    Well, after some research I ended up going with a Rhino Shelter round shaped garage 14'W x 24'L x 10'H. They had them on sale at the Eastern States Exposition fair. I got a great deal! I talked to a few guys that have them in Maine and they said they lasted upwards of 10 years.

    I priced out a similar metal unit at carport.com and it was over $3,000 w/me doing the install. Too pricy for me. That was not even including the double garage doors that I got on this one and the perminate anchors!

    The shelter is made using rugged and long-lasting industrial grade 10oz. fabric and is available in two distinct colours. The entire cover, including doors, are constructed with a CPAI-84 rated Poly with woven backing, which is UV resistant and fire retardant. The outer and inner layers sandwich a special layer in between called Inner Black Scrim. This layer has a coating that prevents any sunlight from infiltrating the material. All the components for the frame are manufactured using galvanized steel.

    Ratchet straps come standard with Rhino Shelters. The shelter cover never loosens or sags, thanks to the strong webbing material used in the ratchet strap. The tight fit allows the ratchet straps to withstand much higher snow loads than ordinary rope. Every door contains a pouch to accommodate a pole and grommets. Cable earth anchors and 36" drive rod come with the package.

    At $1,320 shipped, that's pretty steep. (I'm sure you got a better deal though.) But awesome to know more options. For that much cash, I'll keep leaning towards a metal one...

    Last year I went to Ocean State Job Lot and bought a slightly oversized non custom cover. I then built a frame of 2x4 lumber that created a very steep pitch with the cover and just snow raked the snow off the cover the couple of times we got really big snow. The verticals on the support frame are about 4' tall. This worked out perfect for me, better than the dealer I used to store my Outback. The last year they had it they chipped the swim platform and when I picked it up there was a wicket ant nest in it. Tilex kills ants instantly by the way.
