"I've bought 3 or 4 of these shelter's. They are a great investment for the homeowner. I have 2 standing right now, and have a antique car in one and lawn mowers and lawn tractors in the other.The best thing I like about is the convenience of the roll up front door.The worst thing is they have a tendency to pull apart,but once you get all set up I spot welded the joints. I think I will have to buy another in the spring,running out of room."

Great Product for the Price

"Pros: Great product for the price - was purchased for general yard item storage [canoe/kayaks/lawnmowers]. We put this up on a very windy afternoon [didn't help] - but we had 4 good workers and it went fairly quickly. Construction is sturdy and tarp/canopy seems weather worthy; Good space for storage once up; sides are extra long so they drape/overlap at bottom approximately 6 inches each side - this is *not* true for the front and back - which just touch the ground if you adjust the ratchet straps; Color is a deeper grey than sales image suggests - for us, this was a positive. Overall, very satisfied.
Cons/Comments: Get some friends to help set up - can't imagine doing this with (1-2) people - (3-4) is best; tarp *will* tear if you over-tighten - so be careful; design is quirky for it asks you to square and level after assembling entire frame - and then you have to *disassemble* frame at both top and bottom rails to get tarp/canopy to attach; tapering sides prevents putting tall things at sides; rolling up front door flap is a little awkward if doing yourself; must be available to help driver unload as it ships freight - not common carriers like Fed-Ex Ground or UPS.
Separate the pieces AND the screws ahead of starting - there are 1 5/8" screws and 1 7/8" screws - which are close in size and easy to mix up!
Overall and for the price: Very good buy!

Great

"It is really amazing how well these things hold up, I have had one for about 3 years now and it is still in great shape. I built a good strong wood frame and filled it with gravel, then anchored the shed to the 8"x8" frame and it worked good. We live at 7500' and the wind and snow has not tore it down yet!"
