Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyCustomer Roof didn't even last 1 year
I am horribly unsatisfied with this product. The Shelterlogic enclosure/cover ripped where it covered the poles in about 8 months. We ordered a new cover, then the same exact thing happened again. Once it rips on the sides the entire roof gives way with any kind of wind. We had damaged products that were in storage due to rain because the roof gave out. I would NOT recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean1 Truck tent
I am surrounded by trees and truck would not fit in garage. Shelter Logic keeps the weather and tree debris off of my full size pick up. I followed other reviews and seperated the parts ahead of time which made assembly easy. I did it by myself between soccer games without issue in probably combined time of 4 hours including the separation of parts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SethB Pretty much exactly what I knew I was getting
I didnt rush anything and had this up within a few days of un-labored work. I have not had this through the winter so I am leaving one star un-checked. The sheen on the shell seems like it will shed snow easily in the winter. I used this portable garage for my Datsun 240Z project so crossing my fingers it holds up.
The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I had my wife read them after we sorted the poles into piles and then layed them out as it is explained to do in the instructions. From there it was very easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handypersons Can be assembled in about an hour?????????????????
Now that is just plain funny! My wife and I started with opening the box for the first time this morning about 7:30 am and we just put the truck to bed inside about 3:30 pm with a half hour break for lunch using basic hand tools. (An electric socket driver could save some time here.) Not difficult to assemble, just lots of joints needing nuts and bolts. All the nuts and bolts are thrown together in one big bag so take your time getting them all separated and the same with all the poles, though they are clearly marked. We had to back track some so pay really close attention to some sneaky steps where it says "don't tighten yet" and where order of assembly could be better. With all the shorter length poles it would be handy for taking down and moving if you have to. The cover does stretch out nice and tight. It is awfully light so if you have any wind at all you are going to want to purchase extra anchors. Overall for the money it it does look darn good and if it weathers half way well it is an excellent value for your dollar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Needmygarageback Good for the price.
Product was delivered fast and set up was fairly easy did most of it myself with a little help needed for some parts. Instructions werent bad although the order of some of the assembly steps could be improved. Good product for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Satherton Summer use only and not for high winds
We just set this up and it took my husband about 8 hours with my help. When we started with the tarp we noticed that the back door had a hole already patched!! So basically they jus have torn a hole in the tarp while making it and just patched it.
After a week of this being up we are questioning if we should leave it up during the winter but since we paid about 330 and took us all day we decided not to put anything of value in it and when it flies away (because it looks like it's going to) we will let it go and NEVER buy it again.
Waste of money unless you just need it for a dew months during the summer or if you don't mind worrying every time a strong wind comes up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SoCalAL Works perfectly as a "Hayport:...
Purchased for our friend for storing her "horse food". Wind and rain are problems at the horse farm.
I'm only giving this shelter four-stars because of the "Assembly Instructions Issue".
Box came with 2012 instructions. Part numbers matched, but only eight pages of drawings, no real text.
Online download was 2009 instructions - part numbers different, but at least has descriptions and sizes of the parts (6-inch bolt, five-inch bolt, etc).
Called customer support and woman emailed me the 2014 version of instructions, while we were talking!
2014 instructions are also just drawings, but now has 24-pages, with much more details!
Web site claims a two-hour assembly time. Yeah right. This claim is true IF you are an employee of ShelterLogic OR have done this a million times before (well, maybe not a million, but at least some prior experience).
Took us longer because of site limitations, not because of assembly difficulty.
Suggested pre-assembly sequence:
The "Rafters" - upper corners, rafter tubes, peak joint.
The "Leg Sets" - the actual uprights. Middle three leg sets use a foot plate. Ends use a bent corner.
The "Top Rails" - the horizontal connectors for the peaks of each "Rib".
The "Ribs" - attaching respective uprights to each rafter.
The "Cross Rails" - the horizontal members connecting the upper corners of each rafter.
The "Top Rails" - the TOP horizontal members connecting the completed "Ribs"
The "Bottom Rails" - the BOTTOM horizontal members connecting the uprights with the cover after everything else is done.
You will need to temporarily attach the bottom rails to make sure of the spacing between the ribs at the bottom! If you anchor the feet without them, nothing will be square!
Important!!! Make sure outside distance at the ends is TEN feet. If not, the end panels will not fit.
Attach TOP RAILS.
Anchor all feet.
Attach End Panels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cbhsfilled Pleased with Carport and easabilty in setup alone
I have friends of mine that have purchased the exact same model and it worked great for years. I just purchased mine and set it up all by myself. I had to adjust the installation process a bit to accomplish the task, but it worked out great.
I have read some of the reviews, and one friend had an issue, but found out they did not anchor it down and when a strong wind came along, the carport flipped. You have to follow the directions if you want results.
The only adjustment I would make is clearer markings on all piping as quite a few were faded (I just compared to others) and that screws were in separate labeled bags.
All-in-all I am pleased
