ShelterLogic Garage-in-a-Box for SUV/Truck - 20ft.L x 13ft.W x 12ft.H, Model# 62693
The product was easy to setup and I was able to do it by myself. If you have someone to help you it will make it easier. The instructions were easy to follow and I had the garage put up in an afternoon. The workmanship of the garage is very good. I have now had the garage go through some sever thunderstorms and nothing has happened to it.

THE PRODUCT IS WELL THOUGHT OUT. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER REVIEWS. PUTTING TOGETHER WOULD NOT BE TOO DIFFICULT, IF THE PREDRILLED HOLES LINED UP. THERE ARE ABOUT 5 CROSS MEMBERS THAT ARE MISS DRILLED. FOR A TEMPORARY SHELTER THAT IS INTENDED TO BE PUT UP AND TAKED DOWN, IT WILL BE DIFFICULT TO PUT IT TOGETHER UNLESS YOU REDRILL AND MARK THOSE PIECES FOR THAT PARTICULAR CROSS MEMBER. I HAVE NOT REDRILLED OR CALLED YET TO SEE WHAT SHELTER LOGIC WILL DO ABOUT THIS. I DO NOT WANT TO VOID THE WARRANTY BY REDRILLING. TAKEING PICTURES TO ACTIVATE THE WARRANTY IS A INCONVENIENT ALSO. WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED.

Great building for the money! Shipping was rather quick. Not that hard to put together. It can be done with 2 people in a day with a ladder and some simple hand tools. I must also add that it survived the 60-80 mph winds from hurricane sandy in new jersey.

Shelter Logic Garage in a Box
The product is big. At Northern they loaded it into the back of my SUV using a forklift.
Assembly wasn't too bad. Took the better part of a day but instructions and common sense made it OK. Had to go back to put the tarp part on as it was windy. Anchoring was the hard part. I was putting it on an asphalt surface and used concrete anchor bolts. It has held through some pretty good winds and made it through one mild winter but there was one real heavy, wet snowfall and it held like a champ. Other reviews are correct, you do need the vent kits. Hopefully it holds for another winter or two.

I have had other Shelter Logic products in the past most last me 4 years or so. This unit is huge once erected and looks like it will shed snow without a problem. I put it together in about 6 hours by myself. The instructions were great, parts packaged and inventoried well, be sure to have an 8 foot ladder around to hang the end panels. I am going to replace the solid end panel with another zippered door opening, other than that it suites my needs perfectly.

garage in a box
I bought it online the other day and got in less than a week.Customer service was great ! Driver pulled it from the truck and wheeled it into my backyard. Box had every item listed in it. The instructions will have you pulling your hair out after you begin to build it.You will wind up dismantling pieces after you have secured them.You will need a 8 to 10 foot ladder with a helper to pull heavy top over it's frame.Once together it's great and would recommend it.

Shelter logic SUV Garage in a box - Good value
I looked around a bit before buying this shelter. I liked the fact that it has a high roof line and a high door opening - plus the extra width made it possible to park my truck and trailer side-by-side inside it. It also comes standard with a door roll-up kit, too. It makes it easier to move in and out.
The other feature that helped in my decision is that it has the truss cross supports which gives the frame more stability and strength.
I put this thing up from start to finish in about 4 hours - AND I did it by myself !!!!!!! (Hint: I used duct tape to hold the cover and front and rear panels to the frame while I attached the ratchet system to them. Worked like a charm.)
The only thing that should be included is a vent kit because it gets hot inside.
I am hoping that it can withstand the winter - only time will tell.

A very good value!
Have been very pleased with this product so far, everything was complete in the box when received and was straightforward in getting it all put together and up. I was looking for a reasonably priced product that would be quick to put up and use and this package has done both very well. The building is sturdy and looks like it will hold up to our wind and snow by the way it is constructed and the only thing that remains to be seen is how long it will last! Overall, am very pleased with this item it is doing exactly what was promised.
