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.

We had a rather small modification made to our sunroom, which was originally built by Spanline over 10yrs ago. The job turned out just as we had hoped. Salesman Frank and supervisor Trevor were quick to provide replies to our queries and updates throughout. We consider that very important, so that we know we haven't been forgotten after signing on the dotted line. All members of the team we spoke with were easy to talk to, accepted our questions and input and made us feel part of the process. Cannot recommend them highly enough.Tony Zahra

Amazing job by Spanline!! Constant consultation during the build of our deck roof, and with the organising of electrical work to light switches and installation of ceiling fan. We now enjoy entertaining on the covered deck enjoying the sunset and the view to the escarpment
After some research we contacted Spanline about an addition for our house. Scott Basman came out and talked to us about what we wanted from the space. He worked with us on the design, he is very knowledgeable and made sure it was everything we wanted. Lachlan, Adrian and Jake were also amazing throughout the build process, now we have a massive indoor/outdoor space which is perfect for our needs.

Had a great experience with choosing Spanline Illawarra for my carport. Nick was the one who did the quote up for me and was reasonable and knew what I wanted and explained everything clearly. Carport was done within reasonable time within 3 weeks from when I got the quote. The builder Scott has done a very good job building the carport. It only took about 3 days to complete the carport. Many thanks to Shahil who is the supervisor of the job, who did the designing as well. He explained everything clearly and when he came to measure he made sure I understood what I wanted. I absolutely love how it has turned out.Thank you to the team at Spanline. You’ve done a great job.
