canopy storage??

I've been told we shouldn't put a cover on AS as they will mar the finish. Anyone with any experience using a portable canopy (shelter logic, king canopy, etc) for storage. We can't put up the traditional metal roof type storage shed and were wondering if anyone uses a canopy (cloth roof) type storage. If so, are they waterproof? How do they do in the wind? How long do they last? etc etc etc

We used a white tarp type canopy 'garage' with a steel frame for outdoor storage. It was not tall enough for an AS.

The frame needs to be securely fastened down and the sides and top tied down well. Wind lifted ours and bent it a lot. It was salvageable but just barely.

In Southern California sun the fabric essentially fell apart in three years. If served the purpose but I won't waste the money on one again
