I vote for leaving the snow on...acts as an insulator...think igloo

Sergei, maybe you can auction it off come spring. I have built temporary shelters like that in the past, one of the last ones I built is still standing and the current owner added a shingle roof to it, it was built over 15 years ago

Sell it. Thatís another good idea.

Iíll bet that if I put a for sale sign on it come spring, and perhaps run an ad in the local small town paper, somebody will take it off my hands.

I might get back the cost of materials and wonít have to pay labour to help take it down.

It's better to take the snow off. Load factor plus the fact that the sun helps warm the interior. It won't if a heavy layer of snow blocks it.

It's easy to remove the snow. I use a push broom to wiggle the inside membrane and the snow cover cascades down.

Global Warming Warning

Our big snowfall has quickly melted away. It looks like we won't have a White Christmas along the North Shore of Lake Erie this year.

Sergei,

Hey, that's a nice Mini tow vehicle. I bet the hitch is so close to the rear axle you don't need to worry about sway.

Minnesota Mark:

There is an after market hitch available for the MINI, rated if I remember correctly for 1300 pounds.

I toyed with the idea of pulling a teardrop but then stumbled upon my trailer.

This is my second winter stuck in the snow with the Argosy instead of touring New Mexico.

My new TV is the black Sprinter hidden behind the tent. It will haul the Mini and pull the Argosy and go south next by next winter, I hope.
