I live in the Buffalo , New York area and we recently had 7' of snow here. Many carports in our mobile home park collapsed due to poor construction and the weight of the snow. I want to put on a carport myself but am unsure how to do it. The connecting to the actual trailer is the part I am most unsure of. I would appreciate any help anyone out there can give me. I am very handy but this particular project baffles me. I want to make it sturdy enough to eventually enclose part of it for storage/room and also sturdy enough not to collapse. Thanks for any and all advice.
