Understanding RV Carport Heights and their Components:

The legal road limit of an RV is 13 ft 6 in high and 8 ft 6 in wide

The building height we refer to is the vertical side leg height not the center of the building’s height which ranges in height but is always at least 2 ft taller than the side leg.

The center height of the building will  change depending on the length and width of the building.
