If you want to protect a taller vehicle from the elements, the Palram Arcadia Alpine 8500 Carport is an ideal way to achieve this, without the need for a garage. The aluminium legs can be adjusted to a maximum height of 11 feet 7 inches (3.52m), so the carport can easily accommodate vehicles such as motorhomes, vans, 4x4s or caravans.

The Arcadia Alpine 8500 is one of the middle sizes in this range. It measures 12 x 28, so is able to accommodate two small vehicles. This carport has multiple uses and with the extra room, it can also be used as a covered sitting area, providing a space in the shade for you to relax or entertain guests.


Featuring a modern, anthracite grey finish, the Palram Arcadia Alpine 8500 will add a sophisticated touch to your outside space. It is made from heavy-duty aluminium, with laser-cut galvanised steel connectors, making it a remarkably robust structure. This state-of-the-art design provides outstanding weather protection: The Arcadia Alpine 8500 is snow-load tested to 150kg per square metre and wind-resistant to 120 kilometres per hour.

It features bronze-tinted 6mm twin-wall polycarbonate roof panels, that are high-impact, shatter-resistant and built to withstand inclement weather. The panels are also UV protected, which means they will not discolour, fracture, or become brittle over time.

The Arcadia Alpine 8500 requires a solid, level surface onto which to anchor it securely using the supplied footpads. It comes with eight sturdy, aluminium legs that are built to support the weight of the structure and provide plenty of strength and stability, even in harsh weather.

Underpinning its eco-credentials, the carport is made with 100% recyclable materials and has integrated gutter and gutter heads that allow you to easily channel and collect rainwater for a sustainable irrigation system.

Usefully, the structure can easily be disassembled and reassembled in a new location if you need to move it in the future.


Palram produces a range of accessories to ensure you get the most out of your Palram Arcadia, whether you are using it as a covered seating area or as a carport. In the ‘choose additional options section’ you will find accessories designed for use with the Arcadia Alpine 8500 Carport, including a low-heat lighting system and carbon fibre infrared heater.


For added reassurance, this model comes with a Palram 10-year limited warranty at no extra cost. The warrant is conditional on the carport being assembled and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
