    I tore down my sheds this summer with plans of having a new structure built. Well things got fucked up and now I won’t have my structure until the new year.

    So in the mean time, I need a temporary enclosure to store my atv and ride on mower.

    Not looking so spend thousands but I want something to withstand high wind and snow. Has anyone saw anything like this around? Are those canvas enclosures at Canadian Tire any good?

    Must be half decent if it survives Quebec winters

    There are other places, but it looks like a call for quote thing. I'm sure someone in your area carries them.

    i remember using these and repairing them constantly when i was into cars and living at home. i'm sure they have come along way since i used them 15 years ago. Neighbour just put one up that has an arched roof that looks pretty sturdy. it looks like the ones you get at canadian tire

    So far mine made it through one harsh NB winter, I got it at CT for $399 on sale from like $649 or something. It's holding up well, but they are probably a 3-5yr lifespan likely.

    Do you need access to the ATV or mower? Just wrap them in a tarp, tie it down?

    I will access the ATV frequently. I wanna keep it out of the ice and snow and wanna keep the plastics out of the sun 24/7. Same with the mower but I don’t care as much about that lol

    I guess I’ll give one of the Canadian tire units a go. After I get my real sheds built I’ll likely sell it anyway

    That crossed my mind but the only place I would want to put it, they would have to drive across my septic field. I don’t want that much weight over it
