First wind, bye bye. Turned mine into a mangled pile of metal, rope and tarp and I had one side tied down to a container and the other staked down.

I went with a sea shipping container to store two ATV's in, plus a fair amount of stuff. From what I've read on other sites, it's hard to keep them in place when the wind blows, and if you have it anchored really good, it tears apart. I would live with a tarp before spending the money on one of those.

You can rent shipping containers also.

We had one, and I agree that the wind worked it over pretty badly. I'd probably just tarp the UTV until you're done, or look into a storage unit rental if there's one nearby and you don't need the unit that much.

I'd buy a metal carport, before I bought one of those. If you are handy, you could build your own.

I think I'd do as Eddie said (use a cheap azz tarp) temporarily.

as others have stated, wind will get em quick ... Sun's UV rays destroy the tarp portion too pretty quickly if the wind doesn't get them first.

for a little more, you can get a much better metal car port ... http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/fod/5394115403.html

I was at Costco the other day, and they had a large plastic shed that was $300 that would fit 1 ATV in it perfect. I was thinking about getting it.

Beware of rodents. Stored my ranger in an old garage. Rats chewed up all the wires and made nests all in it. Cost me almost $500 to have them rewire everything.

I have seen the TSC Shelter logics withstand some serious crap out west if properly tied, fastened, and aimed... don't point the end wall into the prevailing wind, lift is usually what kills them.

If you could get it beside a house or barn or something to deflect some wind, that would help

I agree with Eddie about the shipping container. After the 2nd pair of 4 wheelers being stolen I bought a 20 ft one.
