You've made an investment in your auto, truck, or RV, and you know the value of protecting it from dirt and harsh weather. Of course, a traditional garage is the most effective protection there is. But if you are lacking a garage, or sufficient space in one, a canvas shelter is a excellent alternative.

Car Canopy Design Choices
called canopy car ports, or car tents, you'll find a size and style to fit almost
any requirement. For single-car needs, the 10x20 is the most common. Smaller sizes
are available for snowmobiles, motorcycles, and garden equipment. And there are
canopy garages that that reach up to 40' in length for boats and motor homes.
Here is a photo of a 10x20 steel frame, with a 9.5' height at the peak. The covering is 100% waterproof, UV-resistant, triple-layer polyethylene.
Weather is an important consideration in the type of shelter you choose. Except during heavy winds and very heavy snow, most types can be used year-round. But for areas with harsh weather, an open-sided design may be ineffective.
If weather is a factor, optional heavy-duty canvas side panels and a zippered door, can turn your auto shade canopy into a fully enclosed car tent design that will provide you with very effective protection against wind-blown dirt, rain and snow.
