How thick should the concrete be?
I'm going to build a new race shop at the end of the existing concrete drive. The apron between the shop and the existing drive will probably be 10 to 12 feet. Between the shop and the lot line (25 feet) I'm going to pour a pad to park the enclosed trailer (now 24') and the tow vehicle.
The existing two vehicle is a half ton Suburban. The plan is to replace it with a 379 Peterbilt with a 28 to 30 foot box, bumper pull, and tandem or single axles. All depends on what the down on his luck seller has to sell. Or maybe a Prevost (especially if I can steal one!)
How thick should I pour the pad and approach from the existing drive? 4"? 5"? or 6"? I don't want to necessarily over build, I'm a little on the cheap side, but I will pay to do things right and not cut the wrong corners.
What have you guys done? What works? And what hasn't worked too well.
Started looking for 379 Peterbilt TC, 24' to 30' box, bumper pull--but ended up w/1999 Liberty Coach conversion of 45' Prevost XLV bus. 1,000sf heated/AC'd race shop w/dump station, 50amp shore pwr where bus parks, 3 NASCAR/ARCA race cars & 26' Bravo trailer.
