My friends put this up, so no personal opinion, although they said it when up ok. Instructions were easy to follow. The stakes are not necessary where I live- no wind, but in windy areas, they would be handy.
Two features that need improvement: 1. the two stretchy catches used to hold the rolled up front opening. They are too short- they could be longer to make fastening easier. 2. I bought a dowel from a hardware store to fit into the bottom sleeve of the front opening to aid in rolling it up to fasten.
It's heavy and sturdy and seems, so far (2mos.) it will last a good while.
Also, one part was missing and had to be sent, which came timely. Other than those 3 things, I'm happy.

Smaller than anticipated, you can not open your vehicle doors to get in or out when inside the garage, even in a compact vehicle. The material seems sturdy and my husband was able to assemble it over a weekend though.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BB After about 3 weeks, my carport was destroyed in the wind
I got the car port in mid July, 2016 and paid a little over $300 for it. It lasted until the first wind storm and the cover blew off as well as parts being lost. Home Depot didn't offer much help and I will now have to pay someone to dismantle the frame. It has been a big disappointment to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keith Nice shelter. Good assembly!
This shelter was VERY easy to assemble. I only needed a little help from my 11 year old daughter to hold a few things in place while I assembled them. (And she got to learn how to use a ratchet!) I recommend getting the longer anchors - they seemed to bite and dig in better than those shipped with the shelter. Overall, it probably took me only a couple of hours to get it assembled. The hardest part was getting the anchors torqued into the ground! (There ought to be a power tool for that!) It's been up a month with no problems.

This product can be put together nicely without any real hassel. It looks good and is holding up well for what I need it for. Just keep the snow off the top! I rated it good because I'm sure there is a more high end product that is excellent, but for the price you can't beat this!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cltinseattle Very Good Product for the Price
We bought this to store our motorcycles for the upcoming winter. We previously had a Shelter Logic storage shed that held up well for several years until the Hanukkah Eve storm in 2006 blew it apart. You cannot expect that this will survive hurricane force winds. In comparison, I believe the tarp covering on the previous shelter was of higher quality but the frame work on the new one is higher quality than the older one. Two people put this together with help from a third person on occasion, the assembly was not difficult but be advised that there were some holes that were not lined up correctly and we had to drill holes to get some parts to fit correctly. This one came with better anchors than the previous one. The previous one basically just came with long tent stakes and this one came with solid ground anchors. I wouldn't consider this to be a permanent shelter but I hope it holds up for a few years of Seattle weather. It seems like it should do pretty well against the rain and occasional snow, we'll see how it hold up against wind.
I am also posting a photo, you can ignore the extension cord in the photo, that was for the use of the drill and we also ran a metal detector all over the ground picking up a ton of nails left on the ground by the previous owner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Willer Great Buy
This is the second one we purchased. We had a freak storm with cannon ball size hail. Yes, it happened. We found out later,that there was a tornado on our block that caused the hail to be thrown with great velocity. We were in the process of building a garage. For temporary shelter of our new car, we purchased this auto shelter. After the storm stalled for about 20 minutes, there was a lot of damage to homes, all our neighbors vehicles were totalled, everyone's truck and cars windows shattered, rear view mirrors literally beaten off the trucks and cars. When the storm started I looked out and saw the hail bounce of the auto shelter but was so severe the hail started penetrating. I expected the worse. When we when to check we saw 20 slits in the shelter. We walked all around the vehicle. This shelter saved our new car.
Rather than patching the slits, we just bought a new one for our side by side. We live in snow country, it survived all the weather conditions including other hail storms. Would highly recommend.
