If you screw it to a wood base, it works better. The covering is not designed to last a long time, especially in full sun in the desert. They do make replacements that are better and heavier, but cost a lot more. One solution is to buy a tarp (12.5 oz or heavier) and cover it so it lasts a lot longer.
Placed the order 4 times and three out of 4 were received damaged from the warehouse and received the second one back on the third reorder!!! still waiting on the 4th reorder!!! Very very poor customer service in 43 years!!!
We bought this to store our mowers and bigger yard care items. It's a good size, pretty sturdy and held up to the recent winds and final snowfall this spring. It definitely does not go together in an hour and a half like the manual states. It took two people more like 5-6 hours, but it does what we bought it for and we are very happy with it. Sears had the best price and shipped straight to the house. We definitely recommend it.
This shelter has been great to store my harley in very sturdy and has taken the wind well.
