ShelterLogic Sport Shed-in-a-Box Snowmobile/Motorcycle Shed - 10ft.L x 6ft.W x 6 1/2ft.H, Model# 70403
Great for storage!!
My 16'X16' work shop /shed was getting crowded with equipment and I had little space to work. This Shelter Logic "tent in a box" fit the bill for my needs. I have 2 snow blowers pressure washer, broadcast spreader and quite a few other items in it which in turn gave me lots of work space in my shop. The tent went up fairly easily. My only real issue with the installation was the attachment of the main cover to the frame with the ends in place. The instructions were not specific enough as far as showing the routing of the 4 tie down straps. I ended up making 4 tiny cuts in the end covers to run the rachet sraps through which keeps the rachets out of the weather. Also I erected mine on a pressure treated platform and had to purchase hardware to secure it to the platform. All in all seems like a good product and should last for many years.

Shed in a box
I like the concept of a portable shelter, though this one did take a couple of hours to put together. It generally was pretty good, but it took a couple of modifications to make it better. For example, when tightening the strapping for the end panels, everything is glued together. When the straps got tight, the glue gave way on one side. I would have preferred to see stitching. Duct tape to the rescue. And one zipper when I opened it up completely came apart, which took another 15 minutes to fix, and duct tape again to limit zipper travel. After that it has been doing well, even in 40 MPH winds. It is what I needed to store my small tractor when my wife said get it out of the garage. One of these days I will put up a wooden shed, but this foots the bill for right now.

Only Pro's need apply
Boy did I have a time with this...no real instruction took 3 hours to finally get it together, then a piece was missing so I couldn't complete it. Finally got the factory to send the piece and got it finally together. Then the zipper broke, darn thing just slid right off the end...now being in the 'midwest' and getting our share of snow...well you guested it, right throught the back side where the .....ZIPPER is broken and can't close the flap...so other then that..try your luck, seems to be a nice set-up, probably just my luck the way things turned out.. but with more positive then mine experence is why I bought it..need it for storage and I guess I'll figure out the clouser problem in the Spring when it thraws out.....

I put this shed up last year primarily for wood storage, as we heat our house with a wood stove. The shed has held up to a brutal Long Island winter last year, sub zero temps, 60 mph wind gusts, 12 inch snow load on the roof, not to mention the strength of the material of the shed, it withstands logs actually leaning on the sidewalls and bowing out the sidewalls with no signs of tearing. Incredible shed for the money.

Shetlerlogic for Motorcycle
I own a big 1800cc cruiser and bought this shed for the winter season to keep my bike protected. Coming from the New England area, we've been battered by blizzard storms all winter and the shed has held up great! even in multiple feet of snow, sleet and pouring hail / rain.
Only thing is, it's great to either have good hands on experience or a buddy to help put this shed up together, assembly was a bit of a pain for me. You will also need to build your own base for the shed as well, if you dont already have level solid ground to build the shed on.

Motorcycle Shed in a box
The directions were clear and easy to follow. It took longer than they said to put it together. It's an awesome little shed! I really like being able to drive in and out. It seems incredibly sturdy too. I consider it a very good buy.

A great tractor shelter
Well made and substantial, this easy to assemble shelter is just perfect for my tractor (John Deere 318) and other garden tools. With two easy to open zippered doors at either end access is a snap.
One minor negative is that the shipping container is very heavy and rather expensive to ship. I also found the tie down anchors supplied were difficult to work with so I replaced them with inexpensive tent stakes which have worked just fine.
