Hi ALANSD; For the money those erector storage shelters are great, especially when they are oversize so that you can leave ends open for cross ventilation. Shielding your AS from direct sun and elements saves the clear coat as well as reduces condensation by maintaining close to uniform temps. Ask Santa for a bigger shelter next time. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

Boatdoc - Do you know how do those storage sheds hold up under a heavy snow load?

storage shed

Dmac- I've had a Costco "shed" up for 2 years now, had 14" of wet snow on it last year with no problems. They are 10'W x 20'L and were $165 at Costco. I boosted mine up on top of 24" high 2x4 "walls" anchored in concrete deck footing blocks to get it high enough for the AS ( 10' at the sides). I also spread the legs out at the bottom to 12' for plenty of room. You could put 2 of these end to end for a 40' long shed. The vinyl still looks pretty good, hope to get 2 or 3 more years of use out of it while I plan a proper pole structure.
Hope this helps.
Cheers, Jeff

Hi dmac; Here are your major requirements. Metal frame a must. Round roof. Do not buy enclosed ends, Vinyl enclosures hold moisture. Choose one that has approx 3' clearance on each side. Front to back should be at least 4' past the AS on each end. If possible, set it in a direction so that it will offer least exposure to the sun to your AS. Anchor it well. Best method is to buy some round concrete slugs. Drill a hole in one end and install expansion anchor with two links of chain. Dig three holes per side and bury the slugs, this will give you points to secure it. For as long as the ends of shelter are open and the wind can pass through six anchor points as such will be sufficient, unless you are in tornado area. Round top will carry a lot of weight of snow thanks to the design. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

This one may be tight on clearing the wide sides along the trailer top. I did a quick sketch on graph paper and it could be almost 9' wide eight feet above the ground.

I don't have any direct experience with this product. I just happened to notice it in my "Wooden Boat" magazine yesterday -- which sits in the basket right behind "Wooden Trailer".... oh, never mind.
