Now is the time to install your RV, camper or toy hauler parking pad. Soon we will be getting rain and snow that will make the project more difficult and time consuming. Each city and county has different rules and regulations for new parking pads and driveways, depending if they are visible from the street and are in the property yard. You should check with them before beginning your project.

While each type of roadbase has many uses, specific types of roadbases work better in different situations. Class 6 Granite roadbase is the best overall material to build your parking pad with. It works better on freshly graded dirt. Poorly drained areas where standing water may be an issue, on sandy or clay soils, because of the amount of aggregate and binders in it.

Class 6 Recycled Concrete Roadbase works well installed over freshly graded dirt, as a top layer over existing base of material and in some situations over clay soil. It doesn't work quite as well in sandy, mucky clay or poorly drained areas.

Recycled Asphalt roadbases does not usually meet the specification recipe for Class 6 Roadbase due to the varying amount of aggregate in some of the asphalt that was crushed. The tradeoff is that freshly crushed and screened asphalt compacts well over newly graded dirt thats been compacted and will stay compacted, depending on the traffic and how the snow is plowed. It works over clay soils at a 4 inch or thicker depth. It will disappear in sandy soils.

What is Class 6 roadbase? Class 6 is a (specification or Spec or recipe) for 3/4 inch minus roadbase. That means that the size of the largest aggregate in the material is 3/4 inch rock, then 1/2 inch rock, then 3/8 inch rock and then the fines. In Granite road base it consists of granite fines, in Recycled Asphalt it contains asphalt fines, and in Recycled Concrete it contains concrete fines. Granite roadbase meets this, Recycled Concrete roadbase sometimes meets it, Recycled Asphalt roadbase seldom meets it.

What are the different types of Road Base available? The Roadbases we sell the most of are:
Granite Class 6 Roadbase
Recycled Concrete Roadbase
Recycled Asphalt Roadbase

Due to the pandemic there is often a shortage of Recycled Asphalt and Recycled Concrete. We have mountains of Granite Roadbase, no pun intended.

Class 6 Recycled Concrete Roadbase. - Compacted Roadbase of any type will stand up to the water from washing your vehicle but you will need to either crown the center of the pad so the water will drain to either side instead of pooling on top of it, or it may be easier to slope the pad slightly (just a couple inches) to the downhill side and create drainage that way.

Class 6 Recycled Concrete Roadbase. - Parking pad watered down and compacted with drainage (slope) towards the street. This is a hard, durable surface tht will stay in place.

Recycled Asphalt. - Recycled asphalt is an engineered product that when spread out and compressed will form a hard surface. It can be combined with Contractor's rock to create a very hard and durable surface that is long lasting.

Materials Not to Use for an RV, Toy Hauler or Boat Parking Pad

All of the materials above on this page will work well, either by themselves or in combination.

Here are a few materials you probably don't want to use:

  • Dirt - Fill dirt, screened fill dirt, sandy loam fill dirt, etc. in any way shape or form. When it rains or snows and it will eventually, you'll end up with a mud parking pad.
  • Class 1 Structural Fill Dirt - It is a great material for many uses and projects, but not as a top layer for a parking pad. It will work installed under some type of rock as a parking area, but not to wash the vehicle on.
  • Sand - Not good no matter what.
  • Pea Gravel - Will never compact, it drains well and it will always be like walking around on small marbles. There are other materials that work better and many cost about the same or less.
  • Squeegee - Same reasons as the Pea Gravel.
  • Granite and River Rock Crusher Fines can be used, but while they compact, they will loosen up over time. Class 6 Granite Roadbase will work far better for less money.

When in doubt about the best material for your project, please feel free to call us at 720-298-09848 or submit a Bid through the Request a Bid button on the top of this page.

 You need 96 tons for an average depth of 2 inches, You will need 144 tons for a 3 inch average depth. Calculations are shown below.

Tonnage Example - Use calculator below to determine amount needed
Product Length Width L x W =SF SF / Depth Tons
Arena Sand / Squeegee 120 Feet 80 Feet 9600 100 96

To Order the Correct Amount of Material

Measure the length and width of the area to be covered. If you don't have a tape measure, walk the length and width of the area. Figure each full step as 2 1/2 feet. Get the total square footage of the area by multiplying the length by the width.

Example: 120 feet long by 60 feet wide = 7200 square feet
1 ton of Washed Sand covers 100 square feet 2 inches deep.
For every 2 inches of depth you will need 72 tons of Sand

Please note: This is only a rough indication of the amount of material you may need. Actual dimensions may vary due to irregularities in soil types and established rough grade.
