RV Driveway

Rather than concrete I installed a DG driveway to my workshop and RV parking. Works great and way cheaper than concrete.

RV Driveway

depends - is your m/h on a toyota mine-p/u chassis OR the big kind ? save your $ on the fiber BUT use ( at least ) #5 rebar under the wheels,,, the most important way to prevent random cracking is diamond-sawing the proper joint pattern,,, i'd have 6" conc w/8" under the wheels - parked ( static ) loads ' weigh ' more in that they'll damage base & cause cracks MORE than dynamic ( rolling ) loads
