in price for your caravan when you upgrade.

A well-maintained caravan retains its value and provides many years of enjoyment. Caravans, RVs and even boats need good care to retain their value. Caravan carports are the best way to protect your investment.

While a portable caravan shelter may offer temporary coverage for your van, it may not withstand the test of time. Maintain your caravan well and it can last 10+ years, providing a valuable asset when it’s time to sell. Therefore a sturdy and durable shelter such as a caravan carport should be your first consideration. It’s important to take into consideration your caravan carport roof height when upgrading your van or making your first motorhome investment. It would be better to build it right in the first place.

Don’t let the weather claim your caravan

When you take up caravanning in Australia, you need to be aware of the weather.

Caravans are not always built to withstand the extreme heat and cold that our country experiences. It’s important to take steps to protect your caravan from harsh weather. There are a few things you can do to protect your caravan from the weather.

Firstly, invest in a good quality caravan cover. This will help keep your caravan cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Also, if you have roller doors on your caravan carport, make sure you have adequate ventilation in your caravan. This will help to prevent mould and mildew from forming in your caravan.

A caravan garage or carport is the most effective way to protect your “home away from home” from the extremes of Australian weather.

Spanline’s Double-U® Roofing Systems are designed and built in Australia for Australian conditions. Our roofing panels have undergone rigorous testing and certification to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions, including cyclones. Our steel materials have also been fully tested and meet national accreditation standards for fire resistance under AS1530. We are proud that both our Double-U® and Slendek® roofing systems have received national accreditation for their cyclonic weather and fire resistance capabilities.

From start to finish, their team was professional, efficient, and highly skilled. The quality of their workmanship exceeded my expectations, and the final result truly enhances the appearance and functionality of my client’s homes. I highly recommend Spanline to anyone in need of outdoor living or improved home utility. They deliver top-notch service and outstanding results.

Extremely happy with completed roof we had Spanline Port Stephens erect over our external deck area. Their professionalism and attention to detail throughout our product selection / build process was amazing and we have received a great deal of positive feedback from our family and friends about the quality of the product and workmanship. Many thanks to Steve and Simone.
We have used Spanline for two renovations recently and couldn't be happier with the process, from Seb Godfrey coming out to measure and quote, to material selection and the build process.Where possible they sought to re-use existing materials and structures, offering different materials and options to really try and meet our budget and still get an amazing result.The workmanship is amazing and especially in the instance of our back deck it just linked the house and our yard together in a way our previous mod-wood deck (which was only two years old and had collapsed) simply could not.I cannot recommend Spanline highly enough. The initial quote may seem expensive but I can't reiterate the work quality, the dedication of the staff and the end product is absolutely worth it and I wish I had done it in the first place. I'm looking forward to working with them again in future for other renovations I'm planning.

From the initial contact with Chris and Mel, all dealings with Spanline people were positive and friendly. The team organised all necessities from Council approval, through the engineer drawing up the plans via an onsite visit, to the delivery and construction of the carport.I initially thought the timeframe was excessive but they moved my construction forward when there was a cancellation. Rain slowed things down but the carport was erected within 3 workable days (allowing for the curing of the concrete).Neighbours have remarked positively on the look of the carport and that it has enhanced the front of the house.Once the carport was erected, a local plumber completed the work by connecting the carport roofing to the required overflow pipes.In summary, a great piece of work, organised by a very friendly and professional organisation.
